Profoto knows when it's got a good thing but rather than rest on its laurels and enjoy the ride, they continue to tweak and enhance the product as they have done previously with the B1/B1X and the D1/D2. Such is the case with the augmented B10 Plus OCF Flash Head, which at 500Ws offers double the power of its predecessor.

Like the B10, the B10 Plus is part of the OCF (Off Camera Flash) family and in a move that's consistent with their ongoing "techno-logic", Profoto packs all the features of its forerunner (and then some) into the B10 Plus.

The 500Ws light has a 10-stop variable power range and swift recycle times of 0.05 to 2.5 seconds. Freeze Mode, which prioritizes flash duration yields a very short 1/50,000 second at minimum power. The B10 Plus is powered by a lithium-ion battery that gives you 200 full-power flashes on a 90-minute charge, while 60 minutes will top up the battery to 80% if you're short on time. Of course, the B10 Plus retains 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 eight channels and three 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 Plus in manual mode at distances up to 1000 feet and in TTL mode up to 330 feet - the approximate length of a football field. The B10 Plus and the Air Remote TTL also support High Speed Sync with shutter speeds as quick as 1/8000 second to give the photographer complete control of background illumination or to allow use of wide apertures for creative work. There's also a Profoto Control and Profoto Camera app that allows you to capture well-lit images wirelessly with your phone.

Besides this multitude of features, the B10 Plus 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.

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

Exciting Future-Proof Technology Turns Your Smartphone into Pro Camera

Profoto B10 and Profoto Camera app (iOS)
Profoto's ground-breaking "AirX" technology is a free upgrade that brings professional flashes to smartphones. It allows you to use of full flash power of your B10 or B10 Plus when shooting with your iPhone. While a previous app allowed control of the flash head, the updated Profoto Camera iOS app and firmware literally turns your smartphone into a professional camera. The beauty is that your Profoto gear will evolve right along with the inevitable visual tech improvements in phone technology no matter what device you use, making it future proof.

The Camera app syncs your iPhone with the Profoto B10 or B10 Plus over Bluetooth connection - no additional hardware attachments needed. The App enables you to precisely control B10's Xenon flash tube power, its LED modelling light, and also control all other standard camera settings: shutter speed, ISO sensitivity and white balance in 1/3 EV steps. You can take photos in different image formats: HEIF, JPG or RAW. It even has a self-timer! Instead of sending an approximation of a shot to a colleague or client, email or text an actual professionally lit image.

The Profoto Camera app is currently available for iPhone (see Compatibility) and is available at no cost at the Apple App Store (link to upgrade your Profoto B10 or B10 Plus. Necessary flash firmware update is done seamlessly within the app and all new B10/B10 Plus units will already have the latest firmware installed.

iOS Compatibility

  • iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 iPhone, 8 Plus iPhone X
  • iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro
  • Max Requires iOS 11 or newer
  • B10 Plus vs the B10

    The three key differences between the B10 and the B10 Plus are flash power, size, and weight. They also share the same accessories but the bag size in the single head kits are made appropriate to their individual sizes

    Profoto B10 Plus Reviews

    amazing light if it doesn't need repaired

    By Roy
    Rated 3 out of 5
    Date: 2022-07-27

    I am a full time editorial/commercial photographer and wanted these lights for their light weight and ease of use on locations. The great thing about these lights is that they shoot beautifully, are easily controlled from the phone app and the modifiers designed for them work beautifully. When purchasing my second b10 plus head, I purchased a demo unit from B&H here for a couple of hundred dollars off the new price. While on location, for a magazine shoot last week, the head stopped firing. The power was on, the model light worked but the actual flash would not fire. Now here is the problem with this particular profoto head. Unlike, every head I have in my studio, you CAN NOT change the flash tube yourself. I sent the head into profoto to get repaired and they told me that the tube needed changed along with the front unit. I expected the tube to need replaced because everything worked except the flash, but the front unit they said needed replaced was nearly 400.00 dollars also, taking my repair total to over 650.00!!! They said the front unit has to be taken off to get to the tube. This is ridiculous for a light that had no issues at all and was never damaged.Flash tubes are one of those things that I keep a bunch of for replacing in all of my other heads because tubes need replaced every now and then. I was expecting 175.00 or less for this but over 600 is crazy. Also after giving therm the ok to fix the light, they then tell me that they don't even have the front unit and it will be weeks before the parts come in. Im a working photographer and need these lights back quickly. Every time I sent something to canon, hassleblad, etc. It was a speedy fix and the item was returned quickly. This is nearly a month turnaround. I really love the heads themselves but absolutely would not buy another b10 series head, knowing that I have to go through this is even the tube blows. If it wasn't for this I'd say it was an amazing head but tubes will blow and you have to send it out to fix it. Crazy

    Absolutely love this light! The form factor is a huge perk outside of the power it can give. Small enough to where my travel bag (Streetwalker on wheels) has the following: 2 B10 , 2 B10, 2 ocf zoom reflectors, 1 ocf beauty dish, ocf speedring, R3, R5, RF 28-70 f/2 , RF 70-200 2.8, RF 50 1.2, and multiple batteries for all pieces of gear. There's honestly (imo) not a better travel light with the power/quality/portability it can provide. I also utilize the led lamp mode for video shoots.

    Upgrade from the B10

    Been using a B1 and a B10 for a few years - love their reliability. This one falls in between for portability. So far, so good.

    Best Location Light.

    Outdoors or travel I love this strobe. The best and easiest light to use. Used it with the Profoto trigger and as a slave with a Broncolor strobe, That it also has a continuous light is an added bonus I also love. Great product.

    The ease of use, build quality and features are second to none. I bought this on black Friday and it was still hyper expensive. Fantastic flash

    B10 plus is significant upgraded for B1x lighter, same power, bluetooth, and AC connection that B1x missed features.

    Great addition to my Profoto system.

    Added this to my Profoto B10X Plus for a total of 1000 W/s of light in a fairly small and portable kit. This is a Bluetooth light and can be controlled using your Smart Phone with the Profoto App. It also works with the new Profoto Connect Pro transmitter for control at camera. After updating the firmware of this purchase I cannot figure out what the difference is between the B10 Plus and B10X Plus ... I'm sure there is a difference, but it apparently is irrelevant to my applications. (Note: these lights are not intended for use with large, direct mount modifiers like a 5' RFI Octabox or other large HD boxes. I use them with Umbrellas and the smaller mods designed for OCF. IMO, for heavy duty portable applications I use B1s or B1Xs ... or D1s or D2s in studio.

    Beyond Expectations!

    Can't believe the power, output quality, easy of use and dependability of this flash. I should have purchased this a long time ago! Used with the Profoto Connect, wow!

    Two questions... any way to power these from a continuous power source for studio use? Also just a profoto question, can you use some units in ttl and some in manual or do they all have to be one or the other? Thx!
    Asked by: Dan
    The included charger can also act as an AC adapter to power the light continuously in a pinch. You can set some lights in TTL and other in manual as needed.
