    Profoto 600 AirS LiFe reviews

    AcuteB2 600Ws AirS LiFe Power Pack is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had TWO! This power pack is great! Combined with the strobe head it's perfect. For years I've been working with the on-camera flashes trying to rig them so I could use them off camera but I was never happy with the quality of light or having them work consistently. The first time I used the Profoto system I was kicking myself for not get it sooner! It was great to have a great quality light, that fired every time. My advice is to get an extra battery, after about 300 fires the battery will be exhausted.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet little box of power This is a great portable supply of power! Coupled with the acute B strobe, I use this to overpower daylight (key-shift) while on-location with my wedding couples. With a 2x2 softbox, it almost has enough power to overpower the sun, but without the diffuser, no problem. I wish this was available in the USA as a kit. My gripe is that at this price, it should come with some sort of case. This thing is designed for portability so why not include a case?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't get any better! I am a commercial portrait and lifestyle photographer, and I also run a busy wedding studio.The Acute B2's are our go to lighint solution for outdoor portraits!My assistant wears the pack in a backpack, we put the head on a Shur-line painters pole with the kacey pole adapter, and voila, a totally mobile solution. It allows us to move quick and get great coverage in a short time!And because it's Profoto, you know it is going to work every time!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Profoto is always the best. Primarily used for location, but works equally as well in the studio. Light weight and portable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love how compact and powerful the AcuteB2 is. Changed the way I shoot formals and portraits at weddings. I only wish the power level could be controlled from the AirRemote.
