Is it a strobe? , is it a speedlight ?? no it's the new Profoto A1
With support for TTL and HSS , the flash is certainly capable in meeting the demands of working professionals . The Fresnel head , which houses a magnetic circular clip , can hold magnetically connected dome diffusers and filters allowing the A1 to basically work without any 3rd party accessories out of the box.
And if you fancy , the light also features a small LED modelling lamp which features a dual tone mixing array just below the main flash head .
With an output of 76Ws ,the lamp (according to many articles) is quite similar to the current Nikon and Canon speedlight offering , but the adaptability and the extra features (if you already own or plan to own a Profoto kit) will surely make this a tasty offering if you can digest the $995 asking price . (The flash is available for Canon and Nikon only) .
