When Elinchrom let me know that they were launching the ELB 500 TTL, I was obviously excited. Any advanced technology in a product that is already crucially beneficial is bound to raise the bar in my final product.
§When photographing weddings, time is of the essence and therefore achieving perfect exposure quickly is critical.
The new TTL capabilities of the ELB 500 TTL are flawless and absolutely ideal for weddings. And to add to it, all my existing light modifiers fitted in seamlessly with the new system. Being able to shoot in rapidly changing ambient light conditions, with perfectly accurate flash output, speeds up my workflow considerably as I don’t need to constantly check exposures and adjust the strobe output – the ELB 500 TTL does it all for me.
This enables me to concentrate on the emotional connection with my subjects and get the very best of them. One is also able to switch from TTL to manual so easily when needing to create images with a more theatrical or dramatic feel.
