Profoto B10 overview

  • 1Description

Profoto continues to affirm their commitment to full-featured flash systems with onboard TTL capability with the introduction of the impressive, battery-powered B10 OCF Flash Head. Part of the OCF family which began with the reduced-size B2 power pack, continued with the full-sized B1X monolight, and most recently the A1 shoe-mount Studio Light, the B10 combines the best characteristics of the monolight with those of auto-exposure, on-camera flashes. In a move that's consistent with their ongoing "techno-logic" Profoto packs all the features of the previous OCF lights into the 7" B10.

The 250Ws light has a 10-stop variable power range and swift recycle times of 0.05 to 2.2 seconds. Flash duration is an action-stopping 1/7,000 second but there's a Freeze Mode that prioritizes flash duration resulting in a very short 1/50,000 second at minimum power. The B10 is powered by a lithium-ion battery that gives a notable 400 full-power flashes on a 90 minute charge, while 60 minutes will top up the battery to 80% if you're short of time. Of course, one of the B10's most exciting features is TTL technology that takes advantage of your DSLR's flash auto-exposure system and significantly shortens the time between inspiration and execution and capture. The path to this great feature is purchase of an optional wireless radio Air Remote TTL controller which is currently made for Nikon, Canon, Fujifilm, Olympus, and Sony cameras.

The hot-shoe-mounting 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. It can trigger the B10 in manual mode at distances up to 1000 feet and in TTL mode up to 300 feet - the length of a football field. The B10 and the Air Remote TTL also support High Speed Sync with shutter speeds as quick as 1/8000 sec to give the photographer complete control of background illumination or to allow use of wide apertures for creative work. There's also a Profoto Smartphone App that allows you to capture well-lit images wirelessly with your phone.

Besides this multitude of features, the B10 has an LED modeling light with the equivalent power of a 150W incandescent lamp that's not only dimmable, but has color temperature that's variable from 3000 to 6500K. Its high CRI of 90-96 makes it usable for video. The battery will give you 75 minutes run time on full power.

A small form factor, battery power, remote control, photo and video compatibility, and smartphone connectivity make the B10 another impressive entry in the OCF roster.

    Profoto B10 reviews

    B10 OCF Flash Head is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light, better weight As an everyday user of the B1X have to say this may be my new favorite light.  Color and consistency is great.  Love the weight of it combined with the power is a perfect mixture.  Sure there are cheaper out there in the Godox world, but I like the peace of mind knowing the build quality and performance will always be there from my Profoto gear.  Highly recommended, now use this light every time I shoot which is about 4 days a week.  Battery lasts a good amount of time too on full power.  I tend to plug in between shoots though as there is no spare shipping yet so just have the one battery for now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb light So far Im quite impressed with this light. Powerful, lightweight, syncs very well with my B2 Kit and A1. Ive used it for headshots, as well as event photography. Battery performance is a lot better than expected. Just shot ~200 images  (power setting ~7). Battery indicator still shows 4 bars! I will probably add another B10 to my kit. FYI, member PPA C.P.P. In business over 30 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and light and packed with technology Just received my B10 today. The first thing I noticed is the size, its pretty small- half the weight of a B1. The build quality is very impressive; the knobs and controls feel very well damped and silky. The display is crisp and bright. The menu is incredibly well designed; simple and intuitive. For most of my location work, this unit is going to be absolutely perfect. I can see where the B10 will compliment and fit in well with my B1s, B2, and A1s. I have an upcoming wedding in Miami, and since Im flying, the B10 and 2-3 A1s will be lightweight solution for most any lighting situations. The modeling light on this thing is, compared to the B1, super bright and easily adjustable. Being able to adjust the color temperature is going open up a new set of possibilities for continuous light situations. I downloaded the Profoto app, and it works seamlessly and intuitively with the B10. Having the additional control of modeling light intensity and color temp from my smart phone is great. Theres a host of other features that the app allows, and its brilliant and simple to use. The technology packed into this little wonder is going to make my photography work easier and more enjoyable. It will allow me to create beautiful images for my clients in a way that previously not possible. It comes with a well-designed case to keep everything together. Last but not least is the light quality- it is, light all other Profoto products, fantastic. No regrets with this purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sent from Heaven I put this unit up against my B1 heads for comparison. The build is Profoto quality. The colour is consistent across the output range. with the variable colour temp modeling light it can be used for video if needed or as warm light source if you want to mix light. The winner was when it fit in my camera case as a compact field unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected All I can say is WOW. The design and build of this light is exceptional, solid and COMPACT. The light output from such a small compact light is difficult to comprehend. Honestly not sure I will need two as have a B1X and a couple A1’s.... but if you need a two light kit it won’t get more compact than this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it Its small powerful and amazing. Its only downside is the battery life however, if you buy a spare and swap them you should be good for your whole shoot. This is a must have!!
    Date published: 2018-11-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It lives up to the hype! So Small I have been excited for this unit for ever since those preview videos. Pretty much this is a much smaller and very portable B1 (sacrificing that 1 stop isnt that much for the trade offs of a much better constant light and half the weight). The charging unit is a two cord system similar to how the B1 is, it has one piece that connects into the battery itself and another cord that goes into the wall. My unit didnt come with the cord that connects into the wall (might need an aftermarket order) but BH was able to remedy this. If this is a recurring issue with how the profoto packages work, I would rather opt for this included with the B10 light instead of the light stand they throw in. Not a fan of that freebie. Ive used this thing on about 4 shoots and one wedding so far with only the one battery it comes with and on each shoot, as long as you begin a fully charged battery and arent using this beast at full power for entire day/every shot, it has lasted the day without charging. I personally tend to shoot a little powered down to act more like a balanced light with the ambient than to over-power it. However you can always plug it in and shoot wherever theres an outlet. The downside so far is that this thing does not pair with the original Profoto Magnum reflector well, it sits a little recessed, so I would recommend the OCF version if you use hard light. I use the standard 7 reflector on this and all my other speed rings/profoto modifiers work with the exception of this one. I have a feeling it wont work with the long throw reflector too, but I dont have that one so cant tell you guys. I have a D2 unit, a B1, and now this B10 and its a great balance to be ready to shoot anywhere and plug in or be battery powered on location. The best reaction so far has been at weddings with the B10 hand held and people are doing selfies/group photos with their phones and I turn on that constant light and it pretty much becomes the best phone photos of people theyve ever had cause of the quality of that light. Enjoy if you get it! Of course everyones caveat is that its expensive.. but if youre already in the Profoto ecosystem, pricing wise its what you would expect.. a 500 watt B1x is 2095, a 1000 watt D2 is 2095.. and a D2 500 watt is 1595.. so with the B10 being 1595, it fits exactly in that pricing model.
