Profoto B10 Plus ($2,095) is twice as powerful as Profoto B10 and ten times more powerful than a speedlight, yet no larger than a typical 70-200mm zoom lens. The power to control and shape light in full sun can noww fit comfortably in your camera bag. Its built-in continuous light adds versatility for those who shoot both stills and video.
This 500Ws light has a 10-stop variable power range and swift recycle times of 0.05 to 2.5 seconds. Freeze Mode, which prioritizes flash duration yields a very short 1/50,000 second at minimum power. The B10 Plus is powered by a lithium-ion battery that gives you 200 full-power flashes on a 90-minute charge, while 60 minutes will top up the battery to 80% if you’re short on time.
B10 Plus retains TTL technology that takes advantage of your DSLR’s flash auto-exposure system and significantly shortens the time between inspiration and execution and capture. The path to this great feature is purchase of an optional wireless radio Air Remote TTL controller, which is currently made for Nikon, Canon, Fujifilm, Olympus, and Sony cameras.
The hot-shoe-mounting controller has eight channels and three groups, ensuring minimal interference with other nearby systems and equipment. Each group can be controlled independently from one another, permitting +/-2 EV adjustment of power ratios for TTL systems and nine stops of manual control. It can trigger the B10 Plus in manual mode at distances up to 1000 feet and in TTL mode up to 330 feet – the approximate length of a football field.
Profoto B10 Plus and the Air Remote TTL also support High Speed Sync with shutter speeds as quick as 1/8000 second to give the photographer complete control of background illumination or to allow use of wide apertures for creative work. There’s also a Profoto Smartphone App that allows you to capture well-lit images wirelessly with your phone.
Besides this multitude of features, the B10 Plus has an LED modeling light with the equivalent power of a 150W incandescent lamp that’s not only dimmable but has color temperature that’s variable from 3000 to 6500K. Its high CRI of 90-96 makes it usable for video. The battery will give you 75 minutes run time on full power.
Increased power, a small form factor, battery power, remote control, photo and video compatibility, and smartphone connectivity make the B10 Plus yet another impressive entry in the OCF roster.
