Elinchrom debuts Mac, iDevice-compatible lighting products
Manfrotto Distribution, which specializes in the equipment and accessories industry for photography and imaging, has announced updates to three families of Elinchrom lighting products.
Aimed at making the photographer's life simpler, these updates provide complete remote control for all Elinchrom strobes, making them the only lighting manufacturer in the world to offer this capability, says Mark Astmann, MDUS Elinchrom product manager.
Elinchrom offers an inexpensive USB RX Transceiver that allows the photographer to see and control their strobes right from their Mac or PC. Elinchrom is also the only lighting company to offer remote control of their lights with an Apple iPhone, iPad or iTouch using the Skyport WiFi module, says Astmann.
The all new D-Lite RX ONE delivers approximately twice the light output of the strongest speedlight and is the smallest, most robust flash unit from Elinchrom, he adds. The D-Lite RX replaces the D-Lite-IT series and offers more ways of remotely controlling the lights.
The new BRX series replaces the BRXi series of strobes and now offer complete RX remote control support. The new Ranger Quadra Hybrid AS RX is a compact portable 400 Ws battery flash system for studio and outdoor use.
The Quadra Hybrid will be available in November; the D-Lite One, 2, 4, and the BRX 250 and 500 will be available in December. For more information, visit www.elinchrom.us .
