Shape Sunlight or Bounce Flash Light with our New Collapsible Reflectors

We do not need tell you why collapsible reflectors are great. Every photographer knows that (affordable, lightweight, easy to use, etc.). But what you most probably did not know is that we just released a bunch of them.

So, what make ours stand out from the crowd of collapsible reflectors? Well, here are a couple of features that we think make our Collapsible Reflectors special:

First of all, the sturdy yet collapsible squircle-shaped metal frame is equipped with two ergonomically shaped handles. This makes the reflectors much easier to fold and hold in various positions. Also, the Collapsible Reflectors have a squircle shape that is quite unique.

Secondly, we put a lot of effort into making sure our Collapsible Reflectors are as tough and reliable as possible. They are designed with high-quality fabrics and the frame itself is far tougher and durable than your average reflector.

Last but not least, Profoto’s Collapsible Reflectors are available in no less than ten different versions. Four types of two-sided reflectors are available: Silver/White, Sunsilver/White, Gold/White & Matte Black/White. There is also a translucent screen available to be used as a diffuser. Each of these is available in two sizes: Medium (80 cm /32’’) and Large (120 cm /47”).

Below you fill find a complete list of all the Collapsible Reflectors that are available as of today. For more information, please go to the dedicated page at our website.

You will also find a couple of behind-the-scenes images below, showing Portuguese fashion photographer Frederico Martins in action with the new Collapsible Reflectors. Tomorrow, we will publish the full story from Frederico’s shoot. Stay tuned!

Notice anything different? Yup, our blog has finally had a facelift. Hope you like it.

But there is more than meets the eye. For instance, the categories and tags have been cleaned out. It should now be a lot easier to browse posts from a certain point of interest, such as “portrait photography” or “Pro-B3″. Also, the authors page has been updated, and the admittedly annoying “read more” button that insisted on showing up even if there was not anything more to read has been removed. Now, if there is a “read more” button, there is more to read…

We also have two new monthly article series. One is called Behind the Scenes at Profoto. This series will feature interviews with the Profoto staff. So, if you ever wondered who we are or what the thinking was behind the design of this or that piece of equipment, stay tuned. The first piece will be published tomorrow.

The other series is called The Light Shaper and follows Profoto’s in-house photographer and light shaping evangelist Andrea Belluso in his daily work. The first piece will be published within a week or two.

Light Shaping Tool of the Month and Ian Ruhter’s Silver & Light will, of course, continue as usual.

Last but not least, if you have any thoughts on the new layout or on how is can be improved, please leave a comment or drop us a line. We are still tweaking it a bit, so any feedback will be much appreciated.

Capable of firing up to 30 flashes per second while delivering flash durations down to 1/25,000 of a second, the Pro-B4 is the fastest battery generator ever made available to the public.

That said, finding a place to rent this beast can take a while longer. So, to make things easier for those of you who are interested in renting a Pro-B4, we have created a list all rentals that have the units in stock.

Click here to see the list.

For more information about the Pro-B4, we suggest checking out our Pro-B4 website or reading our interview with action-photographer Marcel Lämmerhirt.
