Profoto’s ProDaylight 400 and ProDaylight 200 Announced

How something is lit can make the difference between an ok photo or video and a great one, that is where Profoto comes in. Profoto is a leading manufacturer of professional photography lighting and Light Shaping tools. They announced at NAB (National Association of Broadcast Show) that they are releasing two new products the ProDaylight 200 Air and ProDaylight 400 Air. These are versions of the ProDaylight Air 800 which was released in 2011. The 200 and 400 are smaller and lighter, but still powerful and sturdy. A great thing about both of these devices is that they do not require a fan to keep them cool. If you have ever tried to shoot a video with sound you know how irritating the sound coming from a fan can be. They also can be controlled remotely by a controller that can sit in the palm of your hand.

Both the 200 and the 400 ProDaylight Air products are HMI lights which are ideal for most photo and video shoots. They are a continuous light source that compliments both photo and video shoots. Profoto is also introducing ballasts to work with these devices, the ProBallast 200 and ProBallast 400. Pro-ballast will automatically recognizes when a ProDaylight 200 Air or a ProDaylight 400 Air has been connected and will adjust itself accordingly. The ProBlast is multi-voltage and flicker free. If you are NAB you can see these and other Profoto products at booth #C8217. If you can’t make it to NAB you can see their products at their Web site.
