The B1X improves on the B1 in three important areas; Power, Power and Power! This is perfect for the on-location photographer who’s ready to set their creativity free and break boundaries!

New Features Includes

• increased modeling light power

• increased powerful battery

• A widely extended HSS power range

The B1X features a new LED modeling light which adds 80% more light output while increasing color rendering (CRI) beyond 90. The additional power and improved color rendering makes it even more useful as an on-location modelling light, whilst also becoming an extremely efficient main or effect light, helpful to enhance natural light in dull conditions.

 


Profoto B1X Power In All The Right Places

It’s not unusual for shooting days to go long, so it is great with a battery that can do the same. The new battery pack holds an impressive 50% more energy with no extra size or weight. It also fits existing B1’s and B1 chargers. Last but not least the B1X introduces the same HSS power range as in normal flash mode – 9 f-stops for all compatible cameras! That makes it the widest HSS range available on any flash so it’s even easier to shape light with flash in all light conditions including sunrise, broad daylight and sunset.

The extended HSS power range will be offered as a free upgrade. From May 15th both existing B1 owners and new B1X owners will be able to download and install this upgrade free of charge from My Profoto.

The on-location photographer shoots everything from e.g. action, portraits to weddings.

The challenges of shooting on-location are many and this sets the requirements for the lighting gear: it needs to be easy to bring, it needs to be fast to set-up and it needs to be able able to handle tricky lighting situations and still deliver excellent result to the customer. These photographers are in need of very reliable products that offers flexibility, ease of use, are reliable and that can go the extra mile for when there is no access to AC mains.

OCF Zoom Reflector and OCF Magnum Reflector

To power up the B1X further, Profoto launched two new reflectors that are compact in size yet add lots of punch and direction to overpower the sun. The OCF Zoom Reflector is so portable it even fits into the B1 case while mounted on the B1 or B1X – making it a handy timesaver when packing up. Despite this remarkably compact size it adds up to 1.2 f-stop of effective light output at two meters range! The slightly larger OCF Magnum Reflector adds almost 2 f-stops effective light output making it perfect for throwing light over long distances without being overpowered by natural light. It is not compact enough to fit into the B1 cases but comes delivered in its own protective case. Both reflectors also offer a wide beam angle adjustment range that extends light shaping opportunities further.
