First look at the Elinchrom ELB1200

Well its world photography day again, a day for sharing all things photographic and enjoying the the sense of belonging that brings.

As an Elinchrom ambassador I recently got to test shoot with the new ELB 1200.  Whilst I had it with me I did a quick Vlog about its cool features in a hastily Iphone filmed “down and dirty” first look / first impressions, its long in my usual rambling, maybe that should be shambling, fashion but there are a LOT of new features on this kit, so please forgive me. You’ve no idea how much I hate Vlogging (I’m certain I don’t look or sound like that) but it at least gets my “share” out quicker than if I had to type sensibly

Despite not being in the office I could not let today pass without wishing you all a fantastic day, especially if you are shooting, so here’s my share for world photography day, whatever you are doing I hope you have a blast!

    So, notwithstanding that you do indeed look and sound just like that 😉, this was a great first look at the EKB1200. I love my Rangers, but there are some great additional features in the new lights. A BTS & lighting set up for the images of Lily and Rhi would be fab!
