Elinchrom 500BX ri question
I have these units, 2x 500's and 2x 250's.
the fan cuts in and out, it's on or off. You can hear them no doubt, but not loud enough to be distracting.
Having the skyport in them is great, saves a lot of messing about. It's handy being able to set the power from the camera but I was always adjusting the wrong light so I put stickers on them with the channel number, light 1,2 etc.
I also have the quadra, excellent bit of kit and it's really does make life easier when you have a common system.
