Profoto announces the A1X – the world’s smallest studio light

More than 30 updates have been made, which include a more powerful battery, faster recycling and Sony compatibility

The new Profoto A1X offers up to 450 full power bursts per charge (that’s 100 extra than its predecessor, the A1) a one-second recharge time, as well as a 20-channel Air Remote with HSS and Air TTL. Smaller in size than the Profoto A1, the A1X is now the world’s smallest studio light.

To help ensure images are lit perfectly, you can take advantage of its TTL mode to allow your camera to calculate the perfect exposure, and it also has a flicker-free modelling light built in to the head, which allows you to see how the light will fall when half pressing the shutter. Full manual control is also an option for those who want to fine-tune the exposure, and it features a large high resolution display for easy navigation of settings.

For those who want even more control over lighting, the design of the A1X features a magnetic click-on mount, allowing you to attach dedicated light-shaping tools, which can be used on its own or in combination. The range includes a grid kit, dome diffuser, wide lens, gel kit, bounce card and soft bounce.

The Profoto A1X is available in Sony, Nikon and Canon mounts, priced at £949.
