The ultimate flash
In addition to being the world's fastest flash, the Profoto Pro-11 is the world's most advanced flash thanks to Profoto's proprietary AirX technology. When shooting with the Pro-11, one real-world benefit with the built-in AirX comes clear; the higher degree of convenience and control available to you on the day significantly improves workflow. And via the Profoto apps, you'll get real-time updates and upgrades, so your user experience will always be the latest, and you'll have an overview of all your Profoto gear.
That said, beneath the Pro-11's ruggedly beautiful exterior is a beast of a flash; delivering consistently outstanding performance that allows you to freeze moments in time in unprecedented detail and clarity. This really is the ultimate flash.
The Pro-11 boasts record breaking speed in its capability to keep flash duration and recycling short across the full power range. It easily matches the fastest cameras making 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 you have independent control over each head. Everything you need to shoot with power and precision from shot to shot.
Simplicity is everything. So the Pro-11’s user interface is super-straightforward and intuitive with a new bright, clean and clear display. And we’ve kept buttons and dials to the absolute minimum with three large, rubberized dials. As a result, changing settings is easy, even in the dark.
With the built-in Profoto AirX connectivity you can use the Pro-11 with any camera type, including your smartphone. With Profoto apps you can also enjoy smartphone remote control and access wireless updates for your Pro-11 firmware the instant they are released. So you can rest assured that you'll experience seamless compatibility with both current and future cameras and Profoto products.
Pro-11 is designed to shoot at high volumes with incredible consistency. Built with uncompromising engineering and craftsmanship, it’s so rugged and durable, it’ll still be performing at the highest level in years to come.
Pro-11 enables you to combine its speed, power and control with multiple compatible flash heads and over 120 light shaping tools. With all this at your disposal, your creative possibilities are endless.
