The latest in the Profoto line of finely designed sources of power for photography. This unit is compatible with Acute and Acute 2 heads as well as the Pro-7 Plus flash head. It features 4 separately controlled outlets for heads, a built-in radio receiver offering reliable wireless sync from up to 300m away, and an 8 f-stop power range to enable subtle lighting effects. Please note that using older Pro-3, Pro-5, Pro-6, PF, PB, or Pro-7 heads may result in overheating due to slower fan speeds in these units.

Profoto D4 Air 1200 Power Pack: Key Features

The D4 Air is a versatile workhorse, crafted to produce large quantities of high-quality images at an extremely high rate and with no variations in power output or colour temperature. It does not offer the extremely short flash durations the Pro generators do, but compensates for this by featuring four independent outputs, controlled by four individual knobs. In other words, working with one D4 is like working with four separate flash packs.

  • Capable of producing very large quantities of images at an extremely high rate
  • Very stable light output and colour temperature guarantees absolutely consistent results, shot after shot after shot
  • Four independent outputs, controlled by four individual knobs, allow for both small and large setups with a single generator
  • Wide 8 f-stop power range with precise control in 0.1 f-stop steps
  • Unique features such as sequence, delay and interval settings make tricky lighting setups simple
  • Wireless sync and control with the Air system
