The Profoto A10 is an upgraded version of the Profoto A1X on camera flash that features their new Bluetooth enabled technology AirX. This means that you can download new firmware for your A10 wirelessly via the Profoto app. Even better, you can both capture and control the A10 using your smartphone. So from now on you can unleash the full power of the A10 no matter which camera you use, making Profoto A10 a truly future proof product.
The Profoto A10, like its siblings, is designed with built-in light shaping capabilities. It has a round head that gives a natural light spread with smooth fall off, and thanks to the smart magnetic mount you can be creative with the full range of Profoto “Clic” light shaping tools. “Clic” light shapers can easily be stacked for more creative options. It also offers a built-in LED modeling light that makes it easy to position the light and understand how light and shadows work together.
Like all Profoto products, the Profoto A10 is intuitive to use and you don’t need to read a long instruction manual to understand how it works. The user interface is large, clean and clear. AirTTL remote is also built in, and with AirTTL and HSS you can create professional results. With the remote you can seamlessly connect to other Profoto flashes and control them easily from the A10.
The Profoto A10 is not only an on-camera flash, it’s also very effective off-camera as a standalone unit. The A10 has its own Li-Ion high capacity exchangeable battery that lasts up to four times longer than AA batteries with no performance fade, and a facility to recharge quickly – so you can shoot for longer with confidence. And the A10 can keep up with you because it recycles four times faster than other on-camera solutions – that’s 1.0s at full power. Put simply, you’ll never miss a shot.
