Designed with light shaping capabilities
The Profoto A1X has a unique round head with a soft, smooth fall-off that makes it easy to create natural and beautiful light.
It also includes a smart magnetic mount and dedicated Light Shaping Tools that click on and off quickly and easily. They can be stacked for more creative options. The A1X also offers a built-in LED modeling light that makes it easy to position the light and understand how light and shadows work together.
And it’s extremely easy to use. The user interface is large, clean and clear. Like all Profoto products, it’s intuitive to use and you don’t need to read a long instruction manual to understand how it works. AirTTL remote is also built in to the A1X. With AirTTL and HSS you create professional results fast and easy and with the remote you can seamless connect to other Profoto flashes and control them easily from the A1X.
Profoto A1X is not only an on-camera flash, it’s also very effective off-camera as a standalone unit. The A1X has its own Li-Ion high capacity exchangeable battery that lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries with no performance fade, and a facility to recharge quickly - so you can shoot for longer with confidence. And the A1X can keep up with you because it recycles four times faster than other on-camera solutions – that’s 1.0s at full power. Put simply, you’ll never miss a shot.
A1 Wide Lens
The Wide Lens allows the spread of light from the A1 head to be wider when using wide angle lenses.
This helps the user to create a pleasing wide light that’s ideal for group portraits. It easily clicks and off thanks to a smart magnetic mount and it’s stackable, so it can be used in combination with other A1 Light Shaping Tools.
- Creates a wide light, perfect for group portraits.
- Easily clicks on and off the A1’s magnetic mount.
- Can be stacked with other A1 modifiers.
- Lightweight and portable.
What’s really unique is that with this Wide Lens you can still use the zoom function to adjust the spread of light. This helps the user to create a pleasing wide light that’s ideal for group portraits. It easily clicks and off thanks to a smart magnetic mount and it’s stackable, so it can be used in combination with other A1 Light Shaping Tools like gels, for example. All of which allow you to be more creative with light.
A1 Gel Kit
A convenient pocket-sized protective hard case containing clearly labeled quarter, half and full CTO gels, plus a half green gel that helps to color correct for interior light-bulbs. They are clicked on to the A1’s smart magnetic mount in an instant, and are stackable too so they can be used with other A1 Light Shaping Tools.
Gel Kit Features:
- Balances color temperature of flash to match ambient light
- High quality and rigid premium gels
- Easily clicks on and off the A1’s magnetic mount
- Can be stacked with other A1 modifiers
- Gels and gel holder stored in a compact hard case
The gels are made from premium materials that are rigid, durable and made to last. And they are stackable, so you can use them in combination with other light shaping tools like the Dome Diffuser, for example. All of which allow you to be more creative with light.
Gels help you to blend flash in a natural way with the ambient light like warm interior lights or warm sunlight. There are three clearly marked quarter, half and full CTO gels included to make the color temperature of the flash blend naturally with warm light which keeps flesh tones looking healthy and balanced instead of pale, for example. When shooting in fluorescent light there’s also a half green gel that reduces the risk of magenta seeping into your images.
The Grid Kit is a small and portable kit consisting of two grids that reduce the light spread to either 10° or 20°.
They can easily be fastened onto your Profoto A1 in just one click, thanks to the smart magnetic mount, and are also stackable with other A1 Light Shaping Tools to enable a diverse use.
With the Grid Kit, you can create a more direct and circular shape of light, helpful for creating accent or hair light, intriguing background effects or simply for controlling stray light.
