Just amazing! :)"I bought the Profoto D2 Duo 500Ws kit! I am so glad I did! This is a top-quality product!
Very simple to setup. It is important to register online on Profoto website, then do the firmware update with the provided USB cable, the instructions are too very simple and clear to follow.
I bought this product for many reasons:
1- Color temperature stability, +-20k at any given power, +- 140 k over the whole range of power. That's amazing! It is of a great help in a productivity environment where you need to do a lot of batch processing.
2- Using High Speed Sync it is +- 1000k, but this is not a big deal since this is the way it works with High Speed Sync for the majority of other brands too.
3- Extremely quick from flash to flash recharge.
4- The huge number of accessories available.
5- It can be used too anywhere outside without available power outlets if you buy the Profoto BatPac 230V EU that offers plenty of power, as an example 600 flashes with 500 Ws, and thousands of flashes if you're not using full power. Well, it weights 11.2 kg, but it not a big deal to me.
6- Air Remote TTL-N (in my case for Nikon)
7- Air USB dongle to take control wireless of Profoto Air flashes from Mac or PC. It is working with the free Pro Studio 3.1 software as a free download. Can work with Capture One Pro.
I agree, it is not cheap! But you pay for what you have: well-thought design and very professional! I took a long time before taking my decision to buy it, I analyzed a lot the competition that can well deserve too lower budgets, but I at the end I always came back to Profoto, and since I now have this Profoto D2 kit 500 Ws, I know I will not regret my choice at all. It is just the perfect choice for me, because it meets all my professional needs. This product will really put a smile on your face."
