Product Highlights
  • Accepts Profoto Grids Directly
  • Smoother Spread of Light

The Profoto Zoom Reflector 2 is a smoother, more accurate reflector, with an integrated grid holder that accepts Profoto grids directly -- no more need for the expensive extra grid holder.

The light from the new reflector is smoother yet more precise; the fall-off is more even, the dynamic range bigger, the stray light almost completely eliminated.

An optional protection cap -- the Zoom Cap -- fits on top of the reflector, even if it's holding a grid or if the reflector is mounted on a lamp head.

      Pros: Aside from the smoother falloff compared to the original zoom reflector and eliminating the donut-hole effect seen with the original at some positions, the new reflector takes grids without the hassle of a grid holder or barndoors. If you own the old Profoto grids for the zoom reflector barndoors, they will also fit on this reflector (7" grids do not fit, however).

      Cons: A little expensive, but for the convenience it's probably worth it.

      Has all the benefits reported by others, but sorry Profoto, you don't get five stars for designing a product which only takes slightly non-standard size grids. You can buy a set of 4 grids from other brands for much less than a single Profoto grid. The Profoto grids aren't any better, but Profoto designs their reflectors to be slightly larger so that the other brands don't fit.

          As with all Profoto modifiers, this is expensive, but well worth the cost. Great control over light is possible with the zoom, and the build quality is great.

                  If you tried the last generation of reflectors by Profoto, you'll enjoy this new level of quality.

                  It's bigger (which can be a con, because standard sized grids will not fit in. You have to buy the grids for Zoom Reflector 2).

                  As soon as you pick it up, you see the overall quality. I use it with a profoto B1.

                  Light spread: 105° at position 10, 75° at position 7 and 35° at position 6.

                    I bought the Zoom Reflector 2 for my Profoto D1 kit. It works great, it's easy to use and even adds about a half stop more light to my subjects. I will probably get another one. Grids pop in easy. The only thing is you have to make sure to get the correct grid, the first one I bought was too small, I assumed all Profoto grids would be universal. My fault. Lastly, for the price, some sort of carrying case, would have been nice to get with it.

                      Work extremely well and very versatile since I can change the effect on the light pattern from narrow to wide without any spectral effect. The only thing is the price and the fact that it does not come with a case or a padded bag to protect it. At that price, a protective/carrying case should be included. Would have given it 5 stars if it was not for the hefty tag price.

                            I've used these reflectors when renting Profoto kits recently and loved the improved quality of light over the old style zoom reflector especially when used as a direct source of light. The light is crisper, more specular, and the output is about 1/2 stop brighter. So I was definitely happy when these reflectors came with my purchase of an Acute kit and saved me $400+ on trying to swap the old for the new. But even if they didn't, I would buy them anyway, because they're that good.

                                I use this reflector on the Profoto 600R monolight because it will take the grid. I needed to narrow the light. It does just what it says it will do.

                                  Pros: Aside from the smoother falloff compared to the original zoom reflector and eliminating the donut-hole effect seen with the original at some positions, the new reflector takes grids without the hassle of a grid holder or barndoors. If you own the old Profoto grids for the zoom reflector barndoors, they will also fit on this reflector (7" grids do not fit, however).

                                  Cons: A little expensive, but for the convenience it's probably worth it.
