Shutterbug is a magazine dedicated to serious photo enthusiasts and working professionals. Recently, Shutterbugs’s staff writer Steve Bedell put the Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flash and the Air Remote TTL-C to the test. Read his review to learn what he thinks about them.
“Like all Profoto gear, the B1 lights and accessories are built to take years of hard use,” writes Shutterbug’s Steve Bedell. “I particularly like the lamp head design where you just throw a cap on it and you don’t worry about breaking anything. The battery design and capacity are exemplary.”
Steve wanted to try the B1 Off-Camera Flash and Air Remote TTL-C on location. Doing so, he tried a few different setups. For instance, he did one in Atlantic Gymnastics in Dover, New Hampshire, where he used two B1 Off-Camera Flashes, one Umbrella Deep White L and his Air Remote TLL-C.
“The Air Remote TTL-C controller is so simple to use that you’ll be off and running in five minutes. Once you get used to using it, the integration of radio control plus TTL makes everything else seem like old tech.”
“They set up quickly and can get you accurate exposures with little effort on your part. With the cost of top-of-the-line speedlights going for $550 to $600 with only a fraction of the power, the B1 lights make economic sense for many applications. If you have the need and the budget, these lights should be high on your shopping list.”
