Offering twice the power than its predecessor the B1, the Profoto B1X 500/500 AirTTL 2-Light Location Kit is a battery-powered twin monolight kit that’s designed to give you power and flexibility on the go. Key features include:
- (2) Profoto B1X 500 AirTTL Battery Powered Monolight
- (2) Profoto Li-Ion Battery Mk II for B1 / B1X 500 AirTTL
- (2) Matthews 7ft Reverse Stand
- (2) Profoto 41-inch Shallow Silver Umbrella
Based around the extremely popular Profoto B1X 500 AirTTL Battery Powered Monolight, this 2-light on location kit offers 80% brighter LED modeling lights, batteries with 50% greater capacity (325 full power flashes), and High-Speed Sync that’s able to use the full 9-stop power range. To ensure you’ll have enough juice to keep you shooting, we include an extra Lithium-Ion Spare Battery for each strobe (4 batteries total).
For supporting the strobes, we’ve chosen two Matthews 7ft lightstands for their compact size and reasonably high load capacity. Rounding out the simple kit are a pair of 41-inch shallow silver umbrellas.
Supports TTL Air Remote. The B1X 500 AirTTL offers full TTL support when matched with one of the Profoto Air Remote TTL Transceivers for Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Fuji, or Sony. Please note that these are separate rental items.
Triggering Options. This strobe has a built-in Profoto Air radio receiver, allowing it to be triggered by either of the TTL remotes above. You can also use the Profoto Air Remote Transceiver if you’re comfortable with manual power adjustment. You’ll get 300 feet of range when triggering in TTL mode, and 1,000 feet with normal radio triggering. Additionally, there’s a 1/8-inch mini-sync input if you prefer using a sync cord, as well as built-in optical slave.
