Profoto C1 PLUS Overview

Designed to fit in the palm of your hand, the C1 Plus is a smartphone studio light that delivers beautiful light on the go and creates professional images with a simple click. Point-and-shoot with automatic exposure and flash power based on the surrounding conditions, and switch between natural and dramatic images with a swipe of your finger. For those who would like more control and freedom over power, exposure, and color temperature, the C1 may be used in manual mode.

The Profoto C1 Plus was built with a round shape that creates soft light falloff. Thanks to its wide range of colors, you'll be able to match a wide variety of lighting conditions, ranging from dusk to dawn. To help keep your images looking natural, built-in reflectors and a dome diffuser create organic shadows.

The Profoto C1 Plus is compatible with light-shaping tools such as color gels, grids, and domes, which provide a wide range of creative possibilities. The light-shaping tools snap on and off quickly with the C1 Plus' magnetic mount. Use it hand-held to easily play around and explore different angles by simply moving the C1 Plus around or put it on a stand or arm with the built-in thread mount. You can even use several lights together. Since C1 Plus is also compatible with Profoto AirTTL Remotes, you can bring it along if shooting with a classic camera.

The Profoto C1 Plus is compatible with the iPhone 7 and later. Its integrated 1500mAh lithium-ion polymer battery lasts for around 2000 full-power flashes or 40 minutes of continuous light at full power. Once depleted, it can be recharged in two hours using the included USB Type-C to Type-A cable.
