Profoto B1 off camera flash review Fstoppers Fstoppers B1 Off camera Flash Review

Fstoppers staff writer and portrait photographer Zach Sutton just published a thorough B1 off-camera flash review. His verdict? “Exceptional.”

Zach starts off the review by naming the B1 “the most exciting product announced within the last year.” He then discusses its build and interface, its TTL function, cordless design and fast recycing, amongst other things.

Finally, he concludes:

“Profoto refuses to call the Profoto B1 a speedlight or monolight, but rather, an off-camera flash. What I like to call it, however, is exceptional,” he writes. “I was beyond excited when this light was announced back in November, and I’m only more excited now. I truly believe that the Profoto B1 is the best product to come out for photographers in the last year, and only makes me excited that wall powered studio strobes can someday be a thing of the past.”

    We have been used it since last days of 2013 in group shoots.
    Last saturday we were 8 photographers in a “paparazzi way”
    More than 4000 shoots in 90 minutes consuming just 1/3 of the battery charge. Amazing quality of portrait and fashion images with the skyline of Paris always present. It is an EXTRAORDINARY gear no matters which is the name you are going to give to it. shoots at twilight, temperature 5*C, no modeling light and power around 3-4. Ernie Engadin and TeaTime & Photo Shooting Paris Club. Waiting for the Nikon version!
