  • Replied in Profoto B1
    Ok, now that the air remote for nikon is out and in my hands, I can honestly say that these units are incredible. The TTL isnt perfect, but the fact that you can adjust it with the compensation ...
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    Other than a beauty dish, I have no plan to buy other modifiers. The wescott 7' umbrella with diffuser as been my main "softbox" for quite some time now.
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    I already bought them so nothing really. Im a bit dissapointed about the 300 charge cycle of the batteries, for something I will charge almost everyday, that means that after 1year the batt wont ...
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    Well, I was already 99% going with them but just wanted to see what other brands had to offer, so I went with 2 B1s. Got them this morning and sadly will only get the air for nikon next week so ...

    No one would be a D1 500 if you can get a B1 with AC for $400 more
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    the point is, you always rely on battery, if you runs out of spares its over. The einsteins can be used with both a mini OR ac
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    Pretty sure they confirmed somewhere that high speed sync or whatever they will call it is coming for the B1. Also, releasing a AC/DC converstion module would eat up some D1 sales I believe.
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    Paul C Buff said that he had something similar to the B1 on the drawing boards a few years ago and decided to go against it. He dislike the B1 because its a big speedlight and once the battery is ...
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    There isnt much beside the flashpoint unit and while they look nice on paper , I trust Profoto more about the real life performence. Broncolor may come up with something, but again it wont be ...
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    The head is tiny but you still have to lug around that battery pack. I already use C-stands so no worries here.
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    and you are still stuck with a battery/head setup. Thats by no mean the end of the world, but 90% of my stuff involve on location and im tired of my AB and vagabon setup. Not sure how (beside the ...
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    The lenght dosent bother me one bit, if its the "price" to pay to get rid of receivers/portable battery/extensions cords then so be it.  Broncolor may come up with something but I dont expect it ...
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    I dont think so, people who wants to buy profoto will still buy profoto because its profoto. Thats like saying the D1 would not sell because the Einsteins are cheaper, and pretty much any ...
  • Replied in Profoto B1
    this seems pretty cool, bonus point as I really dont care about TTL, I just want a self contained monolight and they alot cheaper.
  • Created discussions Profoto B1
    Any users of theses? Im strongly considering buying some of them, but id like to know if theres anything else similar? They are pricey as hell but I love the idea of a big 500w speedlight. I can ...
  • A piece of tape accidently fell on a filter and its seems like theres no way to remove it without damaging the filter with scratchs. Would something like WD40 be too strong? I tried with some ...
  • godamn this is amazing, while it sucks for the light polution, you can tell that the stars are TACK SHARP. Im kind of mad at me right now, because while I have some dark skies over here, its also ...
  • Replied in My D4 rebuild
    amazing ! yeah $679 isnt so bad, could live with that.
  • Replied in Tripods
    Yes thx for the tip, I used to work as a machinist so I know about locktite :)
  • I have a D800E, while its a totally different beast, I could live with it.
