The Elinchrom ELB 400 Action To Go Kit contains ELB 400 Quadra Power Pack with Battery, Quadra Li-Ion Battery, Ranger Quadra Li-Ion Battery, Charger, PC to 3.5 mm Sync Cord (16 ft./5 m), Shoulder Strap for Quadra and ELB Power Pack, EL 11001 8 ft. Head Cable for Quadra, Protective Cap for Quadra Head, 7 In. (17.8 cm) Grid Reflector for Quadra Heads, Elinchrom Sync Cable 3.5mm to Amphenol - 15.75 In. (40 cm), EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus, ProTec Location Bag, Quadra Action Flash Head and Shoulder Strap. The kit is combined for both power and portability, the ELB 400 Quadra Pack is a rechargeable Li-ion battery that gives 424Ws of power and can recycle as fast as 1.6 seconds at full power. It works with the Quadra Pro Flash Head to give shorter flash durations of 1/3000 second to freeze action and operate smoothly with high-speed sync modes, when using the EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS. The ELB 400 features an integrated EL-Skyport receiver compatible with EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus for wireless remote triggering up to 656 ft. away. The remote transmitter triggers flash power for up to four groups in 16 different channels. The groups are split between eight normal channels and eight hi-speed channels and the locking metal accessory shoe connector allows installing the transmitter directly to a camera.

The ELB400 Quadra power pack with battery is specifically designed for photographers who like to travel light but packing enough power to overpower the sun. The best flash duration is at full power where you need it when you are out on a sunny location. The built-in EL-Skyport system enables seamless synchronization between your camera and the ELB 400. The OLED display features a rich and quick access to all features. In terms of speed, the ELB 400 boasts recycle times of 0.17-3.5 seconds and flash durations of 1/1200-1/2800 when at 100% power. The pack also features an OLED display for clearly viewing settings as well as a 3.5mm sync port for a conventional wired setup. The ELB 400 can even have the modeling light set up with programmable timers in addition to the on, off, and continuous modes. And, for those on the move, the pack only weighs 4.4 lb with the included battery.

The Pro flash head offers a slower flash duration compared to the Action head but it is faster compared to the HS head. At full power on an ELB 400, the Pro head offers at t0.5 a flash duration of 1/1200th second. For Still-Life and portraits or where the subject is not moving, this is a fast enough flash duration for sharp images. But if the subject is moving then this flash duration will not be fast enough to stop the motion of the subject at normal flash sync shutter speeds, i.e. at 1/250th second or below. The Pro head can be used in Hi-Sync mode with the latest EL-Skyport Plus HS transmitter, but there will be quite a bit more gradation in the image compared to the HS head, discussed below. Large sensors, with mechanical parts for the shutter and the mirror, as well as the camera firmware and the chosen shutter speed will affect the results. Mirrorless cameras can handle Hi-Sync very well. If you don't shoot action and only want to buy one flash head that can work with Hi-Sync to some degree and also create nice sharp portraits, then the Pro head is a good option. If you want to shoot mainly at higher shutter speeds, up to1/8000s, then you will want to get the EL-Skyport Plus HS transmitter along with the ELB 400 and the HS flash head. But, if you are investing in this system, they would suggest getting the Quadra HS, excellent for Hi-Sync and the Action head for fast flash duration. This will offer the best of both worlds, depending on the situation.
