As long as I understand, there are two Profoto speedring mount. This light what speedring uses?
Asked by: Francisco
Profoto only has one type of mount for their studio strobe lights; the side that mounts to the light fixture is identical. However, they have different speedrings depending on the light modifier you are using and on the light fixture you own. The difference is the rod connection used for the speedrings, and the type of softbox you will use on the light fixture. The Profoto B1X 500 AirTTL OCF Monolight is considered both a studio monolight and a part of Profoto's OCF (Off-Camera Flash) system. As such, you may use their Profoto RFi Speed Ring for Profoto Flash Heads, B&H # PRSRP, when using Profoto light modifiers with "RFi" in the name, or you may use the Profoto Speed Ring for OCF Flash Heads, B&H # PROCFSR, with Profoto's OCF flash modifiers with "OCF" in the name. If you are using a third-party universal softbox, I would recommend the Impact Speed Ring for Profoto, B&H # IMSRPRO, for your usage needs.

Is Profoto compatible with Leica digital cameras?

Is Profoto compatible with Leica digital cameras?
Asked by: Tim
Profoto does not make a transmitter that is TTL and HSS for Leica cameras to work with the Profoto B1X 500. Profoto makes a manual transmitter and that should work with most Leica cameras with a hotshoe. This is a link for it, https://bhpho.to/3fCvWb9 .

Does anyone make a fully functional universal ...

Does anyone make a fully functional universal remote for this ProFotoB1 X 500 AirTTL so that I don't need to buy one for every camera brand that I might use?
Asked by: Perry
The Profoto Air Remote Transceiver, B&H # PRAR • MFR # 901031, would be a universal remote compatible for use with the Profoto B1X 500 AirTTL 1-Light To-Go Kit for cameras with a standard ISO hot shoe for MANUAL triggering ONLY. As it only has a single center pin, it will work with most all cameras, but will NOT offer TTL automatic flash output or High Speed Sync capabilities. While you may use third-party wireless radio remotes with the Profoto B1X 500 AirTTL 1-Light To-Go Kit unit via their 1/8" (3.5mm) miniphone sync input, there are no remotes other than the official Profoto radio remotes that will offer full functionality such as manual/TTL flash output control, turning groups on/off, or wireless control of the modeling lamp. These features are not possible with third-party remotes.
