Profoto has once again set the benchmark for on location flashes. First with the ever popular B1, now it’s been set again with the launch of the new Profoto B1X. Profoto specifically states; “This isn’t an update, this is a significant replacement with improvements in three important areas; power, power and power. We want image creators everywhere to be able to realize their vision. If that’s halfway up a mountain, overpowering the sun in the middle of the desert or hanging off a rock overlooking the Mediterranean – then so be it.
That’s why the LED modeling light adds 80% more light output, the battery holds 50% more power and why the B1X has the widest HSS range available on any flash. Because we want you to have power in all the right places. And the most important place of all just happens to be your imagination.”
Watch as Marketing Project Leader Samantha Grönblad guide you through the B1X’s capabilities in the video above.

“The B1X is designed at the adventurous photographer who’s willing to go the extra mile. Whether that’s hanging off the side of a mountain or in the middle of a desert – this is no ‘stay-at-home flash’ so speed and simplicity is crucial.” – Marketing Project Leader Samantha Grönblad
