Like all Profoto lights, the A2 is easy and intuitive to use; you’ll go from box to first flash in record time. Yes, it comes with an instruction manual, and no, you probably won’t have to bother reading it.
With AirX connectivity built-in, you can use the A2 as a part of a more extensive Profoto lighting system, and you can shoot with any camera, including a smartphone. In addition, enjoy the freedom of choosing where you adjust all settings. Either via the user-friendly large display on the flash or the Profoto Control app – it’s up to you.
The creative possibilities become almost endless when you combine the A2 with the Profoto Clic System – a series of light shaping tools bespoke to A-series flashes. Factor in the Clic OCF Adapter II, and then suddenly Profoto’s entire range of OCF light shaping tools are available to use as well.
More than anything else, this is a creative tool. It exists to help the ambitious photographer capture striking and beautiful images anywhere, anytime. Making the Profoto A2 a must-have light for image creators who want to push the limits of what’s possible on location.
