The Pro Globe gives a wide, surrounding light, similar to a bare bulb flash. It can also be used for background lighting or placed underneath a shooting table. Its soft, bare bulb effect is perfect for quick location lighting.
This is the globe itself -- it does not include the mounting ring. If you wish to mount this on a Profoto flash head, order catalog number 505508.
When used in combination with a softbox mounted around it, the Pro Globe creates very even light with soft shadows.
