The Profoto B1 500 AirTTL Battery Powered Flash is a powerful off-camera flash that can be triggered with an Air Remote (not included), Pocket Wizards, or with the included sync cable. It comes equipped with a Lithium Ion battery that lasts approximately 220 full-powered flashes. The sleek battery allows for power cord-free shooting on location without the bulk of an external battery pack. Optionally, you can still use an included AC cable when you have easy access to wall power or use a spare battery while the first charges in 1 hour on the 4.5A multi-volt charger. You can fire off 20 flashes per second in Quick Burst Mode with this flash, which is ideal for lighting and capturing action. There is also a special Freeze Mode that delivers flash durations as fast as 1/19,000 of a second for capturing liquid sprays, bullets firing, and other super high speed effects. The power ranges from 2 Ws for just a relative hint of light all the way to 500 Ws, suitable for overpowering the sun. The Profoto B1 is a great option for photographers who can't be tied down to outlets and is ideal for sports, portraits, high-speed effects, and product photography lighting.
