Elinchrom Quadra Action Head (A Head) (20151)
The Action head offers the fastest flash duration.
If you want to go with the ELB 400 portable battery flash, you’ll have to choose between 3 flash heads: the Pro, the Action and the HS head.
The Action head offers the fastest flash duration to freeze moving subjects with the normal flash sync shutter speed of your camera (1/200th a second) without the use of Hi-Sync technology. When shooting with a Hasselblad or shooting with a DSLR at the standard sync speed or below, you should use the Action heads.

The Action head offers the fastest flash duration of the three flash heads. At full power on an ELB 400, these heads offers a t0.5 flash duration of 1/2800th second. That fast flash duration can stop motion quite effectively when shooting at the standard flash sync of 1/200th second.
If you are shooting in low light and want to drag the shutter, i.e. use a slow shutter speed like 1/15th second, but also want to stop the motion of a moving subject, then the Action flash head is the one you want. Keep in mind that this head is not recommended for use with Hi-Sync
A situation where the Action head shines is when shooting with medium-format cameras, which can sync with flash at up to 1/1600th second with no games. For this to work well, a fast flash duration is required. In fact, a flash duration that is shorter than the shutter speed being used is required. So this means that you need a flash duration faster than 1/1600th sec., and this is where the Action head comes in handy. When shooting with a Hasselblad H5D, which can sync up to 1/800th second, the Action head is very useful.
If you are investing in this system, we would suggest getting the Quadra HS head and the Action head. This will offer the best of both worlds, depending on the the situation.
