B1 became the benchmark for on location flashes. Now, the benchmark is about to be set again with the launch of the Profoto B1X. This isn’t an update, this is a significant replacement with improvements in three important areas; power, power and power.
We’d like to think of the new B1X as power with a purpose. And that purpose is simple, we want image creators everywhere to be able to realize their vision. If that’s halfway up a mountain, overpowering the sun in the middle of the desert or hanging off a rock overlooking the Mediterranean – then so be it.
That’s why the LED modeling light adds 80% more light output, the battery holds 50% more power and why the B1X has the widest HSS range available on any flash.
Because we want you to have power in all the right places. And the most important place of all just happens to be your imagination.
Quick to set up. Easy to use.
Profoto doesn’t do complicated. The B1X is a fully cordless light with few simple,
intuitive controls and a large easy-to-read LED display. So instead of tripping
over cables or fiddling with sub menus or user manuals, you can focus on being
creative. Sometimes less is more.
Capture the moment in perfect light with AirTTL
Finding the right exposure first time can be a challenge when time is limited or
the light is constantly changing. AirTTL automatically does it all for you, just
point and shoot
Shape light in broad daylight with HSS
With Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) it doesn’t matter how bright the sun shines.
It enables you to use your flash at shutter speeds up to 1/8,000s. So you can
overpower the sun and shape your light even with large apertures in broad
Battery power you can rely on
Don’t worry about losing power at a vital moment –B1X’s rechargeable Lithium-ion
battery provides up to 325 flashes at full power and tens of thousands at lowest
power. And it recharges in no time.
Modeling light with power and quality
A powerful LED modeling light enables you to preview your shot and evaluate how
light and shadows falls on the subject. The power and quality of the modeling
light also makes it very useful as main or fill light in low light situations.
With tools to explore your light shaping potential
Photography is all about controlling and shaping light. With the B1X it is easy
to take your creativity to the next level with our dedicated range of compact,
lightweight OCF Light Shaping Tools.
