Profoto D2 overview

  • 1Description

With the D2 Duo 500/500 AirTTL 2-Light Kit, Profoto offers two advanced high-performance 500Ws monolights with power cords and a padded case. At 0.03-0.6 sec, the D2 is almost twice as fast as its predecessor and capable of 20 flash per second bursts. Other features include wireless TTL with the separately purchased Air Remote TTL-C for Canon and TTL-N for Nikon, action-freezing flash durations and High Speed Sync support up to 1/8000 sec.

  • D2 500Ws AirTTL Monolight

    Having wowed us with the introduction of the battery-powered TTL B1 and B2 flash heads, Profoto does it again with the AC-powered D2 500Ws AirTTL Monolight. Building on the foundation of the popular D1, this light maxes-out the D1 performance specs while adding wireless TTL from the B1 and B2. With the D2, "speed" is the operative word.

    The D2 500 recycles to full power in 0.6 seconds, almost half the time as the D1 500, and in Freeze Mode, achieves flash durations as short as 1/63,000 of a second, outperforming most studio pack systems. That's good news for special effects photographers and sports shooters. It can also shoot bursts of 20 flashes per second, so you're sure to capture peak action or several versions of it. In addition, the D2 also supports High Speed Sync up to 1/8000 of a second for photographers who want to stop action or use wide apertures with full ambient light control. The 10-stop power range gives ample choices to achieve your objective.

    Besides super-fast operation, the D2 shortens your shooting time with on-board TTL compatibility. Pros who formerly turned their noses up at the term "point-and-shoot" as amateurish will learn to love this technology. Simply set your lights up, set the camera to TTL and shoot. The first shot is nearly always a keeper. The key to this control is the optional Air Remote TTL-C (for Canon) or TTL-N (for Nikon). Operating on 2.4 GHz bandwidth, the wireless transmitter, really a controller, has 8 frequency channels and with 6 groups and a range of up to 330' for TTL triggering and 1000' for normal triggering. Each channel has power ratio capability of +/- 2 stops. If you prefer to use manual, you have 10 stops of power variation.

    The D2 also features an enhanced, intuitive LCD screen display. Modeling Light, Ready Indicator, Mode, Sync, Channel, and Group are easily selected through the Settings button. The display even flips around the way your iPhone does in case you're working with the head upside down or hanging it overhead. The D2 has a self-seeking multi-voltage (100-240) power supply for worldwide use, too. Profoto has covered so many features on the photographers wish list that you'll wonder what they can come up with next.

    Catch the Moment
    The D2 can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. That's fast enough to catch the best of any moment. Ask your subject to jump, and you'll have 20 mid-air exposures to choose from.
    Freeze the Moment
    The D2 can provide super quick flash durations up to 1/63,000 of a second. Shoot a splash of water, and it will be frozen in midair.
    Shoot with Ease Using TTL
    Point-and-shoot in TTL mode using the separately purchased Air Remote TTL-C (for Canon) or TTL-N (for Nikon). Switch to Manual mode and control the light with intuitive buttons and menus.
    Overpower Any Light
    The D2 packs enough punch to overpower the available light in almost any situation. Its power is also an advantage when shooting at longer distances or when using larger light shaping tools.
    Control Your Surroundings
    Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to shoot with shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second. Use HSS to shoot with a wide aperture in bright conditions or to freeze action with absolute sharpness.

Profoto D2 reviews

D2 Duo 500/500 AirTTL 2-Light Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything about this screams quality As a headshot photographer, I always want to make sure that I have great equipment. I decided to upgrade from the Elinchrom D Lite (it was great to start me off) to the Profoto D2 and have to say that this kit is a must. It is worth every dollar. Everything about this product literally scream quality, from the cables to image results. The return on investment is a no brainer. If you are not sure or on the "fence" about getting it, I say go for you. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These lights are everything you could ask for Honestly I was on the fence with buying these are the cost is outrageous compared to other ones and in my area there is nowhere to go to try them out or take a look at them. However, I love B&H and the fact that they will help you with problems and returns if you hate something. That being said I decided to give it a go and honestly, I don't regret it. I pair them with a Canon Mark IV and Canon 1DX and from the moment I got them, they have paired seamlessly. They fire as they are supposed to and not a single thing goes wrong. They are easy to hook up to your pc and mac to update the firmware and I called profoto just to get a sync cable to have in case of emergencies and they were amazing and sent it to be right away. I love these lights. love love love love. if you are on the fence. STOP it and just do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice These lights work really well. I use them along with my B4 and the Profoto trigger. Adjustment is predictable. Worth the price. Build quality exceptional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light, with minor quibbles We have fairly well standardized on Profoto strobes and modifiers in our studio so when it came time to pick up more lights, the D2s were a no-brainer. The usual top quality from Profoto. The new baby pin mount operates smooth as silk, unlike my older D1s which need a mighty solid love tap to loosen up and rotate after releasing the tension knob. The new power cord is much more supple and coils nicely. We had to bake the D1 cords in the sun to smooth out the factory bends in them. The new features are great over all, though it's disappointing that it doesn't appear that you can trigger the strobe with a transceiver and optically like you can with the D1; it's one or the other. Sometimes it's handy to have a light triggered either way without changing settings. The fan seems to run the moment the light is plugged in, even if the light isn't turned on. I don't know if it eventually shuts off, but when you've got multiple of these lights on set, the fan noise is appreciable. Pricey, but you get what you pay for and I appreciate that Profoto continues to innovate.
