Elinchrom’s Skyport Plus HS Radio Transmitters Now Support Sony

Editor’s note: an earlier version stated that these flash triggers did TTL. They do not.

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.

Specs are after the jump.
