Smaller than any other studio light out there in the market, the Profoto A1 is compact enough to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. As the smallest studio light that doubles up as an on-camera solution, you’ll be able to use it for a range of situations.
Instead of using a typical rectangular shaped head, the round head of the Profoto A1 Canon produces soft, radial light for a completely natural finish. Your shots won’t look staged by giving off an even tone of beautiful light. A swivel of the zoom ring on the head will adjust the spread of light evenly to achieve the right balance of light.
Adding and stacking light modifiers is made easy with a magnetic mount, enabling you to experiment with different lighting effects. The magnets have a strong hold so you don’t need to worry about your light modifier coming off. The modifiers easily click on and off and can be stacked to help you get the look you’re after. Play around with a Dome Diffuser, Bounce Card, Wide Lens, Gel Kit or a Soft Bounce to get some great light effects, whether you’re shooting portraits or streetscapes.
The integrated AirTTL makes it easy to communicate with another A1 or other Profoto light seamlessly. TTL gives you great flexibility to lock in the exposure you’re after in an instant for more control, delivering fast and accurate results. It’s easy to switch from TTL to manual to gain full control of the light and quickly change the exposure.
The rechargeable battery on the Profoto A1 is mighty, powered with high capacity lithium-ion that lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries. With only one battery, charging is easy and quick without fuss. You can shoot all day without a worry with its long-lasting battery life, powering your flash even on long shoots.
You’ll always be ready for the next moment, with a fast recycle time that reduces the waiting time between your shots. This battery recycles four times faster than most on-camera solutions at around 1.2 seconds at full power.
