Profoto B10 and B10 Plus Big lights in small packages
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 and the Profoto B10 Plus. Both are a big light in a small package.

Both are seriously small with the B10 similar in size to a medium camera lens and the B10 Plus around the size of a large camera lens. That said, both lights punch significantly above their weight with the B10 delivering five times the power of a speedlight and the B10 Plus, twice that amount. Light that's natural and beautiful with a soft, gentle fall-off.
In addition to the range of Profoto AirTTL options for wireless trigger and control, the B10’s now have 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*.
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 either light on a camera tripod as on a light stand, and because both lights are super lightweight, you can even use them handheld.
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 both the B10 and the B10 Plus. A range of Profoto AirTTL options for wireless trigger and control means they are compatible any major camera brand, while the Profoto app lets you play with light and shadow to create amazing images with either light from your smartphone.

Shooting with Profoto Camera app and my B10 Plus is just like shooting with your DSLR. It is the freedom to create the light I usually want for my professional images and instantly deliver pictures for extremely urgent jobs for websites and social media
The combination of the Profoto Camera app and my B10 Plus simply brings professional quality lighting to mobile photography with total ease
The B10 Plus is my favorite flash to bring my artistry on-location because I get power, portability and I can use all the modifiers I need.
I’m a storyteller and as such I want the audience to understand the whole story, from beginning to end. Using Profoto B10’s to shoot stills and video enables me to make the story complete.
The B10 Plus. Wow, it's compact - extremely small and light when I compare it with my B1X. And the reduced battery size is amazing, I can easily pack a few extra battery packs without sacrificing the lightness of my kit... that's so convenient.
I love the super-fast recycling times, the power and the flexibility - and having no misfires at all. […] Most of all it gives me the freedom to shoot the images I want, and that’s great.
[…] as someone who travels a lot and needs to shoot super-fast in sometimes some pretty dangerous locations, having the right balance between power and size is a huge advantage. I definitely need the B10; this light just upgraded my level of creativity.
The B10 gives us possibilities to experiment and play with light in all light conditions - even in harsh harsh light. And it is so easy.
If it’s small and light enough for us to make it work in the chaos of this environment, then we should be able to use it in the chaos of a wedding.
It’s like a fat lens. It will fit in every camera bag I own.
