Elinchrom ELB 1200

Swiss lighting manufacturer Elinchrom has announced further details about the release of its upcoming ELB 1200 location lighting system.

To be released by the end of this month, the ELB 1200 will be available in four different kits: Pro To Go, Pro To Roll, Hi-Sync To Go and Hi-Sync To Roll. All will include the ELB 1200 pack itself, a Li-ion Air battery pack and a Snappy harness.

The “To Go” kits include a location bag whereas the “To Roll” kits have a rolling case, Grid Reflector and Umbrella Shallow. The “Pro” variants come with one Pro head and an EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus, whilst “Hi-Sync” means you get a Hi-Sync head and no transmitter is included.

The Pro and Hi-Sync To Go kits will be priced $3499 USD / €3749 EUR / £3299 GBP. The Pro and Hi-Sync To Roll kits will cost $3749 / €3999 / £3499.

What’s more, if you have an old Ranger RX or FreeStyle kit — Elinchrom’s older battery-powered pack-and-head systems, which the ELB 1200 replaces — then you can trade it in for $1000 / €900 / £900 off any of the aforementioned kits. They don’t even need to work, but you need a complete kit: pack, battery, charger and at least one head.

    Very high prices. It could be the next dead, just like Bowens

      Indeed. Everywhere one reads how the photography business has changed. Many newspapers do not employ photographers anymore, the days of sending photographers around the globe for assignments seem to be over. Wedding photographers are fighting the “burn to CD” competition. Yet the prices of this Elinchrome gear seems to suggest that there is still a lot of money to be earned, that there are still leftover pockets of the “golden age of photography”. Either the latter is true, or Elinchrome will be facing the same difficulties as other former high-end companies already have.
