Photokina - The Hähnel Stand: Wireless remotes

Photokina is the world's biggest photographic and imaging trade show. It is being held in the Cologne Exhibition Centre, the Kölnmesse, from September 21st to the 26th, and a team from Wex Photographic have travelled to Germany to see what new and exciting products are being announced and on display at Photokina.

For the benefit of any of you that are interested in the Photokina happenings, but didn't want to travel to Germany, weren't able to go to Germany, or, like some of us, had to stay behind and work while your colleagues went to Germany, we will be updating you with all the latest goings-on via the WEX blog and Twitter. What's more, in an exciting new venture for WEX, we will be bringing you a visitor's-eye view of some of the stands and products in the form of WEX TV video clips!

So, keep coming back to the WEX blog and we'll update you with the latest information, news and videos as they come in.

Hähnel Wireless Remote Controls

There are many reasons for using a remote method to fire your camera or flashgun, including (but not limited to) reducing camera shake, mounting your flashgun off camera, and the ability to trigger your camera in a hazardous location from a safer distance.

In this video the Wex Photographic team speak to Michael Hähnel about his range of wireless camera and flash triggers, including the brand new Inspire range which feature a Live View screen for composing and taking your shots from a distance.
