“Enabling photographers to do the upgrades themselves is a great step in our quest for providing Profoto users with the best in class customer support,” says Göran Marén, Product Manager at Profoto. “This is something we will strive to provide for all new products.”
This is the first of many planned upgrades for the B1 off-camera flash and the AirTTL system. Profoto is currently working on a firmware upgrade for high-speed sync (HSS). Profoto is also busy developing the new Air Remote TTL-N that will enable TTL metering with Nikon cameras. Both the HSS upgrade and the Air Remote TTL-N are expected to be released in 2014.
B&H carries the Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flash.
Update from Profoto: As some of you might have noted, the firmware upgrade we released on Mar 31 contains a bug that causes the B1 to get stuck at full power. The bug only appears when shooting in TTL mode with Canon EOS-1D X, but considering today's announcement, that is more than enough to remove it from our site.
The short, non-technical explanation for the bug is: we were too eager and didn't test the upgrade properly. For that we are sorry.
Rest assure that we're now working hard to fix this problem. Vacations have been cancelled, the coffee is brewing, and we will get back to you as soon as we can with an update.
For the meantime, it is not possible to download the firmware upgrade from the Profoto site.
Those of you who do not shoot with Canon EOS-1D X will not notice this bug, regardless if you've performed the upgrade or not. Everything will work just fine.
