Speed to Exceed: Profoto Reveals Pro-10, The World’s Fastest Studio Flash

By Shivani Reddy on September 21st 2016

This week at Photokina Profoto announced the D-2 Monolight, claiming to have created the ‘World’s Fastest TTL Monolight’ surpassing the power of the B1 with the offering of a 1000Ws version. They’ve somehow managed to exceed their own standard with their latest release.

Introducing Profoto’s Pro-10, a beast of a full-studio strobe with a breathtaking flash duration of 1/80,000th of a second and a staggering 2400Ws of power. Designed for the most creative and ambitious photographers in the world, Profoto consistently delivers incredible light shaping tools and the Pro-10 does not disappoint.

It puts the photographer in full control thanks to its intuitive design, bright display, and tactile controls. There are no creative boundaries when there’s no speed limit, and Profoto has done the seemingly impossible by redefining speed as a whole.

The perfect marriage of speed & power

Speed and power are both paramount for what you can do with a flash and Pro-10 sets a new benchmark for the combination of the two. It gives photographers groundbreaking speed with a recycle time of 0.02-0.7s while having a 2.4-2400Ws range of power.

Since she can’t claim “Serial Bingewatcher” as an occupation, she’ll settle for wedding/portrait photographer at Lin and Jirsa & marketing coordinator here at SLR Lounge. For those rare moments when you won’t find a camera in her hand, she will be dancing, eating a donut, or most likely watching Seinfeld.

    flash duration of 1/80,000 of a second and a staggering 2400Ws of power

    It sounds like you get 1/80,000 sec at 2400ws. That is certainly not the case. What is the power setting for 1/80,000 sec?

      I’m curious about this too. Looks like they are definitely aiming to set a crazy new bar either way.
