Profoto adds power
First came the B10 – now Profoto has unveiled the B10 Plus
Profoto’s B10, launched in 2018, set new standards for battery-powered studio flash, with an expansive feature set, good power delivery and great portability making it perfect for location shooting.
Now, Profoto has taken the B10 concept further with the B10 Plus Air TTL, which has twice the amount of power, with a 500Ws output that is controllable in 0.1EV steps across a 10EV range. A fully charged battery gives up to 200 full-power flash bursts and a cell can be recharged in 90 minutes.
A built-in 2500 lumens LED light for modelling or video shooting can run continuously for 75 minutes and this can be colour temperature controlled within a 3000-6500K range.
The B10 Plus is fully compatible with Profoto’s Air Remote triggers. Add the Air Remote TTL or use the Profoto A1 or A1X and you have the option of wireless TTL and HSS flash features with a working range of up to 100 metres.
A single B10 Plus head costs £1795 and a Duo kit is £3595.
