Designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, Profoto C1 and C1Plus deliver beautiful light on the go. Their round shape mimic the sun and create a soft fall-off. Their wide color range creates colors that can match any light conditions from dusk to dawn. And the built-in reflector and dome diffuser create natural shadows.

Profoto C1 and C1Plus are so tiny they fit anywhere – even hidden inside your image. Or use it hand-held to easily play around and explore different angles. Adjust the color temperature to add a golden or cool light, mixing it with the ambient light or adding a contrasting color. Bring in dramatic shadows or go for a brighter natural feel. You can even use several lights together. The Profoto C1 offers lots of creative possibilities.

The Profoto C1 Plus allows you to be a bit more creative as it’s compatible with Profoto’s C1Plus light shaping tools such as color gels, grids, and dome, giving you limitless creative possibilities. The light shaping tools click on and off in no time with the C1 Plus’s magnetic mount. Use it hand-held to easily play around and explore different angles or put it on a stand or arm with the built-in thread mount. You can even use several lights together.
