Profoto A1

Billed as the World’s smallest studio light, the Profoto A1 is actually a hotshoe-mountable 76Ws flash with a round head, high-speed synchronisation and a recycling time of 1.2sec. Thanks to a smart magnetic mount built into the head, light shaping tools and modifiers can be clicked on and off quickly and easily. The flash also has a zoom function that allows you to make fine adjustments to the spread of light by simply twisting the zoom ring on the head, and for accuracy it has a built-in modelling light. The user interface is simple and intuitive with a large high-contrast display at its centre. The A1 has its own Li-ion high capacity battery built-in which lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries with no performance fade. The flash is available in Canon and Nikon versions (with a Sony variant coming in 2018), and offers AirTTL and Air Remote compatibility for off-camera use. The Profoto A1 can be preordered for $995.
