Light Ever.

Focus on the stories you want to share.

The new ELB 500 TTL is the most powerful and portable TTL light ever designed for adventurous portrait and wedding photographers shooting both in studio and on location.

Enjoy Simplicity

Challenging situations are now simple thanks to TTL. Be ready within seconds and enjoy beautiful light right from the first shot. If necessary, quickly switch to manual on your transmitter to take full control of your ELB 500 TTL. Set the light you want, in all simplicity.

Power with HSS

With 500 Ws, the ELB 500 TTL easily overpowers the sun. The Elinchrom Pro transmitter gives you access to High Speed Sync to seamlessly synchronise at speeds of up to a 1/8000s. Freeze motion, darken and overpower the ambient light or use wider aperture. Creating a dreamy background has never been easier.

Endless Freedom

The ELB 500 TTL offers you total freedom in a lightweight and portable solution while still delivering 400 full power flashes on a single charge. Freeze motion in action mode or use HSS, rely on the battery for on location work or plug into the mains while shooting in studio with the Active Charge feature. No matter what you want to shoot, the ELB 500 TTL will deliver!

Exceptional Light Quality

10 times more powerful than an on-camera flash, the ELB 500 TTL doesn’t sacrifice light quality for ease of use and portability. Together with the Elinchrom range of accessories, benefit from perfect light distribution and generate high-end light quality with countless setups anywhere you shoot. With unmatched colour and light consistency, get the perfect shot right from the start.

Unlimited Creativity

The ELB 500 TTL offers you the fun and creativity of flash photography. It is the perfect all-round portable studio flash for all your imaging. The unit offers a wide variety of lighting possibilities when used with two asymmetrical controllable flash heads. Combined with the TTL and HSS feature, it’s effortless to use while delivering exceptional high-end results.

Seamless workflow

Your workflow becomes easier and faster than ever with the ELB 500 TTL thanks to the TTL and seamless HSS features. The unit works just like an assistant. Concentrate on the story you want to tell and produce better images in just a few steps.

When Elinchrom let me know that they were launching the ELB 500 TTL, I was obviously excited.

Any advanced technology in a product that is already crucially beneficial is bound to raise the bar in my final product. I was asked by Urban Outfitters Amsterdam in The Netherlands, to shoot a street wear campaign. Shooting fashion on the busy and atmospheric streets of Amsterdam was a fantastic experience and the ease of use of the ELB 500 TTL contributed greatly to the shoot. All my existing light modifiers fitted in seamlessly with the new, state-ofthe- art system. Usually, the unpredictable European weather and ever-changing ambient lighting conditions would slow down my workflow. However, the absolutely accurate TTL feature of the ELB 500 TTL, made my job an absolute pleasure. I could focus on the mood and aimed result of the shoot, without thinking about my gear at all.

Speed & Simplicity with TTL

The ELB 500 TTL is ideal for photographers who find themselves in time sensitive shooting environments where the inherent speed of TTL lets them capture images at the speed of life or for those who simply prefer the convenience of TTL.

The “Manual Lock” functionality allows photographers to get an initial “lock” on their exposure in TTL and then switch to manual mode to further adjust their exposure as they need or to explore different creative effects.

500 Ws Power & Performance in an incredibly portable package

The ELB 500 TTL is powerful enough to overpower the sun, delivers 400 full power flashes on a single charge and has a fast recycling time of 2 seconds at max power, ensuring you won’t miss an important moment.

The ELB 500 TTL head is smaller than speedlites yet delivers 10 times more power. It is lightweight enough to be mounted on a camera bracket or boom arm while on location.

The Versatility of HSS, Asymmetry & Active Charging

High Speed Sync lets photographers freeze motion with incredible sharpness, create a narrow depth of field, or darken overly bright backgrounds using a high shutter speed (up to 1/8000sec). With the new ELB 500 TTL, not having to worry about flash sync limitations or the time of day makes for a very liberating creative experience. Full asymmetry across two lamp connections provides a broader range of creative control.

Active Charging provides the freedom to charge the battery while actively shooting in studio, making it perfect for an uninterrupted workflow.

The ELB 500 TTL’s native Q-Mount (Quadra Mount) is seamlessly compatible with Elinchrom’s super-portable “Portalite” series of softboxes and can work with any of your favorite full-sized Elinchrom light modifiers.
