Quick to set up. Easy to use
Profoto doesn’t do complicated. The B1X is a fully cordless light with few simple, intuitive controls and a large easy-to-read LED display. So instead of tripping over cables or fiddling with sub menus or user manuals, you can focus on being creative. Sometimes less is more.
Shape light in broad daylight with 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.
Modeling light with power and quality
A powerful 24W LED (Output equivalent to 130W Halogen) modeling light enables you to preview your shot and evaluate how light and shadows falls on the subject. The power and quality of the modelling light also makes it very useful as main or fill light in low light situations.
