Lee Morris of Fstoppers recently posted a video review of the Profoto D1 Air Monolight. He applauds the monolight’s newest feature, the Air Remote, saying, “This was huge for me because I shoot a lot of weddings. A lot of times I’ll have a light all the way up in the balcony firing up at the ceiling, and I want to be able to change this without walking over to the light myself or yelling at an assistant to change the light up or down.”

Another positive point for Morris was the D1’s simplicity. It’s intuitive features make it easy to use right out of the box and because it’s a monolight, Morris says, “The size factor is fantastic. I can throw it in a bag and the only thing I have to worry about is a power cord. That makes things really really simple and easy to travel with.”

He goes on to say the D1 is “the best monoblock I have personally ever used” and that it’s “the best I’ve found currently on the market.”

Thanks, Lee! See more reviews on Fstoppers and check out some of Lee’s photography here.

    I wonder why you don’t mention the built in reflector as an big issue of this monohead since you don’t get the light which you are used to get from all other Profoto heads with an exposed flash tube. I know there is an additional glass dome but it’s surely not quite the same.

    I would like Profoto to consider giving these monoheads the exposed tube as an major update.

    I´m agree with the issues. But the light is amazing, I never change Profoto for other brand

    Giving your readers information that they can use can actually help
    them, and if it does, it shows its true value. There are
    a ton of different promises that are made, but the reason that you will most likely never make that kind of money online with this one e-book, is that it is only a
    piece of information. The process of software development is incomplete without the
    application being tested by certified testers.
