Disappointed

One of the lights arrived with a broken clutch-handle right out of the box. I was referred to Manfrotto (who handles US distribution for Elinchrom) for warranty service, but they neither answered the phone nor returned my call after I left a message. It's disappointing to discover that Elinchrom doesn't stand behind their products. The good news is that Adorama gave me no grief about a return. Easy process. A+ for Adorama, F for Elinchrom & Mafrotto Distribution.

Good strobes, bad luck

By

from St. Louis, MO and San José, Costa Rica  -  Pro Photographer

I have mostly used these (older version) at the studio I work at. They have never given me any issues in the +1 year I've had access to them. They're reliable, but they overheated a few times (takes a few seconds to cycle). I guess they did this because it was in summer and we hadn't installed the AC yet. With the older version, no problems whatsoever. These are a newer version made in India. So far, so good...except I had the bad luck of having one of the strobes locking mechanism break on me while I was using the Portalite softbox. Straight out of the box, took the protective cap off, attached the Portalite, shot a test and the mechanism wouldn't release the speed ring. Seemed like the problem was inside the strobe's lock mechanism. I really like these, just a bit bummed out that one of them failed on me straight out of the box and the exchange with the store has been a bit challenging. With more usage time, I could go deeper into the comparison of the older and the newer versions of the strobe.

Good product, bad experience

By

from Lititz, PA  -  Photography Student

The lights, stands and carry bags are all very good, high quality and tough. The included soft boxes are nice, but the material is a bit flimsy. The product itself is great. Adorama, however, gets a zero star from me. I had to spend 2 hours over numerous calls because I was sent a set that had been returned. There were multiple pieces missing, one of the lights was broken, etc. It was a major hassle to get the return label and refund.

Easy to use

By

from New Hampshire  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is my first lighting kit and am very satisfied with the ease of set up and use. The sky port makes it even easier and more flexible. I'll be adding some more modifiers to make it both a studio and location kit.

Incredible Value

By

from Ft. Worth, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Light too hot? Click the button on the Skyport to bring it down a stop. Need more light at f/22? Click the button on the Skyport and you're set. Need one light at full power and the other one at 1/2? Skyport allows you to have different channels. I so love these lights!

Professional Equipment = Pro Results

By

from Wasilla, AK  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is an excellent product for studio lighting indoor or outdoor. For photographer's who's shooting style requires maximum portability, get the Ranger RX or the Ranger Quadra kit/s. For computer control of strobes, get the Style RX 300, 600, or 1200 Elinchrom strobes. Elinchrom, its what Pro's use. Product rating 10/10

Questions about this item:

Robert H  Regarding the BXRi 500 Ws Monolights, my assumption is that these units plug directly into the wall without the need for a power pack. Am I correct?
BRIAN S  yes these are awesome lights no regrets on buying them
Shopper  NECESITO SABER EL PESO TOTAL DEL KIT?, GRACIAS.
NICHOLAS P  Cada luminario pesa 2kg (4.5lbs). Los "stands" y "soft boxes" pesan 2kg en total. Hay dos bolsas para llevar todo el kit. Bien compacto.
Mauricio U  For on location do this kit require some battery pack for power it up??? For indoors can I plug in to the electricity or require the battery pack too?? If yes what is the better battery pack for this? Thanks
Helen O  The Elinchrome BXRi monolights do require connection to an external power source (in the USA that would be a 115v/60hz outlet). For a more portable Elinchrome solution, with a rechargeable battery pack, one possible solution would be; http://www.adorama.com/EL10280.html
