Compact and convenient
Profoto monolights are self-contained flash units. Unlike a flash pack, which consists of a separate generator and a number of flash heads, the monolight has its own mains powered built-in power source. As a result it’s a compact, convenient and powerful solution for both studio and on-location.
The world’s fastest monolight
With the Profoto D2, you’re always up to speed. Whether you’re shooting portraits, flying food, fashion in action, or sports, with a flash duration of up to 1/63,000 of a second you’ll get a great shot every time. This is high-end light shaping excellence in a superfast and versatile package for photographers who demand only the very best.
6 reasons to choose the Profoto D2

Catch the moment : The D2 can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. That’s fast enough to catch the best of any moment. Ask your subject to jump and you’ll have 20 mid-air exposures to choose from.
Control your surroundings : Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to shoot with shutter speeds up to 1/8,000 of a second. Use HSS to shoot with large aperture in bright conditions or to freeze action with absolute sharpness.
Shoot with ease using TTL : Point-and-shoot in TTL Mode. Switch to Manual Mode and control the light with intuitive buttons and menus. Forget about the flash and focus on the light
Overpower any light : The D2 packs enough of punch to overpower the available light in almost any situation. Its power is also a blessing when shooting at larger distances or when using larger Light Shaping Tools.
