Elinchrom announce new portable off-camera flash

Elinchrom ONE - portable off-camera flash

Elinchrom, exclusively distributed by LUMESCA Group in the UK, introduces the supremely portable, rugged, and dependable Elinchrom ONE. Their first battery-powered monolight is born from a company-wide effort to step out of their collective comfort zone and define Elinchrom’s modern identity. The entire team has gone to great lengths to ensure the ONE features several unique, future-facing attributes while still retaining the brand’s core values.

The ONE is so lightweight and portable that it was really easy for my assistant to move freely and precisely.said professional portrait photographer Brenda Bazán.

For Elinchrom, the ONE is more than just a long-requested new product; it is the beginning of their next adventure.

Keep a low profile
Add the versatility of an off-camera flash with light shaping capabilities to any kit while maintaining a minimal footprint with the Elinchrom ONE. Similar in size and weight (1.5kg / 3.3 lbs) to a 70-200mm lens, the ONE is ready to travel with you anywhere and everywhere.

Brave the elements
The Elinchrom ONE utilises an internal Li-ion battery for maximum portability and enhanced protection from the elements while on location. Plus, you are not tied to proprietary spare batteries or chargers with the ability to charge from any USB-C source.

Never lose momentum
Capable of producing 725 full-power flashes on a single charge, the Elinchrom ONE is ready for longer shoots. Additionally, with Active Charging, the ONE can be connected to a power source and continue shooting while charging regardless of the battery’s power level, keeping your workflow uninterrupted.

Shape your story
Shaping light is at the heart of every great photo you create. Designed around an unconcealed flash tube for optimal light spread, the Elinchrom ONE ensures you experience the beautiful light quality Elinchrom is known for.

Your choice of light shapers
Engineered to use the newly developed Elinchrom OCF modifier mount, the Elinchrom ONE is also natively compatible with most Profoto® OCF light shapers, greatly expanding your selection of available light shaping tools. The included Elinchrom OCF to Bayonet Adapter enables quick mounting to speedrings and reflectors using the traditional Elinchrom Bayonet.

Do more with less
Engineered for peak efficiency, the Elinchrom ONE utilises its 131W of capacity to generate a light output usually seen in 200+ Ws units. At 1 meter (3.3ft) and 100 ISO, the ONE can achieve F-11.9, with the Diffusion Dome attached, and when combined with the HP Reflector, the achievable F-Stop climbs to F-45.2.

Navigate swiftly
With a touchscreen interface and a newly designed menu structure, Elinchrom has streamlined the process of adjusting the ONE’s settings to ensure you never miss a chance to capture a moment.
