5 Important Advantages and Benefits for users

1. On or off-camera flash

The Profoto B2 head is small and light enough to be put on a bracket on your camera. Do either that or put it on a monopod or stand. The choice is yours. Both solutions have their advantages but are equally convenient.

2. With TTL

The Profoto B2 offers full TTL operation with both Canon and Nikon cameras. Canon shooters attach the Air Remote TTL-C to their camera’s hot shoe, Nikon shooters the Air Remote TTL-N. Then point and shoot, and the B2 will automatically adjust its light output to provide you with the perfect exposure. It is as easy as it sounds.

3. With portability

The Profoto B2 is designed to help you to add a little or a lot of extra light wherever it is needed. The entire B2 kit fits in a bag no larger than your average shoulder bag. Where and how you shoot is all up to you.

4. With speed

At full power, the Profoto B2 will recharge in 1.35 seconds. At lower power settings, it will produce up to 20 flashes per second, eliminating the risk of missing that perfect shot waiting for the flash. Also note that the B2 has High-Speed Sync (HSS) functionality, giving you full control of the available light.

5. With light shaping

The built-in reflector on the Profoto B2 head creates a wide and even light spread that is beautiful on its own. But that is only the start. In total, more than 150 tools are available to choose from. With the B2, light shaping is easy and limitless.
