This portable, compact and extremely versatile lighting system is perfect for those photographers who like to travel light, but packing enough power to overpower the sun.

Imagine positioning yourself at the bottom of an icy crevasse with a studio flash system, waiting for skiers to leap above you. That was Tristan Shu’s crazy idea. The new Elinchrom ELB400 flash system was part of the winning formula for this exceptional photo shoot.

We’ve included an exclusive Behind The Scene’s look with Tristan Shu during the shooting in Chamonix, France. Below you will find more the product specifications for the Elinchrom ELB 400 Lighting system as well as links to the different kit options on Orms Direct.
