Profoto A1 on XF

Postby Fernando92 » Thu Sep 21, 2017 10:00 am

Profoto announced the new A1 flash that could be mounted directly on the XF slide.
Does anyone know if this is possible?
Will TTL and HSS features be available?

thanks

Profoto A1 should work as any other AirTTL light controlled remotely from XF, with TTL and HSS.

But they announced only Nikon and Canon version and I don't have idea what kind of conflict could happen when you mount it into hot shoe on XF.

My idea would be to put a dummy hot shoe between camera and flash and control the a1 over the profoto controller built in the camera. Have not tested it but called Profoto Germany and they said it should probably work but they didn't tested it either...

We tested an early unit in our office this week (Nikon spec). There is no conflict with the hotshoe of the XF. Works the same when mounted and unmounted. Just enable the Profoto Air on the body and both the manual and TTL controls of the XF work with the A1.
