The 500Ws ELC 500 Studio Monolight from Elinchrom is yet another step forward in the evolution of its monolight design. Besides the impressive features we’ve come to expect from this brand, the ELC 500 added quite a bit more.

An intelligent low noise, temperature-activated fan keeps the head cool and lengthens the life of the flash tube.

Power, variable continuously over 7 stops from 7 to 500Ws, can be mimicked by the 20W (120W incandescent equivalent) proportional LED modeling lamp to preview your effects. Although triggering with a sync cord is possible, the ELC 500 has a built-in 20-channel receiver that not only allows you to make wireless adjustments to power, the modeling light, and more at distances up to 656′, but will allow TTL control of the light by seven compatible, major camera brands with separate purchase of an EL Skyport transmitter.

Yet another sign of versatility is the ELC 500’s 100 to 240V power supply that allows you to use it anywhere in the world. The flash head is also of course, compatible Elinchrom’s world-renowned, expansive array of light modifiers.

Even non-Elinchrom units and speedlights can be integrated into the wireless setup via the Elinchrom Skyport Receiver Plus.
