Overview
  • 1Description

The D1 500W/s 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 40th anniversary.

No stone has been left unturned in the provision of tech and convenience features that seem to derive from professional photographers' wish lists. The sleek matte-black, high-impact polycarbonate finish encases strobe design that goes beyond the highly visible LED readout and 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 new 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.

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.  

High-visibility LED readout with 7 stop range in precise 1/10th stop increments
Rapid recycling (0.2 - 0.95 sec @ 120V, 0.2 - 0.95 sec. @ 230V) insures that fleeting gestures and defining moments are caught, not lost
The 300W modeling lamp meets the challenge posed by a high ambient light level on set provides easy pre-visualization of the final shot
Trigger your D1 via the included sync cord or built in photocell slave
Lightweight design with durable polycarbonate shell and built-in 77 degree umbrella reflector
Self-sensing multi-voltage capability allows you to take the renowned Profoto quality of light anywhere in the world
Super-short flash duration (1/1,000 - 1/2,600 Sec. t0.5) provides crisp, action-stopping images, and is especially valuable for dance, sports and other highly kinetic subjects
Connect the D1 to the optional Profoto Air USB for PC and Mac for full control of your entire studio flash system via wireless communication
Highly consistent shot-to-shot performance within a +/- 0.05 stop range via dual-mode SMPS capacitor technology
Safety features include auto-diagnostic start-up circuitry, DDP (Deep Discharge Protection), pulse-charging capacitor circuitry temperature control and overload protection
Fully compatible with the extensive line of renowned Profoto light shaping tools

Note:D1 Air models require use of a Profoto Air remote or Profoto Air Sync for triggering of the strobe from the camera
