Outdoor shooting is related to decision-making. The most often it is an option: what equipment you have to take with you, and what to refuse.
For example, the speed at a wedding is important, so do not take a slow working device. And if shooting will be in a remote place, then to think how much you can take. In the end, it is always a compromise.
In September 2018, the Profoto B10 compact flash was introduced. And now the company announced a version that is slightly larger in size, Profoto B10 Plus.
Like the Profoto B10, the B10 Plus is very compact, it is comparable in size with a large lens. This means that it fits in the bag with the rest of the equipment. In addition, it is light and works without wires, so it is convenient to carry and install it anywhere.
Despite its compactness and light weight, the Profoto B10 Plus provides a powerful boost. The B10 Plus is twice as powerful as the B10 and ten times the power of a regular flash. At the same time, the quality of light fully corresponds to the Profoto high bar – it gives completely natural light with a soft decrease in intensity at a distance.
The B10 Plus flash is suitable for both photo and video. Working with it is very simple. It is a part of the wireless Air System, this allows it to be controlled remotely by all Profoto Remotes, including TTL support with select, supported camera systems. Built-in Bluetooth adds another layer by allowing direct control via the Profoto app for iOS. Access all settings and make adjustments on the fly with your smartphone.
With the B10 Plus, you can use the same rack adapter and battery as the B10. The adapter can be quickly removed to fix the flash on the camera or tripod. The battery is also replaced very quickly and can be charged while working.
The B10 Plus is fully compatible with the compact light, as it is a part of the OCF series family. Controlling the B10 Plus remotely is also very simple. This can be done with any Profoto Air Synchronizer from either the A1 or A1X flash.
In addition, the B10 Plus supports control through the Profoto application. It allows you to view and set all the flash parameters right on the screen of your smartphone, use the functions of creative shooting and download updates.
