Today, Elinchrom now joins the short list of manufacturers delivering
TTL radio flash triggers for Sony. The company announced that their new Skyport + HS transmitters will offer full support with the Sony system along with TTL and Hi-Sync (their version of high speed sync). You’ll be able to get these transmitters for $249; which aren’t as affordable as what Godox can do, but the Godox also don’t integrate into a full monolight system.
