Continuous lighting[edit]

The continuous lighting uses tungsten bulbs with a colour temperature of around 3200° instead of daylight-balanced (5500°) flash tubes. All units accept the same range of light modifiers as the flash units, subject to the additional heat generated by the bulbs. The Scanlite range employ halogen bulbs.

Lighting modifiers[edit]

Elinchrom supply a range of lighting modifiers as accessories for their lights. Some accessories (such as umbrellas) attach to the light unit by means of a pole passing through a 7 mm hole through the head, and others (such as softboxes, reflector dishes and snoots) attach using Elinchrom's bayonet system.
