ELB 1200 Action Head
For ELB 1200
The ELB 1200 Action Head from Elinchrom is designed to be paired with the Elinchrom ELB 1200. It is one of three optional ELB 1200 heads; Pro, Hi-Sync, or Action. This Action head offers the fastest flash duration to freeze moving subjects with the normal flash sync shutter speed of your camera, without the use of Hi-Sync technology. When shooting with a Hasselblad or shooting with a DSLR at the standard sync speed or below, you should use the Action head. The optional Hi-Sync head is the best fit for Hi-Sync, and the optional Pro Head is for universal use.
If you are shooting in low light and want to drag the shutter, i.e. use a slow shutter speed like 1/15th second, but also want to stop the motion of a moving subject, then the Action flash head is the one you want. Keep in mind that this head is not recommended for use with Hi-Sync.
The head features a robust lightweight aluminium housing and tilt head, the option to use 7 mm and 8 mm umbrellas, and a powerful 92 CRI daylight LED for both still and video use with full-sized Elinchrom accessories. The cooling fan can be switched to silent mode to further benefit video use, and a new short glass dome makes the head more compact and protects the flashtube and the LED.
