The Expert D 1000 Kit from Hensel includes two Expert D 500 monolights, a 31.4 x 39.3" (80 x 100cm) Softbox Ultra E with honeycomb grid, a 7" reflector, two foldable aluminum stands, a large stand bag, a VII De Luxe bag, and a Strobe Wizard Plus radio transmitter.

Hensel Expert D 500 Monolight

The Hensel Expert D 500 Monolight has the flexibility, control and power photographers require for commercial, portrait, wedding or industrial work.

And the Expert has brains as well as brawn. Backing up an impressive 500W/s of power are convenience features that elevate it from being just another flash head to a professional lighting tool. But what good is power if you can't deliver it when it’s needed. The Expert D 500 recycles in a lightening 0.1 – 0.8 sec. And it does it at flash durations as short as 1/5800 sec., so that every fleeting gesture is frozen in a dance performance, for example. And what’s power without proportion? The Expert D 500 offers a 8 f/stop range, down to 1/32 power in 0.1 stop increments, which makes it perfect for photographers using digital cameras. Forget about that tangle of sync cords, too. The ultra-compatible Expert D 500 features Profoto Air radio, Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus and FREEMASK receivers. Just add an optional transmitter or transceiver from any of these systems for wireless triggering.

Finally, the Expert D 500 is a multi-voltage monolight, which makes it useable almost anywhere in the world that has electricity.

    Hensel Strobe Wizard Plus Radio Slave Remote Control Transmitter

    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.

    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.
