What's the difference between the Profoto B10, B10 Plus, B1X and B2?
Why choose the B10?
The B10 is a perfect fit for many on location shoots. The size and shape of a medium sized camera lens makes it easy to bring in any camera bag, and with a flash that is five times more powerful than a speedlight it is easy to create and shape light in almost any location. In addition, the B10 is more than a flash, it is also a powerful continuous light with capability to light both stills and videos. The B10 connects with the Profoto App for smartphone capture, remote control and easy updates.
Why choose the B10 Plus?
The B10 Plus is the ever so slightly bigger sibling to the B10. Slightly longer but still similar in size as a large camera lens making it easy to bring in any camera bag. The flash of the B10 Plus is twice as powerful compared to the B10 and the extra power makes it even easier to shape light and overpower the sun in any location. B10 Plus video light capabilities and connectivity with the Profoto App are equal to the B10.
Why choose the B1X?
The B1X is a proven professional workhorse and it is the best choice of flash for the toughest on location shoots. The robust housing can take a beating and while the power of the flash is comparable with the B10 Plus, the B1X is both faster and more enduring. The B1X battery also holds more shooting capacity in each charge. A large handle on the back and a big knob for the stand adapter makes the B1X easy to handle even when wearing gloves.
Why choose the B2?
The B2 is the only Profoto Off-Camera flash which has the battery pack separated from the heads. This resulting benefit is the small and lightweight heads that are easy to mount high on a boom or to hold by hand. With the B2 battery pack on your shoulder it’s easy to move around even if you are shooting without an assistant.
How much power do I need?
The 250Ws you get with the B10 or B2 is more than enough in most situations. However, the extra f-stop you get with 500Ws in the B10 Plus or B1X can sometimes be helpful. Especially if you are shooting in broad daylight and you want to use a large or diffusing light shaping tool, like an umbrella or a softbox.

The B10 Plus. Wow, it's compact - extremely small and light when I compare it with my B1X. And the reduced battery size is amazing, I can easily pack a few extra battery packs without sacrificing the lightness of my kit... that's so convenient.
If it’s small and light enough for us to make it work in the chaos of this environment, then we should be able to use it in the chaos of a wedding.
Using the Profoto B1X and the OCF Beauty Dish together puts you in total control of what you’re doing. You don’t have to go to fantastic locations to create magic. You just need to fill the frame with beauty.
It’s like a fat lens. It will fit in every camera bag I own.
The B10 gives us possibilities to experiment and play with light in all light conditions - even in harsh harsh light. And it is so easy.
With Profoto, I never feel like we are limited to the circumstances that we're shooting in. I feel like we can work in any type of environment, whether it is hard light, soft light; even in inclement weather. We're able to create images that are unique and different for every single client that we work with.
An excellent option for photographers who want something between a monolight and speedlights.
