Profoto D1 Air 1000W/s Monolight
Key Features
  • 7 Stop Power Range
  • 100-240V
  • 2.0 Sec. Recycling Max. Power @120V
  • 300 Watt Modeling Light
The D1 Air 1000W/s Monolight is a significant refinement of the ComPact monolight series from the company which having become synonymous with professional strobe lighting, is now celebrating its 40th anniversary.

No stone has been left unturned in the provision of tech and convenience features that seem to derive from professional photographers' wish lists. The sleek matte-black, high-impact polycarbonate finish encases strobe design that goes beyond the highly visible LED readout and is digital from the ground up. The 7 stop power range breaks down to 1/10 stop increments providing flexibility, precision and consistency, made possible by dual mode SMPS capacitor charging.

A new built-in 77 degree reflector (5.12" diameter) maximizes case space and is ideal for umbrella and softbox use. Features that we've come to expect from Profoto over the years: short flash duration, rapid recycling, a bright 300W modeling lamp and heavy-duty cabling are all on-board.

Profoto Air System technology replaces the sync cord, allowing the head to be remotely triggered from as much as 300 meters (1000 feet) away using a Profoto Air Remote or Air Sync transceiver (sold separately). The Air Sync provides wireless triggering (8 channels) via hot shoe or mini plug, while the Air Remote provides wireless triggering as well as full-function head control over 8 channels in 6 distinct groups. Additionally, the D1 Air's syncing and complete functionality can be wirelessly controlled via your PC or Mac by using Profoto's optional Air USB with the included Studio software.

Additionally, the D1 Air's syncing and complete functionality can be wirelessly controlled via your PC or Mac by using Profoto's optional Air USB with the included Studio software.

Modeling lamp operation is user-selectable: On/Off/Proportional and Free (manual). There is also a selectable flash confirmation (dimming) feature in addition to an audible, fully-recycled tone. The D1 is compatible with the full line of widely-acclaimed Profoto light-shaping tools, as well as the capable Profoto Camera and Profoto Control apps for Android and iOS devices. Finally, the self-sensing multi-voltage circuitry allows you to take the D1 anywhere in the world.  

High-visibility LED readout with 7 stop range in precise 1/10th stop increments
Rapid recycling (0.2 - 2.0 sec @ 120V, 0.2 - 2.0 sec. @ 230V) insures that fleeting gestures and defining moments are caught, not lost
The 300W modeling lamp meets the challenge posed by a high ambient light level on set provides easy pre-visualization of the final shot
Air System technology makes the sync cord obsolete, allowing remote triggering of your D1 from as much as 1,000' (300 m) away. Alternately, the D1 Air's syncing and complete functionality can be wirelessly controlled via your PC or Mac by using Profoto's optional Air USB and the included Studio software
Lightweight design with durable polycarbonate shell and built-in 77 degree umbrella reflector
Self-sensing multi-voltage capability allows you to take the renowned Profoto quality of light anywhere in the world
Super-short flash duration (1/700 - 1/1,800 Sec. t0.5) provides crisp, action-stopping images, and is especially valuable for dance, sports and other highly kinetic subjects
Connect the D1 to the optional Profoto Air USB for PC and Mac for full control of your entire studio flash system via wireless communication
Highly consistent shot-to-shot performance within a +/- 0.05 stop range via dual-mode SMPS capacitor technology
Safety features include auto-diagnostic start-up circuitry, DDP (Deep Discharge Protection), pulse-charging capacitor circuitry temperature control and overload protection
Fully compatible with the extensive line of renowned Profoto light shaping tools

Can i control power levels on this unit with Profoto AirTtl?
Asked by: David
The Profoto AirTTL controller can be used for manual control of the D1. It cannot give you TTL or HSS.

question

Would you recommend Profoto D1 Air 1000 over a Profoto Pro-10 for a daily fashion ecommerce studio? What's the difference in performance/ durability?
Asked by: Clarita P.
The main difference is the amount of control that you would have. A D1 would give you only 7 stops of control while the Pro 10 pack would allow for 11 stops of control, as well as TTL communication with Nikon, Canon, or Sony cameras. The right choice comes down to how much control you need. Otherwise, both systems are durable, with the D1 being a more compact solution.

question

I take it there is no firmware or other upgrade/ modification available to allow the D1 to shoot HSS, correct? (I realize the D2 has that capability, but I own D1's.)
Asked by: Terence
The D1's were made about 6 years before TTL was developed for the B1. The D1 doesn't have the necessary guts to make it shoot HSS.

question

I like the price of this in the kit form over the b1 kit plus it also comes with stands and the remote also has both lights at 1000 ws over 500 on the b1. However I am unsure on what battery pack I could use to power these on location. Any ideas for good battery packs that would power these both at full power for at least a couple hundred shots?
Asked by: Jacob
The obvious choice is the Profoto BatPack. (Link below) Buy the best and you only cry once. <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=728121&gclid=CPez_P2Mxs0CFQxZhgod6NADMg&is=REG&ap=y&m=Y&c3api=1876%2C91439130122%2C&A=details&Q= target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=728121&gclid=CPez_P2Mxs0CFQxZhgod6NADMg&is=REG&ap=y&m=Y&c3api=1876%2C91439130122%2C&A=details&Q=</a>Other than that, I just use a small Honda gas genie.

question

Do I need an attachment for a softbox for the d1 air?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, you'll need a speed ring to attach a standard softbox to your D1 (or any other Profoto light). See the link below for details:http://bhpho.to/1g3aNlu
