You’ll be seeing double as the Hahnel Modus takes multi-flashgun versatility to the max
Flashguns like the Canon 600EX II-RT enable multi-flashgun setups with advanced RF control and communication. The downside is that buying a pair of Canon’s top-end flashguns will set you back over a grand. This kit from Hahnel gives you similar benefits at a lower cost (in the UK).
At the core of this kit is Hahnel’s revolutionary Modus 600RT, available in dedicated versions for Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras. Unlike most flashguns, it runs on a rechargeable Li-ion battery pack, instead of the more usual set of four AA batteries.
Benefits include a super-fast recycling speed of 1.5 seconds after a full-power flash, and as many as 600 or 1,000 flashes on a single charge, at full or half-power settings respectively.
The ‘Wireless’ kit combines the 600RT flashgun with a Viper TTL Transmitter, adding full RF communication for off-camera flash, at a distance of up to 100m. TTL, manual, high-speed sync, rear-curtain and multi (programmable repeat) flash for up to three groups of flashguns can be controlled from the Viper Transmitter, which sits in the camera’s hotshoe and comes complete with its own control panel and LCD screen.
The range-topping ‘Pro’ kit comprises two 600RT flashguns and the Viper Transmitter, giving you much greater versatility with easily controllable dual-flashgun setups. The transceivers built into each flashgun enable them to work as master or slave, leaving the Viper out of the mix. Conventional infrared linking is also supported.
Each 600RT can achieve Gn 40 at a zoom setting of 105mm, while recycling after a full-power flash is more than twice as fast as comparable speedlights.
