EL- Skyport or Pocketwizard Power ST4
Apr 5, 2012


I just updated my travel kit to include three Elinchrom 600 r/x strobes. I also received the El-Skyport system along with the lights.

I've been using Pocketwizards for years to fire my strobes and speed lights manually, so I was excited to use the EL-Skyport system to control the flash output from my camera. Then I found out that Pocketwizard makes the Power ST4 which apparently works with Elinchrom R/X lights and would work with my existing Flex TT5.

Since these are going to be my travel lights and I'm trying to lighten my load, I'll occasionally incorporate both my Elinchrome and Nikon speed lights in the same photo. I'm wondering if I should stay with the EL-Skyport system and buy the Skyport Universal Receivers for my Nikon lights, or just go with the Pocketwizard ST4's and my existing Flex TT5.

Any thoughts or comments? Any experiences with either system?

Thank you in advance!
