The TTL function of the Profoto D2 simplifies photography significantly. In addition, the studio flash reloads extremely quick and so allows continuous shootings.
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.
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.
The most important feature of the Profoto D2 besides the speed is the constant color temperature and light intensity, regardless of the used power.
D2 Monolights give me ready-to-go pictures, so I can shoot more and retouch less.
The D2’s are absolutely great lights. I love their size, the amount of power they pack and their nice short flash duration.
Profoto D2 has broadened my range of expression.
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.
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.
I would like to shoot images no one has ever imagined before.
Excited to see new expressions by professional photographers all over the world.
The Profoto D2 has shown me that it's the fastest monolight with TTL, and more than that, reliable too.
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.
Am I blown away by the capabilities of the Profoto D2? Yes, absolutely.
The recycling time is brutally fast.
The built-in possibilities and simplicity of the D2 are fascinating. It will most likely be a favourite among photographers that want a versatile flash.
Profoto D2 freezes movements at lighting speed.
The D2 interface is really intuitive and super easy to use.
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.
Far better specs even compared with the standard studio generators on the market.
Completely astonished by the versatility of the D2.
After I've tested the D2, I found I set my expectations too low. It outperforms in every feature. It's incredible.
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.
The new D2 is a clear indication of Profoto’s commitment to the product category: this is an entirely new animal inside and out.
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.
The Profoto D2's give me the speed I need. They never disappoint.
The B1 is absolutely essential to my workflow on all my jobs. I’m still blown away by the amount of power it packs through its portable batteries, and how well it can overpower the sun.
Once you try it, it changes everything.
The B1’s are the perfect fit for my needs when a speedlight won't suffice.
The Profoto B1 is truly a game-changer.

The new Profoto B2 has given us exactly what we've been looking for.
The OCF Beauty Dish has to be my new favorite item from Profoto. It’s a must-have on every shoot I’m on now.
The OCF Beauty Dish gives a three-dimentional beautiful appearance to the model.
A smart solution so you can forget about the cumbersome cutting and taping of filters.
I just love when my life gets easier.
An easy-to-use light shaper that is perfect for portraits. Its small size makes it very portable.
By cotrolling the color of the image with the OCF Gels, I could express the emotions more vividly.
The OCF Gels save me time so I can be more creative and take better images.
As a system, Profoto offers limitless possibilities.

What more could a photographer ask for than TTL communication between your camera and your monolight?
I really just want to give the design team a big high-five.
I can't recommend the RFi gear enough.
Reliable, consistent, and excellent.
In addition to being beautifully designed and constructed, it just looks plain cool!
