Profoto A1X AirTTL-C Studio Light (Canon)


The Profoto A1X AirTTL-C Studio Light for Canon is in every way identical to its predecessor, the A1, but with a few key enhancements: 450 full power flashes (vs the prior's 350), a faster full power recycling time of 1 second (vs 1.2 seconds), 20 wireless channels (up from just 8), and an updated interface that matches the sleek Profoto B10 250W/s AirTTL Battery Powered Flash.

Providing an innovative blending of the standard on-camera flash gun with a battery-powered portable strobe, the A1X aims to give photographers the feeling of having a studio everywhere they go. The built-in Air Remote Transceiver allows you to use this A1X as a transmitter, even for other Profoto lights. The output, tactile dials, and huge LCD readout screen all help to position the A1X 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 speed and supports an X-Sync mode that will keep up with continuous shooting up to 20 FPS. The Profoto A1X 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 A1X light has a built-in Air Remote for communication with other Profoto flash heads, including Profoto flash heads from the B1 and B2 series. It can act as a transmitter for these other lights when attached to your Canon camera. To shoot an A1X off-camera, you must have another on-camera A1X or A1 flash to act as a transmitter or use an Air Remote. "Air" must be turned on for the A1X and all flash heads must be on the same channel.
  • • The A1X 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 A1X 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 A1X 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 A1X is not compatible with Canon Speedlites and they will not trigger each other correctly.
  • • There is no sync port on the A1X so you will not be able to connect it with third-party transceiver remotes.
  • • The A1X 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 450 full-powered flash pops.
  • • The A1X uses a magnetic click-on mount for light shaping tools. It is not compatible with other modifiers. The A1X magnetic click-on mount system is compatible with the original A1's magnetic mount and their accessories are interchangeable.
