Good deal, if I hadn't picked up a RQ kit last week I'd be all over this. *Fingers crossed* that they offer extra heads at a similar discount soon

Dang, missed that one! Been very happily using a two pack, four head Quadra system since 2009. Decided to get up to date and add some redundancy, so just picked up the ELB400 HS kit last week for considerably more. Love the ELB400 changes and the light weight of the lithium battery, but $634 for a pack and head kit is killer. That's like 1/3 the ELB kit! Would seriously have considered getting one or two. Only qualm I have with the lead battery is capacity... wish the lithium battery was more wallet friendly.

Here's to hoping that deal, or similar, will resurface for Boxing Day.

It did, at the exact same price and I ordered a couple!

It's got me wondering what Elinchrom is up to with such low pricing... Just clearing out old stock for the ELB? Trying to compete a bit against the various sub $1000 battery strobes out there now from various Chinese brands?

Also wondering when they'll release their version of the B1 or Godox AD600...

While I'm a big Elinchrom guy, all-in-one gear like Profotos' B1, and some of the Chinese knock-offs have put a dent in the Quadra's sales. Also, I think that most of the people who buy the Quadra are typically outdoor shooters. So, most are buying it with the S (Pro) or HS head now. I don't think Elinchrom needs as many Quadra combinations now. I still prefer the light weight of the Quadra head to a big , heavy B1 though. And certainly other assets like their modifiers and reliability.

I agree I really like the size and weight of the Quadra head and ability to keep the pack low on the light stand or ground... But set up isn't as super simple as a self-contained battery powered monolight. The HS capability does add more value to the Quadra, as does the control over each pack from the HS transmitter. I wonder how many rule out the system simply for lack of TTL? For me at least, I would never use TTL in a 'locked down' lighting set up, but could see its usefulness for more run & gun location work, like during wedding shoots where you might only want to spend a few minutes in a given spot and move on to maximize the limited time typically available with the couple between ceremony & reception.

The option of the head types: A, S and HS is a factor that sold me on the Quadra (then it was only A & S) because I wanted something with very short flash duration at full power that wasn't so easy to find with monolights. As a result I bought the A head kits. Funny thing is I typically use the Quadra indoors and mostly for portrait sessions (I was seeing subject motion blur with dialed-down monolights) so the idea of the HS head was initially kind of lost on me. But after getting one and trying it with the HS transmitter, I agree it is quite useful for outdoor work.

This is the clearing out of old stock. The first clearance I saw two years ago was a significant discount on Elinchrom Quadra Hybrid kits when the ELB 400s were introduced. There was another clearance last year for the kits when the included case was switched from the Pelican-style case to the ProTec shoulder bag and the Skyport Plus transmitter was included instead.

One of these clearances was due to Elinchrom switching U.S. distribution from Manfrotto to MAC Group. They might have had another distributor in the interim.

I think I recall that time. If I remember correctly almost everything was nearly half-price. I missed out on it.

I'm awaiting the day that the ELB400 is on sale.
