New Announcement from Profoto

Almost 4 years ago, Profoto shook up the photo lighting market when they introduced their OCF (Off Camera Flash) line with the the flagship Profoto B1. Profoto described the B1 as the first monolight with TTL capabilities. Using their own AirTTL system, these strobes would work with various camera brands to create fast, accurate exposures. Since the B1 hit the streets, Profoto has continued to grow the OCF line and today introduces the B1X, designed to give even more versatility to a photographer on the go. With a longer battery life, more range in HHS and a brighter modeling light, the B1X continues to move the OCF line forward. Read More

Profoto B1X

Power in all the right places

We’d like to think of the new B1X as power with a purpose. And that purpose is simple, we want image creators everywhere to be able to realize their vision. If that’s halfway up a mountain, overpowering the sun in the middle of the desert or hanging off a rock overlooking the Mediterranean – then so be it.

That’s why the LED modeling light adds 80% more light output, the battery holds 50% more power and why the B1X has the widest HSS range available on any flash.
Because we want you to have power in all the right places. And the most important place of all just happens to be your imagination.

Quick to set up. Easy to use.
The B1X is a fully cordless light with 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.

Capture the moment with AirTTL
Finding the right exposure the first time can be a challenge when time is limited or the light is constantly changing. AirTTL automatically does it all for you, just point and shoot.
