Is the Profoto D1 bad with Profoto modifiers?
Jul 2, 2012


I was interested in the Profoto D1 system but one of the BH Photo guys said the D1 is not as good with the modifiers such as beauty dish as the other heads in the Profoto system. He said even with the dome it was not that good. He said D1 was good with softboxes.

I was planning on getting the D1 or Acute 600-B portable system with free lamphead. I have a Vagabond Mini so it is possible to run the D1 off that if necessary.

Does anyone have any experience with D1 using the Dome? How is the quality and how does it compare with the other Profoto lampheads when using the beauty dish etc? Is it the same?
