Feel the freedom with our cordless Off-Camera Flashes

Imagine taking the best of a speedlight and the best of a monolight and bringing those elements together in one revolutionary new breed of flash. That’s what we did to create the Profoto range of off-camera flashes. Their cordless operation and revolutionary AirTTL technology allows you to shoot fully automatic in TTL mode and use High-Speed Sync (HSS) to shape light in broad daylight.

Experience the ease of shaping light on location when you have a powerful light in a compact size and dedicated OCF Light Shaping Tools that are designed for mobility and ease of use. Together, the benefits of the off-camera flashes and their accessories bring a whole new way of shooting that sets you, and your creativity free. Choose between the B1X – an on-location favorite among photographers worldwide and the smaller B2 – a super portable flash for photographers on the move.

Guide

Why choose the B1X?

Choose the B1X and you get a cordless, battery-powered monolight with TTL and HSS. The B1X is manageable 3 kg of reliable power and speed that gives you the freedom and flexibility to shoot anything, anywhere.

Guide

Why choose the B2?

Go for the B2 if you need to stay moving and be very mobile. The small and lightweight B2 with TTL and HSS, is easy to move or handhold, perfect to put around your shoulder if you shoot without an assistant.

Guide

How much power do I need?

The 250Ws of light you get with the B2 is more than enough in most situations. However, getting 500Ws with the B1X is a real bonus when you shoot in challenging sunny conditions.
