The Profoto A2 Compact Monolight is an ultra-compact prosumer flash head designed for off-camera wireless use. Key features include:

  • 100Ws maximum output; 10-stop power range

  • Compact, lightweight build for maximum portability

  • Built-in AirX compatibility; full TTL control and HSS

  • Compatible with Profoto Air and Connect Pro remotes

Ultra-Portable Monolight. The Profoto A2 Compact Monolight is a lightweight, ultra-compact flash head that’s equally suited to location photography and run-and-gun shooting. It’s small enough to carry in your jacket pocket, but versatile and powerful enough to be useful in just about any location.

Flash Output. The A2 offers a 100Ws maximum output, with 10 stops of adjustment in 1/10-stop increments and a full-power maximum recycle time of 1.6 seconds.

Built for Off-Camera Use. This light was designed for wireless, off-camera use. It features built-in AirX functionality and is compatible with Profoto Air and Connect Pro remotes. You can sync the A2 with any camera that has a hot shoe, and you can use the light’s built-in Bluetooth functionality to capture images with a smartphone

Additional Features. The A2 is compatible with Profoto Clic light-shaping tools. A built-in reflector and lens to give you a natural light spread with a smooth fall-off, a removable stand adapter with integrated 5/8-inch umbrella mount is compatible with just about everything out there, and there’s a 2.1 W LED modeling light with a 3500K color temperature to help you get your shot just right. The light has an intuitive interface presented on a large, easy-to-read high-res display, and it’s fully compatible with the same batteries and chargers as Profoto A-series flashes.
