This Hensel Porty L 1200 Kit contains everything the location shooter needs for fashion, portrait, news or corporate work in the field with a portable power source. The kit includes the Porty L 1200 Battery Pack, battery, multi-voltage charger and an EH Pro Mini 1200-P Flash Head. A stand, umbrella reflector and wheeled carrying case round out the kit.
Porty L 1200 Power Pack: The evolution of Lithium battery technology has enabled production of the Hensel Porty L 1200 Power Pack. Digital processors ensure your power is really there before you fire. It provides power to your flash heads symmetrically or asymmetrically in 1/10 stop increments over a 7 stop range, displayed on its digital readout. Although you can go "old school" and fire the Porty via a 1/4" phono plug sync cord or its built-in optical slave, going wireless is a better way. The L1200 makes it easy with built-in Profoto Air, Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus and Freemask receivers and separate purchase of a transmitter.
EH Pro Mini 1200-P Flash Head: the Hensel EH Pro Mini 1200-P Flash Head is a very compact flash head designed to work with your Porty System power pack. The included detachable 16.4' (5 m) head cable may be replaced with an optional 22' (7 m) or 33' (10 m) cable.
