What is Profoto Air?
Profoto Air is a complete system for remote radio sync and control, designed to free your eyes and hands so that your mind and heart can focus on the image you set out to create.
What products is Air compatible with?
Profoto Air allows for high-speed sync with almost any speedlight or flash pack available on the market. If you have a Profoto unit with built-in Air, connect an Air Sync/Remote to your camera’s hot shoe and you are good to go. If your flash does not support Air, use the Sync Cable to connect a second Air Sync/Remote to the flash and start shooting. Note that Profoto Air is the fastest radio sync system in the world, offering a sync speed as fast as 1/1600 s.
Can I use Air to control my units from the computer?
Yes. Download the Profoto Studio 3 software (free of charge) and connect the Air USB transceiver to your computer. You will now have full control of every unit that is compatible with Air. Another option is to download the Profoto Studio plug-in for Capture One, which allows you to control your units from within the Capture One software.
Can I use Air to trigger my camera from afar?
Yes. Find the dedicated Release Cable that fits your specific camera model, and connect it to an Air Sync/Remote. Then use a second Air Sync/Remote to instantly trigger the camera from the palm of your hand.
Can I use Air to trigger more than one camera at once?
No problem! Use Release Cables to connect Air Sync/Remote units to each remote camera. Then use another Air Sync/Remote as your remote control, and release all of your cameras at once with a simple button press. Perfect for action-packed sports events, or just about any situation where one pair of eyes and hands is not enough.
