Profoto D1 AIR overview

  • 1Description

This Profoto D1 Air 3-Light Studio Kit combines sophisticated technology, flawless performance, power, and convenience in a set that can handle almost any type of photography. The kit includes two D1 Air 500Ws monolights, one D1 Air 1000Ws monolight, 1.3 x 2' and 2 x 3' softboxes with speed rings, three 8.0' light stands, and a 10-degree grid. It all fits in the included wheeled D1 Trolley Bag. The lights have built-in wireless Air receivers that can be triggered at distances up to 1000' with the purchase of an Air Remote Transceiver or an Air Sync.

  • D1 Air 500W/s Monolight

    The D1 Air 500W/s Monolight is a significant refinement of the ComPact monolight series from the company which having become synonymous with professional strobe lighting, is now celebrating its 40th anniversary.

    No stone has been left unturned in the provision of tech and convenience features that seem to derive from professional photographers' wish lists. The sleek matte-black, high-impact polycarbonate finish encases strobe design that goes beyond the highly visible LED readout and is digital from the ground up. The 7 stop power range breaks down to 1/10 stop increments providing flexibility, precision and consistency, made possible by dual mode SMPS capacitor charging.

    A new built-in 77 degree reflector (5.12" diameter) maximizes case space and is ideal for umbrella and softbox use. Features that we've come to expect from Profoto over the years: short flash duration, rapid recycling, a bright 300W modeling lamp and heavy-duty cabling are all on-board.

    Profoto Air System technology replaces the sync cord, allowing the head to be remotely triggered from as much as 300 meters (1000 feet) away using a Profoto Air Remote or Air Sync transceiver (sold separately). The Air Sync provides wireless triggering (8 channels) via hot shoe or mini plug, while the Air Remote provides wireless triggering as well as full-function head control over 8 channels in 6 distinct groups. Additionally, the D1 Air's syncing and complete functionality can be wirelessly controlled via your PC or Mac by using Profoto's optional Air USB with the included Studio software.

    Modeling lamp operation is user-selectable: On/Off/Proportional and Free (manual). There is also a selectable flash confirmation (dimming) feature in addition to an audible, fully-recycled tone. The D1 is compatible with the full line of widely-acclaimed Profoto light-shaping tools. Finally, the self-sensing multi-voltage circuitry allows you to take the D1 anywhere in the world.  

    High-visibility LED readout with 7 stop range in precise 1/10th stop increments
    Rapid recycling (0.2 - 0.95 sec @ 120V, 0.2 - 0.95 sec. @ 230V) insures that fleeting gestures and defining moments are caught, not lost
    The 300W modeling lamp meets the challenge posed by a high ambient light level on set provides easy pre-visualization of the final shot
    Air System technology makes the sync cord obsolete, allowing remote triggering of your D1 from as much as 1,000' (300 m) away. Alternately, the D1 Air's syncing and complete functionality can be wirelessly controlled via your PC or Mac by using Profoto's optional Air USB and the included Studio software
    Lightweight design with durable polycarbonate shell and built-in 77 degree umbrella reflector
    Self-sensing multi-voltage capability allows you to take the renowned Profoto quality of light anywhere in the world
    Super-short flash duration (1/1,000 - 1/2,600 Sec. t0.5) provides crisp, action-stopping images, and is especially valuable for dance, sports and other highly kinetic subjects
    Connect the D1 to the optional Profoto Air USB for PC and Mac for full control of your entire studio flash system via wireless communication
    Highly consistent shot-to-shot performance within a +/- 0.05 stop range via dual-mode SMPS capacitor technology
    Safety features include auto-diagnostic start-up circuitry, DDP (Deep Discharge Protection), pulse-charging capacitor circuitry temperature control and overload protection
    Fully compatible with the extensive line of renowned Profoto light shaping tools

    Note:D1 Air models require use of a Profoto Air remote or Profoto Air Sync for triggering of the strobe from the camera
