This button allows using other frequencies in case there is interference with other wireless networks.
The frequency settings must also be changed on the flash unit, otherwise no communication.
All cameras respecting the standard sync triggering system will work.
The Hi-Sync/HSS/TTL features on the Transmitter Pro are only available for Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, and Fujifilm cameras.
If you use a DSLR camera and want to trigger higher than 1/200s keep in mind that the final Sync Speed depends on the camera, camera electronics, mechanics, software, digital chip size, etc.
A faster synchronization is only possible with some mirrorless cameras that can sync up to 1/1000s or even shorter.
To go higher than the average speed of your DSLR camera (1/200s mostly), please look for the Transmitter Pro. The Hi-Sync or HSS feature allows you to go up to 1/8000s shutter speed.
The Skyport Transmitter system has 2 operating modes that offer different shooting functionalities.
NORMAL Sync Mode
Green LED – 200 m (656’) working range – Synchro is limited to X-Sync.
SPEED Sync Mode
Red LED – 100 m (328’) working range – Synchro is limited to X-Sync but enables faster shutter speeds only on digital medium format cameras.
To use shutter speeds of up to 1/8000s, the HS / Hi-Sync mode must be activated on the Transmitter Pro when used in both Normal and Speed mode.
You can trigger Elinchrom flashes with Speedlights.
For a correct synchronization, you need to use the pre-flash feature of the photocell.
Now the photocell is correctly adjusted and will only trigger with the main flash.
