The world’s fastest flash

Speed to exceed

Occasionally, something comes along that changes everything, opening new doors to creative possibilities that were previously, quite simply out of reach. Introducing the Profoto Pro-10 – The world’s fastest flash. Welcome to the speed to exceed.

The perfect fusion of speed and power

To say the Profoto Pro-10 is fast is an understatement, with a breathtaking flash duration of up to 1/80,000 of a second.

But what really sets the Pro-10 apart is that it’s the perfect fusion of speed and power – 2400Ws of power to be exact. The light output it generates is truly enormous and it provides a shorter flash duration than any other flash across the entire power range.

This dramatically increases the scale of what you can shoot and freeze, everything from a water splash to a waterfall are perfectly frozen in time.

Recycling time is equally impressive. The Pro-10 can easily match the fastest cameras even when the light output is set high, making it easier to capture the perfect moment by shooting in bursts.

Combine all of that with TTL and Profoto’s patented High Speed Sync (HSS) technology, and you have a flash that is capable of handling any and all lighting challenges.

Ultimately the Profoto Pro-10 is so much more than the world’s fastest studio flash – it’s your imagination set free. It’s the speed to exceed.

  • 1/80,000s flash duration

  • 2.4-2400Ws power range

  • 0.02-0.7s recycling

  • AirTTL with HSS

Inside the making of the image

Get a glimpse into what it takes to create an amazing image. Watch Iain Crawford put the Profoto Pro-10 through its paces.

Iain Crawford

Iain Crawford is known for his stunning high-speed beauty photography. He has a knack for capturing the emotion in the moment and finding the graphical symmetry of controlled chaos as it surrounds and interacts with human form, especially working with water, paints and powders. He is highly experienced in high-speed photography and its technical challenges, having developed many unique techniques to set up and capture his striking imagery.

To capture his images, Iain takes the creative concept and develops inventive technical solutions to deliver the perfect result. High flash durations are an integral part of this process. This made him the perfect partner for this project, and a real authority when it came to exploring the capabilities of the Profoto Pro-10. Together, they created a unique creative concept brought into reality with Iain’s vision and the extraordinary flash durations and power of the Pro-10.


“Having the confidence to know you can freeze anything pin sharp at the power you want opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities.”

Iain Crawford, photographer, about the Pro-10

8 reasons to choose the Pro-10

Speed & power

It’s the perfect marriage. You can freeze faster with up to 200% shorter flash duration at any given light output, and freeze a bigger image, benefiting from 2 f-stops more light output at any given flash duration. Add to that the ability to shoot faster with significantly faster recycling than anything else out there and you have a machine that always guarantees more and sharper images to choose from.

Simplicity & control

As you’d expect from Profoto the Pro-10 is simple and intuitive to use. A sleek minimal design features three large rubberized dials and a huge hi-resolution display, so it’s easy to see, feel and hear every change in the flash settings. As a result the photographer’s attention is exactly where it should be – focused on creating a great image.

Versatility & light shaping

The speed, power and control of the Pro-10 can be combined with 11 different heads, from classic ProHeads to special application heads created for specific setups. All of this combined with more than 120 Light Shaping Tools that are globally accessible for rental makes the Pro-10 the most versatile generator for creative light shaping currently available.

Performance & reliability

The fact that the Profoto Studio Generators are available at 80% of the world’s rental studios is a testament to their uncompromising engineering and craftsmanship. But with the Pro-10, Profoto upped the ante considerably. During development it was heated, beaten and stressed like never before. So to use a highly technical term – this generator is built like a tank. The Pro-10 will also keep getting better with age with upgrades easily downloaded and installed from profoto.com. So that combined with category leading durability and this flash will still be enabling the world’s best photographers to unleash their creativity in 20 years time.


Experience the Pro-10

“This studio generator uses our 48 years of expertise to deliver the speed and power to break new ground in photography. It’s our flagship product, it’s a beast, but a beautiful one.”
