The Profoto A1 AirTTL-C Studio Light for Canon is an innovative blending of a standard on-camera flash gun with a battery-powered portable strobe. With a long-lasting rechargeable battery and a simple, sleek build, the A1 aims to give photographers a feeling of having a studio everywhere they go. The built-in Air Remote allows you to use this A1 as a transmitter, even for other Profoto lights, like the Profoto B2 and the Profoto B1 (see Notes for more on triggering). The 76W/s output, tactile dials, and huge LCD readout screen all help to position the A1 as the very best tool for events. It has a round head – unusual for a flash gun-style light – which produces natural-looking results with soft, gradual falloff. The no-fuss magnetic click-on mounting system allows you to throw on the included light shaping tools quickly and easily. This little light recycles at an astonishing 0.05-1.2 seconds and supports an X-Sync mode that will keep up with continuous shooting up to 20 FPS. The Profoto A1 AirTTL-C Studio Light for Canon is a must-have for wedding photographers and is also a great choice for travel portraits, street photography, and events of all kinds.

  • • This A1 light has a built-in Air Remote for communication with other Profoto flash heads, including the Profoto B2 and the Profoto B1. It can act as a transmitter for these other lights when attached to your Canon camera. To shoot an A1 off-camera, you must have another on-camera A1 to act as a transmitter or rent an Air Remote. "Air" must be turned on for the A1 and all flash heads must be on the same channel.
  • • The A1 can be an on-camera light source and a transmitter at the same time. If you do not want light to be emitted while using your A1 as a transmitter, you can deactivate the flash without turning off the unit. To do this, press and hold the MODEL button.
  • • Though this unit is for Canon cameras, it will fire from any camera brand with a hot shoe that features a central position sync contact (which is common). You will only be able to use the A1 in full manual mode without TTL or High Speed Sync compatibility when pairing this flash with non-Canon cameras. Experiment at your own risk.
  • • The A1 is not compatible with Canon Speedlites and they will not trigger each other correctly.
  • • There is no sync port on the A1 so you will not be able to connect it with third-party transceiver remotes.
  • • The A1 does not accept AA batteries or any battery packs other than its included battery, which takes approximately 80 minutes to fully charge and lasts for approximately 350 full-powered flash pops.
  • • The A1 uses a magnetic click-on mount for light shaping tools (see Rental Includes tab). It is not compatible with other modifiers.
  • • Max Power: 76W/s
