Better still, it's a trigger for that makes the natural and beautiful light from the Profoto A1X more accessible to more image creators than ever before. Slide it to auto; it's point-and-shoot because the correct flash exposure is calculated for you when you press the shutter. Or you can establish a starting exposure in auto, and then slide it over to manual to creatively fine tune it. The Profoto A1X features a round head with a soft, gentle light fall off. You can be creative with light with a range of light shaping tools and a powerful battery delivers 450 flashes per charge and fast recycling time. As a result, the Profoto Off-Camera Kit featuring the Profoto Connect and the A1X is a powerful and easy to use combination. Used together with the Profoto app, it gives you seamless control and freedom to bring your vision to life. Anytime, anywhere.
Profoto Connect is the button-free trigger that integrates your camera and Profoto light – making light shaping easier than ever before. It only has three settings; auto, manual and off. In auto mode, you just point and shoot for a good exposure, because the flash power is calculated for you. And in manual mode, you can fine-tune the light either manually or via the Profoto app.
The Profoto app is available for iPhone 7 and later, running on iOS 11 and later. This app is required for full control of the Profoto Connect and for making firmware upgrades.

And the A1X can keep up with you because it recycles four times faster than other on-camera solutions – that’s 1.0s at full power. Put simply, you’ll never miss a shot.
