Sekonic L-478DR-EL Lite Master Pro

For Elinchrom EL-Skyport

The compact LiteMaster Pro L478 features an array of unique, must-have features for both still and filmmakers. It’s the world's first touch-screen-operated light meter. Change settings by simply touching or sliding a finger over the screen. Its large LCD (2.7") displays ambient, flash, cine and a host of other information in a clear and understandable way.

Exclusive Elinchrom Skyport technology transmits at 2.4GHz and uses signal protocols that are unique to Elinchrom’s Skyport wireless triggering/control system. Which is really a big advantage for photographers and filmmakers, since the major ability of the Elinchrom system enables complete control of the flash's power in 0.1-step increments. Plus, the 20-channel system has separate selection between 4 groups with measured values maintained for ratio determination. You’ll also be able to control the modelling lamp as well as set all groups at the same time.
