We are celebrating a birthay – 20 Years Porty!

20_Years_PortyIn 1995 Hensel introduced the Porty A, the very first professional battery flash generator. It quickly became the synonym for a whole equipment class and served as inspiration to many manufacturers. Full 1200 Ws power, portable, off-grid operation, and the option of attaching spots, ring flashes, and much more besides just heads made this a sensation!

Since then, we continually developed this little power pack, and today’s Portys offer much more than their predecessors: A significantly reduced weight, much faster recharge times, much shorter flash durations, and a lot more flashes per battery charge. Additionally, radio remote control, freemask, LED modelling light, asymmetric power distribution and capacity switching. Combined with an optional insertable mains adapter, Porty L converts into a full-blown studio pack with auto-proportional modelling light up to 2 x 650 W, thus making it a genuine hybrid system ideally suited for work in the studio and on location.

2015 is the Porty L the best Porty we ever had and it’s the most reasonably priced and handy professional battery flash generator in the top class. Its high power and fast recycling times, make it the perfect equipment for highly demanding jobs even in bright sunlight.

    Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
    Ich bin sehr an dem Porty Anniversary Kit interessiert.
    Fuer meine Arbeit pendel ich zwischen Koeln und NYC. Kann ich mir das Set auch in die USA schicken lassen oder haben Sie einen Haendler hier in New York, der das Set auch als Anniversary Kit verkauft.
    Vielen Dank im voraus,
    Martin Seck
