An 1/8000s shutter speed is and accessible to all.
Extra distance range
The distance range (200 m (656 feet) outdoors and 60 m (196 feet) indoors) will enable to work under challenging circumstances without missing an important moment.

What is Hi-Sync

Hi-Sync 1/8000th sec – f/3.5 – ISO 800
Hi-Sync is the exclusive Elinchrom technology to go beyond the X-Sync of your Sony DSLR camera.
It's easier than ever to setup and trigger your DSLR camera
up to 1/8000s shutter speed.
This allows you to do the following:
– Freeze motion
– Overpower the Sun
– Darken background
– Use wider aperture
“The Skyport HS offers reliability that hasn't been available with any transmitter before now. It incorporates so many advanced features that it opens up a whole new world in flash photography.
I haven't been this excited about a new product announcement in a long time!”

Visual feedback interface
The large LCD display features two-way control that lets you see the exact power of every light in your setup right on the transmitter. Users can control each light's power level and modelling lamp setting directly from the transmitter, which instantly shows the updated power settings.
ODS (Over Drive Sync)
ODS enables users to fine tune the Skyport Plus HS transmitter's trigger signal to optimize exposure at high shutter speeds while gain more light.
Not only a trigger device; it is also a remote control for up-to 10 Elinchrom flash units with built-in receivers. Control and set the flash power and the modelling lamp in 4 Groups or individually.
The EL-Skyport HS has a total of 20 frequency channels that can be used for either Normal or Speed mode. Users can instantly distinguish which sync mode they are in as the backlit display glows green for normal mode, and red for speed mode. They can also enjoy a range up to 200 m (656â) outdoors and up to 60 m (196â) indoors.
The EL-Skyport HS represents a seamless extension of the EL-Skyport family since it is also compatible with the three previous generations of flash units (including the EL-Skyport Transceiver RX module for Style RX, Digitial RX, and Ranger RX systems, the integrated EL-Skyport modules for D-Lite RX, BRX, ELC Pro HD and ELB series.)
The transmitter attaches easily and securely to the hotshoe with its bayonet locking system and is powered by 2x AA batteries. It also features an integrated AF illuminator for fast focusing and a mini-USB socket for firmware updates.
