Quick to Set Up. Easy to Use.  

The B1X is a fully cordless light with simple, intuitive controls and a large easy-to-read LED display. So instead of tripping over cables or fiddling with sub menus or user manuals, you can focus on being creative.


Capture the Moment With AirTTL 

Finding the right exposure the first time can be a challenge when time is limited or the light is constantly changing. AirTTL automatically does it all for you, just point and shoot. 


Shape Light in Broad Daylight with HSS 

No matter how bright the sun shines, Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to use your flash at shutter speeds up to 1/8000s. Overpower the sun and shape your light even with large apertures in broad daylight.


Battery Power You Can Rely On B1X’s Rechargeable 

Lithium-ion battery provides up to 325 flashes at full power and tens of thousands at lowest power. And it recharges in no time. 


Modelling Light with Power & Quality

A powerful LED modelling light enables you to preview your shot and evaluate how light and shadows fall on the subject. It is also useful as main or fill light in low light situations. 


Explore Your Light Shaping Potential

Photography is all about controlling and shaping light. With the B1X it is easy to take your creativity to the next level with our dedicated range of compact, lightweight OCF Light Shaping Tools.
