Profoto heads are as practical as they are elegantly simple. All Acute2 and Acute heads accept the same modular light shaping tools. The basic Profoto Acute2 modular flash head design features a circular, heavy duty, Quartz flash tube and UV coated protection dome that surrounds both the flash tube and the standard 250-watt modeling light. It provides even illumination and maximum light output. All lamphead cables feature Profoto special connectors for arc-proof performance and the ultimate in reliability. All heads are also supplied with a 5/8' stand adapter to mount the units to any standard light stand.

Acute2 units take advantage of the mini-can bases modeling light, which is standard with professional lighting systems. Using this standard bulb is an advantage to any photographer who travels, as they are readily available in a variety of voltages for use all over the world.

Acute2 heads produce a color temperature of 5400 degrees Kelvin standard. There are other options that are also available by replacing the protection dome with a more heavily coated dome. There is an additional dome available that offers additional warming in a 300-degree increment, for a color temperature of 5100 degree, or uncoated dome which gives a 300-degree colder light.

Great piece of Profoto!

Great Product


from Phoenix Az  -  Professional

I had tried to save money by getting an Alien Bees powerpack and ringflash, but after 2 days I decided to sell it and get the Profoto. The Profoto Powerpack is very well built, compact and works great.


Worth the money


from Phoenix Az.  -  Professional

I had originally prchased the alien bees zeus ring flash, but it was plastic, flimsey, so I sold it after 2 days and bought the profoto ringlight. This one is very nice, all metal, made very well and looks professional.

Fantastic light, cumbersome to use


from Tiverton, RI

The quality of the light is truly superb, but you have to put up with a device that is fragile to transport, and which is a bit complex and informally designed in the way that it attaches to your camera. I think that you can fit it to almost anything - that's true - but it always a little "hokey". And be aware that there are limits to how fast you shoot with it, especially at high power settings. To get a better feel for this product, download a copy of the user's manual from the non-US Profoto website.
