Profoto A1X AirTTL-S Studio Light for Sony


The Profoto A1X AirTTL-S Studio Light for Sony is an innovative blending of a standard on-camera flash gun with a battery-powered portable strobe. At this time, it pairs only with select Sony cameras: a99 II, a9, a7R II, a7R III, a7S II, a7 II, a7 III, and a6500. With a long-lasting rechargeable battery and a simple, sleek build, 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, like the Profoto B10 250W/s AirTTL Battery Powered Flash. The 76W/s 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 0.05-1 second and supports an X-Sync mode that will keep up with continuous shooting up to 20 FPS. The Profoto A1X AirTTL-S Studio Light for Sony is a must-have for wedding photographers and is also a great choice for travel portraits, street photography, and events of all kinds.


  • • The A1X for Sony is compatible only with the follow cameras (as of this writing):

  • a99 II
  • a9
  • a7R II
  • a7R III
  • a7S II
  • a7 II
  • a7 III
  • a6500

  • • This A1X 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 A1X off-camera, you must have another on-camera A1X to act as a transmitter or rent 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.
  • • The A1X is not compatible with other Sony flashes 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 (see Rental Includes tab). 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.
