Sharp dressed man Australian photographer Chris Colls lives and breathes fashion. Not only does he create fantastic pictures for commercial clients and magazines such as Grazia UK. He also wears fashion daily and so he was chosen as one of the best dressed in Australia a couple of years ago. – For me, Profoto is the Hedi Slimane of flash equipment: sharp, sophisticated and extremely well-designed, he says. The Pro-7a is the flash generator of choice in the Chris Colls studio, at home or rental. Except for its handsome looks, the Pro-7a brings him unsurpassed performance, such as flash durations down to 1/12000, recycling in 0.12–1.4 s and extreme colour and exposure stability. © Chris Colls

That’s sharp.

Light Shaping Tool system At the heart of Profoto lies the Light Shaping System. Over 120 light modifiers allow unprecedented creative control. The ProHead, Pro-B head and ProRing2 are fully compatible with the Profoto Pro-B3 generator and give access to all Profoto light shaping tools.



ProRing 2

In the studio, the standard heavy-duty tool is the Profoto ProHead with 250 W or 500 W halogen lamp, built for delivering flashes up to 4800 Ws, over and over again, hour after hour.

For even tougher demands, there is the Profoto ProTwin, with a fan-cooled head, that using two flash tubes, effectively doubles the performance of the ProHead. When used with a single generator, it produces shorter flash duration. Used with two generators, it enable up to 2x faster recycling speed and/or 2x higher power, up to 4800 Ws.

For fashion or other occasions when you want a direct and very distinct light, there is the Profoto ProRing 2. A ring flash, with a fan-cooled head, that is capable of as many 2400 Ws flashes per minute as the generator can produce, and also including a powerful 200 W modeling light.

The ProHead includes: the New Zoom Reflector, UV-safe flash tubes, 250 W or 500 W halogen lamp, removable frosted glass cover, protective transportation cap, stand adapter and a 4 m (13 ft.) lamp cable. 90 07 09 ProHead with 250 W model lamp and short glass cover 90 07 27 ProHead with 500 W model lamp and long glass cover

The ProTwin includes: Magnum Reflector, two UV-safe quarts flash tubes, 500 W halogen modeling lamp, removable frosted glass cover, protective transportation cap, stand adapter and a special 4 m (13 ft) long Twin Lamp cable. 90 07 19 ProTwin with Magnum Reflector

The ProRing 2 includes: circular quartz flash tube, 10x20 W halogen modeling lamps, camera adapter, stand adapter and a 4 m (13 ft) special lamp cable. Light spread angle: 75° 30 05 17 ProRing 2
