Profoto C1: For Next-Level Smartphone Photography

Capture professional-looking images using just your smartphone, the Profoto Camera app, and the Profoto C1. Amazingly portable and easy to use, the Profoto C1 is a combined flash and continuous light that creates beautifully natural-looking illumination when and where you need it. With this remarkable smartphone light, you can transform dark or ordinary scenes into extraordinary ones.

Professional Studio Light for Smartphones

Transform your smartphone photography with the Profoto C1 and Profoto Camera app. Designed with a rounded shape, dome diffuser and built-in reflectors, the Profoto C1 is a highly compact studio light that creates beautifully natural-looking light and shadows. It’s designed to fit in the palm of your hand, and outputs up to 1600 lumens of flash or flicker-free continuous light – enough to photograph stunning images not possible with a smartphone alone.


Beautiful Light Anywhere, Any Time

The Profoto C1 is small yet powerful enough to carry and create photo opportunities anywhere – holidays, parties, or wherever your creativity takes you. Four warm and three cold LEDs allow you to adjust the colour of your lighting to match any conditions between dawn and dusk (3000-6500K). A highly accurate colour rendering index (CRI) of 90-98 ensures that any colours produced by the Profoto C1 are almost identical to real daylight.


Point and Shoot or Go Full Manual

Enjoy point-and-shoot simplicity in auto mode, which calculates exposure and flash power for you based on the ambient conditions. Or use manual mode to assume full creative control over power, exposure and colour temperature.


Tiny Size, Limitless Creative Potential

The Profoto C1’s tiny size unlocks a world of creative possibilities. Because the Profoto C1 fits in your hand, you can easily handhold and manoeuvre it to light your subject as desired. You can even hide the Profoto C1 in your image to create effects not possible with larger lights. Adjust the light’s colour temperature to create a cool cast or golden glow that matches or contrasts with the ambient light. Go from a bright, natural look to shadowy and dramatic one with just a swipe of your finger. Use the Profoto C1 solo or with multiple other lights. The options are endless.
