Hensel 3955 overview

  • 1Description

This Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus FREEMASK Transmitter, when used with a Hensel flash head incorporating FREEMASK, wirelessly triggers the head and automatically varies the flash output in sequential exposures to create a cut-out mask. Additionally, this transmitter can be used like the standard Strobe Wizard Plus transmitter to wirelessly trigger Integra or Expert series flash heads with built-in receivers. Flash power and switching the modeling lamp between FULL/OFF/PROP (proportional) can also be accomplished.

    Hensel 3955 reviews

    Strobe Wizard Plus FREEMASK Transmitter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it but... I see others have some negative reviews about the strobmaster wizard transmitter which is the sibling to the Freemask transmitter so here is my two cents. I own two Profoto transmitter/recievers (one AirSync and one AirRemote)which are better than the Hensel product in the following ways: more robustly built with antenna in interior vs antenna in exterior (small metal loop antenna on the bottom of Hensel), Profoto good for 300 meters vs 40 meters, Profoto can sync at maximum 320/sec vs 250/sec for DSLR, can be transmitter or reciever, two Profoto units can be set up as a wireless camera shutter release with one as a transmitter and the other as a reciever, Profoto can increase/decrease power levels in 1/10th AND 1-stop increments vs just 1/10th increments for Hensel, Profoto have 8 channels and 6 groups vs 3 channels and 1 group for Hensel, Profoto use 2 AAA batteries(12 hours @320/sec & 140 hours @250/sec) which are easy to access vs odd ball lithium battery where a screwdriver is required for replacement, Profoto has audio feedback when pressing buttons and Hensel does not, Profoto is tight fitting on my Nikon D3s hotshoe and tightening of the lock collar isn't even necessary because it would never fall off but Hensel product slides on and off with very little effort so you must lock the collar tight to keep it from coming off if you're at an outdoor shoot and the camera is being moved around a lot. I purchased the Freemask transmitter because I'm using it for freemasking the Hensel method so I had no other choice. I'm really careful with my gear so I don't think I'll be having any problems with the Hensel Freemask transmitter. The two things I really like about the Freemask transmitter is there is no on/off switch(it's always in standby and the battery is supposed to last 1-2 years!) and it's a very small unit. I'm happy:-)
