It looks like an external flash, yet Profoto insists the A1 is just as capable as its studio lights. From a glance, its round head indicates it's different than a standard speedlight, delivering natural, pleasing illumination with a smooth fall-off. A smart magnetic mount makes adding shapers and modifiers a breeze, a zoom function controls the spread with ease, and the built-in modeling light lets you see what you're getting before you take the shot. Powered by a high-capacity Li-ion cell, it lasts up to four times longer and recycles four times faster than typical on-camera solutions, has built-in Air Remote and AirTTL for wireless operation, and can function off-camera as part of a larger system. Available for Canon and Nikon cameras.
