The A1 is every inch a Profoto light – just smaller. Its unique round head delivers light that’s both natural and beautiful with a soft smooth fall-off. And it’s incredibly easy to use with superfast recycling and a long-lasting battery, so you’ll never miss a shot. On the move, shooting on-camera or off, this is light shaping excellence everywhere.
The new benchmark for on-location lighting
Ideal for on-location photography, the Profoto B1X sets the benchmark once again for cordless, battery-powered monolights. And with both TTL and HSS available, you’re guaranteed the best light shaping experience possible on location, anywhere..
Quick to set up. Easy to use
Profoto doesn’t do complicated. The B1X is a fully cordless light with few simple, intuitive controls and a large easy-to-read LED display. So instead of tripping over cables or fiddling with sub menus or user manuals, you can focus on being creative. And setting up takes seconds. Sometimes less is more.
Capture the moment in perfect light with AirTTL
Finding the right exposure first time can be a challenge when time is limited or the light is constantly changing. AirTTL automatically finds it for you – so all you need to do is point and shoot. Alternatively, you can switch to manual mode, keep your previous TTL settings and fine tune the exposure until you achieve exactly the look and feel you want. And with Air Remote you can wirelessly trigger your lights at the click of a button up to a range of 300 m (1000 ft.) in direct sunlight.
Shape light in broad daylight with HSS
With Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) it doesn’t matter how bright the sun shines. It enables you to use your flash at shutter speeds up to 1/8,000s. So you can overpower the sun and shape your light even with large apertures in broad daylight.
Battery power you can rely on
Don’t worry about losing power at a vital moment – B1X’s rechargeable Lithium-ion battery provides up to 325 flashes at full power and tens of thousands at lowest power. And it recharges in no time.
Powerful enough to light the scene
Whether you’re shooting in the bright sun or low light, B1X offers you both power and precise control with 500Ws over a 9 f-stop power range. And it’s 10 times more powerful as the average speedlight, so you’ve always got plenty of power.
Fast enough to capture the action
No need to miss that perfect moment. With a speed of up to 20 flashes per second and short ﬂash duration of 1/19,000s you’ll always be able to keep up with both the action and your camera.
Modeling light with power and quality
A powerful LED modeling light enables you to preview your shot and evaluate how light and shadows falls on the subject. The high color rendering of the LED also makes it very useful as main or effect light in low light situations.Highlights
