    OK, so if you are looking to get the most output from your Profoto light, this reflector will do the trick.. Especially good for use outdoors, where you need to overpower a bright sun.

      I use this Magnum on my B1 head both indoors and out. It works great for matching sun when shooting architecture but also gives a bold look in the studio setting.

        Comments about Magnum Reflector for Profoto Flash Heads:

        Being able to replicate sunlight is a powerful problem solve. And that's what you get with the magnum. With this tool, I'm able to recreate window light any time of day. It's also helpful for lighting sides of buildings, and alleys, for backdrops. In shooting groups, it's also handy for backlighting

          Comments about Magnum Reflector for Profoto Flash Heads:

          I plan on using this outdoors on the beach with my Profoto B1. So far I have only mounted it indoors while giving my B1 it's first test run. It is lightweight and not too big. There are different positions you can mount it at to change your beam spread.

          So far so good - excited to try it outdoors with sunset behind leaping dancers!

          I work mainly in the fitness photography business, and the Magnum is where it's at for me! Perfect variation in degrees of light...even without the optional grid.

            I love the full line of Profoto light shaping tools but this one is a must have! It is crisp bright and absolutely stunning! Whether you want to get hard shadows by using it from farther away or the perfect soft bright light source by bringing it closer this reflector goes with me everywhere along with my beauty dishes!

              Magnum even light

                  Comments about Magnum Reflector for Profoto Flash Heads:

                  Light is very even when brought full forward to 4 position. In the 10 position the light has a slightly darker center. The build is profoto quality. Because of it's size compared to thickness of metal the rim can be bent if you try but it holds its shape well.

                  I love the Magnum reflector, very nice. Delivers more power than any other reflector I have used. A little expensive.
