Profoto B1X Overview

  • 1Description

Profoto continues to impress and surprise us, this time with an enhanced version of the B1 battery-powered monolight, the B1X, introduced with the B1X 500 AirTTL 1-Light To-Go Kit with an improved battery that will give you an impressive 325 full-power flashes. All of the familiar professional and convenience features we've come to expect from Profoto are onboard. The B1X has the same dense, durable polymer housing, integrated 77-degree reflector, built-in receiver compatible with Air Remote TTL remotes and intuitive highly visible controls and display.

While it's possible to trigger the flash via its optical slave or hard-wired to its 3.5mm sync port, AirTTL remotes are made for Nikon, Canon, Sony, and Olympus cameras. Busy photographers can literally set up their lights, slip the optional Air Remote TTL-C, TTL-N, TTL-S, or TTL-O remote onto their camera's hot shoe and point-and-shoot without using precious time taking readings and testing.

The (separately purchased) remote is the key to this convenience and control. Operating on 2.4 GHz band width, the remote, really a controller, has 8 frequency channels and with 3 groups per channel and a range of up to 330' for TTL triggering and 1000' for normal non-TTL triggering. Each channel has power ratio capability of +/- 2 stops. If you prefer to use manual you have +/- 9 stops power variation. You've also got modeling light, unit shut-down, and first or rear curtain control. The AirTTL remotes have mini-USB connectors for firmware updates directly from Profoto's website. The B1X's core performance features are equally impressive. The B1X recycles in 0.1 to 1.9 seconds but can deliver up to 20 flashes per second in Quick Burst Mode which engages at lower power settings. Flash duration in Normal Mode is a very fast 1/1000 sec but there's also a Freeze Mode that delivers flash durations as short as 1/19,000 sec for capturing liquid sprays or splashes and other creative effects.

The B1X is also capable of High Speed Sync. HSS is the technical term for syncing flash with shutter speeds shorter than the so-called x-sync, typically 1/250 of a second. It's a useful tool for controlling ambient light and for freezing action. Profoto uses a patent-pending technology that emits an extremely fast series of flash pulses. A simple button-press activates HSS Mode allowing you to shoot at shutter speeds as fast as 1/8000 of a second. As mentioned above, the B1X 500 AirTTL employs an improved, high-capacity, exchangeable lithium-ion battery that gets up to 325 flashes on a 2.5-hour charge with the included 2.8A charger or a 1.5-hour charge with an optional 4.5A quick charger. The battery has fuel gauge-type LEDs that make monitoring remaining power easy. The B1X's modeling light is LED to put less strain on the battery. It provides the equivalent output of a 130W halogen bulb and will run for 120 minutes on a full charge.

Finally, B1X's back panel features a large, bright LCD screen that informs the user of the flash's power level, radio channel and group, sync choice, modeling light mode and recycle alert. There's also a large battery gauge that is very easily read.

The B1X 500 TTL comes with a protective cap, 2.8A charger, and a soft case.

