Why choose the Profoto A10

Light that’s both natural and beautiful

Because we designed the A10 with a round head rather than the typical rectangular shape used by other on-camera solutions, the light it delivers is both natural and beautiful. That spread of light can also be easily adjusted from a wide setting, where the light has a soft smooth fall-off to something narrower and more focused – with just a simple twist of the zoom ring on the head.

Future-proof with Profoto AirX

AirX is Profoto's latest innovation. A bluetooth based technology that enables you to unleash the full power of the A10 flash, no matter what type of capturing device you use - now and in the future. Making Profoto A10 a truly future proof product that offers seamless inter-device connectivity with the Profoto eco system and beyond.

Never miss a shot

The A10 can keep up because it recycles four times faster than most on-camera solutions – that’s every 1.0 seconds at full power. Put simply, you’ll never miss a shot.

Less time learning means more time shooting

We designed the A10 to be uncomplicated, so there’s no learning curve. The interface is simple, clean and clear meaning you can spend more time engaged with your clients and create a great image.

No more worrying about battery life

The A10 has its own exchangeable Li-Ion high capacity battery pack that lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries with no performance fade, and a facility to recharge quickly. So you can shoot for longer with confidence.

Visualize your image with the modeling light

The A10's built-in modeling light gives you an instant understanding of how light and shadow work together before you press the shutter, as well as providing an additional light source in low light situations.

AirTTL means built-in convenience and versatility

With AirTTL you have a huge amount of built-in flexibility. TTL allows you to lock in the perfect exposure instantly, giving you far greater degree of control and a significantly faster workflow. It’s pretty much point-and-shoot; it’s easy, fast and precise. And the ‘Air’ feature means you can communicate with another A10 or other Profoto light seamlessly, and High-Speed Sync is right there when you need it.

Grow with Clic

With the A10, you can open the door to a world of creative opportunities. There is a dedicated set of light-shaping modifiers for the A-series, the Clic light shapers. Thanks to a built-in smart magnetic mount, the Clic light shapers can be easily clicked on and off or stacked to help you achieve exactly the effect you want. The Clic range consists of a wide range of modifiers, from grids and gels to softboxes and reflectors. You can also use the A10 with more powerful lights, such as the B10 series, together with the 120+ light-shaping tools available.
