Profoto A1


Profoto has expanded its lighting line-up, which already features stand-out flash units such as the B1X, with the smallest flash they have ever made.

The Profoto A1, which weighs 560g, features a round head that produces light with a soft-smooth fall-off. The head also has magnetic mounts built in so modifiers and other light shaping tools can be quickly clicked on and off. 

Recycle times are four times faster than other flashguns and AirTTL helps with setting the exposure. As for its energy range and usage, its max energy level is 76Ws and it has an energy range of 9 f-stops. 

Other features include a zoom function that allows you to make fine adjustments to the spread of light by simply twisting the zoom ring on the head and for accuracy, it has a modeling light built-in to the head – so you can see what you're going to get before you press the shutter.

The user interface is simple, intuitive and features a large high-contrast display. Plus, the A1 has its own Li-ion high capacity battery built-in which lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries. Battery life sits around the 350 full power flash mark and the battery will have a full charge in 80 minutes. 

The Profoto will be available towards the end of September.
