The Profoto D1 Air monolight is a significant refinement of the ComPact monolight series from the company which having become synonymous with professional strobe lighting, is now celebrating its 44th anniversary.

This Profoto D1 Air 3 Head Studio Kit includes 1- D1 Air 500W/s monolight, 2- D1 Air 1,000W/s monolights, a 1.0 x 1.3' and 2.0 x 3' softboxes with speed rings, 3- 8.0' light stands, a 10 degree grid and an Air Remote for wireless triggering. It all fits in the included wheeled D1 Trolley Bag.

No stone has been left unturned in the provision of tech and convenience features that seem to derive from professional photographers' wish lists. Beneath the sleek matte-black, high-impact polycarbonate finish and highly visible LED readout is strobe design that is digital from the ground up. The 7 stop power range breaks down to 1/10 stop increments providing flexibility, precision and consistency, made possible by dual mode SMPS capacitor charging.

A built-in 77 degree reflector (5.12" diameter) maximizes case space and is ideal for umbrella and softbox use. Features that we've come to expect from Profoto over the years: short flash duration, rapid recycling, a bright 300W modeling lamp and heavy-duty cabling are all on-board.

Profoto Air System technology replaces the sync cord, allowing the head to be remotely triggered from as much as 1,000' (300 m) away using the included Air Remote transceiver. The Air Remote provides 8-channel triggering via hot shoe or mini plug, as well as full-function head control over 8 channels in 6 distinct groups. Additionally, D1 syncing and complete functionality can be wirelessly controlled via your PC or Mac by using Profoto's optional Air USB and Studio Air systems.

Modeling lamp operation is user-selectable: On/Off/Proportional and Free (manual). There is also a selectable flash confirmation (dimming) feature in addition to an audible, fully-recycled tone. The D1 is compatible with the full line of widely-acclaimed Profoto light-shaping tools. Finally, the self-sensing multi-voltage circuitry allows you to take the D1 anywhere in the world.

      I have been using Profoto gear for years. Mostly been using the acutes with a 2400 watt box. The ease of these monolights to adjust and contol from my remote makes dialing in my lights an ease. Great product like always from Profoto. Incredible light.

      Comments about Profoto D1 Air 3 Head Studio Kit - 2- 1000W/s / 1- 500W/s:

      Profoto seems to be about the best and most active photo lighting engineering company in the business. I knew before I oredered this kit that the light stands included were inadequate. A kit with 1000s and 500 watt second lights is not a portrature kit but for commercial or at minimum group photography and the included 7 or 7.5' stands are mostly useless for me. I will likely pull them from the case to lighten my load and pack in my 13' and other stands. That aside this is a good powerful and controlable light kit- PREMIUM PRICE. My issue of question for Profoto is now service. In addition to this kit I ordered Profoto Air USB w/Studio Air Software. I have problems and so far customer service is lacking. For the money and for Professionals they should be more service oriented. B&H as always Shines!

      Are they expensive? Yes, but they deliver on quality. The lights (and kit) are well made, and deliver on performance. The quality is so much more than what I had before. Warning, once you have gone to these it will be hard if not impossible to go back.

        From the first touch the quality of the Profoto D1 Air is evident. Solid construction, precise & repeatable control, superb light quality combined with ease of use makes this monolight a perfect choice for the needs a photographer on the go and in the studio too. The stands are a bit lightweight, but probably to be expected for a mobile kit like this. The price is a little steep, but so far no regrets at all. The D1 Air's have preformed as advertised!

        This kits is fantastic. Incredibly well made and packaged. Great for travel and in studio. The Air Remote is flawless on all of my cameras. I never shot studio stuff in the past but now I will.
