Elinchrom have expanded into LED lighting with the release of the ELM8 continuous LED light, a fully cordless, compact, powerful, and rugged light, purpose designed for both photography and video use.
The compact ELM8 outputs 8000 Lumens, weighs just 1.2kgs, and will run from 50 to 245 minutes on one charge of the built-in Lithium-ion battery.
Elinchrom have collaborated with high quality LED light manufacturers Light & Motion to offer the ELM8, which conveniently features built-in Skyport radio, and provides an Elinchrom Q-mount (Quadra) modifier mount.
So photographers can use all of their existing Elinchrom modifiers with the ELM8, as well as a range of dedicated modifiers.
For USA based customers this light is available as the Light & Motion CLx8.
The ELM8 LED light is daylight balanced 5600K, with a CRI of 93, and TLCI of 94.
Light output is 8000 Lumens, which provides 16320 Lux at 1m (measured using the narrow beam 25 degree Fresnel attachment).
The fan cooled ELM8 is also built rugged and with an IPF54 weatherproof rating, and shockproof to withstand a drop from up to 1 meter.
The ELM8 can run from 50 to 245 minutes, and recharge in 2 hours. The battery is unfortunately not removable. The light can also run off AC power if needed though.
