Profoto AcuteB 600 Flash Generator

Profoto has introduced its AcuteB 600 battery flash generator, boasting that this”breakthrough product is a lot of flash in a very small package.”

Measuring 7.5 x 7.5 x5 inches and weighing 10.8 pounds, the AcuteB 600 generates 600 W of energy, which can be controlled over a seven f/stop range down to 9 W in 2/10 step increments. Profoto claims up to 160 full-power flashes per battery charge.

“At full power, the f/stop at 2 meters is 64.2 when using a Magnum 50-degree reflector; recycle time is 0.09-2.6 seconds,” the company said.

To match the AcuteB 600, Profoto also announced the AcuteB Head which weighs 3.2 lbs. and includes a 65-watt Halogen modeling lamp, and the ProRing 2, a ring flash that generates 2,400 W and also has a 200 watt modeling lamp.
