We also offer Profoto lighting kits, studio lighting equipment, and general lighting accessories to help you get the most out of your photography lighting setup.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

When Would You Use Strobe Lighting vs Continuous Lighting?

Strobe lighting is often preferred in situations where the photographer needs to freeze a fast-moving subject or create dramatic lighting effects, while continuous lighting is often preferred when the photographer wants to be able to see the effect of the lighting on the subject while they are composing the shot. However, both types of lighting can be used effectively in a wide range of situations, and the choice between them will depend on the specific needs and goals of the photographer.

Does Profoto Make a Continuous Light?

Yes. While many photographers know about Profoto flashes, Profoto also produces continuous lighting products. In fact, some Profoto flashes even double as continuous light sources. Be sure to check the product specification of the Profoto lighting product you are considering before purchasing.

What Does RFi Stand for in Profoto Lighting Products?

RFi, which stands for recessed front - improved, refers to the recessed diffusers in front of the Profoto lighting unit's softbox that give photographers and lighting professionals better light control when setting up shots.

Can I Sync Multiple Profoto Flashes Together?

Are Profoto Light Shaping Tools Compatible with Other Brands?
