John Harrington-WHAT WE USE - Hensel Porty Kit

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Here's a video segment on the Hensel Porty kit that we use. a transcription of the video is available after the jump.

Hands on instructional video on photography from Assignment Construct.

Hi, I’m John Harrington and we’re going to break out and break down the wide variety of equipment we use to deliver images to our clients. Next we are going to show you one of the equipment kits we use when we are traveling on assignment. Each kit is different and has a very specific purpose. So lets take a look.

Our next case is one of the 3 Hensel Porty Kits we use. We keep them each in a Versa Flex case, which holds them and their accessories quite nicely.

We like the Porty’s because they are 1200 Ws of power, adjustable in tenth of a stop increment digitally here on the pack. As you can see here it’s all digitally controlled, really like that capability.

We can hardwire into the Porty at this connection point if we need to, but as you can see I think its still the factory rubber band around this particular connector. Instead what we prefer to use is going direct into the back of the Porty head using a pocket wizard and a standard 1/4-inch headphone kit.

Its really nice to be able to use the pocket wizards with these kits, it makes all the difference in the world to be able to move freely and be able to go where you want to go and not be hardwired and connected.

Using a pocket wizard is just that much better then hardwire because I’m not risking pulling a head over when I’ve got the hardwire connection into the head or into the pack. So that’s the Porty.

Below the video is a link to each of the segments, Let me know what you think!
