ExpoImaging has been distributing the HonlPhoto Speed System gear for a while now. I’m a big fan of the Honl gear and now there’s some new gear including a couple of filter kits and speed system bag that I have talked about previously. The full skinny on the latest gear is in the press release below.
Watsonville, CA – June 15, 2009 – ExpoImaging Inc. (www.ExpoImaging.net), developer and distributor of innovative camera accessories including the Honl Photo Speed System, Ray Flash Ring Light Adapter, ExpoDisc Digital White Balance Filter and ExpoAperture2 Depth-of-Field Guide, today announced its support of the expansion of the Honl Photo Speed System line of professional products. The expanded line, which includes new color correction filters, color effects filters, and a Honl Photo products carrying bag, provides photographers with enhanced options for creating studio-quality lighting effects in the field, while upholding the Honl Photo quality, portability and ease-of-use that photographers have come to expect.
“We are thrilled to offer these new products from David Honl, which provide photographers with an even larger array of the most practical and easy-to-use light modifying products on the market,” said Erik Sowder, President of ExpoImaging. “The expansion of the Honl Photo line demonstrates David’s commitment to developing and delivering innovative products that reflect customer demand and fulfill the specific needs of photographers in multiple settings.”
Additions to the Honl Photo product line include:
- Honl Photo Color Correction Filter Kit: colors strobes to correct for tungsten, fluorescent or cool daylight lighting environments that can also be used to create a pleasing warm tone. These superior quality polyester filters from Lee are pre-cut with velcro strips attached so they can be secured quickly to a Honl Photo Speed Strap and can be used in conjunction with Honl Snoots, Gobos and Grids. The usable filter area is 2.5 inches by 4 inches (approx. 64 mm by 102 mm) and can be trimmed to fit individual strobes. The Color Correction Kit, which retails for $29.95 contains two of each of the following filters: 1/2CTB, full CTO, 1/2CTO, 1/4CTO, and Full+Green.
- Honl Photo Color Effects Filter Kit: can be used to add artistic and theatrical color to images, whether lighting a subject or a background. Also made from polyester and pre-cut with velcro strips attached, the filters easily secure to a Speed Strap for use in conjunction with Honl Snoots, Gobos and Grids. The usable filter area is 2.5 inches by 4 inches (approx. 64 mm by 102 mm) and can be trimmed to fit individual strobes. The Color Effects Kit, which retails for $29.95, contains two of each of the following filters: Yellow, Bright Red, Just Blue, Moss Green, and Heavy Frost.
- Honl Photo Speed System Bag: made to carry the entire line of Honl Photo flash tools for maximum portability and easy access to products when on a photo shoot. The bag, which retails for $29.95, is made from water resistant nylon and has a heavy-duty zipper with snap-hook on one end and a nylon loop at the other end for easy attachment to camera bags, lightstands, etc. Honl Photo flash tools do not stick to the interior of the nylon bag.
“I’m pleased to introduce the new products, which were developed based on feedback from photographers and experiences in my own work,” said David Honl. “I look forward to continuing to expand the line in the future, with the aim of providing photographers at all levels with the tools they need to make the most of their speed lights, no matter where or what they’re shooting.”
Developed by veteran photojournalist David Honl, The Honl Photo Speed System is a collection of lightweight, durable and affordable light modifiers for shoe-mount flashes. With retail prices ranging from $9.95 to $29.95, these practical tools were designed to universally fit all shoe-mount flashes without the use of annoying adhesives. As photographers increasingly take advantage of the power and flexibility of modern portable shoe-mount flashes, the Honl Photo Speed System allows them to affordably take studio-style lighting effects on location.
All Honl Photo Professional Speed System products are available at photo dealers nationwide and online by visiting www.ExpoImaging.net.
