About Hensel

Hensel Expert D 500 multivoltage, high-performance switch-mode power supply allows unproblematic world-wide use (110V - 240V). The first radio remote control world-wide which combines three radio systems in one provides flexibility of operation. Included as standard are: Hensel Strobe Wizard (3+All), FREEMASK and the Profoto Air System! This unit allows you to operate it together with various units from other manufacturers due to the Profoto Air System. At the same time, all remote controlled units are fully retained.

Amazing quality


from Fairfield, Iowa  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is the 3rd Hensel light I purchased as I set up a new studio. I ordered Hensel and Paul C Buff (Einstein)both to see which I would keep. I returned the Einsteins. My first project was fine art pieces, the Einstein had a yellow cast I could not get rid of, the Hensel was flawless. 10 stop increments are a useful range, and the versatility in triggers is useful, I had the profoto already and it allows more control of the lights. I was concerned about the higher cost, but decided that it was great value for a long term investment that you need to rely on providing consistent high quality results.
