Profoto B2 250 Air overview

  • 1Description

This B2 250 Air TTL Location Kit from Profoto is an ideal way to get into the game-changing battery-powered flash system. The kit includes the B2 250 AirTTL Power Pack, two batteries, a charger, two B2 flash heads, a padded location bag, and a carrying bag with a shoulder strap. Complete the kit and get full wireless TTL operation with the purchase of a dedicated AirRemote TTL transceiver for your Canon or Nikon Camera.

  • B2 250 AirTTL Power Pack without Battery

    In what is starting to seem like an annual event, Profoto has once again introduced a breakthrough product. This time it is the B2 250 AirTTL Power Pack, a part of the expanding OCF (Off-Camera Flash) system that includes the optional B2 flash head. Like another family member, the B1 battery-powered monolight, it boasts full TTL operation with Canon and Nikon cameras with the purchase of an optional Air Remote TTL-C or TTL-N. Just set up your lights, point, and shoot - you're first shot is usually a keeper. It's actually that easy.

    Really a controller, the optional Air Remote TTL-C or N has 8 frequency channels with 3 groups per channel and a range of up to 330' for TTL triggering and 1,000' for normal triggering. Each channel has TTL power ratio capability of +/- 2 stops. If you prefer to use manual, you have +/- 9 stops power variation. You've also got modeling light, unit shut-down, and first- or rear-curtain sync control. The remote also has a mini-USB connector for free firmware updates directly from Profoto's website. Intended for the road, the pack measures 6.3 x 3.1 x 6.7" and weighs in at just 2.2 lb with its optional Li-Ion battery. Sheathed in rugged polymer and rubberized at the top and bottom against impact, the B2's twin outlets each have a dedicated thumbwheel that allows the pack's 250Ws of power to be distributed asymmetrically over a 9-stop range in full or 1/10 steps.

    The 1.75 x 2.25" digital LED screen that displays the power settings is also the key to the pack's many capabilities. Like the B1 before it, the B2 is a real performer, with recycling times from 0.03 - 1.35 sec. and an action-stopping flash duration of 1/1,000 sec. There's also a Freeze Mode that selects a flash duration of 1/15,000 sec. at lower power settings - fast enough to "freeze" water droplets, spray and splashes. The pack and optional head also fire bursts of up to 20 frames per second. High Speed Sync allows shutter sync speeds from 1/4,000 - 1/8,000 sec., giving you extremely wide ambient light options. If you're starting to see a resemblance to the B1, it is completely intentional.

    The B2's Li-Ion battery can be charged in or out of the pack and will give you up to 215 full-power flashes on a 45-60 minute charge from its optional multi-voltage 2.8A battery charger or a trickle charge from an optional car charger. Both can also be used with the B1 Off-Camera monolight. The battery has a built-in gas gauge type LED power level indicator, but you can also check battery status on the top panel LED display.The B2 250 AirTTL Power Pack is also available in kits with 1 or 2 B2 Off-Camera Flash heads, a charger, and a battery or batteries depending on the kit. It all fits in the kit's Location and Carry Bags that measure only 16 x 9 x 9".

    Full TTL with Optional Air Remote TTL-C / TTL-N
    The optional Air Remote TTL-C and TTL-N transceivers for Canon and Nikon Cameras have 8 frequency channels with 3 groups per channel and a range of up to 330' for full TTL triggering. Each channel has power ratio capability of +/- 2 stops in TTL or +/- 9 stops in manual. Modeling light, shut-down of the unit and first or rear curtain exposure can also be selected
    On or Off-Camera Flash
    The separately-purchased B2 head is small and light enough to be put on a bracket on your camera as well as a monopod or stand. Intended for the road, the pack measures 6.3 x 3.1 x 6.7" and weighs in at just 2.2 lb with its optional Li-Ion battery. An entire B2 kit fits in a bag no larger than your average shoulder bag
    Speed, Short Flash Duration and Freeze Mode
    At full power, the B2 250 AirTTL power pack with its separately-purchased flash head recycles in 1.35 seconds. In Normal Mode, which prioritizes color fidelity, the B2 offers flash durations of 1/1,000 sec. while Freeze Mode gives you flash durations as short as 1/15,000 sec. at lower power settings for dramatic action-stopping shots. At lower power settings there's also a burst mode that allows triggering of up to 20 frames per second
  • Li-Ion Battery for B2 250 Power Pack

    The Li-Ion Battery for B2 Power Pack from Profoto is the power source for the B2 Battery Pack. The battery offers 215 full-power flashes on a 45-60 min charge from an optional 2.8A charger. The battery has an LED gas gauge type power status indicator and a rubberized base.

