Hensel has put together this Certo 400 Basic 2-Light Kit for photographers who are looking for a dollar-friendly setup with solid core features that's ready for shooting on the road. The kit includes two Certo 400 monolights, each with a 32" umbrella, an umbrella reflector, and a light stand.

Hensel Certo 400 Monolight

The Hensel Certo 400 Monolight is a light source with solid, dependable core features. The head offers a 7-stop power range, from 7 to 400Ws with very fast recycle times of 0.5 - 1.1 seconds with flash durations as short as 1/2500 second for effective action stopping. The head also features a built-in, 16-channel radio receiver, compatible with Hensel's optional Cactus transceivers with triggering capability at distances up to 328'. The Certo 400 comes with a power cable, transport cap, and a stand adapter with built-in umbrella holder.

Hensel Umbrella Flood Reflector for Hensel Flash Heads

This reflector is designed specifically for use with an umbrella, while mounted to a Hensel flash head. It provides the proper beam spread for optimum, even distribution of the light into the umbrella.

Hensel Economy Umbrella - White with Black Backing - 32"

The Hensel 32" Economy Umbrella has a white interior, and black backing. It softens and broadens the light from any strobe source. The black backing prevents stray light from passing through the umbrella.

Hensel Cactus Flash Transceiver V5

Operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency, the Cactus Flash Transceiver V5 from Hensel can function as a transmitter or receiver, on-camera or off-camera, with speedlights via its hot shoe, or connected to strobes via its 3.5mm port. Measuring only 3.2 x 2.7 x 1.4" and weighing just two ounces, (without two separately purchased AAA batteries) the low-profile Cactus Transceiver has 16 discrete channels, employs four different groups for multiple setup control, and can trigger flash heads from distances up to 328'. Convenience features include FST (Frequency Self-Tune) technology that automatically "tunes" the transceiver to its last working frequency when exposed to extreme weather conditions, as well as a low battery indicator.
