What’s cool about the New Profoto B2 OCF?

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The B2 Off-Camera Flash system — consisting of a battery pack and a head — is lighter, more portable than the B1. As for being ‘cool’, that’s just for starters.

Both the pack and head can be put on a stand and the B2 can be wirelessly controlled from the camera. This makes B2 the world’s first off-camera flash that can be used both on and off-camera.

In addition, the B2 has all the benefits that made the B1 an outstanding success. It has TTL. It has HSS. It is fast enough to keep up with your camera and five times as powerful as the average speedlight. It can be used with the entire range of Profoto Light Shaping Tools. All this in a head with the same size and weight as a speedlight.

The Profoto Off-Camera Flash system also includes the new smaller, lighter OCF Light Shaping Tools — including four new softboxes, a new Grid Kit, a new Snoot and a new Barndoor.

  • complete TTL compatibility when using the “Air Remote” for Canon or Nikon
  • speeds up to 20 flashes per second
  • HSS allows you to shoot at super fast shutter speeds
  • can be used “on camera”
  • super fast flash duration
