You know the B1 – the off-camera flash that has been called “game changer” more times than we can count. Today, we present the next step in that evolution. Meet the new Profoto Off-Camera Flash system and the new Profoto B2.
The new Profoto Off-Camera Flash system is designed for fast and easy on-location photography. Everything included in the system is small and lightweight. Everything is easy to use.
The most attention-grabbing item in the system is probably the new Profoto B2. The Profoto B2 is a lighter, more portable counterpart to the B1. The Profoto B2 consists of a battery pack and a head. The battery pack can be put on the shoulder or hip, while the head is small and light enough to be mounted onto a monopod or a bracket on the camera. This will allow the photographer to stay moving. If that is not necessary, both the pack and head can be put on a stand and the Profoto B2 can be wirelessly controlled from the camera. This makes the Profoto B2 the world’s first off-camera flash that can be used both on and off-camera.
