Hensel 500 overview

  • 1Description

The Hensel Integra 500 3 Light Kit with Stands is built around a 500Ws monolight that provides the control, power and the quality features that photographers, no matter what their field, desire.

Start with its flexible power setting allowing precise output selection from its 500Ws capacity over 6 f/stops in 1/10 stop increments. Settings are visible on an easy-to-read LED screen. The powerful 300W modeling light is strong enough for the multi-tasking image maker to shoot video and for strobe work it can be set to proportional to preview the effect of the flash. Besides fan-cooling, which lengthens the life of the flash tube and modeling lamp, as well as the unit's circuitry, an electronic system continuously monitors the unit's operation, ensuring that after a user-adjustable interval (5-90 min), the modeling light power is reduced to a preset value. As soon as the unit is reactivated, the previous value is restored.

The Integra 500 boasts short flash durations of 1/500 sec. (t0.1) and a very short recycling time of only 2.2 seconds at full power. The durable, extruded aluminum cylindrical body features a built-in ergonomic handle and improved quick-action reflector mount. The stand mount, fixed on previous models, now slides along the body so that the correct fulcrum point can be found to counterbalance front-heavy accessories like large softboxes. Other features include visual and audible recycling alerts, a user replaceable flash tube and a protective dome.

The kit comes with 3 Integra 500 monolights, a 7" reflector, 2 umbrellas, 2 umbrella reflectors, 3 Alu III light stands, a sync cord, and a wheeled kit case.

Six Stop Range
Adjustable in 0.1 stop clicks, on the illuminated front panel, from full to 1/32 power output
Optical Slave
Built-in optical slave allows wireless firing without a sync cord
300W Modeling Light
The smart 300W modeling light goes far beyond conventional full and proportional power operation. An electronic system continuously monitors the unit's operation, ensuring that after user-adjustable time (5 - 90 min.), the modeling light power is reduced to a preset value. As soon as the unit is reactivated, the previous value is restored.
User Replaceable Flash Tube
Economical and easy to replace flash tube minimizes downtime
Fan cooling lengthens the life of the flash tube, modeling light and the flash head's electronics

    Hensel 500 reviews

    Integra 500 3 Light Kit with Stands is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used for Portable Portrait Studio I bought this light kit 2 years ago for a Portable Portrait Studio. The lights were easy to set up. I have used them in both indoor and outdoor settings. The portable kit rolls easily between the van and the indoor location. I used a Nikon D7100 with a 50mm f/1.4 prime Nikkor lens. I use the Vello FreeWave wireless controllers. I use a 12' paper back-drop in a 12'W x 10'D x 8'H outline with groups sizes from 1 to 10 people. Typical settings are ISO 100, f/8, 1/200 sec. Pros: This is my first monolight kit and after two test setups, I was able to photograph 135 groups in 6 hours. No issues with the lights. Cons: One of the glass globes arrived broken. B&H shipped a replacement right-away. The light modifiers were OK, but I have quickly migrated to more effective modifier attachments. NOTES: - I had to go to the local hardware store to get wire management accessories that I am happy with. - I would not trust the kit bag in a commercial transportation system (i.e. airplanes).
