Today Profoto announced Android compatibility with the Profoto Connect, offering seamless smartphone connectivity for all photographers – regardless of what smartphone they use.
On March 27, 2019, Profoto released Profoto Connect, the button-free trigger. At the time, iPhone users could enjoy the freedom to control light by a simple swipe on their smartphone
screen. Today, Profoto offers that freedom to all photographers – regardless of what smartphone they use. The Profoto Connect is a small, smooth and discreet trigger that you place on top of your camera to connect to the flash.
“When we sat down and talked with photographers, we recognized that all the buttons and menus you find on a typical remote trigger can seem a little complex, so we decided to get rid of them completely,” Albert Norelius, Profoto Product Manager, explains.
Instead, Profoto Connect simply has three settings; auto, manual and off. In auto mode, it’s just point-and-shoot, because a good flash exposure is calculated automatically when you press the shutter – enabling you to focus on the image and not the settings. If you would like a little more control of your light, you can slide the Profoto Connect to manual mode and creatively fine-tune it
in the Profoto app. That way you can achieve the exact lighting effect you want. Whatever purpose you might have with your images, the Profoto Connect offers you the freedom to create them easily and with seamless smartphone connectivity – now available for all photographers.
