About Profoto D1

The Profoto D1 Air 2 Head Studio Kit includes 1- D1 Air 500W/s monolight, 1- D1 Air 1,000W/s monolight, 2- 30" white umbrellas, 2- 8.0' light stands, a 10 degree grid and an Air Remote for wireless triggering. It all fits in the included Studio Kit Bag.

No stone has been left unturned in the provision of tech and convenience features that seem to derive from professional photographers' wish lists. Beneath the sleek matte-black, high-impact polycarbonate finish and highly visible LED readout is strobe design that is digital from the ground up. The 7 stop power range breaks down to 1/10 stop increments providing flexibility, precision and consistency, made possible by dual mode SMPS capacitor charging.

A built-in 77 degree reflector (5.12" diameter) maximizes case space and is ideal for umbrella and softbox use. Features that we've come to expect from Profoto over the years: short flash duration, rapid recycling, a bright 300W modeling lamp and heavy-duty cabling are all on-board.

Profoto Air System technology replaces the sync cord, allowing the head to be remotely triggered from as much as 1,000' (300 m) away using the included Air Remote transceiver. The Air Remote provides 8-channel triggering via hot shoe or mini plug, as well as full-function head control over 8 channels in 6 distinct groups. Additionally, D1 syncing and complete functionality can be wirelessly controlled via your PC or Mac by using Profoto's optional Air USB and Studio Air systems.

Modeling lamp operation is user-selectable: On/Off/Proportional and Free (manual). There is also a selectable flash confirmation (dimming) feature in addition to an audible, fully-recycled tone. The D1 is compatible with the full line of widely-acclaimed Profoto light-shaping tools. Finally, the self-sensing multi-voltage circuitry allows you to take the D1 anywhere in the world.

Wow. People who have made this kit must be really clever. Everything fits in the bag, total weight is exactly 24kg, the exact weight and dimensions to be allowed in a plane. You have everything in one bag to do any kind of shooting, anywhere, anytime.
