Profoto Pro-11 Overview and Hands-On Review

With the introduction of the Pro-11 2400Ws AirTTL, Profoto satisfies the need for speed while continuing on a technical roll by giving Pros some exciting, advanced features. Yes, the two-outlet 2400Ws pack recycles in 0.02 to 0.7 seconds, is capable of quick bursts up to 50 flashes per second, and has a super-short minimum flash power of 1/80,000 second for the ultimate in action-stopping whether your subject is dance, fashion, or splash shots. The power range boasts 11 stops (2.4-2400Ws) and selectability in full or 1/10 stop increments on its high-resolution display.

Now for the special part. While the Pro-11 revisits integrated TTL and is fully compatible with the optional Air Remotes TTL-S/N/C/F for Sony, Nikon, FUJIFILM, and Canon, which allow wireless TTL and exposure compensation at distances up to 330′ in TTL mode and up to 1000′ in manual mode. It also heralds smartphone connectivity! Not only can you can you channel the Pro-11’s updates through the phone and control the pack wirelessly with it, but if the spirit moves you, you can take a photo with the phone! As Profoto’s product manager puts it “The connectivity between cameras, lights, and apps will define how professional images will be created going forward.” It kind of makes you wonder when Profoto will stop. The answer is: apparently never.
