REVIEW: Profoto D2 500 & 1000 AirTTL

You loved the Profoto D1 series for its compact size, wireless air control, consistent shot-to-shot quality, and rugged build quality. Profoto’s B1 and B2 strobes won you over with TTL and high-speed sync. Well, there’s a new sheriff in town that builds upon the success of all three of these models, while adding a ton of speed to the equation. Profoto’s new D2 AirTTL strobe, available in 500Ws and 1000Ws models, is redefining the definition of speed in monolights. The D2 brings together the best attributes of Pro-foto’s previous monolights as well as their more speedy pack and head...
