Top Customer Reviews
I read a lot of reviews and have tried several solutions to my needs in the past. From using multiple speedlites with dozens of AA batteries to proper studio lighting attached to a pure sine wave inverter connected to a motorcycle battery (that set up is similar to that used in caravans to get mains voltage from a car battery). I got hold of a light weight 400 watt second chinese unit for about £400 which seemed promising and offered high speed sync unto 8000th of a second and I would have been praising that if it hadn't gone wrong after a month and taken months to send off and come back only to go wrong again. I've not seen anything on the market to compare to the quadra.
In terms of these Elinchrom Quadra units themselves my first impressions were thats small and neat but I wonder if it will break, and I still think that to some degree, the heads look bit cheap. It's not built to the same standards as the profoto b2's but it doesn't cost the earth either. The battery-control unit is smart about the same size as a large sandwich box. They are bringing out lithium batteries which will be smaller lighter (about 1/3rd the weight) and more powerful, if they are available as part of the kit when you're reading this then I would look into those.Read more ›
