Profoto A1 AirTTL-N + 1 Free Battery
The world's smallest studio light (for Nikon)
This is the A1
The A1 is every inch a Profoto light – just smaller. Its unique round head delivers light that’s both natural and beautiful with a soft smooth fall-off. And it’s incredibly easy 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.
Light that’s both natural and beautiful
Because we designed the A1 with a round head rather than the typical rectangular shape used by other on-camera solutions, the light it delivers is both natural and beautiful. That spread of light can also be easily adjusted from a wide setting, where the light has a soft smooth fall off to something narrower and more focused – with just a simple twist of the zoom ring on the head.
More than light
Being able to work with light is the key to creating better, more creative images. That’s why the A1 has a dedicated set of light-shaping modifiers that, thanks to a built-in smart magnetic mount, can be easily clicked on and off or stacked to help you achieve exactly the effect you want. These include a Dome Diffuser, Bounce Card, Wide Lens, Gel Kit and a Soft Bounce.
AirTTL means built-in convenience and versatility
With AirTTL you have a huge amount of built-in flexibility. TTL allows you to lock in the perfect exposure instantly, giving you far greater degree of control and a significantly faster workflow. It’s pretty much point-and-shoot; it’s easy, fast and precise. And the ‘Air’ feature means you can communicate with another A1 or other Profoto light seamlessly, and High-Speed Sync is right there when you need it.
Visualize your image with the modeling light
The A1’s built-in modeling light gives you an instant understanding of how light and shadow work together before you press the shutter, as well as providing an additional light source in low light situations.
No more worrying about battery life
The A1 has its own exchangeable Li-Ion high capacity battery pack 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.
Never miss a shot
The A1 can keep up because it recycles four times faster than most on-camera solutions – that’s every 1.2 seconds at full power. Put simply, you’ll never miss a shot.
Less time learning means more time shooting
We designed the A1 to be uncomplicated, so there’s no learning curve whatsoever. And because the interface is simple, clean and clear there’s no ‘death by menu.’ That means, you can spend more time engaged with your clients and creating a great image.
Grow with the A1
The A1 is a tool that can take your photography as far as you want to go. Adding a second A1 will open up even more possibilities. In addition to embracing and more powerful lights like the B1X and the B2 and the 120+ light-shaping tools available, it will open the door to a world of creative opportunities. Better still, with Profoto Academy you can access light shaping courses with hands-on tips and guidance from experienced and inspiring image creators.
