Compact, powerful and versatile, the new Profoto A10 has a lot to offer.
When the Profoto A1 and A1X were launched just a few years ago, the lights certainly broke new ground for the brand. Today, history repeats with the new Profoto A10 and there’s certainly plenty to admire.
Significantly, the A10 features Profoto’s AirX Bluetooth technology built in. As a result, for the first time ever, and in an unusual but perhaps ingenious move, users can make the most of a professional flash with a smartphone as well as a mirrorless or DSLR camera.
On this new step, Anders Hedebark, CEO of Profoto, comments: “This is a revolutionary innovation. Making professional flash available to smartphones has the potential to be ground-breaking.”
Other exciting features include HSS and AirTTL shooting. For the latter, when using the flash on-camera it doubles up as a trigger, controlling other Profoto flashes.
In terms of specs, the A10 has a max energy of 76Ws and a recycle time of 0.05-1 seconds, measuring in at 10.8cm tall weighing just 560g including battery. Users can expect up to 450 full power flashes per charge.
