Profoto brightens the world of Leica with new Connect Pro21 June, 2022
Leica photographers have Profoto at the top of their list for quality flash lighting, but haven’t been able to access TTL and HSS. Until now. Through a new collaboration, the legendary camera maker can for the first time explore the full force of the Profoto system, adding industry leading lighting versatility to its palette of options.
When cameras are slimming down, their usefulness is expanding. Today, the world’s most influential creators, event shooters and digital storytellers rely on smaller camera bodies - with access to a bigger world of lighting. All relayed through the Profoto Connect Pro to flashes, light shaping tools and accessories that make their work stand out. The Profoto Connect Pro will become a must-have for photographers relying on simplicity and consistency when shooting in the field. With clear and intuitive controls, the sleek transmitter is a reliable companion in varied light where proven TTL and HSS can speed up workflows and even save the day.
The heritage of Leica has impacted generations of photographers, and opening the door to industry leading TTL and HSS is a natural progression in the brand’s constant strive for perfection. With the Profoto Connect Pro’s intent of reducing and simplifying, the match between Leica and Profoto is obvious. The Connect Pro needs no manual, just put it in the hot-shoe and fire away. Fine tune the power setting in absolute numbers on the go, and get the results you’re after. Profoto’s AirX technology tailor’s workflow to the situation - as the information on the Connect Pro is mirrored through the Profoto Control app for smartphones or tablets. And with up to 100 available channels, there’s enough fire power for any size job.
Leica cameras from the SL, M, S and Q-series will be TTL-compatible with the new Profoto Connect Pro. Estimated availability date for the Leica version is November 2022.
Profoto product will also be available for purchase in selected Leica stores worldwide.
