Fast Review: Profoto Air Remote TTL-F

As promised here is my review of the Profoto Air Remote TTL-F

Ease of use

The Profoto Air Remote TTL-F is the way to go is you want to have professional studio light and full TTL functionality and HSS. Slip it on your FujiFilm camera and it works.

But for you use it don't forget to update the firmware of your camera and strobes. If you don't do this you can het some bugs with the HSS function and TTL. 

But with the Profoto Air Remote TTL-F you can control the lights in manual or full TTL mode. With one light you need to use your camera's flash compensation, with multiple the groups on the remote. 


Compatible Camera's and Strobes

At this moment the Profoto Air Remote TTL-F works with the FujiFilm X-T2, X-Pro2, X100f and GFX-50s camera. More will be possible after firmware updates

From the profoto site you have full TTL and HSS functionality with the Profoto, A1 (when used off-camera), B1, B1X, B2, D2 and Pro10. 

The Con's

Off-course there are also some downsides. One is the battery life, this is approx. 30 hours on 2 AAA-batterys. The Profoto Air Remote can do much longer on a pair of AAA battery's, but also has a lot less of calculation to do.... 

The other con is that in comparison the de Profoto Air Remote you only have acces to groups A, B and C and not D, E and F. Which won't be a problem if you are like me and hardly ever use more then two or three lights.

Profoto AIR-TTL for FujiFilm

Today I got the message that the Profoto AIR-TTL remote for FujiFilm will be availeble. I have had the honor to test the trigger last weekes and must Say I love it! It gives met full TTL and HSS functionality with my FujiFilm camera's and Profoto Flash units.

Here is a short videos from the first photoshoot I did with the Profoto AIR-TTL-F trigger at the Vans store in the Amsterdam Kalverstraat. All photos are shot with the B2 unit and the OCF 2" octa or the Deep Umbrella White L on HSS and TTL.

I really love the capability to shoot faster then sync speed (1/125) with the GFX camera. I all ready did a few different assignments fully on TTL and it works fine! In the upcoming week I will make a full review of the unit and small tutorial video. So see you soon!
