Profoto 701-080 overview

  • 1Description

This is the Profoto Pro 8a Air 2400 Watt/Second Power Pack. It was designed and built incorporating some of the suggestions of thousands of professional photographers and rental-house technicians. As with the Pro 7 Series (which will still be around), the Pro 8a is rugged, reliable and easy to use.

Main power controls for each head are top and center. Levels can be set in 0.1 stop increments with a flick of each knob, or in full stop increments by pushing down and turning each knob. Default readout is in stops, with "10" being full power. Readouts may be seen temporarily in Watt/Seconds with a push of a button. Secondary controls for the modeling light, radio slave, recycle speed and audible recycle tone are visible from the top, but controlled from the sides.

The truly impressive features of this 2400 watt/second power pack are found in its performance. The 8a Air has extremely short recycle times which allow it to fire up to 20 times a second (stroboscopic). Power and color fluctuations are not visible in the image to the human eye (±1/50 f/stop and ±40°K flash-to-flash, respectively). The power levels may be controlled from the optional Profoto Air transceiver and/or the optional USB transceiver, from your Mac or PC.
