The New Profoto B10 Plus is Just the Size of a Long Lens

The new Profoto B10 Plus should come in handy if the lighting is a typical problem when you’re shooting on location.

Addressing a growing need for reliable and more convenient photography gear for shooting on location, Profoto has just unveiled the “seriously small” B10 Plus. Need a reliable flash that can go where you need to? This handy yet powerful lighting is just the size of a large lens — only slightly bigger than the Profoto B10 — making it the perfect companion for shooting on the go.

Profoto came up with this new lighting solution especially with on-location shooting in mind, which should especially come in handy for events and wedding photography. The B10 Plus may be small, lightweight, and fits perfectly in your bag, but it promises to give twice as much power as the B10. That’s 10x more light than a speedlight, yet with completely natural illumination and soft fall off. If you’re shooting both stills and video, you’ll also be delighted to find that you can use the B10 Plus for both modes.

The Profoto B10 Plus has a separate dial for adjusting the brightness and color temperature, so you can customize the look of your lighting to blend seamlessly with the ambient light. Need to do some light shaping as well? It’s also compatible with the compact and lightweight OCF light modifiers as well as 120 others in the full Profoto range. If you’re looking into upgrading from the B10, the B10 Plus uses the same stand adapter and battery. You can also easily remove the stand adapter to mount it on any camera tripod.

Operating and controlling the B10 Plus off-camera is done through any Profoto Air Remote, or using the Profoto A1 or A1X. These remotes come in all major camera brands. If you prefer to use your smartphone screen, you can also connect the B10 Plus to the Profoto app and download the latest updates.
