They're a hit around the world, but not in the U.S. Here's what we have been
Fly by wireless
Hensel is one of the few lighting companies to offer dedicated wireless firing. (The Pro Plus kits have the transmitter and receivers in the box.) Like all third-party wireless systems, this four-channel remote system fires multiple flashes wirelessly from the camera position.
Unlike the popular PocketWizard and Quantum Radio Slave remotes, Hensel's lets you adjust the flash output wirelessly-in 1/10-stops across a six-stop range. Even better, for multiflash setups, you can control the power of up to four units independently from the camera position.
Also, the Hensel receiver operates sans batteries, taking its power from the Integra. For basketball or hockey shooters, this means no more climbing into the rafters to change batteries.
While hardly as gee-whiz, other features include: illuminated control panels; flash tubes you can change yourself ($85 each); a glass dome that protects the bulbs; simple, spring-activated calipers that hold accessories in place; and a power-down system for the extremely bright 300-watt modeling lights, which automatically dims them (so they'll last longer and produce less heat) if they're idle longer than you'd like. Judging by these lights, Hensel deserves to be a bigger name on this side of the Atlantic.
