Profoto C1 Plus and C1: Specs, Price Release Date Announced

News

Profoto has announced two flash units that are small enough to be carried in a pocket and are designed for use with a smartphone. Of course, they can also be used with mirrorless and DSLR cameras, but as they can both be controlled by Profoto’s iPhone app, a smartphone is a natural partner.

With a diameter of 74mm  and height of 49mm, the C1 is the smaller and simpler of the two units. It also has a fixed diffuser dome whereas the C1 Plus has a detachable diffuser dome. The C1 Plus has a diameter of 79mm and a height of 37mm by itself or 64mm with the diffuser dome.

The Profoto C1 Plus is compatible with a range of ‘Clic Accessories’ including the supplied dome. These Clic Accessories include a 10-degree grid, 20-degree grid and a creative gel kit. 

As well the accessory compatibility, the C1 Plus distinguishes itself with a couple of simple controls and an AirTTL receiver built-in. This means that it can be triggered by the Profoto Connect and/or the Profoto A1X flash. It can also be used to trigger the phone camera.

Both lights have a tripod bush to allow them to be mounted on a tripod.
