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.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
CRAIG S  I was duped into this (used product purchase - Acute 1200e) by the salesman at Adorama. They told me it was the exact same power pack as the Acute 2 1200, but for $450 less. Turns out, this power pack only has 4 stops of power instead of the 6 stops of the new Acute 2 1200. Also, shame on me for not doing better research on the used product.
