Elinchrom has joined forces with Godox to offer AC/DC portable lighting to location photographers.
Elinchrom distributor Mac Group US is offering a special deal on the Godox Leadpower LP800X battery inverter when bought with Elinchrom mains-powered studio lighting kits. The LP800X, normally $799, is available for $499 when purchased alongside the following bundles:
- ELC Pro HD 500/500 set ($2200)
- ELC Pro HD 1000/1000 set ($3000)
- BRX 500/500 set ($1322+)
- D-Lite RX 4/4 set ($950)
“Elinchrom has many lighting solutions including compact lighting and power pack kits that offer photographers a wide range of options and accessories,” said Mac Group in a press release. “Adding a Godox Inverter lets them stay portable without sacrificing on power.”
The Leadpower LP800X provides three mains outputs and has a removable 12000mAh LiFePO4 battery module which can be quickly swapped without unplugging any of your equipment. According to the manufacturer, a single charge will provide 500 full-power flashes for a 600Ws studio lamp and will grant a two-second recycle time for flashes rated up to 2,400Ws. A 100W halogen lamp can run continuously for 80 minutes. There are also three USB sockets for charging mobile devices.
As part of this partnership, Elinchrom hasn’t bothered to puts its own badge on Godox’s Leadpower LP800X, which is perhaps an indication of Godox’s improving reputation as a manufacturer of professional-grade lighting gear.
The LP800X has been on the market for a while already, appearing under the original Godox branding as well being rebadged by the likes of Adorama Flashpoint, Dynalite, Pixapro, Seaport Digital, Quantuum, Fomei et al. UK Elinchrom dealer The Flash Centre has been selling the Godox LP800X for a while too.
