ExpoImaging Announces Honl Photo Speed System

Honl Photo Speed System

ExpoImaging has announced that they are now the exclusive U.S. distributor for Honl Photo Professional products, among them the Honl Photo Speed System, a collection of lightweight, durable and affordable light modifiers for shoe-mount flashes including an assortment of grids, snoots, reflectors, gobos and gels.

These products retail from $10 to $30 and are designed to universally fit all shoe-mount flashes without the use of adhesives. They have been developed by veteran photojournalist David Honl and have found acceptance among photographers who don’t want to carry a lot of heavy gear.

The Honl Photo Speed System consists of:

• The Honl Speed Strap – a simple, non-slip velcro strap that wraps around the flash head and attaches and removes in seconds. It provides the mount for all Honl Photo Speed System attachments.

• Honl Photo Speed Grids – weighing just 3 oz and available in 1/4-inch and 1/8-inch grid, the honeycomb-like cells narrow the beam of light from a portable flash unit, producing a small circle of light on a subject.

• The Honl Photo Speed Gobo/Bounce Card – a versatile gobo made of black ballistic nylon on one side and white polymer on the other. The black side can be used to keep light from flaring into a lens when using a flash as a background or hair light. The white side can be used as a bounce card.

• The Honl Photo Speed Snoot/Reflector (patent pending): available as a 5-inch “Shorty” or 8-inch “Regular”, this snoot is constructed of black, ballistic nylon with a gray interior that produces a soft falloff. The snoot can be shaped to concentrate the light from a shoe-mount flash for dramatic cinematic lighting or opened-up to use as a flash bouncer/reflector.

• The Honl Photo Gel Kit – colors strobes to correct for tungsten, fluorescent or daylight lighting environments or adds artistic color effects to images. These superior quality gels are pre-cut and have attached strips of velcro to secure quickly to a Speed Strap, and can be used in conjunction with Honl Snoots, Gobos and Grids.
