Profoto unveiles the ‘world’s fastest monolight’ at Photokina 2016.
The D2 is able to freeze action at up to 1/63,000s, making it faster than most high-end studio packs on the market, says the Swedish photography company.
Thanks to its High Speed Sync (HSS) technology, it also boasts burst speeds of up to 20 per second, along with the ability to sync with camera shutter speeds of up to 1/8000s.
Profoto says the D2 can maintain its remarkably short flash duration across the full energy range.
You can point-and-shoot and the D2 will automatically adjust its output for perfect exposure.
But manual mode is available at the click of a button, so switching between both modes with settings intact just makes everything move faster.”
The D2 will be available in 500Ws and 1000Ws versions, both of which come with a 10 f-stop energy range and “superior colour consistency over the entire range”.
The D2 can also help to speed up workflow because it’s equipped with patented TTL technology.
