The Profoto D1 500/500 Studio Kit is fully digital, not just on the display panel, but in the flash output control circuitry as well. This to ensure a consistency in flash-to-flash color temperature and flash energy. The dual mode SMPS capacitor charging technology ensures the flash-to-flash precision which is essential for today's photographer. The 7 f-stop power range gives all the power the demanding photographer needs for creative freedom, to shoot with high speed and full open lens.
The D1 series is designed from Profotos philosophy of look, listen and touch. Controls are easy to use, freeing your mind, eyes and hands, so you can focus on the image you are creating. The unique built-in reflector gives you full control and minimizes stray light. It is designed for use with softboxes and umbrellas and for use with or without additional reflectors.
Short flash duration gives images a crisp feel and the fast recycling time means that you never have to wait for the flash. You will always get the image quality you want. All this in a package that offers 1/10 f-stop control, giving you the confidence that the images will be exactly as you want them.

This is a great setup for a range of uses. Most importantly (for me), it works in both the US + UK. Reliable, easy to set up and use.
They clean crisp and consistantly brilliant. Recycle time are through the roof. Love putting them up at vb and bb games to stop the action.
I've primarily been a speedlight shooter more because of portability and easy setup. I'd used plenty of different strobs, but these aren't just strobes. Easy to set and reset with plenty of power to over the power the sun or shoot at a much shallower depth of field.
