Had a blast shooting with a Profoto B1 the other day. Thank you for looking.

does the ettl work with any other modifier other than an open faced reflector?

Really nice examples. What a first class product. Since it's ettl is there anyway to know what the power output was on a given shot. I can't wait for the Nikon version.

Zurkzees, I used the B1 without any light modifiers, so I can't answer your question. The ETTL was very reliable shooting with the bare strobe.

Thanks, Gregg. Yes, you can see the power output after each shot. It's displayed on the back of the strobe in a scale from 2 to 10. Switching from TTL to Manual will lock the flash exposure. You can then change the power in manual mode from the locked exposure. Hope this helps.

Now I can see them. Nice.
I got my pair of B1's and TTL Air controller two days ago and will use them on a job this weekend.
Can't wait.

PS: The B1 head works with my PF beauty dish though it's a bit top heavy.

This is the one think that keeps me happy with my acuteB2 600r, with a BD the weight of the pack is enough to keep in stable in any wind. Having used the D1 with AIR system in the studio, I'd love AIR system with it though.

Is it sad that I find the B1 sexier than the pretty ladies in the photos? I'm depressed...

TTL should work with every sort of modifier, because that's the whole point of it. Throw a dish or softbox on the B1 and your camera's pre-flash will meter it "Through The Lens".

Clearly, your shots with the new Profoto B1 demonstrate the enhanced level of artistic achievement possible when one does not have to consider the onerous and menial task of plugging a power cord into an external battery pack.

Seriously? Being cordless is not the main appeal of the B1s, TTL is. Imagine being a commercial shooter and having to cram a dozen different shots and sets into one day. Now, imagine that you can simply pop your lights on stands and just GO... that's a big advantage.

Nice shots. I order done few weeks ago and am still waiting. The wait is killing me. Oh, I still find the model way sexier than any light. Lol
