Today, we are happy to introduce the very first B1 kit. The kit is called Profoto B1 Location Kit. As the name suggests, it is designed to make the highly portable B1 even easier to bring to an on-location shoot.
The most attention-grabbing features of the Profoto B1 have always been the B1’s TTL metering and its cordless operation. Both of these features convey the same message: the B1 is not a studio flash. It is an off-camera flash designed for on-location photography. The TTL function shines the brightest in challenging lighting conditions. Its cordless operation unleashes your creativity and makes it want to run free in the wild!
The new Profoto B1 Location Kit was designed with this in mind. The kit contains the following:
- 2 x B1 Off-camera Flashes
The B1 makes great light easy. With TTL you set the light in a flash. With battery power and without cords, you can take it with you wherever you go and put it wherever you want. Add to that the power, speed and light shaping possibilities that Profoto lights are known for.
- 2 x Li-Ion Batteries
This powerful and exchangeable battery will provide 220-50.000 flashes in a single charge depending on your flash output.
- 1 x Fast Charger 4.5A
The Fast Charger will fully recharge the Li-Ion Battery in only one hour. Plus it is safe and very easy to use.
- 1 x Car Charger 1.8A
Plugs into a standard car cigarette connector and recharges the Li-Ion Battery in two hours.
- 1 x BackPack M
A tailor-made backpack with comfortable carrying straps, adjustable compartments and side pockets for carrying stands (not included).
The B1 Location Kit is the latest addition to our growing and evolving off-camera flash concept. In November 2013, the B1 and its many accessories were launched. In April 2014, the first firmware upgrade was released, enabling TTL metering with the Canon EOS-1D X.
As you all know, we are now working on the firmware upgrade that will enable high-speed sync (HSS). We are also busy developing the new Air Remote TTL-N that will enable TTL metering with Nikon cameras. New Light Shaping Tools, optimized for off-camera flashes, are also on their way.
