The New Profoto Pro D3 – Relentless Power

Profoto Pro D3 Light - artemis-piu-8-large

NEW Pro D3 Pack-In Head

The New Pro D3 is available in two versions: 750 Ws and 1250 Ws. Built with long-life flash capacitors, AirX inside, and compatible with +120 Profoto modifiers. Its recycling speed is as fast as 1/75000 of a second.

The first pack-in head strobe designed to withstand the demands of large content creation studios. The most durable monolight in the world with relentless power.

Checkout the three flash parameters that resemble the flexibility of creative choice: for increased equipment lifetime and color consistency, run it in default flash mode (ECO); when in need of a little more power, toggle to Boost mode; to eliminate motion blur, thrive off the shortest flash duration to this day in Freeze mode. 

The Pro-D3 also features a very power-efficient LED-modeling light. It shines brighter than a 400-watt halogen lamp with only 15% of the power consumption. Beyond saving energy costs, this keeps light shapers cool and extends their lifetime. Additionally, the modeling light has a fixed daylight-balanced color temperature and spreads light like a flash, which gives an authentic representation of the light in the final shot.

Choose between full flash power or accent light; the 11 f-stop range, fine-tuned with 0.1 f-stop precision, provides nuances. For seamless synchronization between devices, the Pro-D3 is equipped with Profoto’s latest user interface and AirX technology, which gives way to a hassle-free workflow.
