  • 1Description

The Profoto Acute2R 2400 Generator is the standard of rental studios worldwide. Profoto offers action-stopping short flash duration and fast recycling times for any type of application.

Heavy-duty design, dual voltage capability, consistency of light output and color temperature, and compatibility with Profoto's full line of modular light shaping tools, make this power pack the first choice of professional photographers around the world.

The new Acute 2R 2400 w/s mutli-voltage power supply can withstand the rigors of frequent transport and travel. This new power pack is based on the Profoto Acute 2 2400 and is identical in every way with the addition of a PocketWizard Brand Digital Radio Slave built in, to give the photographer freedom from long sync cords.

Wireless Freedom
Features a built-in PocketWizard Brand Radio Slave
Attach an optional PocketWizard transmitter to the camera, and trigger the pack from up to 300' away.
Easy Channel Selection
Simply turn the power supply on and the system is put into "Learn" Mode. The first signal it receives, it remembers. To reset, turn the power supply off, then on again. Then send a new channel, which will be locked in until the power supply is turned off.

Asymmetrical or Symmetrical Distribution
The power level chosen can be symmetrically or asymmetrically distributed among 1, 2, or 3 flash heads.

    Profoto 2400 reviews

    Acute2R 2400 Generator is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product-- Too much power? This product just delivers. Tons and tons of power. And that may be my only knock against it. There's TOO much power here for most indoor applications. Limited by 1/250 shutter, Indoors I don't believe I've shot with a setting above 1/64 power to the heads. It's THAT powerful. You wind up having to close down a lot, which limits your depth of field. For practical application, I'd seriously consider the 1200, unless you're doing a lot of outdoor/sunlight shooting. Machining, fit, and finish are Profoto grade standards. This means, well, it's perfect.
