The Hensel Expert D 500 Monolight has the flexibility, control and power photographers require for commercial, portrait, wedding or industrial work.

And the Expert has brains as well as brawn. Backing up an impressive 500W/s of power are convenience features that elevate it from being just another flash head to a professional lighting tool. But what good is power if you can't deliver it when it’s needed. The Expert D 500 recycles in a lightening 0.1 – 0.8 sec. And it does it at flash durations as short as 1/5800 sec., so that every fleeting gesture is frozen in a dance performance, for example. And what’s power without proportion? The Expert D 500 offers a 8 f/stop range, down to 1/32 power in 0.1 stop increments, which makes it perfect for photographers using digital cameras. Forget about that tangle of sync cords, too. The ultra-compatible Expert D 500 features Profoto Air radio, Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus and FREEMASK receivers. Just add an optional transmitter or transceiver from any of these systems for wireless triggering.

Finally, the Expert D 500 is a multi-voltage monolight, which makes it useable almost anywhere in the world that has electricity.
