    question

    What is fast mode?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Fast Mode for this remote basically speeds up the signal as it is delivered to the Profoto flash head or pack. It is ideal for use with shooting in with faster shutter speed in your camera.

    question

    I know it will be manual only from my Panasonic, but does this control the B2 250 kit?
    Asked by: Mark
    Yes, you may use the Profoto Air Remote Transceiver to wirelessly trigger and control the Profoto B2 250 Air Kit. With the standard Air Remote, you will have flash sync and remote control of the B2 250 Kit. You would not have TTL or HSS capabilities.

    question

    I am trying to use this remote (901031) on a Sony A7r. Yes, it fits on the hotshoe, but the camera does not trigger the remote. Instead, I get 3 beeps from the remote before it shuts off. It works fine on the Canon and Fuji X-T1. Do I have the wrong remote for the Sony A7r? The manual does not say much about what 3-beeps means. thx
    Asked by: Ken
    I am using a Profoto Air Remote with my a7r. It has a model number of 901045. I think it only works with Sony alpha cameras.

    question

    Will the Air Remote be able to control the Head, Model and Energy functions on the AcuteB2 600 AirS generator?
    Asked by: peter
    While this remote can fire a AcuteB2 600 AirS Generator, it will not offer power control from the camera position. This feature is only available on units like the Profoto D4, Pro- 8 packs and the D1 monolights.
