• Upgrade your  Profoto Off-Camera Flash with HSS for AirTTL and B1

THE PROFOTO B1. NOW WITH HSS.

The B1 makes it easy to take flash off your camera, take control and shape light. With TTL you set the light in a flash. With battery power and without any cords, you can take the B1 with you wherever you go and light whatever you want. Add to that the power, speed and light shaping possibilities that Profoto lights are known for.

With the release of Profoto HSS, the possibilities grow even greater. Download the free HSS firmware upgrade today and start shooting with superfast shutter speeds. Get that perfect deep blue sky even when shooting with large apertures. Capture super crisp action shots without motion blur caused by the ambient light. It is all just a few clicks away!

OFF-CAMERA FLASH

There are many flashes out there that can be placed off-camera. But there is only one B1 off-camera flash. No other flash will make it as easy to take the flash off your camera, while at the same time providing you with such creative freedom.

WITH TTL

Nikon shooters attach the Air Remote TTL-N to their camera’s hotshoe, Canon shooters to their Air Remote TTL-C. Then point and shoot, and the B1 will automatically adjust its light output to provide you with the perfect exposure.

WITHOUT CORDS

The B1 is powered by an exchangeable, high-capacity battery that is integrated with the flash. Combine that with an Air Remote TTL and experience the freedom that comes with shooting without power cables or sync cords.

WITH POWER

Ten times as powerful as the average speedlight, the B1 enables you to overpower the sun on a sunny day as well as light up larger backgrounds and areas. Having that much power also allows you to add Light Shaping Tools to create a beautiful, soft light even in bright conditions.

If that is not enough, switch to High-Speed Sync (HSS) Mode and get that perfect deep blue sky even when shooting with large apertures.

WITH SPEED

At lower power settings the B1 will blast away up to twenty flashes per second. But speed also equals short flash duration. In other words, the B1 will provide a much shorter flash duration than a speedlight set to the same output.

Also note that the B1 has High-Speed Sync (HSS) functionality, allowing you to capture super crisp action shots without motion blur in broad daylight.

WITH LIGHT SHAPING

Choose from more than 120 Light Shaping Tools and shape the B1’s already beautiful light into almost any light you can imagine. Explore Profoto’s unique Zoom Function and make fine-tune adjustments by simply sliding the tool back and forth on the B1.
