According to a report on Lighting Rumours, Profoto might be getting ready to announce a new A10 speedlight next week. It’s possibly a replacement model for the company’s Profoto A1X, but with added Bluetooth support. This potentially allows it to utilise the Profoto AirX functionality that Profoto released a couple of months ago for the iOS app. At the moment AirX supports Profoto B10 & B10 Plus strobes and Profoto C1 & C1 Plus LED lights.
Profoto’s $1,095 A1X Speedlight is now available for Fuji
Profoto calls it “The world’s smallest studio light”. Most of the rest of us just call it the $1,100 speedlight. Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about the Profoto A1X. An update to the original $1,000 speedlight, the A1X has also proven to be a fairly popular light amongst Nikon, Canon, Sony and Olympus shooters. Thus far, though, Fuji users had been left out in the cold, at least on the hot-shoe.
No more, though. Fujifilm has announced compatibility with the new Profoto A1X AirTTL-F designed specifically for use with Fujifilm cameras. Support also comes for the Off-Camera Flash Kit, which includes the A1X AirTTL-F as well as the button-free Profoto Connect Wireless Transmitter.
Profoto just announced the A1X – A shrunken A1 with an inflated price
Building on the success and popularity of the A1, Profoto has just launched the A1X. It’s an improved and more powerful version of “the world’s smallest studio light”, and perhaps not surprisingly – it’s also a bit more expensive.
