    Profoto 1200 reviews

    Acute 2 - 1200 Power Supply is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up!! I first was a little overwhelmed with the instructions that came with it, but once I figured out the essentials the power pack worked flawlessly. Although there are times when it seems as if the power pack went to sleep mode and takes a few shots to wake it up? I am not sure if this is normal, but it doesn't bother me, yet. As long as those first shots aren't ones I will be needing at the end, then is fine with me. The knobs and controls feel strong and precise, I would love to know how this power pack performs with two or three lights. I image a little too much for the 1200 but who knows. I have not tried it yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality in a small size I love this pack. It's barely bigger than a lunchbox. The two downsides are these: The confusing system for adjusting power when you have more than one head attached. Also, while the whole pack is adjustable by 1/4 stops, the individual heads are independently adjustable by a stop. In all other regards the quality is excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great A fantastic investment. I use this for still life shoots and it can go all day without a hickup. One thing I would like to see is the ability to make fine tune adjustments to the power output. Overall this is a great pack that will last you years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another awesome Product from ProPhoto I have tried to save money by getting less expensive power packs and ringflash, but after a while I decided to sell them and get the Profoto. The Profoto Powerpack is extremely well built, compact, consistent and works great!
