Profoto Announces B1X 500 Air TTL Flash

By on

Profoto Announces B1X 500 Air TTL Flash and continues to grow the OCF line. The B1X 500 Air TTL Flash is designed to give even more versatility with a longer battery life, more range in HHS and a brighter modeling light.

The beauty of the B1X is how it allows photographers to just shoot what they imagine, removing the restriction of cords, power, and even sync speeds.

The B1X improves on the B1’s LED modeling light by making it 80% brighter which will help when you are working in the sun or if you need help focusing in very low light, the CRI has also been increased to give nicer color rendition in your BTS videos.
