Always up to speed

A photographer faces many different challenges every day. It’s with that in mind that Profoto created the D2. It’s a breakthrough, because it’s The world’s fastest monolight with TTL. So for the first time, no matter what the assignment, speed is always on your side.

You can freeze action with absolute sharpness, shoot in super quick bursts, sync with the fastest camera shutter speeds available, and shoot fast and easy with HSS and TTL. So whether you’re shooting sports, food or fashion, with the D2 you’re always up to speed.

Six reasons to choose the Profoto D2

  • Freeze the moment

    The D2 can provide super quick flash durations up to 1/63,000 of a second. Shoot a splash of water and it will be frozen in mid-air - a photographic work of art
  • Catch the moment

    The D2 can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. That's fast enough to catch the best of any moment. Ask your subject to jump and you'll have 20 mid-air exposures to choose from.
  • Control your surroundings

    Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to shoot with shutter speeds up to 1/8,000 of a second. Use HSS to shoot with large aperture in bright conditions or to freeze action with absolute sharpness.
  • Shoot with ease using TTL

    Point-and-shoot in TTL Mode. Switch to Manual Mode and control the light with intuitive buttons and menus. Forget about the flash and focus on the light.
  • Overpower any light

    The D2 packs enough punch to overpower the available light in almost any situation. Its power is also a blessing when shooting at larger distances or when using larger Light Shaping Tools.
  • Grow with speed

    It has the speed to set you free, and the power for you to be at your best. It's an integrated part of the extensive Profoto system. Go full speed ahead with the D2.


Speed redefined by Profoto

For the great photographers, challenges are there to be conquered. And for them, speed is more than the ability to freeze a moment of action or to match the fastest camera shutter. It’s about setting creativity free. Moving fast, delivering fast, capturing the seemingly impossible – fast. Taking light, and shaping something remarkable with it. Setting the bar higher – and then doing it all over again.

They redefine their craft every single day. And so does Profoto. This is speed redefined.
