Elinchrom has redesigned the separately purchased Action, Hi-Sync, and Pro flash heads with use with the ELB 1200 in mind. The Hi-Sync head is optimized for HS shooting up to 1/8000 second while the Pro head will give you 1/5050 second flash duration at 140Ws. True to its name, the Action head will give you the fastest flash duration of 1/8850, when set to 172Ws. Each fan-cooled head is outfitted with a bright LED modeling light that draws minimal power from the pack. The ELB 1200 has settings on its OLED display for On, Free (selectable level), Timer (1-60 seconds), Proportional (to power level), and Dimming (from 5 to 100%.
Triggering options include the included 3.5mm sync cord, but the EL 1200 has a built-in EL Skyport receiver that will allow you to wirelessly fire the unit at distances up to 656' with the addition of an EL Skyport transmitter.
The EL 1200 runs on the included lithium-ion battery Air battery that gives you 215 full-power flashes and 80 minutes of run time for the LED modeling light. An optional, more powerful HD battery provides 400 full-power flashes and 120 minutes of run time.
