Profoto Unveils New D1 Air Monolights

Profoto D1 Air Monolight

Profoto USA introduces their new D1 Air moonlight system touting durable, tough, fast and consistent flash units suited for digital photography and demanding assignments. Among the D1’s important qualities: quick recycling time (0,1- 0,8 second), short flash duration (1/100th – 1/2600th sec), compact size (11.8” x 5.1”) and weight designed for portability (5.3 lbs).

Profoto explains that the D1 Air is fully digital, not just on the display panel, but in the flash output control circuitry as well. This is to ensure a consistency in flash-to-flash color temperature and flash energy, according to the company. The dual mode SMPS capacitor charging technology ensures the flash-to-flash precision which is essential for today’s photographer.

The Profoto D1 Air is available in 250, 500 and 1000-Watt versions.
