Almost half a century worth of experience was put into designing the D1 – an unprecedented tool that pushes the boundaries for what can be expected of a professional monolight.
Available in 250, 500 and 1,000Ws versions and boasting a generous 7 f-stop power range, action-stopping short flash durations, and color stability comparable with that of many high-end studio generators, the D1 proves that superior performance can be delivered in a compact and affordable package.
Professional photographers today need durable, tough, fast and consistant flash units suited for digital photography and demanding assignments. Profoto is well known as the world leader in electronic flash technology. Our 40 years of experience in developing state-of-the-art flash units is built in to the design of the the new D1 Air.
The Profoto D1 Air is available in 250, 500 and 1000 Ws versions. The Profoto D1 Air is fully digital, not just on the display panel, but in the flash output control circuitry as well. This to ensure a consistency in flash-to-flash color temperature and flash energy.
The dual mode SMPS capacitor charging technology ensures the flash-to-flash precision which is essential for today’s photographer. The 7 f-stop power range gives all the power the demanding photographer needs for creative freedom, to shoot with high speed and full open lens. The D1 Air series is designed from our philosophy of look, listen and touch. Controls are easy to use, freeing your mind, eyes and hands, so you can focus on the image you are creating.
