NEW: Hensel Certo Compact Flashes

Posted on October 15 2018

PRESS RELEASE

Safe, Reliable & Reasonably Priced

Hensel is introducing the Certo 200 and Certo 400, two new compact flash units especially tailored to ambitious amateurs, semiprofessional users, and new professionals starting out. Thanks to their exemplary performance and quality, they also attack budget - conscious pros.

The advantages of Certo flash units

The small and light Certo flashes offer short flash duration times of up to 1/3,400s, fast flash recycling of 0.4-1.1s and a power range covering 6 or 7 f-stops in 1/10 steps. Thanks to their direct access to all major functions, using them is almost self-explanatory. The 16-channel integrated radio sync permits wirelessly firing. Hensel’s EH quick-change mount system offers the quickest and easiest way in the industry to attach and remove light modifiers. Certo uses a flash tube with integrated protective safety glass dome. This protects users and the flash tube from potential harm and makes swapping flash tubes a breeze.

Active cooling ensures safe, continuous operation and lets you use the bright 150W halogen lamp (GX 6.35) as modeling light. The performance display can be switched from relative f-stops to watt seconds.

Hensel’s well-designed Certo compact flash units offer a cost-effective entry into one of the industry’s most versatile lighting systems. A wide selection of light formers expand the user’s creative possibilities, further allowing the system to grow with the user’s needs. Like all other Hensel strobes, you can count on long-term safety, reliability and serviceability, something only a well-known brand can offer.
