John Harrington-WHAT WE USE - Hensel Porty Ringlight

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Here's a video segment on the Hensel Porty ringlight 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.

This is our secondary porty kit. In it, we have the porty ringlight.  The pack has two batteries stored over on this side.  The pack is in the middle and the ringlight here on the other side with the cords for it.  It’s important that you keep this ringlight very protected because the bulb can break and the pack becomes near worthless. 

The pack here is right here in the middle.  Again, one of the really great things about the Hensel porties is that they are adjustable tenth of a stop increments digitally. We can plug up to two porty heads in here if we need to. We have a modeling light, audible signaling that the pack has recycled.  We can recharge straight from the pack or in an off board charger. 

The pack has a slaving capability so that one pack can be triggered by a handheld flash, power switch.  It also has an indicator to let us know how much battery power we have left as we’re shooting along so that we know when we need to switch a battery out.
Also, in this porty kit is are sync cord hardwired, so if we had to go hardwired we could.  We would actually prefer to direct connect from the ringlight, on the back of the ringlight straight to the camera. 

So that’s the Porty ringlight kit, it’s also labeled Pack 2 so if we know that a pack goes down, we can immediately go and switch it out to Pack 3, or Pack 1 or whatever pack we’re using.  And it packs all up nice and neat.  And off we go.

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