Profoto 1200 Air overview

  • 1Description

The Profoto D4 Air 1200Ws Power Pack (90-240VAC) is the latest in the Profoto line of finely designed and crafted sources of power. Compatible with all Acute and Acute 2 Heads*, and the Pro 7 Plus flash head.

This 1200Ws pack has outlets for 4 heads, each of which can be controlled separately. It has a built-in radio receiver which offers comfortable radio remote and reliable radio synchronization using the Profoto Air Remote or Profoto Air Sync transceivers (available separately) up to 984' (300 m)  away. It has precise digital readout of each light channel's selected output. Digital photographers will appreciate the 8 f-stop power range for creating subtle lighting effects. Another enhancement is this pack's ability to fire the flash directly from a computer via the pack's USB port.

Sports and theatrical production photographers can make good use of extremely short (1/7500s to 1/1000s) flash durations and recycling times (0.07 to 1.2 seconds).

*Note: With 90-120 Voltage: Do not use older Pro-3, Pro-5, Pro-6, PF, PB, or Pro-7 heads. The fans in these heads will operate at a slower speed, which may result in overheating.

Note: With 200-240 Voltage: Do not mix the use of Acute/D4 heads with ProHeads. Change the pack's default setting to "Acu" in order to achieve maximum modeling light intensity.

Built-In Remote Control
The D4 1200 Air offers comfortable radio remote and reliable radio synchronization via the small and handy Profoto Air Remote or Profoto Air Sync transceivers (Air Sync - synchronization only). Profoto's Studio software makes it possible, in combination with the optional Profoto Air USB transceiver, to control, save and recall all settings wirelessly by a Mac or PC. Profoto Air transceivers have a working range of up to 984' (300m) and extremely short delay. This allows the use of this radio sync with the shortest sync times of actual cameras (down to 1/1600s). The Air system works on 2.4GHz frequency for international use.
