Lucky me to have gotten my hands on the new Profoto A1 studio light. It is essentially a speed light but it is also so much more. Coming from using the Nikon Sb700 which is still a very powerful flash in and of itself, the Profoto A1 has the air system which works seamlessly across all my other Profoto gear. In this instance I used the A1 all by itself on camera throughout the day in The Texan out in Grapevine. I have to say I am very impressed with the quality of light and the battery life. Apparently it has the capability to shoot 350 full power exposures before you need a recharge. My favorite has been the spectacular use of TTL so I can spend my time focusing on the fun parts of photography over always manually adjusting throughout the shots. This is definitely a studio light on the go, and well worth the hefty price tag.
