The Photokina Star Award honors products and innovations that stand our for their innovative nature and trendsetting technologies. Today, that award was given to our new battery generator: the Pro-B4.

The Pro-B4 is the fastest battery generator ever made available to the public. It can freeze motion at 1/25.000 of a second, fire up to 30 flashes per second and recharge in just 45 minutes. The Pro-B4 can do more than that, but it was these features that it was rewarded for.

This video highlights the above-mentioned features of the Pro-B4. You will also find some images from the award ceremony below.

    Well done! And well deserved! That B4 is certainly a game-changer, it’s become the benchmark. If you ever have a spare one lying around, let me know…it will make a great addition to my D1’s and 7B’s

    I’m very excited about the Pro B4. I use 4 D1’s and a D4 2400 with acute/d4 heads in the studio and the D1s with a BatPac on location.
    The BatPac and D1’s are going on the sale block to fund the B4.
    I see the Pro B4 as the Swiss army knife of lighting….In Studio, on location, an now
    Being able to offer more creativeness with crazy duration. I great creative tool for extreme sports images.
    Congratulations Profoto on Photokinas Star Award!

    When will the pro-b4 be available for purchase? Has this been announced?

      Hi Derek. The Pro-B4 has been released. The only problem you might encounter is that we have more orders than we have generators, which means that your local dealer might have to wait a while for their shipment to arrive. In short, you’ll have to contact them and ask.

    way to go guys! The golden team has done it again. The B4 is already in a category of its own. Will wait with excitement for it to be available for delivery like a child before Christmas!

    What is the difference?
