The Profoto A10 shares its basic form factor and functionality with the A1X Studio Light, making it an exceptionally lightweight and intuitive flash with natural-looking light output from its characteristic 2.75″ round head. With 90-degree tilt and 360-degree rotation, it can be positioned in nearly any direction quickly and easily. Its high-resolution LCD is easy to read from a distance when using it off-camera.
Features of the A10 include AF-assist, auto and manual zoom, and an LED modeling light for previewing lighting setups. HSS functionality and 1-second recycle times mean you never have to worry about missing a shot. It shares the same lithium-ion battery as the A1X, too, and offers approximately 450 full-power flashes per charge.
To activate AirX control of your light, you will need to download the Profoto App for iOS. An Android-compatible version of the app is currently in development. You can control up to three lights individually through the app or, when used with a Profoto Connect, as many lights as are assigned to the same channel as the Connect. Paired via the Bluetooth function of your smartphone, AirX has an operating range of up to 98′. In addition to your smartphone, the A10 can also be controlled remotely by Profoto Air, AirTTL, and Connect triggers.
Finally, the A10 is compatible with all Profoto Clic light-shaping tools to further refine the quality of its output.