  • B2 OCF Flash Head

    In what is starting to seem like an annual event, Profoto has once again introduced a breakthrough product. This time it is the B2 OCF Flash Head. Part of the expanding Off-Camera Flash (OCF) System, which includes the B2 250Ws battery pack that drives it, the B2 head has its own line of lightweight, custom-made light shapers that are also compatible with the other member of the OCF familythe B1 Off-Camera Flash.

    Weighing in at just 1.5 lb, the sturdily made B2 head measures 4" long, has a 3.9" diameter, and fits in the palm of your hand. A barely visible umbrella channel runs through the top of the head, while its tethered 6.5' head cable can be lengthened with a 9.8' extension for large groups or for hanging in hard-to-reach places. An included stand or pole-mount with a ratcheting handle can be removed for mounting to a flash bracket. The B2's flash tube and 50W halogen-equivalent LED modeling lamp are protected by a frosted glass plate, while its 3.9" diameter housing accepts a new line of optional accessories that include 1.3 x 1.3', 2x3', and 1x3' softboxes and a 2' octa box. The speedring for the softboxes has be scaled down and fitted with an easy snap-in system for the poles, while the hard rubber collar has been replaced with easy-slide silicone. All accessories in the OCF family also fit the B1 Off-Camera Flash.

    Also worth mentioning are the four-way barn doors with gel clips, a snoot, and 10/20/30-degree three-grid set that can be used in conjunction with the barndoors.

    On or Off-Camera Flash
    The B2 head is small and light enough to be put on a bracket on your camera as well as a monopod or stand.
    Full TTL
    The B2 offers full TTL operation with both Canon and Nikon cameras via the optional Air Remote TTL-C or TTL-N transceivers. Just point and shootthe B2 will automatically adjust its light output to provide you with the right exposure.
    Portability
    The B2 is designed to help you to add a little or a lot of extra light wherever it is needed. The entire B2 kit fits in a bag no larger than your average shoulder bag.
    Speed
    At full power, the B2 head with its separately purchased power pack recharges in 1.35 seconds. At lower power settings, it will produce up to 20 flashes per second, catching even the most fleeting gestures.
    Light Shaping
    The built-in reflector renders a wide, even light spread that can be modified with any of the more than 150 optional light-shaping tools available.
  • Battery Charger 2.8A for B1 and B2 500 AirTTL

    The Battery Charger 2.8A for B1 and B2 500 AirTTL from Profoto will charge the B1's and B2's Lithium-ion batteries in 2 hours. This multi-voltage charger features LED indicators to easily monitor charge status.

  • Carrying Bag for B2 Off-Camera Light System

    The Carrying Bag for B2 Off-Camera Light from Profoto is a thick neoprene, form-fitting case that holds and protects the B2 250 AirTTL with a mounted Li-Ion Battery. It features a belt loop, an adjustable shoulder strap, and a short strap for hanging the pack from a light stand or other support.

  • B2 Location Bag for B2 Off-Camera Flash System (Black)

    Two bags in one, the black B2 Location Bag for B2 Off-Camera Flash System from Profoto is a padded nylon case with top-zippered closure, a compartment for the B2 Power Pack, and two removable padded shells for B2 flash heads. The case can hold all the above plus a charger, extra battery, and a head extension cable.

    The second part of the bag consists of a removable nylon shell for encasing the padded bag within. It measures approximately 16 x 9 x 9" and features top-zippered closure, handles, a shoulder strap, and topside straps for poles, monopods, or stands.

