Hi gang: For those of you who have seen me out on tour, or in my lighting classes on KelbyOne online, you know I’m a big fan of Elinchrom studio and location lighting, and today I fell a little more in love with them.

The video above is from our own RC Concepcion who takes you through the new Elinchrom Skyport Plus HS (it’s a wireless trigger/transmitter/control unit with built-in Hi-Sync done right, thanks to a collaboration with the folks from Phottix).

We’re talking firing studio strobes (or strobes on location) at 1/8000 of a second, going way beyond the X-sync of your DSLR. This is really cool stuff, so check out RC’s video above and you’ll see what all the fuss is about (and there’s plenty of fuss to go around)!

Congrats to Elinchrom and Phottix for putting two great groups of engineers together to help give us the tools to help open that next level of creativity. Really cool stuff!

Hope you all have a better than average Tuesday!
