Hi-Sync is a technology that allows you to sync your camera with your flash unit at very high shutter speeds.
Technically, Elinchrom’s Hi-Sync (HS) feature is an easy-to-use and improved version of previous other systems in the field. By offering a Skyport Plus HS transmitter with built in Hi-Sync technology, triggering a camera with flash units at high shutter speed is now easy to achieve and very reliable!
For photographers, especially those doing outdoors photo shoots, often the 1/200th second flash sync speed represents a huge limitation.
By using Hi-sync technology, photographers are now able to:
Hi-Sync also offers more options than any other flash technology, since photographers have more light output at their disposal and no gradation (with the dedicated HS flash head).
For battery-powered units, Hi-Sync uses much less power than other technologies, because the flash head is firing normally instead of a continuous burst like HSS.
Mostly considered as a godsend for action photography, any kind of photographer can actually enjoy the benefits of using Hi-Sync. HS techniques can be used to create shallow depth of field in portraits or fashion shoots.
Whether you are an experienced photographer or an amateur, interested in portraits or action sports, Hi-Sync opens up a world of creative possibilities.
