NEW: Compact & fast – Expert D 250 SPEED

Up to now the usability of monolights for people and fashion photography was seriously limited: Slow recycling times and long flash durations didn’t allow dynamic shootings. The Expert D 500 and Expert D 1000 Hensel introduced 4 years ago, are among the first compact flashes with a performance that got accepted by many fashion photographers.

And now, at photokina 2014, we introduce a new member of the Expert D family: The Expert D 250 SPEED. This compact flash is designed for ultimate speed and highest stability, made for demanding people and fashion photographers.
