Building on the success and popularity of the A1X, Profoto introduces an enhanced version, the A10 AirTTL-N Studio Light for Nikon. The A10 has the same powerful battery that gets 450 full-power flashes instead of 350, fast full-power recycling time of one second, and 20 wireless channels. What's ground-breaking about the A10 is that you can sync it with your iPhone camera. The Profoto Control and Profoto Camera app sync your iPhone with the A10 over Bluetooth connection - no additional hardware attachments needed. The App enables you to precisely control the A10's 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. You can even download future firmware upgrades to the A10 through your smartphone.

The A10 was created for the professional photographer looking for portability and performance features or the ambitious non-professional who recognizes quality lighting but wants it comfortably and easily without the hassle of an overly technical interface. The A10 is easy to use. You can literally take it out of the box and start shooting. Weighing 1.2 lb including its battery, the A10's sleek matte black finish not only appeals to the eye but to the tactile sense as well.

The first thing you'll notice about the A10 is its 2.75" round, tilting, rotating head, which is the physical feature most responsible for the A1X's natural-looking light with its soft gradual fall-off. The auto-zoom built into the head handles focal lengths from 32 to 105mm, while an optional Wide Lens gives you wide-angle coverage from 14 to 24mm. You can override the auto-zoom function at any time and make your adjustments manually. A filter kit with graduated CTO conversion filters and a fluorescent filter is also separately available to modify the unit's daylight color temperature.

The A10 recycles in one second, faster than most flash units in its class and has action-stopping flash durations from 1/800 to 1/20,000 second. The A10 supports HSS (High-Speed Sync) allowing you to shoot at shutter speeds as short a 1/8000 second instead of 1/250 to blur a distracting background using a wide aperture while controlling strong ambient light behind your subject. The 76Ws head has an LED modeling light that can give you a preview of how the light is falling on your subject. It can be turned on or off, set to automatically adjust proportionally to the power level selected, or just switched to manual where it can be modified by hand. All adjustments are indicated on the exceptionally readable white on black LCD display.

The A10 is powered by an included lithium-ion battery that has a capacity of 450 full-power flashes (instead of the previous model's 350). Power is topped up on an exhausted battery in about 80 minutes with the included 100-240 VAC charger. The battery doesn't fade as its power is used, operating at peak performance until it's depleted. Purchase of an additional battery is recommended.

So far, we've been discussing the A10 used on-camera but when used off-camera, it really earns its name as a "Studio Light." The flash has a built-in transceiver that allows it to be used with other A10s, A1s, A1Xs, B2s, or D2, B1, B1X, and B10 monolights. All the Air Remote wireless controllers can trigger the A1X at distances up to 1000' and the Air Sync will give you simple wireless triggering, while the Air Remote will let you wirelessly adjust power, grouping, channel selection, and modeling light on/off. It's the Air Remote TTL that allows you to explore and control the A10's full capabilities. It wirelessly allows assignment of channels and groups as well as TTL and power level. In fact, the A10 has a switch that allows you to set your main light to TTL, switch to manual operation to adjust manual units in other groups to ratio their output, then switch back to TTL and return to the original TTL setting that was stored for you. The A10 also has +/-3 stops of exposure compensation that can be modified from the remote for your specific needs. The light also comes with a Bounce Card, Flash Stand, and a nylon bag with shoulder strap for storage and transport.

Advanced Technology Allows You to Sync B10 Flash with iPhone Camera

Profoto's ground-breaking "AirX" technology allows you to use of full flash power of your A10 when shooting with your iPhone. The Profoto Camera iOS app 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. You can even use your phone for future firmware updates. The Camera app syncs your iPhone with the A10 over Bluetooth connection - no additional hardware attachments needed. The App enables you to precisely control A10's 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 A10 is so easy to handle and produces soft, beautiful light, with this one small device. Highly recommend for the best balanced lighting...

    Great light, but those little wires....

    With Sony having a different hot shoe than other brands (longer) in order to accommodate the pin connectors at the front of the shoe the flash has tiny copper wires exposed at the front of the foot. Great as long as you are not using these in outdoor environments or in situations where you take the flash off and on a bit. The wires are very easily bent, pushed by the camera moving about.

    Fabulous light, fabulous price.

    It's a Profoto, you get what you pay for. Excellent quality of light. The build quality makes it feel like a professional piece of equipment.

    Very Disappointed; Want A Refund, Exchange, Warranty Service

    By Dirk

    I've been a full-time professional photographer for 25 years using Canon equipment. Until I bought this unit I had always used Canon flashes. The A10 worked fine for the first three times I used it. Then the head stopped firing in the middle of an event. I emailed ProFoto for warranty support but am not hearing back from them. I suppose a return for credit is out of the question, but that's what I would most like. Second choice would be an even swap for a new A10 unit. Warranty repair would be OK, but I'm not enthusiastic about a brand-new product that fails on its 3rd time out. Reliability is one of the factors that is most important to me. Even though the A10's features are impressive, and it appears durable, now I know I can't really count on this flash, and will be going back to Canon as my primary gear. I tried the iPhone feature. It's difficult to hold the iPhone and then take the photo by holding the flash unit. Need a better solution for this to really work well. I very rarely break my own rule of not using 3rd-party equipment, and this incident has reminded me why. Canon may not have the best flash unit, but they have the most reliable one. A product that carries the ProFoto name and costs $1,000 should be a five-star product. I'm very, very disappointed.

    Excellent flash

    Functions exactly as advertised. Seamless and simple operation with air remote trigger and A1X flash which I also own. Kinda pricey but worth it. If it lasts as long as advertised then is excellent bargain, just choose manual or TTL and shoot.

    Love this flash, hate the price.

    Would rate this 5 stars but deducting one star for the high price. I mean this flash is designed by Profoto but manufactured in Thailand. Whatever. Anyway, this flash is wonderfully easy to use and produces a beautiful light. I'm already heavily invested into Profoto products so bit the bullet. I already have the adapter (again purchased at an absolutely outrageous price) which allows the attachment of a myriad of Profoto modifiers. Attaching this to the OCF Magnum or Zoom reflector really boosts the power.

    I tried one of the others!

    I first tried a lower priced brand, not the cheapest one but below this level. That one was bad out of the box, I think it had a bad battery. I didn't keep it long enough to care. I think that one used lithium polymer, which is a far inferior technology compared to lifep04. That said, the quality difference in just how this one feels is confidence inspiring. I really didn't want to spend a lot on something that most of us, myself included, find as boring as a speedlight. I needed one for an event I was going to be shooting. I ended up not using it too much but I have used it a little bit since. Light output is really nice and strong even with gels attached and even outdoors close up. Very easy to use even for a novice like myself. I'm glad I returned the other brand for this one. Like everything else in life, you get what you pay for. Buy once cry once.

    Great!

    Will the Profoto A10 or A1x flash for Nikon work in TTL mode with a Canon transmitter on a Canon camera? The lamp is to be standing separately.
    Asked by: Maciej
    Unfortunately, no, you would not be able to trigger the Profoto A10 AirTTL-N Studio Light for Nikon or the Profoto A1X AirTTL-N Studio Light for Nikon off-camera using the Profoto Air Remote TTL-C for Canon in TTL automatic exposure mode. TTL automatic exposure would only be compatible when using the Profoto Air Remote TTL-N for Nikon with the above Nikon flashes.
