More details about trade-in process
Q: What Elinchrom products are eligible for trade in?
A: Any Free Style, Ranger RX, Ranger RX Speed or Ranger RX Speed AS with a minimum of one Ranger A or Ranger S flash head. Sorry, Quadra and ELB 400 products are not part of this program.
Q: My Ranger has gone through a lot over the years, what condition does the gear have to be in?
A: Don’t worry. The units don’t have to be functional, but they do need to be complete ie: battery, pack, charger and a minimum of one head.
Q: Is there a limit to the number of Rangers I can trade in?
A: No. However, this is a one for one trade-in program. In other words, you cannot receive credit for multiple Ranger units on one ELB 1200 purchase.
Q: Can the trade in be done at my local camera store if I don’t want to deal with shipping?
A: Yes! Photographers ready to upgrade are encouraged to bring their qualifying Ranger equipment to any authorized dealer to receive $1000 off their ELB 1200 purchase instantly. Visit www.elinchromus.com/where-to-buy/dealers to find a local dealer.
Q: I’m a student, can I participate if I purchased my ELB 1200 at an EDU discount?
A: Yes you can! For more information on special pricing for students and educators please head to www.photovideoedu.com
Q :When does the trade in program end?
A: The trade in offer is valid on purchases made until December 31, 2017. All traded in units must be received in our warehouse before January 31, 2018 for credit.
“...The new ELB 1200 is hands-down the most advanced 1,200 Ws battery-powered strobe kit on the market. They are ultra-dependable, insanely durable, super easy to use and the Hi-Sync functionality is unsurpassed by any other strobe on the market. In short, the ELB 1200 blows the doors off my old Rangers.”
