Options for Hypersync with canon 5D II & Elinchrom or Einstein
Oct 15, 2012

Please note, not interested in HSS, just interested in hypersync which is when the receiver triggers the transmitter slightly early, not to be confused with HSS which pulses the flash at low power in order to achieve higher sync speeds.

Also, willing to give up on remote power setting.

At any rate, my elinchrom/skyport will not sync faster than 1/125 and so for the first phase of my upgrade I want to replace the skyport with a PW or some other device that can achieve sync speeds of at least 1/320 if this is even possible on the 5D II.

My second phase of upgrade is to replace the elinchrom with einsteins so whatever remote system I choose needs to work with both systems.

Any advice would be appreciated. Please, no editorial comments on the merits of Buff vs Elinchrom.

Thanks in advance.
