For a photographer, every new day is a new challenge. Will it be a portrait, sports, fashion or something else completely? And no matter what that day brings, it must always end the same way – with a great shot. Dealing with these pressures takes experience, talent and speed. The sort of speed you’ll find in the Profoto D2 Studio Monolight , the world’s fastest monolight. You can shoot in super quick bursts, you can freeze action with absolute sharpness and sync with the fastest shutter speeds with HSS and TTL.

So, no matter what you’re shooting, you’ll deliver every time. Because with the Profoto D2, you’re always up to speed.

Follow a week in a photographer’s life at:

Freeze the moment

The D2 can provide super quick flash durations up to 1/63,000 of a second. Shoot a splash of water and it will be frozen in mid-air – a photographic work of art.

Catch the moment

The D2 can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. That’s fast enough to catch the best of any moment. Ask your subject to jump and you’ll have 20 mid-air exposures to choose from.

Control your surroundings

Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to shoot with shutter speeds up to 1/8,000 of a second. Use HSS to shoot with large aperture in bright conditions or to freeze action with absolute sharpness.

Shoot with ease using TTL

Point-and-shoot in TTL Mode. Switch to Manual Mode and control the light with intuitive buttons and menus. Forget about the flash and focus on the light.

Overpower any light

The D2 packs enough of punch to overpower the available light in almost any situation. Its power is also a blessing when shooting at larger distances or when using larger Light Shaping Tools.

Grow with speed

It has the speed to set you free, and the power for you to be at your best. It’s an integrated part of the extensive Profoto system. Go full speed ahead with the D2.

There are those amongst us who push the envelope. They say, “good is the enemy of great.” If there’s a limit – they step beyond it. If there’s a boundary – they cross it. For the great photographers, challenges are there to be conquered. And for them, speed is more than the ability to freeze a moment of action or matching the fastest camera shutter. It’s about setting creativity free. Moving fast, delivering fast, capturing the seemingly impossible – fast. Taking light, and shaping something remarkable with it. Setting the bar higher – and then doing it all over again. They redefine their craft every single day. And so do we. This is speed redefined.
