Profoto D2 shipment has arrived!
We have just received our first shipment of Profoto D2's. If you remember, Profoto announced the new and improved D1, called the D2. They combined some of the most desirable features of the B1 and packaged it in a monoblock designed for Studio use. I say that because it is AC powered but takes the traditional monoblock to new and exciting heights. It is similar in size, weight and output of the D1, but that is where the similarities end.
First of all the D2 can provide super quick flash duration up to 1/63,000 of a second compared to 1/2600 on the D1. The D2 can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. You might just have to buy a new camera to keep up with this amazing strobe! Now with the Profoto Air TTL transmitter, you can access Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to shoot with shutter speeds up to 1/8,000 of a second. These new features make it be perfect for dance, food and commercial photographers who want to capture their model in mid-air or splashing water flowing out of a glass etc.
The D2 can be fully integrated with AirTTL flashes like the B1 and B2. You can shoot with all flashes in TTL or manual mode or combine them as you wish. For example set the D2 in manual for the background and use the B1 or B2 in TTL as the main flash. HSS is available in both manual and TTL modes.
Come in and get yours today! Not ready to buy them? We now have them in rentals too.
