Profoto 901310 Overview

  • 1Description

With the Profoto Connect Wireless Transmitter for Canon cameras, you have a wireless connection with AirTTL lights that controls flash sync, remote control, Auto TTL, and HSS. The transmitter also controls flash sync and remote control in Air lights. There are three settings on the Connect transmitter itself. Auto being the first, takes all the guess work of setting up your flashes. The manual setting is there if you want to set the flashes yourself and be more creative. The final setting, of course, is to turn it off when the transmitter is not in use.

By downloading the Profoto app and with Bluetooth connection, you can control your lights wirelessly as well and upgrade your firmware later through the app. The Connect works on a frequency of 2.4 GHz and up to eight channels with an operating range of a 1000' when using it with normal sync flash and remote control, and 330' with Auto TTL and HSS. The built-in lithium-ion polymer battery has a battery life of 30 hours and is rechargeable via the included USB cable. Additionally, the transmitter powers off after 60 minutes of inactivity.

    Profoto 901310 Reviews

    Connect Wireless Transmitter for Canon is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from May be ok when the app gets updated I got this to use with two B10 and two A1 lights.  It may be fine for people who always use full auto but at this time  the app does not support groups of flash.  All the A1 adjust the same amount for every adjustment.   The B10 can be adjusted independently through the app. To adjust the A1s independently you need to walk over to the lights and adjust them. Profoto promises the groups will be available in an upcoming app update but is not available now.  Be aware that even when that is available you do not control the groups from the transmitter but rather from an app on a phone that connects to the transmitter.  This is also not convenient for working on a shoot as it adds an extra device and layer of complexity. I feel they would have been better to build a transmitter that adjusts the lights directly.  This does not seem to be aimed at the professional market but rather for people who want better quality point and shoot lighting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Profoto Connect I found this item to be very useful when you need to get your off camera flash set up in a hurry, its turn to auto turnon flash and your ready to go and get the shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont buy it for manual use. GREAT FOR AUTO! Kinda wish I spent the extra $100 to get the trigger with controls. But once you start using this for the AUTO function.

    What can this do that the AirTTL can't do?

    What can this do that the AirTTL can't do?
    Asked by: Arthur
    This remote is designed for simplicity. No buttons or settings to fiddle with. Only one group to control automatically. The AirTTL is more capable and full featured.

    Besides changing flash settings using your phone, can you also use your phone as a shutter remote? Or do you have to push the shutter button on your camera?
    Asked by: Sara
    This will not be a shutter remote, but you could get a third party shutter release if you wanted.

    Curious where this fits in if you already have the Profoto Air remote?
    Asked by: greg
    This would be an either or. If you have the Air remote you probably would not need one of these remotes. This is designed for worry free nothing to adjust simplicity.

    If I only want to use this in Auto, do I still need an iphone 7 or greater? Can I update the connect w/o the iphone App?
    Asked by: rhonda
    Yes and Yes. Auto mode talks between your camera and your lights and sets the lights to a setting that it thinks is best. No phone app required. And firmware updates happen through a small port on the device that goes to usb on your computer. Updates can be downloaded at profoto downloads pages.

    Light output can be set individually for each light or it works just in a single group?
    Asked by: David
    from what I see is the light can be controlled by the app and set for specific functions but the auto is just that auto like if you had a flash connected on top.
