Always Prepared

The ELCs are ready to go the moment inspiration strikes you. With Auto-On, the unit is always in standby mode with your previous settings saved, and the onboard TTL speeds up dialling in your next exposure. The Manual Lock function enables a quick switch from TTL to Manual without losing exposure settings for quick adjustments or to explore creative effects.

Engineered to Last

Every aspect of the ELC 125 and 500 has been designed and rigorously tested to deliver maximum reliability and extended lifetime. Elinchrom created the ELCs to last through your next adventure. And the one after. And many after that.

Stay Cool Under Pressure

With Elinchrom’s Smart Pro-Active Cooling, the ELCs learn your shooting style and adapt their cooling cycles around it, never interrupting your creative flow. Plus, their cleverly engineered airflow design and low-noise, speed-controlled fan can handle the heaviest of workloads.

Explore More

As important as a solid studio strobe is, the light modifier is where the real magic happens. The bayonet Quick-Lock system grants you direct access to Elinchrom’s world-renowned light modifiers. Combined with the ELC’s bright, daylight LED modelling lamp to aid your pre-visualisation. The potential to evolve your lighting style is endless.

Unlimited Flexibility

Your equipment should never limit you. Whether you are experimenting in your living room or working in a large studio, the ELC 125 and 500 can acclimate. Both heads have a wide power range and can be powered down to 7 Ws so that you can reach your desired depth of field or add only a hint of light. Plus, with HSS up to 1/8000s, you can freeze motion, overpower ambient light and darken backgrounds.

Edit Less, Deliver Faster

Elinchrom’s precise colour science and accuracy over the whole power range enable you to deliver professional and consistent results to your clients with less wasted time and money in post-production.

Wireless Freedom

Never miss a shot with Elinchrom’s Skyport radio-frequency system compatible with 7 camera brands. You also get intuitive control of flash settings from your camera and your computer. Even non-Elinchrom units and speedlights can be integrated into the wireless setup via the Elinchrom Skyport Receiver Plus.

Illuminated Group Colour Indicators - The side logos illuminate in the given colour group for immediate visual identification.

Robust Metal Tilt-Head - Practical ergonomics and a two-way metal tilt-head let you adjust large modifiers swiftly and precisely.
