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.

Do I need to buy 2 of these? One to recieve on the flash and one to trigger from the camera?
Asked by: karina
Two of the Air Remote Transceivers if you are using a flash that is not part of the Profoto Air system. In that case, one unit would be the transmitter on the camera while the other would be the receiver on the flash.

Will this work on Profoto B1x to put in sleep mode and wake the light up on channels D, E & F? The remote that comes with the lights only allows this type of operation on groups A B & C. We rig our lights up in air and can't activate sleep mode and wake up in the non TTL groups D E F or G. Looking for solution

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: Kenneth
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.
