The Profoto B10X Plus OCF Flash Head is a more powerful and slightly larger upgrade to the standard B10X OCF Flash Head. Key features include:
500Ws, 10-stop power range
Lithium-ion battery powered
Up to 200 full-power flashes per charge
Compatible with all Air Remote TTL Transceivers
What’s Changed. Fresh off the success of the B10X, Profoto did what any good lighting company would do and doubled the output! The B10X Plus provides 500Ws of power, the same as the bigger B1X, but in a much smaller package. The body of the B10X Plus is about 2.7 inches longer than the standard B10X and weighs about a pound more. While the B10X Plus uses the same battery as the B10X, the added power cuts the number of full-power flashes you get on a single charge in half, down to 200 from 400 on the B10X.
Flash Output. The Profoto B10X Plus OCF Flash Head offers a 500Ws maximum output, with 10 stops of adjustment in 1/10 or 1-stop increments. Maximum recycle time at full power is 2.2 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 Plus OCF offers full TTL support when matched with one of the Profoto Air Remote TTL Transceivers for Canon, Nikon, Sony, 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 200 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.
The Profoto B10X Plus doesn’t have a sync port, so you’ll need to use one of the Profoto Air Remotes to trigger it remotely.
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.
