Digital Photo D2 review

The TTL function of the Profoto D2 simplifies photography significantly. In addition, the studio flash reloads extremely quick and so allows continuous shootings.

Resource Magazine Profoto Spot review

What Profoto Small Spot does, is allows you to hyper-control your lighting through the use of gobos. Allowing you to cut light like a samurai, and shape it like an expert in ceramics.

Zach Sutton, Resource Magazine
Sue Bryce on the B1

The B1 is extraordinary, and it has the ability to dial down to low, soft light with big modifiers so I can create the exact same daylight I have been working with for the last 27 years. I can shoot at any time of the day and still control the light.

Sue Bryce, photographer
Dave Gold on the D2

The most important feature of the Profoto D2 besides the speed is the constant color temperature and light intensity, regardless of the used power.

Dave Gold, Photographer
Serge Illin on the D2

D2 Monolights give me ready-to-go pictures, so I can shoot more and retouch less.

Serge Illin, Photographer
Alexis Cuarezma on the D2

The D2’s are absolutely great lights. I love their size, the amount of power they pack and their nice short flash duration.

Alexis Cuarezema, photographer
Simon Derviller on the Pro-10

When the Pro-10 is firing at high speed, it’s like being in a thunderstorm. The sound of the flash is so crisp, you know when you return to your screen you’re going to have something that’s pretty damn stunning.

Simon Derviller, photographer
Roberto Garver on the Pro-10

The Pro-10 allows me to shoot with a higher power with very short flash duration, and that allows me to set the aperture freely.

Roberto Garver, photographer
Makoto Horiuchi on the Pro-10

I would like to shoot images no one has ever imagined before.

Makoto Horiuchi, photographer, Shooting Magazine, on the Pro-10
Rafa Fierres on the D2

The Profoto D2 has shown me that it's the fastest monolight with TTL, and more than that, reliable too.

Rafa Fierres, photographer
ProPhoto Profoto D2 review

You really don’t appreciate just what a difference having TTL exposure control makes until you use it… and then you won’t want to be without it.

Paul Burrows, ProPhoto, on the D2
Resource Magazine Profoto D2 review

Am I blown away by the capabilities of the Profoto D2? Yes, absolutely.

Zach Sutton, Resource Magazine

Dayron Vera on the D2

The D2 interface is really intuitive and super easy to use.

Dayron Vera, photographer
Edu López on the D2

I prefer to devote my attention to the angles, the distance and light shaping than measure the light every time I adjust the focus. That’s what I love about the D2 and TTL.

Edu López, photographer, Estudio Lumina
Zengkai Fu on the D2

After I've tested the D2, I found I set my expectations too low. It outperforms in every feature. It's incredible.

Zengkai Fu, photographer
Haiyin Lin on the D2

As a fashion photographer, I'm often asked to capture models in running or jumping motions. The D2’s recycling time of 20 flashes per second enables me to capture every dynamic moment with ease.
