    Transmitter Compatibility

     

     

     

    Elinchrom produced three different EL-Skyport versions over the past years.

    Every new generation did offer additional new features and improved performance, but still it is possible to use the Hi-Sync feature with earlier versions of the EL-Skyport receivers either built-in Elinchrom flash units or as a plug-in module.

    Please find in the compatibility chart your version and the available features, when used with the latest EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS or Transmitter PRO.

     

    1st Generation

    EL-Skyport Transceiver RX plug-in module for Style RX, Digital RX and Ranger RX.

    The units with the transceiver RX can be detected but their power levels will not be displayed.

    Their power levels can however be adjusted.

    2nd Generation

    Built-in EL-Skyport module Mk1 for BRX, D-Lite RX, Quadra, Quadra Hybrid.

    These units can be detected with their power levels displayed and adjusted.

    3rd Generation

    Built-in EL-Skyport module Mk2 for ELC Pro HD and ELB.

    These units can be detected with their power levels displayed and adjusted.

    This generation also offers extended distance range.

    FAQ

    Transmitter and Unit Compatibility

    Which Elinchrom units are fully compatible with the Elinchrom Transmitters (Skyport Plus HS / Transmitter Pro)?

    A compatibility chart with flash units, settings and functionnalities is available on our website.
    Please see below:

    http://www.elinchrom.com/support/ELSP-HS.html

    HSS, Hi-Sync, HS, HyperSync?

    HSS, Hi-Sync, HS, HyperSync. What's all this?

    All these allow you to achieve high shutter speed.

    • Hi-Sync (HS) is an Elinchrom technology which is similar to HyperSync from PocketWizard but is much easier to use and produces better results.
    • High Speed Sync (HSS), on the other hand, in general is a less powerful tool.
      But, with ELB 500 TTL, we have been able to optimise HSS to the point that it is not dissimilar in power to Hi-Sync, thus making Elinchrom's HSS the most powerful HSS from comparable powered units on the market to date.

       

    More information about HS and HSS technologies:

    http://www.elinchrom.com/learn/hss-hs.html

    What is ODS?

    What is the ODS feature on the Skyport HS / Transmitter PRO?

    ODS means Over Drive Sync.

    It enables to fine tune the Skyport HS's 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.

    Transmitter user manual

    Where can I find the manual for the Elinchrom Transmitters?

    Skyport HS / Transmitter PRO Firmware update

    How can I update the firmware of my Skyport Plus HS / Transmitter PRO?

    Use a Canon Transmitter on a Nikon camera and reverse

    Is the Skyport Plus HS / Transmitter PRO for Nikon also usable on manual when mounted on a Canon or other brands? I don't need the Hi-Sync feature, just for triggering.

    Yes you can use it manually.

    Only the hot-shoe middle contact is available to trigger Elinchrom flash units. 

    You can use a Canon Elinchrom Transmitter on a Nikon or a Nikon Elinchrom Transmitter on a Canon in manual mode. You can still controll power and see the unit displayed on the Transmitter.

    But Hi-Sync and ODS features are not available and will not have any effect!

    HS and HSS in the same setup

    Can the ELB 500 TTL be integrated in an existing Elinchrom setup with Hi-Sync and HSS altogether?

    Yes, it works seamlessly.

    Skyport Plus HS or Transmitter PRO?

    All user settings, except the display contrast, will be reset.

    Transmitter SR port connector

    The SR port of the Transmitters Skyport Plus HS / Transmitter PRO is a 2.5 mm Flash Sync Output Socket.

    This port can be used to connect and trigger directly a flash unit or a flash trigger with a sync cable.

    The devices must offer a flash sync input socket to enable a direct cable connection.
