The A1 is every inch a Profoto light – just smaller. Its round head delivers light that’s both natural and beautiful with a soft smooth fall-off. And it’s incredibly easy and 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks to a smart magnetic mount built into the head, light shaping modifiers can be clicked on and off quickly and easily. Within seconds you’re working with the light, shaping it.
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.
The Soft Bounce for the A1 on-camera flash is perfect for creating a soft, flattering light, or in situations where there is no surface to bounce from, or if you’d like a more directional look than can be achieved by bouncing from a ceiling. Easy to handle, it clicks on to the magnetic mount and is stackable, so it can be used in combination with other A1 Light Shaping Tools.
A convenient pocket-sized protective hard case containing clearly labeled quarter, half and full CTO gels, plus a half green gel that helps to colour correct for interior light-bulbs. They are clicked on to the A1’s smart magnetic mount in an instant, and are stackable too so they can be used with other A1 Light Shaping Tools.
The Dome Diffuser gives the A1 on-camera flash’s light a softer and smoother character. Used indirectly to bounce off a surface it provides a gentle fill light on the subject. Used directly it provides a pleasing soft and crisp light. The Dome Diffuser clicks on and off the A1’s smart magnetic mount instantly and is stackable with other A1 Light Shaping Tools.
The Wide Lens allows the spread of light from the A1 head to be wider when using wide angle lenses. This helps the user to create a pleasing wide light that’s ideal for group portraits. It easily clicks and off thanks to a smart magnetic mount and it’s stackable, so it can be used in combination with other A1 Light Shaping Tools.
