Key Features:

  • 2-light kit in a tailor-made backpack. Just grab it and go!
  • Perfect exposure in a flash with AirTTL.
  • Battery-powered and cordless.
  • Fast and powerful.
  • Works with more than 120 Light Shaping Tools.

Off-camera flash. With TTL. Without cords.

The Profoto B1 makes it easier than ever to take the flash off your camera. With AirTTL you set the light in a flash. With battery power and a clever design with no cables or cords, you can take the B1 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, and you have an off-camera flash that makes great light easy.
