    Profoto 1200 AirS LiFe Reviews

    Pro-B3 1200 AirS Power Pack is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from for real professional photographer I'm going to graduate art school as photography major and I have few years experience of assistance in commercial studio. this is what you want. my school has all broncolor product so I used it a lot of time. I don't have any complain with broncolor so I'll compare with these two major company. first it is really well made. it covered by rubber and everything is feel really tight. but heavier than broncolor a2l mobile pack. the broncolor a2l you don't really feel it is well made. it works good but pro b3 looks more durable. second light quality is excellent. really accurate and you can even control really small amount of light. I test with light meter and the light came out always same accurate. third battery life is pretty good. I didn't test the battery what profoto said. but I shot on really hot day almost over 90 for 3 hours. battery still more than 60%. I'd buy spare battery for just in case, but battery life is long enough. overall, it does not have any negative things. only thing is not function, it is manufacture problem. I got two times exchange because defected product. one times is battery indicator problem and other time is test button problem. b&h did excellent customer service, so I'm happy now. but profoto should care more about their quality of manufacture.
