Estudio Lumina is a Spanish commercial photography studio. They took it upon themselves to try out our new Profoto D2 Monolight. We’ve summarized what photographer Edu López had to say about the world’s fastest monolight with TTL.
You probably know by now that the Profoto D2 has incredible flash duration and recycling time. In his article, Edu López chooses a different angle, describing three additional features he believes are crucial to a successful shoot: TTL, HSS and modeling lights.
Brand and lifestyle photographer Matt Korinek is a busy bee. A while ago he put the Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flash and its High-Speed Sync functionality to the test. Now he’s back with a review of the Profoto B2.
After taking size, weight, set-up and performance into consideration, Matt put together a nice chart to compare the B1 and the B2 to conclude which flash is the most suitable for what kind of shooting.
When talking about the benefits of the B2, Matt is particularly enthusiastic about its portability.
“I love how lightweight it is,” he writes. “The Profoto B2 is a great piece of gear.”
Check out the full review on Matt’s blog.
Matt has also made a separate review of the OCF Light Shaping Tools.
In March portrait and wedding photographer Sal Cincotta tried out the portability of the B2 at the Great Wall of China. Now Sal and his friends at Shutter Magazine have recorded a video of their own, testing the Profoto B2 OFC System in the field.
Up-and-coming wedding photographers Michael Anthony from LA and Leonardo Volutro from Miami both set out to try the Profoto B2 and OCF Light Shaping Tools on location. An experienced B1 user, Michael had yet not tried the B2 and Leonardo had just made his first step from speedlights to shooting with an Off-Camera Flash system.
We’are not afraid to say that the B2 is a great tool. But don’t take our word for it. Listen instead to what some of the photographic industry’s most popular sites and magazines have to say. Below is a list of reviews from all over the world and this is what they think:
