Profoto has announced its latest generation of flash trigger, the Connect Pro supporting TTL in Nikon, Canon, Sony, Leica and Fuji versions, as well as a non-TTL version for everybody else. Like most flash triggers, it sits in your camera’s hotshoe for easy remote control of one or multiple flashes.

Up to six groups of lights (three with TTL) can be controlled by the Connect Pro through a large and intuitive user interface display, with 100 channels available to help ensure interference-free control and no conflicts with other nearby Profoto shooters.

The Connect Pro supports both the older generation Air 1 as well as Profoto’s more recent Air 2 protocols and even offers remote control using the Profoto Control app on your iPad, iPhone or smartphone. You can control all your settings remotely from the interface on your mobile device and then any changes made automatically reflect in the trigger. Equally, and changes made on the trigger also update on the app display.

Profoto says that the Connect Pro offers up to 100 metres (~330ft) of wireless control range and offers improved battery life over its previous trigger models using either alkaline, lithium or rechargeable AAA batteries.

The trigger locks into your camera’s hotshoe using a quick-release lever and there’s a power on/off button (which also doubles up as a test trigger button) on the side of the unit. All of your main control buttons and dials are easily accessible on the top of the unit below and to the left of the large OLED display.

The Profoto Connect Pro is available to pre-order now for $399 in Canon, Fuji, Leica, Nikon, Sony and Non-TTL versions.
