    "The Skyport HS offers reliability that hasn't been available with any transmitter before now. It incorporates so many advanced features that it opens up a whole new world in flash photography. I haven't been this excited about a new product announcement in a long time!"

    Michael Clark - Adventure Photographer

    Why Skyport Plus HS?

     

    The Skyport Plus HS is more than just a trigger for flash units.

    Control & visualise power settings of your Elinchrom units

    Visual feedback

    Control of all your lighting setup through a visual feedback interface with the display of power levels and modelling lamp settings.

    Hi-Sync technology

    Once Hi-Sync is activated, anyone can go beyond the normal X-sync of your DSLR camera. An 1/8000s shutter speed is now accessible to all, depending on the digital camera and type of flash unit.

    Extra distance range

    The distance range, 200 m (656 feet) outdoors and 60 m (196 feet) indoors, will enable to work under challenging circumstances without missing an important moment.

     

    No extra receiver

    Any flash unit with EL-Skyport capability, either built-in or external (like Transceiver RX for Style RX, Digital RX and Ranger RX series) is compatible.

    Visual interface

    The large LCD display features two-way control that lets you see the exact power of every light in your setup right on the transmitter. Users can control each light's power level and modelling lamp setting directly from the transmitter, which instantly shows the updated power settings.

    ODS (Over Drive Sync)

    ODS enables users to fine tune the Skyport Plus HS transmitter's trigger signal to optimize exposure at high shutter speeds while gain more light.

    Remote control

    Not only a trigger device; it is also a remote control for up-to 10 Elinchrom flash units with built-in receivers. Control and set the flash power and the modelling lamp in 4 Groups or individually. 

    Improved reliability

    The EL-Skyport HS has a total of 20 frequency channels that can be used for either Normal or Speed mode. Users can instantly distinguish which sync mode they are in as the backlit display glows green for normal mode, and red for speed mode. They can also enjoy a range up to 200 m (656’) outdoors and up to 60 m (196’) indoors.

    Compatibility

    The EL-Skyport HS represents a seamless extension of the EL-Skyport family since it is also compatible with the three previous generations of flash units (including the EL-Skyport Transceiver RX module for Style RX, Digitial RX, and Ranger RX systems, the integrated EL-Skyport modules for D-Lite RX, BRX, ELC Pro HD and ELB series.).