Full TTL with Canon, Nikon, Sony, and Olympus Cameras
The B1X's patent-pending technology fully integrates the flash head with your Canon, Nikon, Sony, or Olympus camera. The integration is so complete that Profoto sometimes refers to the B1X as an "off-camera flash." The key to this control is the Air Remote TTL.
Optional Air Remote
The Air Remote TTL transmitters have 8 frequency channels with 3 groups per channel and a range of up to 330' for TTL triggering. Each channel has power ratio capability of +/- 2 stops in TTL or +/- 9 stops in manual. Modeling light, shut-down of the unit and first or rear curtain exposure can also be selected.
Firmware Updates
Both the flash head and the Air Remote have mini-USB connections for firmware updates directly from Profoto's website.
High Speed Sync as Fast as 1/8000 Sec
High-Speed Sync (HSS) is the technical term for syncing flash with shutter speeds shorter than the so-called x-sync - typically 1/250 of a second. It is a useful tool for controlling ambient light and for freezing action. Profoto uses a unique, patent-pending technology, providing an extremely fast series of flash pulses. Switch to HSS Mode with a simple button-press that allows you to shoot at shutter speeds as fast as 1/8000 of a second.
Exceptionally Short Flash Duration
In Normal Mode, which prioritizes color fidelity, the B1 500 AirTTL is capable of T0.5 flash durations of 1/11,000 sec at minimum power, and 1/1000 sec at full power.
Freeze Mode
Freeze Mode automatically selects the shortest flash duration possible at the user-selected power level. Motion-stopping flash durations of 1/19,000 at minimum power make the B1X 500 AirTTL ideal for high speed shooting.
Quick Burst Mode
At lower power settings Quick Burst Mode allows a series of flashes to be fired at a faster pace than the B1 can recharge, allowing triggering of up to 20 frames per second.
Lithium-Ion Battery Powered
The B1's lithium-ion battery gives you up to 325 full-power flashes and thousands of minimum power flashes on a 2.5-hour charge from the provided 2.8A multi-voltage charger. An optional 4.5A quick charger shortens that time to 1.5 hours. Fuel gauge type LEDs on both the battery and charger allow you to monitor remaining power.
LED Modeling Lamp
An LED modeling light with a 130W tungsten-equivalent output draws very little power from the battery and generates minimal heat. The light can be set to proportional or full power and will dim during recycling if that option is selected.
Control Panel
The B1X's control panel has a 1.4 x 2.5" bright LCD screen that informs the user of the flash's power level, sync choice, modeling light mode, recycle alert, and battery charge level.
Power Variable Over 9 Stops
Power can be regulated over a 9-stop range (2 to 500Ws / 1/256 to 1/1) in 1/10 or 1-stop increments.
Full Light Shaper System Compatibility
With its zoom scale and integrated umbrella sleeve, the B1X 500 AirTTL is compatible with Profoto's extensive line of umbrellas, reflectors, and softboxes.

Profoto B1X Reviews

B1X 500 AirTTL 1-Light To-Go Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Umbrella shaft is now plastic and doesn't hold in place. This won't be an issue if you don't use umbrellas with your B1x but I do so it's a YUGE issue for me. I just got this thing today after waiting a month for my local camera shop to get it in stock. It finally arrived today and I headed down to pick it up. I got it home, charged the batteries and threw my medium umbrella on it, only to watch it slide around with zero effort. Maybe this is a one off defect but will see tomorrow. I did notice that the original B1 had the metal shaft like the D2's, but this seems like it's all plastic. Will update review as soon as I get a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE NEXT HOT COMMODITY My previous kit consist of Alien Bee's B800, B100 strobe lights and Vagabond mini. For the price, they got the job done. Yet when compared to Profoto's B1X, it's like moving from an old Cadillac to a?Lamborghini.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Premium light. Works as advertised. First time owner of Profoto. Have been using Alien Bee 800 and canon speedlites up until now. With he wireless remote, the set up is as quick as my speedlite, but significantly more power available to shoot. Has ability to shoot first curtain, second curtain, or high speed sync. Modeling light helps with quick and accurate light placement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Improvements over an already great system I already own 2 of the older B1s (no X) and wanted to add a third to the arsenal.? The changes between this one and the older model are subtle, but all positive.? The crank handle for angle adjustment is slightly bigger and slightly easier to use.? The battery life is better.? The biggest change is the modeling light is much brighter than previous versions.? As some of my work is "darkened studio" this will help with compositions and focusing over the previous model.? Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what you need This light literally is exactly what you need. Large ceremony and low light was no match for the B1X. I used Profoto years ago, and sold it all in an 'attempt' to stay with the manufacture brand. I'm a Canon shooter, and wanted to stay with Canon. I had 5 600 EX-RT II flashes, and all of them together couldn't do what this ONE light did. I've only had this unit for less than a month, but I can tell you that I'm never leaving Profoto again. As a wedding photographer, I can't afford to miss a single shot. With this unit, you won't!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flash Doesnt flash. Received this item over a week late, due to system inventory issues. Then I charge battery and try to test and everything but the flash works. I hear small clicking noise when pushing the test button. Modeling light works, also display, fan and battery. I plan on returning it for refund. Read instructions and followed them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best in technology and lighting This is my second profoto after the B2 and cannot find a comparison of others on the market in terms of portability and versatility..... the TTL capabilities of the new Air TTL are amazing in full TTL and Manual mode
Date published: 2017-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Awful This light man....don't feel like I ever have to charge my batteries anymore, set up and use is way too easy, and to top it off build quality is great. Come on Profoto, don't you know people want something to complain about?
