Profoto D2 AirTTL 2-1000W/s Monolights Duo Kit
Profoto D2 – The world’s fastest monolight
With the Profoto D2, you’re always up to speed. Whether you’re shooting portrait, food, fashion or sport, with a flash duration of up to 1/63,000 of a second you’ll get a great shot every time. This is high-end light shaping excellence in a superfast and versatile package for photographers who demand only the very best.
The D2 can be fully integrated together with AirTTL flashes like the B1 and B2. You can shoot with all flashes in TTL or manual mode or combine them as you wish. For example set the D2 in manual for the background and use the B1 or B2 in TTL as the main flash. HSS is available in both manual and TTL modes.
Freeze the moment
The D2 can provide super quick flash durations up to 1/63,000 of a second. Shoot a splash of water and it will be frozen in mid-air – a photographic work of art.
Catch the moment
The D2 can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. That’s fast enough to catch the best of any moment. Ask your subject to jump and you’ll have 20 mid-air exposures to choose from.
Control your surroundings
Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to shoot with shutter speeds up to 1/8,000 of a second. Use HSS to shoot with large aperture in bright conditions or to freeze action with absolute sharpness.
Shoot with ease using TTL
Point-and-shoot in TTL Mode. Switch to Manual Mode and control the light with intuitive buttons and menus. Forget about the flash and focus on the light.
Overpower any light
The D2 packs enough of punch to overpower the available light in almost any situation. Its power is also a blessing when shooting at larger distances or when using larger Light Shaping Tools.
Grow with speed
It has the speed to set you free, and the power for you to be at your best. It’s an integrated part of the extensive Profoto system. Go full speed ahead with the D2.

I was in a pinch after my studio lighting setup went down. I had searched locally for the D2 1000W but had no luck. I stumbled across pictureline during a web search. They were in stock and offered next day shipping (at an additional cost) . I ordered in the AM (I'm in CA) and we had the lights up and running the next day. Lights are a little heavy but that is to be expected. The recycle time is fantastic for my needs, still product and models. Easy straightforward setup and usage. The center knob does almost everything by turning, pressing or press-turning it. The additional functions (like changing power on each head individually) with the Air Remote is great when placing the lights where the back isn't easily accessible. We haven't had any issues when comparing images to our previous light pack setup. The added mobility of not being tethered to a pack has been an added bonus but these lights do plug straight a light socket so you do still have a chord to work around/with. The D1 soft boxes and reflectors we had worked with these heads too.
