Profoto Introduces New ProDaylight 200/400 Air
 
Latest continuous light sources add to the growing Profoto product line
 
North White Plains, NY (April 16, 2012) – Profoto, the world's leading manufacturer of professional photography lighting and Light Shaping Tools, announces today the new ProDaylight 200 Air and ProDaylight 400 Air continuous light sources. In 2011, Profoto released the continuous light source ProDaylight 800 Air, thereby introducing the concept of light shaping to video. ProDaylight Air is an HMI light, which is ideal for most photo and video shoots.
 
These latest versions are even smaller and more lightweight, yet still as powerful and robust. The fact that the units do not use fans to keep cool makes them totally silent – a valuable feature when working with live sound video. The word “Air” simply means that they come with Profoto’s renowned Air radio remote function, which lets users control the light from the palm of their hand.
 
“The increasing popularity of modern DSLR cameras that are capable of not only shooting still photographs but high definition video as well prove that the worlds of photography and video are blending into one,” said Mark Rezzonico, VP Product Group. “And as more and more photographers begin to specialize in offering photography and video services, these new HMI continuous light sources will perfectly complement their equipment and assist them in getting the most out of their video as well as photo shoots.”
 
These new products are compatible with Profoto’s wide assortment of Light Shaping Tools. Note that all HMI lights need a ballast to work. ProDaylight is no exception, and to fully support the new versions Profoto is also launching the new ProBallast 200/400. ProBallast is multivoltage, flicker-free and automatically senses that a 200W or a 400W head is connected – and adjusts itself accordingly.
 
At the NAB Show this week in Booth # C8217, Profoto will be showing the complete line of continuous light products including the new ProDaylight 200 Air and ProDaylight 400 Air systems as well as the new cine Reflector Lite. Also featured will be Profoto’s extensive line of light shaping tools.

Profoto Introduces New Umbrella XL Product Line
 
ew Light Shaping Tools ideal for portrait and fashion photography
 
Elmsford, NY (December 1, 2011) – Profoto, the world's leading manufacturer of professional photography lighting and Light Shaping Tools, is proud to introduce the new Umbrella XL product line.
 
"The new Profoto Umbrella XL products were created with professional portrait and fashion photographers in mind," said Mark Rezzonico, VP Product Group. "These new light shaping tools create a smooth yet distinctive light, allowing photographers to perfectly illuminate a single person or even small groups with just a single light source."
 
Available in three versions – white, silver and translucent – the new Profoto Umbrella XL features a diameter of 65” with a slightly parabolic shape that allows photographers to change the light distribution by simply sliding the umbrella shaft inside the flash head. In addition, the light spread can also be adjusted by moving the Zoom Reflector back or forth, creating an even more versatile look.
 
The Profoto Umbrella XL fits on all Profoto flash heads and monolights. It can also be mounted on Profoto’s Cine Reflector, and thereby can be used with the new line of continuous light sources – ProDaylight 800 Air and ProTungsten 1000 Air.
 
There is also an optional front diffuser available to soften the light and reduce the intensity by 1.5 f/stops, practically converting the white and silver models into a fully functioning Octabox. An optional stand adapter allows photographers to mount the umbrella on a light stand, or for use with other flash brands.
 
Availability
 
All three versions come in a rugged transport bag. They are available now at local photo retailers throughout the U.S. starting at around $300.
