Size matters

Because how much gear you have to carry — matters. How much space you have to set up and work in — matters. Having the freedom to seamlessly connect camera, app and light in the blink of an eye - matters. Being able to move fast, get in, get out and most of all, get the shot — matters. All that, and more inspired the Profoto B10 – a big light in a small package.

Why choose the Profoto B10

Big light in a small package

The B10 is similar in size to a medium camera lens. The light punches significantly above its weight delivering five times the power of a speedlight. Light that's natural and beautiful with a soft, gentle fall-off.

Unparalleled Connectivity

In addition to the range of Profoto AirTTL options for wireless trigger and control, the B10 series now has Profoto AirX technology inside. Providing the freedom to connect camera, app, and the B10 seamlessly and invisibly in the blink of an eye. And for the first time, that includes the camera within your smartphone thanks to a breakthrough in Bluetooth synchronization. As well as having all the functionality and control the app brings, you can now unleash the full power of flash and capture the image via your smartphone camera*.

True flexibility

You can shoot video with continuous light, and both brightness and color temperature are easily adjusted to blend with the ambient light. For convenience, you can just as easily mount the light on a camera tripod as on a light stand, and because the B10 is super lightweight, you can even use it handheld.

Lights you can grow with

With a dozen light-shaping tools in our compact and lightweight OCF family, and 120 more available from the full Profoto family, you can create and shape any kind of light with the B10 series. A range of Profoto AirTTL options for wireless trigger and control means they are compatible with any major camera brand, while the Profoto Control app lets you play with light and shadow to create amazing images with either light from your smartphone.

Designed to make life easy Profoto B10

The B10 and the quality of light it delivers brings an abundance of creative possibilities. But ease-of-use is also incredibly important. It features a clean and minimal interface, so you can start shooting straight from the box. Batteries are quick and easy to switch in and out and can be charged while in use. The B10 also features Profoto’s exclusive AirX technology, which gives you the freedom to seamlessly connects and synchronizes your flash with any camera whether it's the traditional kind or the one inside your smartphone, in the blink of an eye.

Trigger and control the flash wirelessly with ease from any Profoto Air remote, from Profoto Connect, or from a Profoto A-series flash. You can point and shoot with TTL or switch to manual control at any time. The Profoto Control app allows you to you easily view and control all B10 settings from the palm of your hand and install new updates in seconds.
