p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Need help from anyone using Elinchrom Skyport Speed


For someone with the Skyport Speed transmittter, should the hotshoe on the transmitter be able to flex up and down or should it be rigid and unmoving where it attaches to the body of the transmitter? I picked up one off ebay to use with my D-Lites and I am suffering from limited range and irratic behavior. The test button triggers the strobes consistantly but the camera is only 50-75% reliable. The behavior is worse in the speed mode and range is very limited.
I am thinking that the unit should not be feeling like it is spring loaded on a pivot where it attaches to the camera.

Thanks for your help!

Assuming the transmitter hasn't been damaged, it should slide all the way in and lock down tight in the hot shoe with the locking wheel. If not then their may be something mechanically wrong with it. Also, be sure the batter is good. Any wireless consistent transmitter use would be affected by low battery power.

What camera body is it? If it's a D700 it could be the hot shoe.

Thanks, it is the shoe on the Skyport transmitter. If I loosen the locking ring, the hot shoe mount moves back and forth with about 3mm of travel.
