Elinchrom Introduces ELM8 Continuous LED Light

Elinchrom has launched its new ELM8, a continuous LED light that it claims is the “most portable, powerful and progressive modular system” of its kind. 

Elinchrom ELM8 was made in partnership with LED light manufacturer, Light & Motion, and is integrated with Elinchrom's existing lighting system.

The ELM8 is battery-powered and compact, measuring 20.5 x 9.6 x 9.6-inches and weighing 2.6 pounds. When fully charged, Elinchrom says the light can run for between 50 minutes and about four hours before needing a recharge. Recharging takes two hours.
