    How do you use color filter gels with this head? I see that the gels are offered as accessories, but I don't see how they are installed.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    With the included reflector for this head, you may add the Profoto Grid and Filter Holder for Profoto Zoom Reflector, B&H # PRGFHKZR, in order to hold the gels more securely. https://bhpho.to/2YkRClX

    question

    What diameter umbrella rod will fit this head?
    Asked by: Brian R.
    This head can accept umbrellas with a 7mm or 8mm shaft. Those umbrellas that do have an 8mm shaft would require a bit more force to insert it into this head.

    question

    Will these work with a higher watt model lamp? Like a 500w instead of the 250.
    Asked by: Matthew F.
    The description states that a 500 watt modeling light is available. I would double check this with B&H or a Profoto company repEither the other answer is wrong or the description needs to be changed Good luck !

    question

    What is the difference from the Acute D4 and the Acute 2-D4?
    Asked by: Kevin C.
    Kevin, I understand that older acute heads were called acute2, and with the new power packs they became acute 2 /d4. The tilt lock and flange are different on pro heads, the cables do not come off. The cable on the picture seems to be a head extension with male/female conections.
