This is the A1

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 a natural and beautiful light. It also includes a smart magnetic mount and three dedicated A1 Light Shaping Tools that click on and off quickly and easily – a Dome Diffuser, Wide Lens and Bounce Card. They can be stacked for more creative options. 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 in to the A1. With AirTTL and HSS you create professional results fast and easy 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, 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.

Get natural and beautiful light, quickly and easily

Profoto A1

The only difference between the A1 and every other studio light we make is size – it's small enough to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, making the A1 our first, true on-camera solution.

It delivers a quality of light that's both natural and beautiful, because like the larger Profoto lights in the family, the A1 features a round head that gives a soft smooth fall off – that's what makes the light feel so wonderfully natural.

Learn three creative ways to use your A1

The Profoto A1 is incredibly easy to use, either on its own or in combination with multiple flashes. What that really means is, wherever in the world you are you'll have all you need to take your creativity to the next level.

Shoot with the A1 on-camera

Shooting a beauty portrait with warmth and depth is easy with the A1 on camera. Use a CTO Gel to bring the warmth and a Dome Diffuser to smooth, soften and shape the light, ensuring the skin tones are always natural and beautiful. Combine that with the ease of use TTL brings, and you achieve a perfect exposure fast and easily. Find out all about the ingredients of a truly fabulous beauty portrait.

Shoot with the A1 off-camera

For an image to feel as natural as possible use one A1 positioned off-camera just to the left from a high angle. This creates a beautiful fill light that creates shadows that are soft and gentle. To achieve the effect, use a stand or a good friend to assist. The photographer also used a CTO gel here for the warm feeling and a Dome Diffuser to soften the light.

Shoot with the A1 as a part of a system

This portrait was created with the A1 in combination with other Profoto lights and it's easier than you think. Two light sources were needed to achieve this look, one A1 used on camera with a Dome Diffuser and one Profoto B1X equipped with an OCF Beauty Dish from right. A simple setup yet a striking result. Find out how the fast recycling time of the A1 captured the dress and discover the huge creative possibilities with the A1 on-camera acting as a remote connecting with other Profoto lights.

Magnetic modifiersA1 Light Shaping Tools
