The Profoto B10X OCF Flash Head is a compact, battery-powered monolight strobe designed for on-location shoots, and an update to the original B10. We also offer the more powerful B10X Plus. Key features include:

  • 250Ws, 10-stop power range

  • Lithium-ion battery powered

  • Up to 400 full-power flashes per charge

  • Compatible with all Air Remote TTL Transceivers

Flash Output. The Profoto B10X OCF Flash Head offers a 250Ws maximum output, with 10 stops of adjustment in 1/10 or 1-stop increments. Maximum recycle time at full power is 1.3 seconds, and a Freeze Mode allows you to prioritize flash durations as short as 1/50,000 sec. All of this in a package roughly the size of a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III.

LED Modeling Light. The built-in modeling LED provides the equivalent of 150 W incandescent light. It’s dimmable and boasts a 3000 to 6500K color temperature and a CRI of 90-96, which makes it great for video.

Supports All TTL Air Remotes. The B10X OCF offers full TTL support when matched with one of the Profoto Air Remote TTL Transceivers for CanonNikonSony, and Fuji. Please note that these are separate rental items.

Triggering Options. This strobe has a built-in Profoto AirX radio receiver, allowing it to be triggered by any of the TTL remotes above. You can also use the Profoto Air Remote Transceiver if you’re comfortable with manual power adjustment. You’ll get 300 feet of range when triggering in TTL mode, and 1,000 feet with normal radio triggering. Additionally, there’s a built-in optical secondary flash. Unfortunately there’s no external sync port.

Battery Power. The included lithium-ion battery provides about 400 full-power flashes per charge, or up to thousands of flashes when you lower the power output. The battery attaches to the side of the strobe housing itself, making it easy to move around with. The strobe cannot be AC powered, so once the battery is depleted you’ll need to recharge or swap batteries before you can continue shooting.

Modifier Compatible. This light features a Profoto mount design that is compatible with our various Profoto-mount modifiers.

Q & A

  • Can I use any radio trigger with this strobe?
    • The Profoto B10X doesn’t have a sync port, so you’ll need to use one of the Profoto Air Remotes to trigger it remotely.

  • Is the glass cover plate removable?
    • No, the glass plate cannot be removed. This light is not compatible with the glass dome, nor can the flash tube be replaced by the end user.
