Summary: This is very good lighting. solid construction easy to use. The defuesers and accessories are very easy to work with. The light is very consistant exposure to exposure. I have 3 now not a single issue.
Pros: Consistant, Durable, Good Color Value, Long-Lasting
Summary: I have 2 of these sets and they work perfect in my studio and on location shoots. The light, color, and exposure is dead on every single shot. Having 2 transmitters is very useful since I often have a second shooter, or just to keep in my pocket for controlling the lights when I am at the computer shooting products tethered.
Pros: Attach Securely, Cool running, Durable, Good Color Value, Long-Lasting, Portability, Powerful
Summary: I have been shooting with Elinchrom lights for a few years now. I recently purchased the 600 Rx for its higher W/s (than the 400 BX) as well as its low flash duration (For children photography, shorter flash duration certainly helps since they move so much). I am very happy with this light so far. It is very consistent in color temperature and flash power. In my opinion, dollar by dollar, Elinchrom mono lights are better than Profoto.
Summary: Bought these for lighting arenas, and found they are great for general portraits too. I have found the units very strong and durable. Polycarbonate shell very durable. Short flash duration makes them ideal for sports, 6 stop range makes them flexible enough for everything else.
Pros: Attach Securely, Durable, Good Color Value, Long-Lasting, Powerful, Short Flash Duration
Summary: These units have a flimsy plastic housing that cracks easily. I've had a handle break off of one unit just by picking it up! Another cracked in half after falling off a table and landing on thick carpet. Elinchrom equipment is the most undependable flash equipment I have ever owned. I've had 5 Elin. Mono lights and one 2 head pack set-up, and all have given me problems. Photogenic, (I can hardly believe this myself) is a better system.
