A1X

The A1X is every inch a Profoto light – just smaller.

Its round head delivers light that’s both natural and beautiful with a soft smooth fall-off. And it’s incredibly easy and to use, with superfast recycling and a long-lasting battery, so you’ll never miss a shot. On the move, shooting on-camera or off, this is light shaping excellence everywhere.

Key Features:

  • Round head with soft, smooth and natural fall off
  • AirTTL and HSS for a beautiful professional image fast
  • Smart magnetic click-on mount (patent pending) for A1X Light Shaping Tools
  • Dedicated A1X Light Shaping Tools available
  • LED modeling light integrated to the head
  • Air Remote built-in
  • Rechargeable and exchangeable Li-Ion battery
  • 450 full power flashes per charge
  • 1.0s recycling time

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.

Profoto Connect

This small, lightweight and carefully designed trigger is compatible with all Profoto AirTTL lights. But most of all, it makes working with the natural and beautiful light from Profoto incredibly easy, letting you focus onwhat’s important –creating great images.

Connect Features:

  • Button-free trigger for all Profoto AirTTL lights
  • Attach to your camera’s hot shoe to wirelessly connect camera and light
  • Three settings: Auto, manual and off.
  • Auto mode: Point and shoot with automatic flash power
  • Manual mode: Fine-tune the flash settings
  • Small, lightweight and minimalistic design
  • Smart connectivity with the Profoto app (compatible with iPhone 7 or newer)
  • Built-in rechargeable LiPo battery –30h battery life



With Profoto Connect, it’s never been easier to create natural and beautiful light anytime, anywhere.


It has no buttons and only three settings: auto, manual and off. In auto, you just point and shoot for a good exposure, because the flash power is calculated automatically. Slide it over to manual, and you can fine-tune the light for even more control, either manually or via the Profoto app. This makes the Profoto Connect the perfect trigger to start with, and to grow with.

Regardless if you’re experienced with created light or just stepping into the world of it, you now have natural and beautiful light on demand, and personalized for your needs.

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.

Lens Features:

  • 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.

Grid Kit

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.
