    Color Shift shooting film with strobes

    I've been shooting film with Elinchrom strobes (ELB 400), and I notice color shifts every few frames or so. Mostly used at the same output and camera settings with plenty of time for recycle, but still notice the shifts.

    Have you used the same set up but with a DSLR? Thats where i would start. Is this roll film or sheet film? Discrepancy in processing possibly?

    I think the color shift might be Elinchrom's HS head. At 1/600th, it was perfect when I shot Hi-Sync with a Sony A7rII. I'd normally get flash sync at 1/2000th wide open(f/1.8) and 1/8000th stopped down. However, the Action head might be more suitable now that I primarily shoot film.
