AC-powered flash with power and speed

Building on the popular D1, the D2 1000-watt monolight boasts extra power, super-fast operation and flexibility. It’s capable of 1/8000 HSS, can recycle to full power in 1.2 seconds and allows shooting in both TTL and manual mode. A large, intuitive high-resolution display, full AirTTL integration, a built-in reflector and 300W modeling lamp top off the list of impressive highlights. 

High Speed Sync up to 1/8000 Sec

Shoot at shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second with High Speed Sync (HSS) Mode at the press of a button. The D2 1000 Air TTL Monolight is capable of producing an extremely fast series of flash pulses – particularly handy to help control and shape lighting when shooting in ambient light or when capturing fast-moving action.

Powerful flash possibilities

The Profoto D2 1000 Air TTL has a powerful range to give you optimum control and precise results. The flash can burst up to 20 times per second and can provide incredibly quick flash durations of up to 1/50000 of a second – it’s so quick, you could capture a water splash mid-air in amazing detail. The D2 also packs enough power to overpower available light in just about any situation, and is adjustable in 1/10 f-stop increments over a 10 f-stop.

Full integration with other AirTLL

The D2 can be fully integrated together with AirTTL flashes like the B1 and B2. Shoot with all flashes in TTL or manual mode or combine them as you wish. For example, set the D2 in manual for the background and use the B1 or B2 in TTL as the main flash. HSS is available in both manual and TTL modes. 

Compact and convenient

Whether you’re shooting high-action freeze shots of food flying through the air in a studio or you’re out capturing fashion in unique settings, the D2 can go anywhere you have an AC power supply. It is compact and convenient to assemble, disassemble and transport. 

Wireless control

Enjoy wireless control over the D2 unit from up to 300m away with any optional Air Remote.

Compatible with 120+ Profoto tools 

The D2 1000 Air TTL Monolight is compatible with 120+ Light Shaping Tools from Profoto's renowned light shaping system, making it highly flexible and adaptable to meet changing needs. There’s also an optional Quartz flashtube for high volume packshot available.

What’s so great about the extreme flash duration the D2 offers?

The D2 offers a great flash duration that extends across the full energy range. The average flash duration is more than 10 times faster than what the D1 offers. This allows it to ensure extra sharpness to most images – even if the movement isn’t super fast. This is particularly fabulous for high resolution cameras such as the Canon 5DS, Nikon D810, Sony A7R II and medium format cameras. 

Can I use the D2 anywhere in the world or do I need a special version?

Like the D1, the D2 is multi-voltage, so you can take it with you anywhere in the world and know that you can just plug it in and start shooting.

What are the main advantages of the D2 over the D1?

The D2 offers much higher performance when it comes to freezing high-action movement – both in high and low light conditions – thanks to its extremely fast flash duration. You can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. It also performs better than the D1 in ambient lighting conditions with HSS with full control of ambient light. The D2 also features a notable, wide 10 f-stop energy range, so you can shoot even with very little power. Another D2 advantage? It has a new and improved cooling fan which is more silent than the D1’s.

Is the D2 suitable for packshot photography?

Yes, the D2 is ideal for heavy-duty shooting. Be sure to update to the high volume quartz flash tube. The flashtube can handle heat more efficiently – important on long days of heavy-duty flash photography. 

Can I use the optional D1 glass domes with the D2?

Yes, they’re fully compatible.
