About Profoto Acute2R

Identical to the Acute2/1200 generator, but with integrated radio sync receiver (32 channels/4 zones). Works with LPA PocketWizard Transmitters and dedicated Sekonic Flash Meters.

Similar to the Acute2R 2400, the 1200 offers even faster recycling time, shorter durations in a smaller package. It includes power and synch cords.

This generator is based on the Profoto Acute2 and is identical in every way with one exception: the Profoto Acute2R has a PocketWizard Digital Radio receiver built-in, to give the photographer *Digital Wireless Freedom.

Fully compatible with all 32 channels used by PocketWizard, the Profoto Acute2R eliminates the need for a synch cord and separate PocketWizard receiver. With an effective range of up to 300 feet, the Profoto Acute2R can be fired using any model PocketWizard transmitter or transceiver. You can also use the Sekonic L-358 or L-608 light meters, with the PocketWizard transmitter enabled, to fire the generator.

In order to maintain the simple elegance that Profoto is known for, the Profoto Acute2R has no buttons or switches to set when selecting a channel. Simply turn the generator on and the system is put into "Learn" mode. The first PocketWizard signal it receives, it remembers. To reset, just turn the generator off, then on again and repeat. This simple approach eliminates any learning curve for the photographer. The Acute2Rs are available in both 1200 and 2400 w/s versions. (The original Acute2 units without the PocketWizard receivers remain as part of the Acute product line.) The Profoto Acute 2 and Acute2R packs offer fast recycling times and very short flash durations. As with the Profoto Acute 2, the Acute2R also includes a fully proportional modeling light and a white-light slave that can be turned off.

Even though these generators take advantage of the latest technology, they are still fully compatible with previous model heads in the Profoto Acute series. The modeling lights however, will remain at full-power since the original Acute units had no control at the generator. As with other Profoto products, all Profoto Light Shaping Tools are fully interchangeable.

These upgraded generators maintain the small size and convenient footprint of their predecessor, with a substantial improvement to performance and function. Faster recycle times & shorter flash durations combine with proportional modeling lights to offer the "pro on the go" a location package that is perfectly suited for all applications.

Of course, the Acute2R generators are fully compatible with all older Acute style heads, and the heads are backwards compatible with older Acute generators as well. As always, all Profoto heads work with all Profoto light shaping tools.

Long awaited for and Amazing!


Love it! lives up to billing and more. Love the recycle time, weight, size and accuracy ..... to say nothing about control of power.


Consistent performer!


It's my second acute. It works great with my current one. Consistent and excellent color. It's pricey but worth every penny.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Hi there.. Just wanna ask about Profoto Acute2R 1200 Generator (1200Ws) .. can it be used as a battery pack..? And if yes, how many flashes it can give at full power? Thanks .!!
DAVID N  Hi, it can't be used as a battery pack. You'd need a generator in order to use this away from electrical outlets.
Shopper  Thank you David.! I thought this is a generator.. Can you please give me an advice which generators of profoto can be used away from electrical outlets.. ? Is there any cheap ones. . ? How about Hensel or Elinchrom .?
Andrew R  Profoto D.C. powerpacks and heads may be found here: What you want to be looking for are kits that, at the very least, offer the option for DC power (i.e., battery packs)
