There are no professional strobing system serious enough to create lights for smartphones, until today, Profoto shows the world how it is done, with the C1 series.

Smartphone photographers all over the world have one thing in common. They are chasing perfect light in order to capture the perfect image. And now there is a solution that will help them – regardless of time and place. The Profoto C1 series contains the very first studio lights for smartphones. They are small, super-portable and provide the one thing a smartphone can’t – natural-looking and beautiful light.

The light the C1 product range delivers is natural-looking and beautiful with a soft, gentle fall off, and that’s partly because of the shape – each light is round, like the sun, and they are incredibly easy to use.

The Profoto C1 Plus and C1 allow users to have fun, to play with light. They’re easy to move around and explore different angles from the palm of your hand, and you can capture the image from either a click on the little white button on the light or from your smartphone.

The C1 Plus is compatible with a range of light shaping tools from a dome diffuser to colour gels and grids which means you can be even more creative. Same as the ones for the Profoto A1 and A1X. They snap on and off the invisible magnetic mount in an instant. And if you want to switch out the smartphone for a DSLR or mirrorless camera, the C1 Plus is compatible with all Profoto AirTTL remotes. Meaning you can use several of them at the same time, and in combination with other Profoto lights.
