Profoto 101209 overview

  • 1Description

The Profoto Gel Kit for A1 Flash contains four light balancing filters that neatly fit into the supplied Gel Holder, which quickly clicks onto the A1's magnetic mount. The Full, 1/2 and 1/4 CTO filters are basically graduated conversion filters that warm the A1's daylight-balanced output. The full gel is a complete conversion to approximately 3200K, while the 1/2 is aggressively warm to match other fixtures, or for creative effect. The 1/4 CTO provides a warm late afternoon look. Lastly, the 1/2 Plus Green filter helps balance the output with fluorescent lights.

    Profoto 101209 reviews

    Gel Kit for A1 Flash is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Gel System This is a great gel system for the Profoto A1. Sure, the magnetic mounting and stacking were done by Mag Mod first, but these accessories are much lighter. My major criticism is that I was dumbfounded on how to insert the gel as it is not apparent that the gel holder is two pieces. Thanks to You Tube for providing that answer as the instruction booklet sure didn’t. Also, I would like to purchase more gel holders so I can simply grab whichever correction I want and not have to mess with assembly. The reason I use Profoto at weddings is for the least amount of friction possible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I was reluctant to order these due to the price. It seems like a price gouge for such a simple thing. Ultimately I decided it’s something I had to have...seems silly to have such a nice flash and rig up gels with some I went ahead and ordered them. When they arrived I was pleasantly surprised: these are not thin gel sheets like the OCF gels (that show wear and get crinkled very easily), these are thick rigid plastic/plexiglass type gels that I can see pretty much lasting “forever”. My only small complaint is that I’d prefer 1/4 Green instead of 1/2.... the 1/2 green is typically just a bit too strong, especially with the quality of everyday fluorescent lighting always improving (5+ years ago the 1/2 would have been appropriate, but the last few years I’ve very rarely needed that much). It also would have been nice to see a 1/2 Blue thrown in there for times when you need to go that direction or add a certain look with a kicker when used off camera, etc, but I won’t knock it for that. All in all I was pleasantly surprised and feel like I received a gel kit that justifies the price paid (though perhaps still a bit of the “Profoto tax” built in).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Expensive Solution A very expensive way to add CTO to your flash. Also if you stack too many magnetic things on the end of the Profoto A1, you can end up with stuff flying off mid shoot. It becomes a bit delicate. In my eyes the tungsten CTO color is not right either, takes some post processing to correct.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved the Golden Hour Shots Used the medium one with the A1 flash to take family portraits before an outdoor wedding in the near dark and the light was normal instead of blue-white. Also used it at the reception which was in a barn and lit with warm little lights. It helped blend the flash with the ambient light. And it was so easy! Next time I will tape the magnetic stack of modifiers so I dont worry, though. They held fine, but I was worried.  And I LOVE the A1 flash for remote!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A necessary evil for some... I bought this just in case I need it. It is well designed and pricey as you would expect from Profoto. I would’ve liked to see more gels included (a CTB among others) but it’s not a deal breaker for me. I will look forward to more colors for effects (as with the OCF gels for use with the B1 and B2) that should be forthcoming.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I miss my MagMod It works but the Mag Mod was far better. It was easier/quicker to switch out the gels but since they cost less, worth it to simply buy an additional holder to have it set up already. Unfortunately you dont have much of a choice when shopping for gel kits for the A1 but ultimately it gets the job done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must if you buy the Profoto A1 Quick inexpensive add-on to the Profoto A1. It Really makes the difference when you need to do a little light correction or warm the image up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily Attached Bought with Profoto A1's. Although a little high priced as we all say about Profoto but works great with the A1's. Easy to attach.
