Earlier this week, we got a mail from fashion photographer Ujin Lee. The mail included images of something we honestly had not seen for a while: The Profoto Pro-1. Our very first generator.

The Pro-1 was released by Profoto in 1968. The generator that Ujin owns is not the first but the third edition of the Pro-1, released three years after the first one.  It does admittedly look a little weatherworn. However, it works like a charm, according to Ujin, who is just about to sell it on eBay, complete with heads and manual!

    I have been given one of these sets!, even includes the same case…
    Works fine but apparently not very controllable.
    Does anybody have a manual for this machine?
    Thanks in advance.
