The world's fastest flash
Get the speed to exceed with the Pro-10
Pro-10 isn’t just fast. It’s record-breaking. Our flagship flash can achieve a breathtakingly short flash duration of up to 1/80,000s. But even more impressive, both flash duration and recycling time are extremely short higher up the power scale than with any other flash. The unique combination of power and speed changes everything.

Describing Pro-10 as fast would be an understatement. It is a record breaker in its capability to keep flash duration and recycling short across the full power range. It easily matches the fastest cameras and makes it easy to capture crisp, sharp images from a series of super-fast exposures.
With an 11 f-stop power range at your fingertips you’ll find it easy to set the light you want. It’s adjustable in 1/10 f-stop increments from 2.4 up to 2400Ws. And it’s fully asymmetric 0-100% on both outlets, so you have independent control over each head. Everything you need to shoot with power and precision from shot to shot.
Pro-10 is advanced, not complicated. Its user interface is simple and intuitive with a few carefully selected controls. There are just three large rubberized dials and a high-resolution display. So when you’re changing settings, it’s easy to see, feel and find it, even in the dark. And its sleek minimal design looks good in black. Sometimes less is more.
AirTTL gives you more time and options to light your shot creatively. You can use it instead of a light meter, switch to manual mode and tweak your TTL settings to get the perfect exposure. And you can wirelessly control other lights up to a range of 300m, knowing they will fire every single time. Then you can focus on your art, not the technology.
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.
Pro-10 is designed to shoot at high volumes with incredible color temperature consistency. Built with uncompromising engineering and craftsmanship, it’s so tough, robust and durable, it’ll probably still be performing at the highest level in 20 years’ time.
Just as an artist needs paints and brushes, a photographer needs tools to shape light. Pro-10 enables you to combine its speed, power and control with 11 different compatible flash heads and over 120 light shaping tools. With all this at your disposal, your creative possibilities are truly limitless.
