Imagine having all the features you could possibly want in one single transmitter.
With the Elinchrom Transmitter Pro, you can access TTL (Through the Lens) on your Elinchrom ONE, ELB 500 TTL, ELC 125 and ELC 500 to give you a head start with your lighting. Conveniently, High Speed Sync and Hi-Sync are automatic and enable seamless synchronisation at speeds of up to 1/8000s with select Elinchrom units. Freeze motion, darken and overpower ambient light or use a wider aperture: it’s all that simple.
The Elinchrom Transmitter Pro is more than a trigger for flash units, it’s the key to a whole new world.
Set up fast, get real-time display of your remote flash settings on your LCD screen and use that 200m (656 feet) working range for full control.
You won’t miss a beat with the Elinchrom Transmitter Pro.
Sync any compatible Elinchrom flash unit at up to 1/8000s. Manage them as a group or individually. Make the most of the ODS setting to customize your Hi-Sync or HSS timing in any conditions and achieve flawless results.
Choose a wider aperture, freeze motion, darken backgrounds and overpower the sun at unprecedented distances.
The Elinchrom Transmitter Pro opens the way.
Compatible with all major camera brands, the Elinchrom Transmitter Pro runs on 2 classic AA batteries, so you can change them anywhere and prolong your adventure.
Elinchrom’s most advanced transmitter ever gives you the ability to control and visualise the power and modelling light levels of up to 10 Elinchrom units directly from your Elinchrom Transmitter Pro.

To run the software, please follow these instructions:
1. Right-click on the .zip file you downloaded, and extract it to a folder of your choice (e.g. Desktop)
2. Go to the newly extracted folder (in this case EL_Updater) and double click on the .exe file EL_Updater.exe (the one with the Elinchrom logo as an icon)
ODS means Over Drive Sync in Hi-Sync mode.
It enables to fine-tune the Transmitter Pro trigger signal to optimize exposure at high shutter speeds while gaining more light.
The ODS Setup offers adjustment from 0.1 to 5.0 ms or can be switched off.
The ODS value will vary depending on the camera and the flash unit used, and must be adjusted manually.
A list of compatible cameras and flash units with the Transmitter Pro is available here.
Units equipped with a plug-in Transceiver RX are limited in remote features.
These units can however be triggered and controlled (but with no visual feedback) by the Transmitter Pro.
For more information about compatibility, please check this page.
Yes, you can use it but in manual mode only.
Only the hot-shoe middle contact is available to trigger Elinchrom flash units.
You can use a Canon Transmitter Pro on a Nikon camera or a Nikon Transmitter Pro on a Canon in manual mode.
You can still control power and see the unit displayed on the Transmitter.
Keep in mind HS, HSS and ODS features are not available and will not have any effect.
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.
If you apply sync mode settings (ELSP) to the Transmitter, you need to apply the same settings to the flash unit (same as changes in the frequency channel or group settings).
We recommend using the unit and transmitter always in Normal Sync mode, you gain maximum distance range and only use the HS function for faster shutter speeds, up to 1/8000s.
Hi-Sync or HSS mode is detected automatically.
Enabling the Hi-Sync/HSS feature is very simple but different for each camera.
However, some cameras need a specific setup to be able to engage Hi-Sync or HSS.
How to setup hi-sync / hss mode.
Yes, TTL Elinchrom units integrated into an existing Elinchrom setup with Hi-Sync and HSS altogether work seamlessly.
The ELB 400 with a Quadra HS head and the ELB 500 TTL with an ELB 500 head are so very similar from power output. Whether one is more powerful than the other now depends upon the individual camera.
HSS offers the advantage of less exposure banding and no gradient in the exposure than HS.
Skyport Plus HS is the previous name of the Transmitter Pro and is not used anymore.
Starting from firmware 2.1, bringing TTL compatibility on compatible units, the Skyport Plus HS became Transmitter Pro.
The Elinchrom ONE, the ELB 500 TTL, and the ELC 125 / 500 are compatible with TTL along with the Transmitter Pro.