Profoto B2 250 Air reviews

B2 250 Air TTL Location Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING What a unit!! Battery never runs outs. Easy controls. Powerful enough for location and then some. Flash duration SHORT. I froze airborne dancers. Having a small head on a stand is the ticket. I work alone. Imagine that? The videos show photo with assistants. Great. I've been doing location and studio work for 35 years and now enjoy less hassle, no more heavy monobloc heads. The carry kit is fast to set up and put up. I used the modeling lights a few times but honestly in a well lit room they are not needed, unless you are uncertain where to put your lights. 200s with two heads? need more f stop shoot iso 400. There is no unit that can do all. This is close enough. Pricey? Built like a tank. All tight and right. Worth every penny. Period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome. Quick working. Sent in. Got back super quick. This is a killer tool. Killer. Smokes several speedlights and super easy to travel with. Not real good w anything larger than a 3' softbox but the smaller 4' strip box works well. For studio I purchased the larger 500watt B1 and 1,000 watt D2 and this gives you a nice range of power. If you're on a budget the D1 500 or 1000's are awesome too. ALL the light modifiers that work on the B2 kit can be used on the larger powered B1, D1, D2 etc. however they are designed for the smaller power of the B2's. Profoto has a killer youtube channel w the best resources out there. Had a power back issue w the B2 unit, sent it in and got it back in 1 week. Service is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just keeps getting better I have been shopping for the right artificial lighting product for a few years and never saw a product that just seemed to fit with the way I shoot and my resources. Many studio lights are too bulky for me to store easily and a light that requires a full size C stand make storage and transport even more difficult. After working with the staff at B&H for about an hour and listening in as the Profoto rep helped someone who was obviously a big spender, I knew I had found the system that is right for me now. Easy to set up and tear down. Can replace a Quantum package if paired with a Promedia Gear Boomerang Bracket. I went whole hog but if you intend to but the B2s on stands by the extension cables. Also the light modifiers made for the OCF system are lightweight and high quality.So far I have only shot inside with them but with the warm weather I will be shooting outside as well. I also picked up a couple of spare batteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love at First Light I've just had my kit for a couple of days but I've had a chance to try them out in a couple of different situations. I had a small arts event yesterday so I was able to try one light on a bracket. I should say I wanted these to replace my Quantum gear, which is complicated and kind of twitchy with a lot of little parts to put together. I was very happy with how quickly and easily I was able to pop this on a bracket and start shooting, getting great exposures every time. The kit bag itself is light and compact. Portability was important to me as I am not getting any younger. Today I tried it on location with a model and ran it through several different configurations with the @' OCF Octa, bare headed, grids, etc. and was blown away by the beautiful quality of the light. The TTL worked flawlessly. In manual mode, it was a piece of cake to make the power adjustments. The controls are very intuitive and opposed to the QFlash system which requires hours of study and practice to figure out the simplest changes. HSS worked great right out of the box. I shot some with the Octabox and some bare headed and loved both looks. The two things I was not thrilled about are: the umbrella slot on the B-2 heads are too smally for the shoot through umbrella I liked to use on my Quantum. My other issue is the cable lengths. The second light is essentially useless except in a clamshell setup. You can't separate them enough to do anything else with it. That's almost criminal. It's ok on one light since you can always hang the pack on your assistant or a light stand, but even that's not long enough to set the pack on the ground if you extent the lightstand where you really need it. So just know that you will need to shell out another $200 for the extension cable before you can really get any use out of the second light. This is why I only gave this product 4 starts. If not for this it would be 5+++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing These are amazing, small, powerful lights. Worth the profoto price if you can afford it and way less cumbersome than dealing with a bunch of canon 600's or 580's! Batteries do run fast if you're actually trying to do a studio set up somewhere so you need extra batteries on hand or an outlet. The bonus is that the batteries charge super fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The B2 Kit is Awesome, should have purchased it first. Finally ! the perfect On-location lighting Kit | though expensive! It is SO worth it. I am so disappointed that I didn't choose this kit as my first choice over the B1 solution. I could have saved myself a lot of time and money experimenting with cheaper less efficient systems. I love this system, it is small and compact, flexible and portable. Wireless and compatible with my primary Canon gear, and even when TTL is not available with my Sony gear the Profoto Air Remote works GREAT! and all the other features are still available. Oh and don't let me forget FAST, the recycle time is amazing. The cost of the extension cord is a bummer, so I will purchase an additional pack and battery for additional convenience Thanks Profoto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth It Bought the B2 Location Kit to supplement my two B1s. Expensive, but they work as advertised and integrate with the B1s/TTL perfectly. The extension cord, which is another $200.00, is necessary. Battery recharges very fast. Carrying case is well made and functional. If you can get past the price, well worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally have the ProFoto durability for travel and heavy use We highly recommend this ProFoto B2. The light weight & solid build with the endurance for our heavy travel. We've used it in both TTL (w/Air Remote) and Manual mode. Most important is it functions when we get to the job! So many times we've arrived with faulty equipment, UGH! Never again will that happen. We've owned four different Einsteins and they are fantastic when they work. I personally need a more durable product. The Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Essential Two Flash Wireless Kit is really good for travel but that set-up doesn't recycle fast enoughl. Great pics if you give them plenty of time to recycle but certainly not a PRO solution for taking lot's of pics at our assignments. Heads up regarding the latest HSS firmware for MAC users. Go to ProFoto website and register your products so you can get these updates otherwise you will not have the high-speed sync. I uploaded the firmware update(s) into my B2 Power Pack and Air Remote using OS 10.9- (Mavericks). Using 10.10- (Yosemite) will not work yet as of 6/3/15. It took me a while to figure this out. I'm an pro action-sports photog and instructor(s) so using the High-Speed Sync is a must. We bought a car-charger, two of the extension cables (expensive!), two extra batteries, two soft boxes w/speed-rings & an extra AirTTL so both me and a 2nd photog can shoot at the same time which we haven't tried yet. BTW according to the instructions you can charge to the battery while using the B2. You can't do that with the B1 500. Interesting feature. The crystal ball says having the B1 500 in a year as an add-on to this kit is very likely ;) Rick & Josh
