p.1 #1 · From Profoto, new B4 revealed


Sep 10 is the official unveiling, but sneak previews show a replacement for the Pro-B3. At 1000J, the new Pro-B4 has slightly less energy, but much shorter duration. Two heads are fully independent. Chassis has the D4 style of twin handles. The pack/head is water resistent - a first for Profoto - but I wouldn't use it in the rain. Modern LiFe battery is used, of course. Looks beautiful and expensive (life is like that).

The specs are really good but it is really expensive. It is more than all my flash equipment together and this is without the new ProHead Plus!

If this is anything like the rest of Profoto's digital line, it's more efficient than the analog gear (so that 1000Ws is probably blasting out more light than the 1200Ws analog packs it replaces).

Profoto really knows how to make stuff look good. You just want to pick that up and start playing with it, preferably in a gorgeous studio somewhere in Gothenburg. Ten grand for a pack and head isnít justifiable for tinkerers or bottom feeders, but itís nice to dream.

$7899.00 @ Capture Integration.... This is one Bad As& Batt Generator along with the new ProB and Pro II heads
for even more accurate light temp especially at lower powers.

Wow do I want this setup. 1000 w/s is perfect for most applications. Wow photo gear is getting crazy expensive. Does this have dual 1000 w/s outlets or dual 500's? I'm not seeing any indication of such.

It's a 1000 w/s pack and each head it independently adjustable, but it's total max power is 1000 w/s regardless of how many heads are connected.

The B4 is nice but it seems they discontinued the 7B.
There's no way the B4 is affordable and the remaining
B3 is still pricey.

7B is my location workhorse and was saving for another.

Pro-7B does look discontinued, so you have three affordable options: buy a used Pro-7B, buy a used Pro-B2/3, or downgrade your location gear to AcuteB2.
