Previously known as Skyport Plus HS. This product is now named Transmitter PRO since firmware 2.1
TTL, HSS or Hi-Sync. All features a photographer may need are now compiled in one single transmitter. With a visual feedback interface, have access to High Speed Sync or Hi-Sync to seamlessly synchronise at speeds of up to 1/8000s. Freeze motion, darken and overpower the ambient light or use wider aperture. The Elinchrom Skyport Transmitter Pro is more than just a trigger for flash units, it is the entrance to an open world with endless freedom.
The transmitter attaches easily and securely to the hotshoe with its bayonet locking system and is powered by 2x AA batteries. It also features an integrated AF illuminator for fast focusing and a mini-USB socket for firmware updates.
With the EL-Skyport Transmitter Pro for Nikon, Elinchrom introduced a game-changing wireless solution that’s compatible with three generations of transceivers and flash heads and offers Hi-Sync flash sync speeds up to 1/8000 sec.
The 20-channel transmitter is immediately recognizable by its large LCD screen that displays every light in your setup. The Elinchrom Skyport Transmitter Pro will control the modeling light and flash intensity of BRX, D-Lite RX, ELC Pro HD, and ELB flash heads as well as the EL-Skyport Transceiver RX for the Style RX, Digital RX, and Ranger RX systems. Operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency, it has an enhanced wireless range too, triggering and controlling your flash heads at a distance of 196′ indoors and 656′ outdoors.
One of the transceivers most exciting features is Hi-Sync technology that lets you use shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second, far shorter than your camera’s standard sync speed. Whether you use it to overpower the sun, freeze action, darken backgrounds, or select wider apertures, Hi-Sync opens up a new realm of exposure possibilities. You can even fine tune the transmitter’s trigger signal with ODS (Over Drive Sync) for optimal exposures at high shutter speeds.
The EL-Skyport Transmitter Pro runs on AA batteries and has a future-proofing mini-USB connection for firmware updates.
Visual Feedback Interface: The large LCD display of the Skyport Pro features two-way control via a Visual Feedback Interface that lets you see the exact power of every light in your setup right on the transmitter. Users control each light’s power level and modeling lamp setting directly from the Skyport transmitter, which instantly shows the updated power settings. Control of all your lighting setup through a visual feedback interface with the display of power levels and modelling lamp settings.
Hi-Sync Technology: Go beyond the X-Sync of your camera. Photographers can simply switch to Hi-Sync mode and access sync speeds up to 1/8000s to freeze motion, overpower the sun, darken backgrounds, or use a wider aperture. The new ODS (Over Drive Sync) enables users to fine tune the Skyport plus HS transmitter’s trigger signal to optimize exposure at high shutter speeds while gaining up to two more f-stops of light. Anyone can go beyond the normal X-sync of his DSLR camera. An 1/8000s shutter speed is now accessible to all, depending on the digital camera and type of flash unit.
Impressive Wireless Range: The Skyport Pro has 20 frequency channels that can be used for either Normal or Speed mode, and a wireless range of 656′ outdoors and 196′ indoors. It also features a mini-USB socket for firmware updates. Users can instantly distinguish what sync mode they are in since the backlit display glows green for normal sync mode, and red for speed sync mode.
Compatibility: The Skyport Pro represents a seamless extension of the EL-Skyport family since it is also compatible with the three previous generations of flash units including the EL- Skyport Transceiver RX module for Style RX, Digital RX, and Ranger RX systems and the integrated EL-Skyport modules for the BRX, D-Lite RX, ELC Pro HD, and ELB series. The Skyport Pro adds synchronization capability and two-way control functionality to all Elinchrom lights with EL-Skyport capability. Please note, HSS and TTL is only available with the ELB 500 TTL. Hi-Sync is only available with the D-Lite RX 4, the ELB 400 and the ELB 1200.
LCD Display: The LCD display shows each strobe unit’s power settings and allows for full control of all strobes right on top of the Skyport Pro. The individual strobes show up automatically on the screen, and you can adjust the settings on top of the transceiver or on the strobe itself. You can see and control up to 10 different EL strobes with the HS transmitter.
AF Assist Light: The Skyport Pro also includes an autofocus assist feature to help cameras focus in low light situations. This avoids using the flash unit’s modeling light which drains battery power.
