    ELC 125 / ELC 500

    Press Release

    Elinchrom invites studio photographers to get out of their comfort zone with their newly unveiled mid-range compact studio flashes, ELC 125 & ELC 500.

    Built to handle creative adventures, the ELCs deliver maximum reliability, extended lifetime and enhanced usability.

    Built For Your Daily Adventure

    Built to handle creative adventures reliably and consistently, the ELCs feature TTL with Manual Lock, HSS, Smart Pro- Active Cooling, Auto-On, and direct compatibility with Elinchrom’s world-renown light modifiers.

    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.

    "By using my ELC's,

    I discovered how much more I can do in one single location."

    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.

    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 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, you can freeze motion, overpower ambient light and darken backgrounds.
