Profoto D1 Air 500W/s Monolight

The D1 Air 500W/s Monolight is a significant refinement of the ComPact monolight series from the company which having become synonymous with professional strobe lighting, is now celebrating its 40th anniversary.

No stone has been left unturned in the provision of tech and convenience features that seem to derive from professional photographers' wish lists. The sleek matte-black, high-impact polycarbonate finish encases strobe design that goes beyond the highly visible LED readout and is digital from the ground up. The 7 stop power range breaks down to 1/10 stop increments providing flexibility, precision and consistency, made possible by dual mode SMPS capacitor charging.

A new built-in 77 degree reflector (5.12" diameter) maximizes case space and is ideal for umbrella and softbox use. Features that we've come to expect from Profoto over the years: short flash duration, rapid recycling, a bright 300W modeling lamp and heavy-duty cabling are all on-board.

Profoto Air System technology replaces the sync cord, allowing the head to be remotely triggered from as much as 300 meters (1000 feet) away using a Profoto Air Remote or Air Sync transceiver (sold separately). The Air Sync provides wireless triggering (8 channels) via hot shoe or mini plug, while the Air Remote provides wireless triggering as well as full-function head control over 8 channels in 6 distinct groups. Additionally, the D1 Air's syncing and complete functionality can be wirelessly controlled via your PC or Mac by using Profoto's optional Air USB with the included Studio software.

Modeling lamp operation is user-selectable: On/Off/Proportional and Free (manual). There is also a selectable flash confirmation (dimming) feature in addition to an audible, fully-recycled tone. The D1 is compatible with the full line of widely-acclaimed Profoto light-shaping tools. Finally, the self-sensing multi-voltage circuitry allows you to take the D1 anywhere in the world.  

High-visibility LED readout with 7 stop range in precise 1/10th stop increments
Rapid recycling (0.2 - 0.95 sec @ 120V, 0.2 - 0.95 sec. @ 230V) insures that fleeting gestures and defining moments are caught, not lost
The 300W modeling lamp meets the challenge posed by a high ambient light level on set provides easy pre-visualization of the final shot
Air System technology makes the sync cord obsolete, allowing remote triggering of your D1 from as much as 1,000' (300 m) away. Alternately, the D1 Air's syncing and complete functionality can be wirelessly controlled via your PC or Mac by using Profoto's optional Air USB and the included Studio software
Lightweight design with durable polycarbonate shell and built-in 77 degree umbrella reflector
Self-sensing multi-voltage capability allows you to take the renowned Profoto quality of light anywhere in the world
Super-short flash duration (1/1,000 - 1/2,600 Sec. t0.5) provides crisp, action-stopping images, and is especially valuable for dance, sports and other highly kinetic subjects
Connect the D1 to the optional Profoto Air USB for PC and Mac for full control of your entire studio flash system via wireless communication
Highly consistent shot-to-shot performance within a +/- 0.05 stop range via dual-mode SMPS capacitor technology
Safety features include auto-diagnostic start-up circuitry, DDP (Deep Discharge Protection), pulse-charging capacitor circuitry temperature control and overload protection
Fully compatible with the extensive line of renowned Profoto light shaping tools

Profoto 3' RFi Octa Softbox

The Profoto RFi 3' Octa Softbox is an octagonal light-shaping tool that is ideally suited to groups, portraiture, fashion work, or any field that requires the unique wrap-around qualities of an 8-sided light source. This size makes it a good choice for location work and other work where lightness and compactness are of benefit. The RFi softboxes are compatible with more than 20 different flash brands through a wide range of speedring adapters. Note: Speedring is not included.

High-quality fabrics and reinforced seams, edges, and corners guarantee a long life time
Color-codes and touch-fastener attachments result in hassle-free assembly and disassembly
Soft grid is available as an optional accessory
Possible to use as a reflector by removing diffusers

Profoto OCF Softbox (1 x 3')

This 1 x 3' Profoto OCF Softbox is part of the Off Camera Flash accessory system intended for the B2 and B1 OCF flash heads. Light weight and speed are evident throughout its construction. The fixed front diffuser saves on setup time, as do the color-coded support rods that mount quickly to the separately-purchased, patent-pending speedring. This 1 x 3' strip softbox is ideal for use as a hairlight or rimlight on a stand or overhead on a boom. It also produces a long, elegant highlight in reflective objects in product or tabletop work. An optional fabric grid is available to narrow the softbox's beam and add directional control.

Benefits

  • Works exclusively with B2 and B1 flash heads and OCF speedring
  • Creates a soft and flattering light
  • Color-coded rods and fixed diffusers for fast and easy setup
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Made with premium-quality fabrics
  • Can be used with a Softgrid for even more precise light shaping
  • Profoto Collapsible Reflector - Silver/White - 33"

    The 33" silver and white Collapsible Reflector from Profoto provides the ability to bounce and shape sunlight and studio lights to place light where you need it and improve the overall light quality on a subject. The silver side of the reflector increases overall light output and contrast, while the white side provides softer, more natural fill. The reflectors feature two ergonomically shaped handles for comfort and better directional control. Sturdy fabrics and a strong, yet easily folded frame provide long-lasting durability.
