No idea, but someone needs to buy one and tell us all about it. :)

The only thing I'm after is the Quadra caps and maybe the upgraded bracket.

The sad thing about the new bracket they didn't address the main problem with it. The spigot holder is the same.

Fingers crossed the internals are better. Will definitely wait for the reviews.

My existing one works good with smaller modifiers, but something like the Mola Demi or a larger box and it's just not stable.

^ part of the reason I gave up on the quadra, and moved to the profoto B1

Where everyone?

Haven't had the Elinchroms out in a little while; I've been using the Speedlights a lot.

Got a big shoot coming up next Friday though (the 26th) - some real cast photos for the Big Bang Boom cabaret. Taking a little more time and preparation than the quickie pre-show portraits that I do each month, preparing a set and furniture/props/etc. These are some of the top burlesque/fringe/alt performers across central Florida, so I've got to really make sure I do it right. I'm currently at 51% anticipation, 48% trepidation, and 1% hiding under the bed.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it kinda hilarious that the cover photo of the paraglider almost certainly did NOT need any Elinchrom lighting products?


That FS30 Fresnel is riiiiight up my alley. Oh boy, oh boy. I've been using simple umbrella reflectors and the Maxi Lite to emulate the hard, direct look of a hot stage light, but that Fresnel is really dreamy. Burlesque girls, look out, here it comes.

I hope the price is not prohibitive - it's not something that will make me any money back.

The paraglider is strobe lit, probably took a fair amount of watt seconds to do that.

Photographer is Tristan Shu, looks like he does a lot of paraglider work.

Hah, thanks for pointing that out. It looks like the setting sun peeking over the mountaintop, falling on the paraglider and nothing else.

I would love to see a wider shot so we can see where the strobe is, in relation to the photographer and the subject. Based on the distance from camera to subject, and the angle of the shadows on the subject, the strobe has to be pretty far away from the camera. And based on the distance from strobe to subject, it's gotta be a pretty dang powerful strobe (like you said), and tightly focused. Wonder if it's separately manned by a lighting assistant, with a little viewfinder to track the subject to make sure the light is aimed right?

They could have just had several rather than one really powerful head.
