Hensel 3950 overview

  • 1Description

The Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus Radio Slave System combines radio triggering, model light activation, and flash power control into one single compact device (with Hensel strobes that support these features).

The availability of 3 channels prevents interference between different work groups within the same studio. On channel #4 (master channel) all devices can be controlled simultaneously, regardless of the channel they are set to. In addition, this improved Plus version has a maximum sync speed of 1/250th.

The transmitter is small, light and easily mounts into a hot shoe. In addition, it also comes supplied with a short sync cord (sub-mini connection) for PC sync connection.

Note: The Plus version can only be operated with an external Strobe Wizard Plus receiver (#3951), or with internal receivers build into Integra Plus monolights having a flash arrow printed on the dialer for flash setting. Also works with the built-in receiver of the Porty Premium Plus (#4954), not with the Porty Premium AS/RC (#4953).

This system supports the possibility of remotely adjusting flash power and activating the modeling light via the Up/Down buttons on heads equipped with built-in receivers.
A maximum sync speed of 1/250th second allows for shorter flash durations.
Protected by a solid plastic housing.
A low sync voltage makes it ideally suited for digital cameras.
Receiver has 1/4" (6.3mm) phone plug.

    Hensel 3950 reviews

    Strobe Wizard Plus Remote Control Transmitter is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from flimsy and feels cheap yes, it is flimsy, feels cheap, very inconvenient to use and is not functional enough especially in comparison with, for example, a Bowens remote control. moreover, mine broke down within a couple of weeks after i've got it (i live abroad and for me this is a major headache to change it with B&H, so i didn't even let them know about it). so, according to my experience, i can't believe this small plastic thing was made in germany (i have no questions about Hensel heads, they are just great). the bottom line is, if a remote control is an important feature for you, which is really convenient, the Hensel system is not the best choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, solid, reliable! This works perfectly to adjust and fire my Hensel Plus monolight. In a recent shoot with the light at the top of a 10-foot lightstand, this was indispensible for adjusting light output without having to reach the monolight.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unit works but quality is low. I was surprised when I opened the unit to see if it had a battery. The electronics is fully exposed and could be damaged if not extremely carful. This is not the quality I expected from the German manufacturer. I would think about buying the units without the receiver and then buying other market products to trigger the flash.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly made, breaks far too easily, very disappointing. I use this in conjunction with two Hensel 500W Monolights. Don't get me wrong, it works, that is, when it decides it will stay in your hot shoe. It serves to trigger the flashes as well as control the power output should you desire, which is nice.But, even if this were a $ product, and not nearly 4x that amount, it is ridiculously cheap and poor quality. I have never paid so much for an item made so poorly, ever. This is borderline a scam, I have already gone through 2 of these, about to order my 3rd, by this point I could have bought another blasted light!Problems include: hotshoe lock thread failure, as in, the lock gets close to tight, then jumps back up the threads. It may do this without warning. Then it will fall off of your camera, and promptly break, because there is NO durability. The hotshoe mount itself is cheap, incredibly weak plastic that broke itself when I tried to tighten it down properly. Note, I'm not at all forcing anything here, I am very kind to my gear. The contacts themselves are exposed, and actively work against the lock (pushing up and out, which probably leads to some failures). TL;DR, it's one of the worst photo-related products I've ever used, incredibly disappointed in Hensel, it's too bad this is required to trigger the lights, I can't wait to get a real set of strobes from Profoto who use reliable triggers suitable for a professional environment.
