This blog will show the comprehensive Elinchrom Ranger Quadra kit in the x200.


This kit I find provides the basis for much of my location work. It may added to as necessary, but in this form it's packed and ready to go. The cameras and lenses are in a Lowepro Magnum 400 AW.

What's in the bag?
  1. 2 x Quadra A Heads with Wilson caps from The Flash Centre.

Outside the bag I may strap a California Sunbounce Micro Mini gold zebra/white and even a carbon fibre tripod.

That is a lot of kit in a relatively small bag! Lightweight lighting on the move.

Elinchrom flash is available from The Flash Centre. Email Simon Burfoot or call Brian Collier at the Birmingham branch.

The 1420 VAL Spigot is available from selected retailers in the UK and direct from me for US or UK customers.

If you're serious about your photographic lighting then maybe The LIGHT Side Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/thelightsidegroup/ will interest you. It's about all things to do with light and lighting. TLS is a closed group so someone will need to add you or you'll need to send a request to be added. It's a friendly group, with a degree of humour and some great photographers willing to share and contribute.
