Profoto B2 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Profoto B2 reviews

    B2 OCF Flash Head is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Location I purchased the Location kit with 2 heads and have used them a few times and love the light weight and portability. It's a well made unit like you would expect from Profoto. They're easy to use and change settings from the remote. I would probably rethink this if buying again and get just the one head. I see using the second head being being used with a cord as kind of a hassle unless you're in the studio. I would bought 1 B2 and 1 B1. I may buy a B1 to go with the system anyway. I used the TTL and the HSS and it worked great without much adjustment. Very easy to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better location light than B1 Despite loving most aspects of the Profoto B1 lights, the significant overall weight, all held high up on a light stand, often additionally weighted by a softbox, meant that you needed really heavy duty lightstands, and if there was even the hint of wind, they were unusable. Too much weight up high Enter the B2's. What an improvement. More compact, lighter weight, cheaper price and only 1 stop less power, and the B2 becomes the pro location shooter's light of choice. Perfect TTL flash illumination on first shot, thereafter, easy adjustment of each light in manual mode, make this light so easy for both the amateur and the professional. Plus HSS gives perfect flash illumination with shutter speeds all the way up to 1/8000th second.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My B2's make shooting so much more enjoyable. I really love these, I now have 5. They are awesome with the Air Remote. the light modifiers can be a little difficult to get on the light sometimes, but not often. Even with that, they are so much better to work with than all the other light systems I've worked with. Profoto may be expensive, but I started using them and haven't looked back. They make shooting for me so much more enjoyable. I'm interested to see if they add an Air Remote for Sony in the future.
