Going on a trip with trekker freaks and an ELB 1200 in hot and sweaty conditions, with water and dirt.

Everything we love at Elinchrom.

A Trek

Anthony had this great idea: to go trekking with some friends somewhere in the Var in France. In a hot and sunny environment, we knew this was going to be a real challenge as a photographer. So we said to Anthony, take the ELB 1200 with you and see what you come up with.

Challenge Accepted

Anthony accepted the challenge and he went off with 2 friends who love trekking of all sorts. As a photographer, he thought a trip with trekker freaks was the perfect opportunity for some photo reportage, he came back with some fantastic results.


Hot, Dirt & Sand

As he said to us, "I wanted to test it in really tough conditions. The trek gave me the chance to use the ELB 1200 unit it in the dirt and sand, around rocks and trees, near water and during some pretty hot weather (nearly 40°C)."




Trust Your Gear

I knew from using other battery power packs that I needed a battery that could resist high temperatures. I experienced a few overheats during a sports shoot in high temperatures a couple of months back, so I wanted to test the ELB 1200 in similar circumstances.

I have to say, the unit never let me down!

Lightweight & Power

When I took the ELB 1200, I was really surprised by how light the battery is, and having light equipment in extremely high temperatures gave me more freedom of movement.

In addition, given the area I was covering and the intense summer days, the power of the unit was a huge advantage in overpowering that blinding sun.


Rock Solid

I didn't spare the ELB 1200. It has been dropped on rocks, in the sand, and carried over trees and water.

This thing is as solid as a rock!

    Original Price: $1,839.99

    Built to be as portable as possible and weighing only 0.28 kg (0.62 lbs.), this head not only packs well but it is mountable in situations that would be impossible for a full-sized flash head. It also integrates a daylight balanced LED modelling lamp that produces the equivalent of 50W of tungsten light output.

    The Pro designation denotes the system’s head which offers good flash duration but can also be used - to some extent - for Hi-Sync with the optional EL-Skyport transmitter Plus HS.

    This set includes the latest EL-Skyport transmitter Plus. A strong and robust design which enables photographer to simply trigger and adjust flash power up to 200 m (656 feet) away, optimize reception by its swivel functionality and is powered by AA batteries. It also includes a high quality bag dedicated to location which is fully adaptable to your needs.

    Rotalux Deep Octabox 70 cm (27.5")


    The ideal softbox on location.

    The Deep Octa 70 cm is an excellent crispy and direct light when used without the internal and external diffusers. Perfect for beauty and fashion. The narrow shape reduces the spread of light and offers sharper shadows compared to standard sized octagonal softboxes.

    Another innovative feature which distinguishes Elinchrom softboxes from others is the lightweight dedicated speedring, which utilizes knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the stainless rods which form the frame of the box, to the ring. This allows easy assembly of the box in a de-tensioned state. The user then simply pivots the sockets 90 degrees until they lock into place to tension it for use. As a further convenience Elinchrom provides a durable, dot-patterned nylon case with a flat bottom designed to hold the de-tensioned Rotalux without dissembling it. The 27.5" (70 cm) Deep Octa shape features a large surface area which renders a "wrap-around" light quality especially when used at close range. It is ideal portraiture.

    Quick Setup, Breakdown

    Lightweight, dedicated speedrings utilize knurled, spring-action sockets to connect the 8 stainless rods which form the frame of the box.
