Profoto D2

With the ability to freeze action at up to 1/63,000 of a second, shoot bursts of 20 images per second and sync with camera shutter speeds as fast as 1/8,000 of a second, the D2 is redefining the definition of speed in monolights.

This is the new D2

A photographer faces many different challenges every day. It’s with that in mind that we created the Profoto D2. It’s a breakthrough, because it’s the world’s fastest monolight with TTL. So for the first time, no matter what the assignment, speed is always on your side.

So whether you’re shooting sports, food or fashion, with the D2 you’re always up to speed.

Always up to speed

For the great photographer, challenges are there to be conquered. And for them, speed is more than the ability to freeze a moment of action or match the fastest camera shutter. It’s about setting creativity free.

A week in a photographer's life

Every new day is a new challenge for a photographer. Will it be a portrait, sports, fashion or something else completely? And no matter what that day brings, it must always end the same way – with a great shot.

Dealing with these pressures takes experience, talent and speed. Follow photographer Andreas Lundberg during his one week experience with the D2.

Six reasons to choose the Profoto D2

Freeze the moment

The D2 can provide super quick flash durations up to 1/63,000 of a second. Shoot a splash of water and it will be frozen in mid-air – a photographic work of art.

Catch the moment

The D2 can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. That's fast enough to catch the best of any moment. Ask your subject to jump and you'll have 20 mid-air exposures to choose from.

Control your surroundings

Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to shoot with shutter speeds up to 1/8,000 of a second. Use HSS to shoot with large aperture in bright conditions or to freeze action with absolute sharpness.

Shoot with ease using TTL

Point-and-shoot in TTL Mode. Switch to Manual Mode and control the light with intuitive buttons and menus. Forget about the flash and focus on the light.

Overpower any light

The D2 packs enough of punch to overpower the available light in almost any situation. Its power is also a blessing when shooting at larger distances or when using larger Light Shaping Tools.

Grow with speed

It has the speed to set you free, and the power for you to be at your best. It's an integrated part of the extensive Profoto system. Go full speed ahead with the D2.
