Profoto A1X Off-Camera Flash Kit for Nikon - Discontinued

Profoto A1X Off-Camera Flash Kit for Nikon - Discontinued


The Profoto A1X Off-Camera Flash Kit is the worlds smallest, portable studio light - delivering light thats both natural and beautiful with a soft smooth fall-off. The A1X AirTTL Off-Camera Flash Kit has been completely enhanced compared to its predecessor A1, with a much powerful battery that gets you 450 full power flashes instead of 350, an extremely fast recycling time of 1.0s instead of 1.2s; all to provide you with light shaping excellence wherever you go.

Being a powerful and AirTTL means versatility and convenience; enabling you to immediately lock into the perfect exposure, with a better experience and control to achieve a faster workflow; and with the Air feature you are able to communicate with an additional A1X or any other Profoto light seamlessly.

Included is the Profoto Connect Trigger simply described in one word: simplicity. The trigger features absolutely no buttons, dials or menus; however, it just has three setting to it being: auto, manual and off. This is ideal for professional photographers when wanting to use the flash off the camera, to be more creative. When setting it to auto you can simply just point and shoot to achieve perfect exposure in every shot captured; or set it over to manual this is where you can fine-tune the light accordingly to fit your required style. All settings can be controlled in the Profoto app by a simple swipe; such as increase or decrease the flash power.

Powerful 76 Ws output, compact, and easy to operate

Featuring a 76 Ws output, the Profoto A1X speedlight is more powerful than a conventional speedlight/flashgun; and with compact dimensions, and low weight of only 560g (with battery), it is much easier to carry and operate than battery powered studio lights.

Li-Ion battery powered. Up to 450 full power flashes

The Profoto A1X is powered by an included Li-Ion battery that provides the A1X with up to 450 full power flashes instead of 350 flashes than its predecessor. The battery is UN-certified so you can take it on a plane.

1/20,000 flash duration, High-Speed Sync up to 1/8,000th and 0.05-1.0s recycling time

The combination of both a fast sync speed and short flash duration on the Profoto A1X enables users to freeze almost any fast-moving subject, while a fast recycling time helps ensure that your flash is ready to fire at a moments notice, being much faster than the Profoto A1.

Versatile zoom and included wide lens - Covers 14-105mm

The zoom on the Profoto A1Xs Studio Light head covers full-frame focal lengths from 32 to 105mm, and the included wide lens provides coverage from 14 to 24mm.

Wireless capabilities: Built-in trigger/transmitter capable of triggering other Profoto heads

An Integrated AirTTL remote control and receiver enables the Profoto A1X speedlite to trigger other A1X units or AirTTL compatible studio lights such as the D2, B1X, and B2.

Magnetic mount and compatible with various light modifiers

Thanks to a magnetic mount, light modifiers can be easily clicked on and off or stacked. The A1X comes bundled with a dome diffuser, flash stand, wide lens, nylon bag and bounce card. Optional light modifiers include a gel kit and soft bounce.
