I am trying to confirm the guide number of this unit with actual tests so I'm asking if anyone with an Elinchrom Ranger RX (and an accurate exposure meter) can test it?
Distance = 3m/10 feet
ISO = 100
Meter = Please use 1/125 sec (it shouldn't matter as long as it's not set to a very short speed), incident reading
Power = Full, allowing ample time to recharge
Reflector = Standard 48 degree
NOT in a narrow hallway with white walls, any medium/large sized room will do.
The Elinchrom manual (from Elinchroms web site) suggests an aperture reading slightly under F22 at 3m/10 feet (F64 at 1m according to the manual, but I think this is wrong, a 'typo'). Although I can't find the guide number on Elinchroms site every other place says the guide number is 128, if F64 at 2m.
Thanks in advance.
