Profoto introduced Profoto B10X and B10X Plus portable battery-powered strobe lights for photo and video. The lights are updates to the two-year-old B10 and B10 Plus lights, adding more power and new features. The continuous light output was increased 30% from 2500 lumen to 3250 lumens and the recycling speed is faster than the predecessors, the company said. The Profoto B10X is priced at $1,995, while the larger Profoto B10X Plus is $2,295.
The new Profoto B10X is the same size as its predecessor, weighing an identical 1.5kg (3.3 lbs) weight, and has the same battery life of 400 full-power flashes. The Profoto B10X Plus is slightly larger and weighs 1.9 kg (4.2 lbs), but has double the flash power (500 Ws). The lights have multiple triggering options and variable color temperature options.
