Profoto Air Remote overview

  • 1Description

Maximize the potential of your AirTTL-equipped flashes through the use of an Air Remote TTL-S 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 Sony 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-S and a compatible Sony 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-S for Sony is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works flawlessly, superb customer service I did the switch from Canon to Sony so I purchased this to replace my� Profoto Air Remote TTL-C for Canon. As life would have it I dropped this and pretty much smashed the case a few weeks after receiving it. I assumed it a goner but upon holding it together with some gaffer tape discovered it still worked it was just the shell and hot shoe foot that was broken. I sent it off to Profoto to see if it could be repaired and about 2 weeks later it showed up looking all new and shiny, fully repaired for free. Profoto is not the cheapest way to go but it is quality, add to that superb customer service and you have gear that is truly professional.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with the a99ii Purchased this from B&H. Doesn't work correctly with my a99ii. Sent the trigger back to Profoto directly and they sent me another which didn't work correctly either. I made a video of my issues to prove how it wasn't working including pictures of every setting on my camera. Neither Profoto service dept or the people at their head quarters can figure out why it's not working, 2 different triggers and 2 different a99ii bodies but yet they still claim that it works with the a99ii. This has been going on for a month now and still no resolution. Have no choice but to give up and send everything back. I really wanted this thing to work. So frustrated at this point I can't tell you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My review revised I posted the first review on this remote. Profoto actually paid for me to send the unit to them, tested it, and it worked perfectly. They sent it back to me, and I found out that the contacts on my A7RII were not perfectly clean, and with a cleaning, got the remote to connect. TTL was working as advertised, but HSS was not functioning correctly. I called Thomas at Profoto, and he said the B1's had a firmware update just today, so I downloaded it for my two B1's, and voila perfect HSS and TTL... Now I'm a happy camper. However, there is an issue with making contact with the camera/remote easily... You need to make sure the pins are clean, and aligned with the remote. Other than that, looks like all is good. Thanks to Profoto for their fantastic customer service.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit of a maze to setup. The product works great once you get it to work! All your Profoto lights have to be on the latest firmware, as does your Sony camera. You should note that this trigger is only good for A7_ii cameras. It doesn't work on the original A7 series or the A6xxx series. Further, you will need to upgrade the trigger software out of the box. This is where the difficulty comes in. It does not upgrade easily. If you follow the directions you will find you must disconnect anything with a USB port and connect the trigger to a non-powered port. And then the fine print says it may take a few attempts. Mine took 4 attempts that include full computer re-boots. Yes, it works, but the process is anything but user friendly. I would give the product a five if it worked out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mine works flawlessly I got mine on the 27th, and did not play with until the 31st. An only played with it because of what someone else said, it didn't work. Broke out the A7ll and the B1 along with this remote and didn't read the manual, and as Peter Hurley would say SHABANG !!!! Everything is wonderful

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawlessly When I read the very first review I thought I should check mine to make sure it worked. I did check mine. Worked flawlessly. Oh happy day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just about perfect... This trigger worked right out of the box for me with my Sony A7R II with Profoto B2 strobes. My B2's aren't even on the latest firmware. I was a bit upset when I noticed the Sync button (controlled which sync mode you're in... 1st Curtain, 2nd Curtain or High Speed Sync) was missing on this model. When I found out that this is automatically controlled by the shutter speed selected on the camera, I calmed down... That actually sounds great. The bad part is it doesn't look like you get a 2nd (Rear) Curtain option. For me, it's no big deal as I hardly ever used it but for those who really need to freeze action at the end of the exposure, you may be out of luck. For flashes this expensive, you would think all functionality would be available. It's the only reason I've given this 4 starts instead of 5. Perhaps a Sony representative can explain what I'm missing here. Other than that, it's exactly what I've been waiting for. It did come with a small wrist strap and a small plastic protective cover (begging to be lost) for the delicate Sony hotshoe connectors.
