Light that’s both natural and beautiful

Because Profoto designed the A1X with a round head rather than the typical rectangular shape used by other on-camera solutions, the light it delivers is both natural and beautiful. That spread of light can also be easily adjusted from a wide setting, where the light has a soft smooth fall off to something narrower and more focused – with just a simple twist of the zoom ring on the head.

Often in crowded and chaotic locations, it’s difficult to shoot with big bulky lights in tow. So Ruby hit the streets to complement the existing light with the natural and beautiful light from the small, lightweight and compact Profoto A1X.

More than light

Being able to work with light is the key to creating better, more creative images. That’s why the A1X has a dedicated set of light-shaping modifiers that, thanks to a built-in smart magnetic mount, can be easily clicked on and off or stacked to help you achieve exactly the effect you want. These include a Dome Diffuser, Bounce Card, Wide Lens, Gel Kit and a Soft Bounce.

AirTTL means built-in convenience and versatility

With AirTTL you have a huge amount of built-in flexibility. TTL allows you to lock in the perfect exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. instantly, giving you far greater degree of control and a significantly faster workflow. It’s pretty much point-and-shoot; it’s easy, fast and precise. And the ‘Air’ feature means you can communicate with another A1X or other Profoto light seamlessly, and High-Speed Sync is right there when you need it.

Visualise your image with the modelling light

The A1X’s built-in modelling light gives you an instant understanding of how light and shadow work together before you press the shutter, as well as providing an additional light source in low light situations.

No more worrying about battery life

The A1X has its own exchangeable Li-Ion high capacity battery pack that lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries with no performance fade, and a facility to recharge quickly. So you can shoot for longer with confidence.

Never miss a shot

The A1X can keep up because it recycles four times faster than most on-camera solutions – that’s every 1 seconds at full power. Put simply, you’ll never miss a shot.

Less time learning means more time shooting

Profoto designed the A1X to be uncomplicated, so there’s no learning curve whatsoever. And because the interface is simple, clean and clear there’s no "death by menu". That means you can spend more time engaged with your clients and creating a great image.

Grow with the A1X

The A1X is a tool that can take your photography as far as you want to go. Adding a second A1X will open up even more possibilities. In addition to embracing and more powerful lights like the B1X and the B10 and the 120+ light-shaping tools available, it will open the door to a world of creative opportunities.

What's the difference between A1X and A1?

The A1X and A1 are siblings. The similarities are many, but the A1X has a little more of everything. A more powerful battery, faster recycling and an updated user interface.

The only difference between the A1X, its predecessor A1 and every other studio light Profoto makes is size – it’s small enough to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, making the A1X and A1 Profoto's only true on-camera solutions.

The A1X delivers a quality of light that’s both natural and beautiful because, like the larger Profoto lights in the family, the A1X features a round head that gives a soft smooth fall off – that’s what makes the light feel so wonderfully natural.
