‘World’s small­est stu­dio light’ launched

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

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.
