Profoto A1

The worlds smallest studio light

Bringing the technology of the Profoto battery powered lighting system to an on-camera flash form-factor. The A1 is incredibly versatile, combine it with other Profoto lights or use it on-camera for wedding or event photography.


• Circular zoom-able head creates a beautiful natural looking light
• Built in Air Remote to integrate with other Profoto Air flash units
• The same AirTTL and HSS as the rest of the Profoto range
• Smart magnetic clip-on light shapers including gels
• Rechargeable and swappable battery; 350 full power flashes per charge

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.

Battery power you can rely on

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.

Modeling light with power and quality

A powerful LED modeling light enables you to preview your shot and evaluate how light and shadows falls on the subject. The power and quality of the modelling light also makes it very useful as main or fill light in low light situations.
