Profoto A1

The A1 is every inch a Profoto light – just smaller. It’s round head delivers light that’s both natural and beautiful with a soft, smooth fall-off. 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.

You can purchase the A1 in two different kits: the Profoto A1 which includes one flash, or the Profoto A1 Duo Kit which includes two flashes.


The Profoto A1 is designed with light shaping capabilities; it has a unique round head with a soft, smooth fall-off that makes it easy to create natural and beautiful light. The A1 also offers a built-in LED modeling light that makes it easy to set the light and understand how light and shadows work together.

And it’s extremely easy to use. 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 into the A1. With AirTTL and HSS you create professional results fast and easily and with the remote, you can seamless connect to other Profoto flashes and control them easily from the A1.

Profoto A1 is not only an on-camera flash, but it’s also very effective off-camera as a standalone unit. The A1 has its own Li-Ion high-capacity battery built-in 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. A1 can keep up with you because it recycles four times faster than other on-camera solutions – that’s 1.2s at full power. Put simply, you’ll never miss a shot.
