Thank you to Dan Cuny, Profoto’s Western Regional Sales Manager and all those who attended our Profoto off-camera flash demonstration at Camera West in Walnut Creek last night. Dan showed us the latest in Profoto’s off-camera flash system and participants were encouraged to try the various Profoto light shaping tools on model Puneet Gill.
Come see us at Camera West if interested in this revolutionary flash system.

Puneet Gill was our beautiful model for the event.
Learn all about off-camera flash with the Profoto system at Camera West in Walnut Creek. We will provide the models, gear and teachers to make the experience both informative and fun. This will be your opportunity for a hands-on demonstration with both the B1 and B2 off-camera flash system and light shaping tools.
Off-camera flashes are not speedlights and they are not monolights. They are a new kind of flash, combining the best of both worlds. Profoto’s off-camera flashes are distinguished by their revolutionizing TTL technology, cordless convenience and powerful light. Put together, these features to bring you a whole new way of shooting.

Profoto has revolutionized the lighting game with the B1 Off-Camera Flash: a powerful cordless monolight with TTL metering capabilities.
The B1 combines all of the best parts of a studio strobe and a portable speedlight. Like a speedlight, it is cordless and runs off of its own battery pack. It also offers TTL (through the lens) metering, but unlike a speedlight, this 500 watt head is much more powerful.
What Profoto is trying to do with the B1 is allow speedlight users to take their work to the next level without sacrificing portability and features in the name of power.
Attach the Air Remote TTL and you have the convenience of TTL metering from as far away as 100m (regular sync up to 300m away) The B1 is also fast with recycle times ranging from 0.1 seconds at low power to 1.9 seconds at full power, and when you set it to low it can flash as fast as 20 times per second!
The B1 and Air Remote TTL-C (denoting Canon compatibility only) are both now, with the B1 going for $2,000 per head and the remote separately for $400.
For now, the TTL functionality is only available for Canon shooters (with E-TTL II support), but Profoto is promising a Nikon version of the Air Remote soon.
