        Comments about Profoto AcuteB2 600Ws AirS LiFe Power Pack:

        Love how compact and powerful the AcuteB2 is. Changed the way I shoot formals and portraits at weddings. I only wish the power level could be controlled from the AirRemote.

        I am a commercial portrait and lifestyle photographer, and I also run a busy wedding studio.The Acute B2's are our go to lighint solution for outdoor portraits!My assistant wears the pack in a backpack, we put the head on a Shur-line painters pole with the kacey pole adapter, and voila, a totally mobile solution. It allows us to move quick and get great coverage in a short time!And because it's Profoto, you know it is going to work every time!

            Comments about Profoto AcuteB2 600Ws AirS LiFe Power Pack:

            This power pack is great! Combined with the strobe head it's perfect. For years I've been working with the on-camera flashes trying to rig them so I could use them off camera but I was never happy with the quality of light or having them work consistently. The first time I used the Profoto system I was kicking myself for not get it sooner! It was great to have a great quality light, that fired every time. My advice is to get an extra battery, after about 300 fires the battery will be exhausted.

                Primarily used for location, but works equally as well in the studio. Light weight and portable.

                Comments about Profoto AcuteB2 600Ws AirS LiFe Power Pack:

                This is a great portable supply of power! Coupled with the acute B strobe, I use this to overpower daylight (key-shift) while on-location with my wedding couples. With a 2x2 softbox, it almost has enough power to overpower the sun, but without the diffuser, no problem. I wish this was available in the USA as a kit. My gripe is that at this price, it should come with some sort of case. This thing is designed for portability so why not include a case?
