RENTAL ONLY - Profoto D2 Duo 500/500 AirTTL 2-Light Kit
With the D2 Duo 500/500 AirTTL 2-Light Kit, Profoto offers two advanced high-performance 500Ws monolights with power cords and a padded case. At 0.03-0.6 sec, the D2 is almost twice as fast as its predecessor and capable of 20 flash per second bursts. Other features include wireless TTL with the separately purchased Air Remote TTL-C for Canon and TTL-N for Nikon, compatibility with Profoto Control and Profoto Camera apps , action-freezing flash durations and High Speed Sync support up to 1/8000 sec.
Profoto D2 500Ws AirTTL Monolight
Having wowed us with the introduction of the battery-powered TTL B1 and B2 flash heads, Profoto does it again with the AC-powered D2 500Ws AirTTL Monolight. Building on the foundation of the popular D1, this light maxes-out the D1 performance specs while adding wireless TTL from the B1 and B2. With the D2, "speed" is the operative word.
The D2 500 recycles to full power in 0.6 seconds, almost half the time as the D1 500, and in Freeze Mode, achieves flash durations as short as 1/63,000 of a second, outperforming most studio pack systems. That's good news for special effects photographers and sports shooters. It can also shoot bursts of 20 flashes per second, so you're sure to capture peak action or several versions of it. In addition, the D2 also supports High Speed Sync up to 1/8000 of a second for photographers who want to stop action or use wide apertures with full ambient light control. The 10-stop power range gives ample choices to achieve your objective.
Besides super-fast operation, the D2 shortens your shooting time with on-board TTL compatibility. Pros who formerly turned their noses up at the term "point-and-shoot" as amateurish will learn to love this technology. Simply set your lights up, set the camera to TTL and shoot. The first shot is nearly always a keeper. The key to this control is the optional Air Remote TTL-C (for Canon) or TTL-N (for Nikon). Operating on 2.4 GHz bandwidth, the wireless transmitter, really a controller, has 8 frequency channels and with 6 groups and a range of up to 330' for TTL triggering and 1000' for normal triggering. Each channel has power ratio capability of +/- 2 stops. If you prefer to use manual, you have 10 stops of power variation.
The D2 also features an enhanced, intuitive LCD screen display, as well as full compatibility with Profoto Control and Profoto Camera apps, making your life much easier by streamlining the lighting process through your iPhone or Android device. Modeling Light, Ready Indicator, Mode, Sync, Channel, and Group are easily selected through the Settings button. The display even flips around the way your iPhone does in case you're working with the head upside down or hanging it overhead. The D2 has a self-seeking multi-voltage (100-240) power supply for worldwide use, too. Profoto has covered so many features on the photographers wish list that you'll wonder what they can come up with next.
Catch the Moment
The D2 can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. That's fast enough to catch the best of any moment. Ask your subject to jump, and you'll have 20 mid-air exposures to choose from.
Freeze the Moment
The D2 can provide super quick flash durations up to 1/63,000 of a second. Shoot a splash of water, and it will be frozen in midair.
Shoot with Ease Using TTL
Point-and-shoot in TTL mode using the separately purchased Air Remote TTL-C (for Canon) or TTL-N (for Nikon). Switch to Manual mode and control the light with intuitive buttons and menus.
Overpower Any Light
The D2 packs enough punch to overpower the available light in almost any situation. Its power is also an advantage when shooting at longer distances or when using larger light shaping tools.
Control Your Surroundings
Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to shoot with shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second. Use HSS to shoot with a wide aperture in bright conditions or to freeze action with absolute sharpness.
Profoto Bag S Plus for D2 Monolight
The Bag S Plus for D2 Monolight from Profoto is a padded nylon carry case with zippered closure, touch-fastener joining handles, and a removable shoulder strap. It fits three D2 heads horizontally, or two D2 heads with domes and protective caps.
Profoto Air Remote TTL
Maximize the potential of your AirTTL-equipped flashes through the use of an Air Remote TTL-C from Profoto. This powerful remote provides you with an outstanding set of features, including support for wireless power control and TTL, including high-speed sync, with Canon cameras. Operating on a 2.4 GHz frequency, the Air Remote can sync with flashes up to 1000' away with normal triggering and 330' with TTL. TTL is useful because it offers automated shooting and exposure and brings the advantage of high-speed sync, enabling the use of shutter speeds up to 1/8000 second. Also, the controller has 8 channels and 3 groups, ensuring minimal interference with other nearby systems and equipment. Each group can be controlled independently from one another, permitting ±2 EV adjustment of power ratios for TTL systems and nine stops of manual control. You have access to remotely turn on/off the modeling lights or heads, making it easier to adjust lights in your studio. Additionally, there is a mini-USB port for installing firmware updates and it runs on just two AAA batteries.
