Profoto A1X Air TTL

The Profoto A1X Air TTL Sony is every inch a Profoto light – just smaller. Its unique round head delivers light that’s both natural and beautiful with a soft smooth fall-off. And it’s incredibly easy to use with superfast recycling and a long-lasting battery, so you’ll never miss a shot. On the move, shooting on-camera or off, this is light shaping excellence everywhere.

The Profoto A1X has a unique round head with a soft, smooth fall-off that makes it easy to create a natural and beautiful light. It also includes a smart magnetic mount and dedicated Light Shaping Tools that click on and off quickly and easily. They can be stacked for more creative options. The A1X also offers a built-in LED modeling light that makes it easy to position the light and understand how light and shadows work together.

The user interface is large, clean and clear. Like all Profoto products, it’s intuitive to use and you don’t need to read a long instruction manual to understand how it works. AirTTL remote is also built in to the A1X. With AirTTL and HSS you create professional results fast and easy and with the remote you can seamless connect to other Profoto flashes and control them easily from the A1X.

Profoto A1X is not only an on-camera flash, it’s also very effective off-camera as a standalone unit. The A1X has its own Li-Ion high capacity exchangeable battery that lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries with no performance fade, and a facility to recharge quickly - so you can shoot for longer with confidence. And the A1X can keep up with you because it recycles four times faster than other on-camera solutions – that’s 1.0s at full power. Put simply, you’ll never miss a shot.

Light that’s both natural and beautiful

Because Profoto designed the A1X with a round head rather than the typical rectangular shape used by other on-camera solutions, the light it delivers is both natural and beautiful. That spread of light can also be easily adjusted from a wide setting, where the light has a soft smooth fall off to something narrower and more focused – with just a simple twist of the zoom ring on the head.

More than light

Being able to work with light is the key to creating better, more creative images. That’s why the A1X has a dedicated set of light-shaping modifiers that, thanks to a built-in smart magnetic mount, can be easily clicked on and off or stacked to help you achieve exactly the effect you want. These include a Dome Diffuser, Bounce Card, Wide Lens, Gel Kit and a Soft Bounce.

AirTTL means built-in convenience and versatility

With AirTTL you have a huge amount of built-in flexibility. TTL allows you to lock in the perfect exposure instantly, giving you far greater degree of control and a significantly faster workflow. It’s pretty much point-and-shoot; it’s easy, fast and precise. And the ‘Air’ feature means you can communicate with another A1X or other Profoto light seamlessly, and High-Speed Sync is right there when you need it.

  • HSS or High-Speed Sync, enables you to use flash at any shutter speed up to 1/8,000 of a second. That means you are in full control of the ambient light, which is useful when shooting outdoors in sunlight. With HSS you can shape light even with large apertures and at fast shutter speeds. HSS is great for outdoor portraits with shallow depth of field or freezing fast action in broad daylight. Profoto HSS is a fast, powerful and more consistent HSS solution.

Visualize your image with the modeling light

The A1X’s built-in modeling light gives you an instant understanding of how light and shadow work together before you press the shutter, as well as providing an additional light source in low light situations.

No more worrying about battery life

The A1X has its own exchangeable Li-Ion high capacity battery pack that lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries with no performance fade, and a facility to recharge quickly. So you can shoot for longer with confidence.

Never miss a shot

The A1X can keep up because it recycles four times faster than most on-camera solutions – that’s every 1.0 seconds at full power. Put simply, you’ll never miss a shot.

Less time learning means more time shooting

We designed the A1X to be uncomplicated, so there’s no learning curve whatsoever. And because the interface is simple, clean and clear there’s no ‘death by menu.’ That means, you can spend more time engaged with your clients and creating a great image.

Grow with the A1X

The A1X is a tool that can take your photography as far as you want to go. Adding a second A1X will open up even more possibilities. In addition to embracing and more powerful lights like the B1X and the B10 and the 120+ light-shaping tools available, it will open the door to a world of creative opportunities.

The only difference between the A1X, its predecessor A1 and every other studio light from Profoto's range is it's size – it’s small enough to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, making the A1X and A1 part of their on-camera solutions.

The A1X delivers a quality of light that’s both natural and beautiful, because like the larger Profoto lights in the family, the A1X features a round head that gives a soft smooth fall off – that’s what makes the light feel so wonderfully natural.



Profoto Connect TTL Remote with Bluetooth

With the Profoto Connect TTL Remote with Bluetooth for Sony it’s never been easier to create natural and beautiful light anytime, anywhere. You get a wireless connection with AirTTL lights that controls flash sync, remote control, Auto TTL, and HSS. The transmitter also controls flash sync and remote control in Air lights.

It has no buttons and only three settings: auto, manual and off.
In auto, you just point and shoot for a good exposure, because the flash power is calculated automatically. If you find the automatic flash exposure too bright or too dark, you can fine-tune it in the Profoto app* by a simple swipe. It can also be adjusted directly in your camera if it has the "Flash Exposure Compensation" function (sometimes known as "FEC").

Slide the Connect over to manual, and you can fine-tune the light for even more control, either manually or via the Profoto app. Regardless if you are just stepping in to the world of created light, or if you are already experienced in light shaping, you now have natural and beautiful light on demand, customizable to your needs.

By downloading the Profoto app and with Bluetooth connection, you can control your lights wirelessly as well and upgrade your firmware later through the app. The Connect works on a frequency of 2.4 GHz and up to eight channels with an operating range of a 300m when using it with normal sync flash and remote control, and 100m with Auto TTL and HSS. The built-in lithium-ion polymer battery has a battery life of 30 hours and is rechargeable via the included USB cable. Additionally, the transmitter powers off after 60 minutes of inactivity.

This small, lightweight and carefully designed flash trigger is compatible with all Profoto AirTTL lights. But most of all, it makes working with the natural and beautiful light from Profoto incredibly easy, letting you focus on what’s important – creating great images.

*The Profoto app is available for iPhone 7 and later, running on iOS 11 and later. This app is required for full control of the Profoto Connect and for making firmware upgrades.
