Today, Profoto formally announced their Pro-10 studio generator -- "The world's fastest flash". It appears that the Pro-10 replaces the Pro-8a generator, as the Pro-8a generators no longer appear on the Profoto website.
Here are some of the features and specs it boasts to make that claim:
- 2400ws studio generator w/ 2 outlets
- 11 f-stop power range
- up to 1/80,000 of a second flash duration (t0.5)
- Fast recycling - up to 50 flashes/second.
- AirTTL and HSS
From photos, physically, the Pro-10 looks fairly compact -- roughly about the size of a Pro-B4 at first glance.
The inclusion of TTL and HSS in a studio pack is interesting. It's certainly new for this class of product, and with a generator on-location, having up to 2400ws available to easily tame mid-day sun in addition to HSS will open up some creative possibilities (without having to fuss with filters or additional equipment). Adding TTL and HSS certainly homogenizes the current-generation Profoto product line with each having TTL and HSS capabilities, signaling that their entire product line will all work together seamlessly.
We look forward to renting this pack when it releases in the fall and can hopefully give you all a quick overview and our thoughts on the new beast from Profoto.
