About Profoto Acute2

Popular with fashion photographers for freely positioned, direct, and detailed light without harshness. Excellent for small interiors such as automobile photography, or table top applications. The ringflash fits all Acute2 and Acute generators, and is an entirely mobile source of light. The adjustable tripod mount bracket and wide interior (100mm diameter) allows for fitting all types of cameras and lenses in many formats.

Optional accessory reflectors expand the ringflash's capabilities further. Optional Softlight Reflector increases the light source, for fewer sharp shadows. Optional Close-up Reflector focuses the light source 20" (50cm) in front of the camera lens. With smaller objects, the effect is completely shadow-free.

Maximum charge is 9600Ws per minute, which equals four flashes per minute @ 2400Ws, 8 flashes @ 1200Ws, 16 flashes @ 600Ws, 32 flashes @ 300Ws, or 64 flashes per minute @ 150Ws.

Great Product

By

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

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

By

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.
