Profoto Connect is the button-free trigger that integrates your camera and Profoto light – making light shaping easier than ever before. It only has three settings; auto, manual and off. In auto mode, you just point and shoot for a good exposure, because the flash power is calculated for you. And in manual mode, you can fine-tune the light either manually or via the Profoto app.

With Profoto Connect, it’s never been easier to create natural and beautiful light anytime, anywhere. It has no buttons and only three settings: auto, manual and off. In auto, you just point and shoot for a good exposure, because the flash power is calculated automatically. Slide it over to manual, and you can fine-tune the light for even more control, either manually or via the Profoto app. This makes the Profoto Connect the perfect trigger to start with and to grow with. Regardless if you’re experienced with created light or just stepping into the world of it, you now have natural and beautiful light on demand and personalized for your needs.

This small, lightweight and carefully designed trigger is compatible with all Profoto AirTTL lights. But most of all, it makes working with the natural and beautiful light from Profoto incredibly easy, letting you focus on what’s important – creating great images.

 

Profoto just made flash easy to use for every image creator.
Introducing Profoto Connect; the button-free trigger.
From time to time something comes along that changes
everything, this is one of those rare occasions.
Profoto Connect is the trigger for flash that’s completely button
free. This is so much more than an improvement; Profoto has
rethought, reimagined and rebuilt the remote trigger from the
hot shoe up to create something that makes the process of
working with flash effortlessly simple.
"Profoto Connect came from a steadfast belief that flash can
be every bit as beautiful as ambient light" commented Martina
Nillenstedt, Profoto Head of Content and Brand, "What we
needed to do was make it more accessible to more image
creators - Profoto Connect does that - from today forward,
working with flash couldn't be easier."
There's almost nothing to the Profoto Connect - It's just a
small, smooth and discreet pod that sits on top of the camera.
Albert Norelius, Profoto Product Manager explains, "When we
sat down and talked with photographers, we recognized that
all the buttons and menus you find on a typical remote trigger
can seem a little complex - so we decided to get rid of them
completely."
Instead, Profoto Connect simply has three settings; auto,
manual and off. In auto mode, which for those who are
familiar with flash is TTL; it's just point-and-shoot. It's all very
straightforward; the correct flash exposure is calculated
automatically when you press the shutter.
Auto is incredibly useful if the subject is moving, and the
distance between the subject and the flash is changing
because Profoto Connect adjusts the flash power to give you
a great exposure in every shot - leaving you to think about the
most important part – creating great images.
If you'd like a little more control, you can start in auto to
establish a starting exposure, and then slide the Profoto
Connect to manual mode to creatively fine tune it. That way you
can achieve exactly the lighting effect you want.
You can adjust the power on the flash unit, or from the palm of
your hand. "Profoto Connect links directly to the Profoto app via
Bluetooth," Martina added, "If you can swipe your finger across
the screen of your smartphone, then you can adjust the power
output on your flash unit - it's that simple."
Ultimately, that's all there is to it. Combine the Profoto Connect
with the Profoto A1, for example; The world's smallest studio
light - and you have natural and beautiful light on demand.
Whether you want to balance your subject with the background,
bring just the slightest hint of light to your subject, create
beautiful golden-hour portraits or even work in a blue hour and
overcast conditions - there are no barriers between you and the
image you want to capture.
"The way we see it, with Profoto Connect we're all ‘natural light
shooters,’ it's just some of us don't have to wait for the sun to
appear on a cloudy day, or change position when the sun does,
or pack up and go home when the sun vanishes beneath the
horizon." Martina concludes, "With the Profoto Connect - you're
free - free to create."
Profoto Connect; the button free trigger. This is you being free
to create.
