Last year our friends at Phase One approached us and informed us that they would like to seamlessly integrate our flash system into their camera systems. Now the result is here: the groundbreaking XF Camera System, allowing you to trigger your Profoto flashes directly from your camera back at shutter speeds as fast as 1/1600 of a second.
Most available camera systems have a technical limitation preventing them from being used at shutter speeds faster than 1/250 of a second when using flash. This limitation causes problems when trying to control ambient light, shooting in daylight, and when freezing motion outdoors to name just a few examples.
Profoto provides two different solutions to this problem depending on what system you use.
