The Profoto B1X off-camera flash is the
successor of the award winning Profoto B1. The B1X is no stay-at-home flash;
it’s for the adventurous photographer who likes to get out there on location in
the real world. The portable B1X offers cordless, battery-powered freedom and
flexibility. After all, there aren’t many wall sockets in the middle of a
desert or half way up a mountain. B1X provides you with easy light-shaping
wherever and whatever your location might be thanks to its dedicated system of
lightweight OCF Light Shaping Tools that are designed for maximum mobility and
ease of use.
It offers automatic TTL shooting that
shines brightest in challenging lighting conditions. It offers HSS that enables
you to control and shape light even in broad daylight. And it’s fast to set up
so you’re free to explore and create stunning images. Let your imagination set
the limits, not the length of your cables. The B1X gives you the power you need
in all the right places.
