Profoto just release an update for the A1; the A1x... Pretty much the same with a little tweak here and there, like having better battery output... 450 full power flashes (A1x) vs 350 full power flashes (A1)... And slightly faster recycling time of 1 second (A1x) vs 1.2 seconds (A1)... Lol... From what I've read and researched online, owners that currently have the A1's can merely buy the A1x battery to achieve the 450 full power flashes... Schweetness!!! Hehehe...

Anyhoo... Just adding info to the Profoto thread.. Direct link to Profoto A1x: https://profoto.com/us​/a1x (external link)

Yes, Butch, just like they updated the B1 to the B1X. The battery is the main improvement. They also released a firmware update for the A1 to improve the menus and standardize it with the B10. I think I'll get a couple of the batteries.

Has anyone got the B10 Plus yet? I'm selling one of my B1s to help fund it. Should have it within 2 weeks.

I saw the advertisement yesterday morning... tisk tisk... Just sold my second B1 after acquiring another B10... From the YouTube video I saw below, I think I'm ok with keeping both of my B10's and not opt to 'upgrade' to the B10 Plus...

YouTube Video Link: https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=kN-M_-HU5fo&t=403s (external link)

I still have one B1 left in my inventory, so if I need that 500w/s power, I have that option to play with.. But like I said, the video above changed my mind on trying to 'upgrade' to the B10 Plus... Let me know how the B10 Plus works for you when you acquire it, Annie!!!

I was given the honor of a dear friend of mine to shoot her parent's 50th wedding anniversary... It was in a large banquet hall with about 200 guests... The dance floor was where most of the celebratory program was going to take place, so I knew to setup my strobes around there... Two B10's on C-Stands on the left and right side of the live band, perched about 12 feet high... Both B10's had 7" reflectors with white diffusers on them... An A1 was mounted on my camera to trigger both strobes, while giving some fill light from my camera's hotshoe... Canon 1Dx + 50L... ISO 200, f/2 @ 1/200sec... B10's and A1 were set to TTL... The event was 4 hours long and I shot about 500 frames... Changed the battery once, on my A1, but the B10's had one bar left on them... I couldn't be happier with how everything worked out!!!

50th Celebratory Hula Dance!!!

Well, I'm sticking with my old B1 as it's hardly worth anything and works like a champ. I watched a Profoto YT video and there are advantages to the B1/B1X that the B10 Plus does not have - it's not ALL about the power. Like, being able to use the larger RFi modifiers and also the physical robustness is superior, not to mention the lovely handle.

What I wanted to share (maybe someone else will benefit) is my solution to using two A1s (or A1X) on two cameras and a B10 in a dark church during a fast-paced wedding. I have a Spider Pro belt with two cameras each with an A1 in the hot-shoe - all on manual. The B10 will be at the door end of the aisle and won't be used too much except for the bride and groom walking back down the aisle and wide-angle images of the church. The A1s will be bounced off side walls and ceiling but the one not being used at any one time must have the head OFF. It was doing my head in trying to figure out how to control all the lights using two different controllers (the A1s). It turned out not to be too simple and I don't have much opportunity to 'learn' it and be proficient without thinking. Then I had the idea that all I need to do is hang an Air Remote round my neck and just use it as a single controller. This is so simple I don't know why I've been stressing for two days about it. I'll let you know how it goes after the wedding on Friday!

I have a similar problem. I have 4x B1's and 5x Ex600's. trying not to be intrusive is a hard calculation. I've decided to use B1's at the formals after the ceremony, no flash during the ceremony and the 600's during the reception. I have to arrive a bit before the ceremony to set up lights.

An A1 behind the couple, B10 camera left lighting the trees and B1X behind me and slightly to camera right with large silver umbrella and diffuser. It was 12:30 am and pitch black. I couldn't use the 5D4 as I couldn't see the focussing point. The 1DX came to the rescue!
