Profoto B2 AirTTL Off-Camera Flash Location Kit Review

Mike Hagen (Mike_Hagen)


Keywords: profoto, lighting, flash, remote, ttl

Profoto asked me to review their new Profoto B2 off-camera flash system so I put the B2 AirTTL system through its paces shooting some outdoor portraits and photographing kids playing on a trampoline.

The Profoto B2 250 AirTTL Location Kit.

For this test, I used the Profoto B2 250 AirTTL Location kit, Profoto OCF light shapers, a Nikon D750, the Nikon AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8, the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, and the Nikon 85mm f/1.8 AF-S.

Here’s a video I put together for the Profoto B2 AirTTL OCF system:

 

I currently own a set of Profoto D1 Air studio strobes and think that Profoto makes some of the best studio lights on the market today. The B2 flashes take the Profoto technology and shrink it down into a small, battery-powered location kit that you can take just about anywhere. Like everything else in the Profoto lineup, the build quality of the B2 system is top-notch. Also, the quality of light is excellent when used with the OCF (off-camera flash) light shapers.
