Get the shot easier and faster with AirTTL

Nothing should come between you and creating an amazing image. That ideal drove us to create a range of different Profoto Air remotes – making sure you find one that fits your needs perfectly. Think of it as your nerve center that sits on top of your camera, helping you to instantly find the right exposure. Just point, shoot and achieve a perfectly exposed image fast, using TTL (auto mode). You don’t have to think – just act. That speed, control and ease-of-use is technology working for you. And using Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) means you can shape light even in bright sunlight.

The Profoto Air remotes provides freedom. Freedom to sync and control all your lights from your shooting position. Freedom to create. And with seamless connectivity up to a massive 300 meters (1000 ft.), you get a faster and easier workflow. This is extreme ease-of-use. And this is creativity coming first. This is Profoto Air.

    The button-free trigger

    Profoto Connect is the button-free trigger that integrates your camera and Profoto light – making light shaping easier than ever before. It only has three settings; auto, manual and off. In auto mode, you just point and shoot for a good exposure, because the flash power is calculated for you. And in manual mode, you can fine-tune the light either manually or via the Profoto app. The Profoto app is available for iPhone 7 and later, running on iOS 11 and later. This app is required for full control of the Profoto Connect and for making firmware upgrades.

    Sync and trigger: Yes
    Light control: Via the Profoto app

Profoto Connect

The button-free trigger that lets you be free to create

No buttons – making room for creativity

Less complexity means more opportunities for creativity. That’s why we’ve stripped away all the buttons and dials and replaced them with only the settings that count; auto, manual and off. In auto mode, you automatically get a great exposure in every shot - all you do is point and shoot. Slide it over to manual, and you can fine-tune the light to fit your personal style, either directly on the light or via the Profoto app.

Small and minimalistic design

You've never seen a trigger like this. A small, smooth cylindrical pod that fits perfectly on top of your camera. And because it weighs next to nothing, you'll hardly know it's there – regardless what camera you use. Profoto Connect is minimalism personified.

A trigger you can grow with

We'd like to think that the Profoto Connect is just the start of a great adventure with flash. Point-and-shoot in auto mode or fine-tune in manual. Either way, whether you're experienced with flash or a flash-curious natural light shooter, there's a world of creative possibilities just waiting to be discovered.

Quick guide

TTL and HSS. The expressions might seem technical, but we promise that using these features is actually a piece of cake.

Guide

What is TTL?

TTL means that the flash exposure is set automatically, via communication between the camera and light. Based on your camera setting, the camera will select a perfect flash exposure for every shot – no matter how much you or your subject move around. This allows you to be fully focused on the image and being creative – all you need to do is just point and shoot. For the Profoto Connect, TTL is called ‘Auto mode’. You can always switch to manual at any time if you prefer to set the flash manually.

Guide

What is HSS?

HSS or High-Speed Sync, enables you to use flash at any shutter speed up to 1/8,000 of a second. That means you are in full control of the ambient light, which is useful when shooting outdoors in sunlight. With HSS you can shape light even with large apertures and at fast shutter speeds. HSS is great for outdoor portraits with shallow depth of field or freezing fast action in broad daylight. Profoto HSS is faster, more powerful and more consistent than any other HSS solution on the market.

AirTTL seamlessly connects your light with your camera

Get the shot fast

With Profoto AirTTL it’s easy to get the shot fast, because we’ve removed any technical barriers between you and the image that’s taking shape in your imagination. There’s no fiddling around with endless settings and menus in stressful situations. Instead your focus is one hundred percent where it should be, on your client and the image you want to create. You can shoot easier and faster – the very essence of a smart and effective workflow.

Free your hands and mind

Profoto AirTTL provides seamless connectivity between your lights and your camera. If you want to change a setting on any one of the lights you’re using, all you have to do is push a button on the Air Remote or Profoto A1 that’s attached to the hot-shoe of your camera. That’s total control from your shooting position, leaving you free to experiment with light and create amazing images.

Capture the moment in perfect light with Profoto AirTTL

Finding the right exposure first time can be a challenge when time is limited or the light is constantly changing. AirTTL automatically finds it for you - so all you need to do is point and shoot. Alternatively, you can switch to manual mode, keep your previous TTL settings and fine tune the exposure until you achieve exactly the look and feel you want.

Shape light in broad daylight with Profoto HSS

With Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) it doesn’t matter how bright the sun shines. It enables you to use your flash at shutter speeds up to 1/8,000s. So you can overpower the sun and shape your light even with large apertures in broad daylight. Profoto HSS is faster, more powerful and more consistent than any other HSS solution on the market.

Shoot long distance and light bigger scenes

Feel free to take on some of the biggest shoots and locations, because Profoto AirTTL provides seamless connectivity across an unbeatable range of 300 meters (1000 ft.). Imagine lighting a football pitch, a church, or an awe-inspiring ice cave in Piztal, Austria for example. AirTTL allows you to create and shape light from the click of a button. But more than that, it allows you to think bigger.

Profoto Air is universal

Don’t worry if you shoot with other camera brands that Profoto doesn’t yet support with AirTTL. Choose the standard Air Remote instead. It’s compatible with any camera that has a hot shoe and it still provides the incredible sensation of shooting free, without any cords to cramp your creativity.
