Unleash your creativity on location

Imagine taking the best of a speedlight and the best of a studio light and bringing those elements together in one new breed of flash. We did just that to create the Profoto range of off-camera flashes. Powerful and with naturally beautiful light, cordless battery power, and TTL integration with most popular camera brands makes them the perfect creative tools for shaping light on location. Especially in combination with the tailor made OCF Light Shaping Tools that are designed for mobility and ease of use.

Choose between the B10 and the B10 Plus – both big lights in small packages, the B1X – an on-location icon, and the B2 – a lightweight pack and head option for photographers on the move.

Follow our short guide below to find the right off-camera flash for your need.

Guide

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.

Guide

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.

Guide

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.

Guide

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.

Guide

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.
