Great to be able to try the New Elinchrom ELB1200

Sometimes I forget!

I forget that “everyday” for me can actually be extraordinary but I’ve sadly sort of become a little desensitised to it.  Then every know and then we get days that remind me what a privilege it is to work in this awesome profession.

As an Elinchrom ambassador I got my hands on the new ELB1200 and was asked to put it through its paces and give some feedback.  So I’ve shot with it and we are in the process of editing up a few videos.  This is the first.



I could wax lyrical about it and try and expand my “wordsmitherie” or I can just say watch the video, see it in action see whats its capable of… Hi speed sync was crucial here, not to freeze action but to darken down the really bright environment, you even get a brief synopsis on what I think of he lights at the end of the behind the scenes shoot.

Anyway I hope you enjoy the glimpse as much as I enjoyed playing with the new ELB 1200.
