I called today my dealer who told me to wait to get the actual price of Enlinchrom FXRi 250. He said, it costs around 7400 INR which comes to 150 USD

Those strobes are so cheap? Or he is wrong telling me the price?

It's called BXRi in the states. B&H sells them for $482.95 each after you add it to the cart.

In the UK a BX250Ri cost me £344, and that was the cheapest price I've seen, not repeated since (now £366). The FX200/400Ri are only available to the Indian market.
If they are that price, it would be cheaper for me to pay the P&P and import tax. :D

The 135cm Octa just cost me £260

Its the price of the small deflectors that kills me, I just paid £25 for a translucent deflector, a pair of silver and gold are around about the £35/50 mark, depending on size.

Sorry for going off topic, but Steve how is the swivel mount on the BXRi? Is it better than the D-lites?

Personally I find it ok, its definitely stronger and better than the D-Lites mount, but to be honest I cant see a lot of difference between the BXRi and the original BX mounts. The BX has a metal plate for the secondary umbrella, whereas the BXRi is plastic, and the knobs are a slightly different shape.

Whether the BXRi uses a cheaper type plastic, I really couldn't say.

I'm very careful with my gear, so it doesn't get the bashing that some pro's may dish out, after all these are just tools for them, but for me they are much more :D.

Thanks Steve,

I was wondering if it would be possible to hang a 5ft octabox without it breaking the swivel mount off at the housing, like I did with my D-Lite. :)

I believe the BXri's are made in india, so I can only assume the FXri's are as well. Maybe there is a chance that because you are in india they sell them to you drastically cheaper than to the rest of us because they're already in India and thus don't have to export them at all.

Seems almost too good to be true, but I hope not! Let us know how it goes....

On the Elinchrom site, the BXRi's now replace the BX and FX range, I would therefore be surprised if they couldn't support the same range of modifiers.

Having said that, looking at the Elinchrom site, the D-Lites are listed under semi-professional compacts, the RX range under professional compacts - all in one, whereas the BXRi are just listed as high performance. They were a week or so ago also listed under professional compacts. Makes you wonder why they have changed the wording, maybe someone from Elinchrom can throw some light on it?

http://www.elinchrom.c​om/ (external link) (click on professional compacts)

I have 3 D-Lites, 1 400BX, and 1 BX250Ri, and all in all I am happy with all of them. :D

Hello [godfather]....do you have any idea what the Ranger RX Speed AS system might be going for in India?

I will be in Mumbai in about 10 days. If there's a good deal to be had, might just be doing some shopping.

Thanks for the number [godfather] I will give it a try. Albeit I probably won't get past saying "namaste" but I'm sure can coax a little Hinglish. Thanks for your help.
