Profoto A2 Launched


Profoto A2 new super-compact mono-light, and with the huge range of light shaping tools awaits you to discover a world of creative possibilities on the go.

Now the hugely popular B10-range has an even more compact sibling. Introducing the Profoto A2. Profoto’s smallest ever mono-light. It’s small, lightweight, and portable – about the size of a regular soda can. This is a light that you really can bring anywhere and everywhere. Throw it in your bag or a jacket pocket, and you’re ready to make the most of whatever location you might find yourself in. You could be shooting at a wedding, an awards ceremony, or in a restaurant – the Profoto A2 is perfect when space is at a premium and time is short.

Let’s take a quick look at the main features of the Profoto A2:-

  • Super compact size and light weight.
  • Powerful 100Ws flash and fast flash recycling.
  • Built-in reflector and lens
  • Fully compatible with all magnetic Profoto Clic Light Shaping Tools
  • Integrated AirX connectivity
  • Built-in LED focus/modelling light

Like all Profoto lights, the A2 is easy and intuitive to use; you’ll go from box to first flash in record time. And the A2 connects to the broader universe of Profoto products with AirX connectivity built-in. You can use the A2 as a part of a more extensive lighting system, and you can shoot with any camera, including a smartphone. Enjoy the freedom of choosing where you make adjustments to all settings. Either via the user-friendly large display on the flash or via the Profoto app.

However, more than anything else, the Profoto A2 is a creative tool. It exists to help the ambitious photographer capture striking and beautiful images. So, like all flashes in the Profoto range, the flash head is round, delivering light that’s natural and beautiful.

The creative possibilities become almost endless when you combine the A2 with the Profoto Clic System – a series of light shaping tools bespoke to A-series flashes. Factor in the new Clic OCF Adapter II, and then suddenly Profoto’s entire range of OCF light shaping tools are available to use as well.
