Profoto Air Remote Overview

  • 1Description

Maximize the potential of your AirTTL-equipped flashes through the use of an Air Remote TTL-C from Profoto. This powerful remote provides you with an outstanding set of features, including support for wireless power control and TTL, including high-speed sync, with Canon cameras. Operating on a 2.4 GHz frequency, the Air Remote can sync with flashes up to 1000' away with normal triggering and 330' with TTL. TTL is useful because it offers automated shooting and exposure and brings the advantage of high-speed sync, enabling the use of shutter speeds up to 1/8000 second. Also, the controller has 8 channels and 3 groups, ensuring minimal interference with other nearby systems and equipment. Each group can be controlled independently from one another, permitting ±2 EV adjustment of power ratios for TTL systems and nine stops of manual control. You have access to remotely turn on/off the modeling lights or heads, making it easier to adjust lights in your studio. Additionally, there is a mini-USB port for installing firmware updates and it runs on just two AAA batteries.

AirTTL flashes and packs, such as the B1X and Pro-10, fully support TTL communication from an Air Remote TTL-C and a compatible Canon camera. This makes shooting incredibly simple as the camera and flashes automatically determine the best power settings for the scene in order to produce a properly exposed image.
In addition to TTL and manual controls, with AirTTL flashes and packs you can make use of both with hybrid operation where an initial exposure is captured with TTL and then the system is switched into manual where it retains the exposure settings.
By using TTL, users can enjoy almost automatic flash exposure in a range of conditions as well as the ability to access high-speed sync for using shutter speeds up to 1/8000 second. When using TTL, power ratios between groups can be adjusted from 2 EV.
A 2.4GHz radio system ensures exceptional reliability with ranges up to 1000' in standard sync modes and 330' with TTL/HSS.
Users can choose between eight different channels to help minimize interference with other nearby systems and control up to three groups of light on each channel.
A mini-USB port is available for installing firmware updates.

    Profoto Air Remote Reviews

    Air Remote TTL-C for Canon is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 94.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive but effective Because I primarily use my Canon 1Dx, I wasn't able to try the TTL functionality until recently with this controller. Once the firmware update came out at the end of April, I downloaded it and tried shooting with it in TTL mode with my Canon 5D Mark III. For the most part I was very pleased with the use of it. However, there were quite a few times where it misfired or didn't fire at all, and I couldn't figure out why. I turned it off and back on and adjusted from manual back to TTL. I hope it was just a glitch that day. Overall, despite its steep price tag, it works as expected. One thing I wish it did was display the actual power readout of the flash head on the LCD screen of the controller, instead of just + or - with exposure compensation. Not sure why it was designed that way.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fine But Not Great Essential tool for B1's and digital display great to have...BUT as already mentioned here biggest issue is that the power adjustment level on remote does NOT correspond with B1 head. Profoto are you listening....whats the point of having a simple (and expensive) + or - adjustment level on the remote that does not even correspond to the actual power level display on the B1??? STOP pumping this system as revolutionary and start to include essential functionality for photographers... How are we supposed to know and quickly adjust the current power level in manual for each head? This is vital when trying to work alone or quickly with more than 1 head and not keep asking your assistant What is the power level on the B1?Makes me believe that you mainly created these things with TTL in mind.I rarely use TTL (unless i'm forced too) and for me the power adjustments in manual also respond tooooo slowwww from the remote (I'm sure you get the point)....and i can make a cup of tea by the time they get there with more than 1 head....Other gripes...more about the B1's limitations as a closed system and compatibility to trigger Sekonic meter but i will moan about that in the B1 reviews...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The next level in convenience and quality I have only ever used manual off-camera lights my entire career, but now with these high powered TTL and High Speed Sync lights I am more comfortable heading out for a small shoot on my own or knowing a big production will be that much more simplified. There is 1 issue. You can't ever tell the power of the B1 from the remote. It only shows in +/- even if you are in manual mode. That would be ok if you knew that you started at low power or high power but the +/- resets every time so you only know that you are +/- from what ever that last shot was.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job - fairly simple The radio is reliable, light and simple. So in those terms it plays very well. I do wish that it played well with others better. I have other heads that are triggered via Plus III's. - So I can either use in parallel or adjust output with remote but still use pocket wizard as trigger. I also wish that it mirrored the head better. When adjusting power, it shows +1.0, +2.0 etc rather than showing as an example the 7.5 that the head LED displays. I have also yet to be able to adjust the modeling light output from the remote. Works well in the following ways: Power Head On/Off Trigger Head Move Power Up/Down Control Heads independently A, B, Etc\ Turn Modeling On/Off Oh, and as silly concern, the pouch Profoto included with the remote is - stupid. It's a flat bag that is 5X too big with no protection. The bags for the heads are by contrast awesome.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO 1DX MK II support for TTL, yet. Just updated the firmware on this and the B2 pack, but their June 2016 B7 firmware does not yet support TTL for the 1DX MK II as it over exposes. The HSS works when you use the pack on Manual, but this kinda defeats the purpose. Hope they are able to issue a new firmware soon. Until then I can only use my old 5D3 with TTL. : (

