Profoto C1 Plus | Hands-on Review


The new C1 Plus from Profoto is a high-quality, handheld flash and continuous light unit that syncs perfectly with your smartphone. We took it out for a test run in the streets of New York City to see how this light performs. We also take a quick look at the Profoto C1. Both models work with your smartphone and are great for photographers and content creators looking for easy-to-use portable lighting solutions.

Question - love the concept, but does it work/sync with cameras other than smartphones?

The Profoto C1 is only compatible for use with smartphones as you must use the Profoto app to trigger the strobe.  The Profoto C1 Plus can work with both smartphones and regulars cameras which have a hot shoe by triggering the unit with any Profoto AirTTL Remote (depending on the brand of your camera) connected to the hot shoe of your camera.
