Accessories specialist hähnel has a variety of products to help you get the most out of your kit, and in turn the most out of your creativity. Here's an early look at some of the equipment that hähnel will have on display at The Photography Show later this year.
Its award-winning speedlights, the hähnel Modus 600RT and Modus 360RT, offer an optimum on- or off-camera option for users of Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic or Fujifilm systems.
Both models use lithium-ion batteries for more shots per charge, with the 600RT delivering 600 full-power shots and the 360RT delivering 400 – and they’re four times faster than any AA-powered speedlight. Boasting wireless connectivity, any number of Modus lights can be controlled in up to three groups – and the power and TTL can be controlled either by the master speedlight or hähnel’s Viper controller.
Whether you’re using the Modus, or many other speedlights on the market, the magnetic hähnel Module system enables you to attach a series of accessories to your flashguns. First, the Module 600 Clamp and Module 360 Clamp fit to your flashguns; from there you can magnetically mount the Module Softbox, to diffuse and soften your light, or the Module Light Effects Kit, which comprises six colour filters, a honeycomb grid and a bounce card.
The hähnel Captur system combines two products in one: a wireless remote shutter release and remote flash trigger. The 2.4Ghz transmission delivers a range of 100 metres – and means that the trigger and shutter release don’t have to be in line of sight.
The Captur system can be built upon as you expand the scope of your photography, whether it’s adding the Module – Timer for timelapse photography, or the Module – Pro with sensors that can trigger based on light, sound, laser or infrared. Captur is ready to go, right out of the box, and its digital Channel Matching technology (which promises zero interference) is ideal for use in a group situation.
The hähnel ProCube 2 is an award-winning professional twin charging kit for camera batteries. Like the Modus and Captur systems, ProCube 2 is compatible with a range of Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and Fujifilm DSLRs and mirrorless cameras.
It charges 1,000mAh in 1 hour from mains or 12v DC, and can charge 2 batteries simultaneously. The ProCube 2 can also charge 4 AA rechargeable batteries, with the supplied charging plate, and has an integrated 2.4A USB charger. It comes with a UK and European mains power supply, along with a 12v car lead.