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't be agree with the price tag It's a remote. Overpriced.$*, when you just spent around $4500 for the Profoto B1 500 kit.Cause it's not a kit of wireless triggering equipments. It's a remote. The B1 are already wireless, air strobes. It should be included in the B1 kit. The remote works well. It's useful and i think it's normal to own this remote, if you have one or more B1.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice design, but unresponsive I really like the design and display on this thing. Everything is so near perfect, that it hurts my head how slow and unresponsive this thing is.You would imagine that at a pricetag of $, a remote should not think for a half second after you press the button. But thats what this thing does, when you try to increase or decrease intensity of the heads. Sloppy and unacceptable, for such a premium product.In addition, you cannot have one head set to TTL and the others to manual from the remote. Since there is no way a TTL system can figure out a 2 or 3 head setup you need to have partial manual control. This remote dose not give you that option.Profoto.. you are good, but you need to step up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full Control at Your Fingertips Works as described. The only reason I knocked this down a star to 4 is because the connection to my hot shoe on the 5D Mark III is a little too stiff. I would rather it be tight, but it's on the verge of being a bit too tight and a little difficult to attach on the fly. Nikon users, hang in there. I hope this is available for you soon because it is so awesome to have TTL with such powerful lights and great modifiers!

    Will this remote give the power ratio of the D1 Air units? Will this unit trigger a Canon 600EX-RT radio speedlite?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Profoto Air Remote TTL-C can trigger the D1 monolights, but it will not provide a power ratio that can be displayed on it. Additionally, it can only trigger Profoto products since it has a very specific frequency.

    will this radio trigger the D1 lights as well as the B1?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    As the Profoto Air Remote TTL-C has not yet been released, we currently do not know which Profoto lights the unit will be compatible with besides the B1 500 AirTTL. However, Profoto states on their website that a release note of the first firmware version including a full listing of compatible Profoto flashes and Canon cameras will be available by Profoto on their website shortly.

    I am writing regarding Profoto AIR TTL Canon and ...

    I am writing regarding Profoto AIR TTL Canon and D2 flashes. As announced in the manual TTL AIR remote is capable of handling Profoto compatible flashes (I currently use D2s) both in Manual and TTL modes. However, I was trying to find a way of using two D2s in Manual mode while having the other two D2s in TTL mode. Unfortunately, I did not succeed, because once AIR TTL Transmitter was switched on to Manual mode - all flashes were switched to Manual mode as well. and vice versa: once I turn a TTL mode on transmitter then immediately all flashes go to TTL mode. NO SEPARATION at all! Thus, I would highly appreciate any assistance and support on how I can get a few flashes set on MANUAL mode (for background for example) and two other lights - in TTL mode (key and fill lights)?? Thank you! Dmitry
    Asked by: ¿¿¿
    If you wish to use some lights in TTL mode and others in Manual mode, then as stated on page 12 in the Profoto Air Remote TTL's instruction manual under the Notes section, place the lights you wish to control manually in Group D, E, or F. This will allow the flashes to be syncrhonized, but not be a part of the TTL calculation. Therefore, set the flashes you wish to fire in TTL mode in either Group A, B, or C (preferabally, set the key light to Group A and the fill light to Group B), set the flashes to be adjusted manually in Group D, E, or F, and set the Profoto Air Remote TTL to TTL Mode.

    I know that this product allows TTL use with my Canon DSLR. But can it be used in the hotshoe of a different camera (Phase) to trigger the Profoto B1 Air in other available modes (e.g., manual, not ttl) as well as adjust B1 Air light output?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Profoto Air Remote TTL-C can operate in manual mode on any camera with a standard hotshoe, other than a Canon EOS DSLR.
