THE PROFOTO B2

To shoot with the B2 is to shoot with all options at hand.

Put the head on a bracket on your camera, the pack on your belt and stay moving. Or put everything on a stand and go off-camera.

Shoot with TTL. Or shoot in Hybrid Mode and switch from TTL to manual control with the settings intact.

Use it as a subtle fill light. Or crank up the power and take full control of the ambient light. Connect one or two flash heads. Use only the B2. Or sync it with one or several other B1 Off-Camera Flashes.

Shoot with a bare head. Or choose from the widest assortment of Light Shaping Tools available and shape the B2’s already beautiful light into any light you can imagine.

The Profoto B2

  • Patented AirTTL technology provides perfect exposure in a flash.
  • 500 Ws adjustable in 1/10 f-stop increments over a 9 f-stop power range.
  • Interchangeable, integrated battery provides up to 220 full-power flashes and tens of thousands at lowest power.
  • Patent-pending Profoto HSS is 10 times as powerful as your average speedlite.
  • Fires up to 20 flashes a second with flash durations as short as 1/19,000 of a second.
  • Designed for use with more than 150 Light Shaping Tools.
Speed

The B2 is fast and will easily keep up with your camera, shooting at speeds of up to twenty flashes per second.

Speed also equals short flash duration. With the B2, you will not only be able to capture the moment. You will also be able to freeze it in time with absolute sharpness.

Also note that the B2 has High-Speed Sync (HSS) functionality, giving you full control of the available light.

TTL

The B2 offers full TTL operation with both Canon and Nikon camera.

Canon shooters attache the Air Remote TTL-C to their camera’s hot shoe, Nikon shooters the Air Remote TTL-N. Then point and shoot and the B2 will automatically adjust its light output to provide you with the perfect exposure.

Light Shaping Tools

The B2 has a built-in reflector that creates a wide and even light spread that stands well on its own.

There is an assortment of compact and portable OCF Light Shaping Tools to choose from, including softboxes, grids and snoots. In addition, there is the entire family of Profoto Light Shaping Tools that have made Profoto the leader in professional photography.

Portability

The B2 is designed to help you to add a little or a lot of extra light wherever it is needed.

The entire B2 kits fits in a bag no larger than your average shoulder bag. And you will be surprised how lightweight it is.

Once on location, unpack the B2 and put it on your belt or shoulder, mount the head on a bracket on your camera, and stay moving. Either that or put both pack and head on a stand, and control the B2 wirelessly from your camera.
