PROFOTO B1 500 AIR TTL (W/CANON REMOTE) Features

Shape Light Efficiently with the Profoto B1 500 AirTTL

The Profoto B1 500 AirTTL is a professional monolight flash that's designed to focus on speed, power, and light shaping capabilities. Because of its intelligent design and no-cable-or-cord feature, this flash is easy to set up and convenient to carry around. It's built with durable polymer and equipped with a number of features, including an integrated 77-degree reflector, built-in receiver, and intuitive controls. What sets this model apart from the D1 is its TTL camera/flash integration and battery power.

To fully experience this Profoto flash, our kit includes the Air Remote TTL-C. This transmitter is designed for Canon DSLRs that operate on a 2.4GHz bandwidth and has eight frequency channels. You also get to extend the range from 330 feet to 1,000 feet depending on the type of triggering you choose. If you wish to update the firmware of the TTL-C and B1 500, both units have mini-USB connectors that allow you to directly plug it into your computer.

Key features include:

  • Durable polymer housing
  • Built-in 77-degree umbrella reflector
  • Lithium-ion battery
  • Oversized and balanced handle
  • Optical, IR, and radio compatibility
  • Digital LCD readout
  • Full-line light-shaper compatibility

Utilize Reliable Controls & Batteries

The Profoto B1 has similar features as the D1: durable polymer housing, a built-in receiver, integrated 77-degree reflector, and intuitive controls and display. Because of its integrated umbrella sleeve and scale of zoom, the B1 is compatible with the brand's various umbrellas, softboxes, and reflectors. This monolight flash also has two unique qualities -its TTL camera/flash integration and battery power.

Point-and-shoot cameras are usually just an alternative option for professionals, being chosen only if they have back-to-back shooting jobs. With the B1, you can add the Air Remote TTL-C transmitter onto the hot shoe easily and set up your lights. Its Lithium-ion battery provides up to 220 full power flashes and thousands of minimum power flash when charged for two hours using the 2.8A multi-voltage charger. With the optional 4.5A quick charger, you can also shorten the charging time to an hour.

Maximize the Profoto B1's Capabilities with the Air Remote TTL-C

To fully experience the capabilities of the Profoto B1, a great addition to use is the Air Remote TTL-C. An exemplary set of features can be utilized with Canon cameras, including wireless power control support, TTL support, and high-speed sync. The remote operates on a 2.4 GHz frequency and can sync with flashes that reach 330 feet with TTL and 1,000 feet with normal triggering. Using the TTL feature, you can perform automated shooting and exposure, along with experiencing high-speed sync that reaches up to 1/8,000-second shutter speeds.

The Air Remote TTL-C complements the B1 with its eight channels and three groups that minimize interference with other systems nearby. You can control each group independently, which allows nine stops of manual control and ± 2 EV adjustment of power ratios for TTL systems. To easily adjust the lights in your studio, the modeling lights or heads can be turned on or off remotely.

Furthermore, the TTL-C runs on two AAA batteries and features a mini-USB port so you can install firmware updates. When you get a free update from the Profoto website, the B1 and the TTL-C acquires High-Speed Sync (HSS). This useful feature syncs flash and shutter speeds that are shorter than the average duration, which allows you to manipulate ambient light and freeze action. Its technology enables it to produce fast flash pulses that activate the HSS Mode with the press of a button.

Adjust Flash with Three Distinct Modes

The Profoto B1 500 AIR TTL has three distinct modes you can choose from. Normal Mode allows you to perform 1/1,000 seconds of flash duration at maximum power and 1/11,000 seconds at minimum, which enhances the color temperature across its range. The Freeze Mode, on the other hand, offers short-duration flash, which delivers 1/19,000 seconds at minimum power and 1/1,000 seconds at maximum -enough to capture water droplets. In Quick Burst Mode, the Profoto B1 enables you to perform flashes at a faster rate. With this mode, you also experience recycles in 0.1 to 1.9 seconds and deliver up to 20 flashes per second.

To reduce the strain on the battery, this flash uses an LED which offers an equivalent 70W output of a halogen bulb. The fuel gauge-type LEDs of the battery also make it easier for you to monitor the remaining power. For its back panel, the Profoto B1 is equipped with an upgraded 1.4 by 2.5-inch LCD screen that indicates the modeling light mode, sync choice, and power level of the flash, among other features.
