‘World’s smallest studio light’ launched
PROFOTO has launched its first- ever on- camera lighting solution. The A1 is available in Nikon and Canon mounts but other mounts are due to be released next year.
Described by Profoto as the world’s smallest studio light, the A1 resembles a flashgun. It has an impressive specification. Its lithium ion battery lasts up to four times longer on a full charge than AA batteries, with no power fade. The recycle time is also four times faster than other oncamera solutions, enabling a full-power shot every 1.2 seconds. One of the most distinctive features of the A1 is its circular lens, which the company says helps to produce a more natural look, with natural light fall- off. Designed to be easy to use straight from the box, the A1 has a large, high- contrast display in its centre. It can also be used off- camera, and as part of multi-light set- ups. Available now, the Profoto A1 costs £849.
