The Hensel Speed Max Monolight certainly lives up to its name. The 400W/s head turns in a lightning-fast 1/66,600 sec. flash duration, perfect for action-freezing shots like splashes, water droplets, dance or scientific studies. And with recycling times as quick as 0.8 seconds, you won't you won't be standing around waiting to power up. Hensel hasn't sacrificed features for speed either. A radio receiver is built in, so you won't be tethered to a tangle of PC cords; and the digital power control provides 1/10 stop increments over a 7 stop range. The powerful 300W modeling lamp can be set for on, off, proportional or flash check (FC) which dims and brightens again when fully recycled. Finally, you won't have to worry about power if you have to take your Speed Max on the road; it's 110 - 230V AC multi-voltage.
