The Profoto B10 is the smallest and lightest off-camera flash in the range. It has five times the power of a speedlight all packed into the size of a camera lens. You can even shoot video with the integrated continuous light. The Profoto B10 truly is a big light in a small package.
The B10 comes as a 250Ws version and is available in two different kits: the B10 with a single head and the B10 Duo Kit with two heads.

Shooting on location has lots of challenges. One of the most significant challenges arises before you even go there. How much gear to bring? Bring too much, and you’re weighed down by lights and cables. Not enough and the chances of capturing the image you’d hoped for might be compromised.
That's why Profoto created the Profoto B10, their smallest and most lightweight off-camera flash ever. With five times the power of a speedlight packed into the size and shape of a camera lens, the Profoto B10 makes it easy to be creative with light anywhere. In addition, the B10 is more than just a flash. It’s also a bright and dimmable continuous light that you can use to light both stills and videos. And the adjustable color temperature makes it easy to blend with ambient light.
Compatibility with Profoto’s light shaping tools expand your creative opportunities further. You can choose any tool from the lightweight OCF family or select between over 120 light shaping tools available in the full Profoto range. The tools let you create any mood or feeling with light.
The clean and minimal interface makes the B10 easy to use straight from the box. The battery is quick and easy to replace, and you can also charge it while it's in use. If you have an assistant, the B10 is light enough to be used handheld and if you set it up by yourself you can just as easily mount it on a camera tripod or on a light stand.
You can trigger and control the B10 wirelessly with any Profoto AirTTL remote, with a Profoto A1, or connect it with the Profoto app. Through the app you can view and control all the settings from your smartphone screen, experience creative capture with your smartphone and download all the latest upgrades.

Create an account on My Profoto, register your B10, and we will let you know by email whenever a new firmware update is available for download. If you get the Profoto app, you will receive an automatic notification on your phone when a new firmware update is available for your B10. You can update your B10 directly from the app. The Profoto app is currently only available for iOS, and you can get it for free from the App Store.
No this is not possible.
Up to 30 meters/100ft but depending on environment.
Yes. Our products are safe and certified to take on a plane, regardless of your destination. In general, airlines will require you to carry batteries as cabin luggage. On rare occations, you could be asked to show battery travel documentation, so we recommend you bring it with when travelling.
The Profoto B10 can be used with any camera from any camera brand, as long as it has a hotshoe where you can connect an optional Profoto A1 or Profoto Air Remote to trigger and remote control the B10. To enable TTL and High-Speed Sync, you need to use an A1 or Air Remote TTL version that is compatible with your camera brand. Today, we offer optional A1 versions for Canon and Nikon and Air Remote TTL versions for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, and Olympus. For a different camera experience, we also recommend that you download the Profoto app and try out Profoto’s own creative capture with your smartphone. The Profoto app is currently only available for iOS, and you can get it for free from the App Store.
All light shaping tools in the OCF family are highly recommended and so are all Profoto umbrellas and RFi Softboxes. In addition, almost all “classic” Profoto reflectors can be fitted onto the B10. Due to the short and flat front of the B10, the zoom range might be limited or the light effect might not be exctly as advertised. The magnetic accessories for the Profoto A1 do not fit onto the B10. If you are uncertain, please contact us or your local Profoto dealer.
There is no numerical color temperature scale in the display because it will only display a false sense of accuracy. If exact accuracy is required for a specific application, we always recommend measuring with a color meter. This is because the actual color temperature will differ depending on where the light bounces and which light shaping tool is used. On top of that there is also a nominal color temperature difference of +-500K between individual units and a color temperature drift during the lifetime of the LED.
There is currently no such option and we do not make comments on plans for products we don't have.
Shipments of the B10 are estimated to reach the first dealers by end of October. Local availability may vary.
