B&H Photo released the Profoto’s A10 Studio Light, which introduces AirX technology to its round-headed flashes for smartphone control. The A10 is available for Canon, Nikon, FUJIFILM, and Sony TTL systems, and each brand-specific model is also available as a bundle with its respective Profoto Connect Wireless Transmitter providing AirTTL and HSS functionality when shooting with the light off-camera.
The Profoto A10 shares its basic form factor and functionality with the A1X Studio Light, with its characteristic 2.75-inch round head. With 90-degree tilt and 360-degree rotation, it can be positioned in nearly any direction quickly and easily. The unit features include AF-assist, auto and manual zoom, and an LED modeling light for previewing lighting setups. HSS functionality and 1-second recycle times mean you never have to worry about missing a shot. It shares the same lithium-ion battery as the A1X, too, and offers approximately 450 full-power flashes per charge.
To activate AirX control of your light, you will need to download the Profoto App for iOS. An Android-compatible version of the app is currently in development.
