MPR Says: “Bring out the Big Guns. The Pro Foto Pro-8A 2400 is a workhorse!!”

“The Profoto Pro-8a 2400 is the best of the breed, top of the line in still photography rental world. If you need high power for your studio or location these are the correct tools for the job. Like Martha Stewart says, “The right tool for the right job.” What does Martha Stewart have to do with still photography rentals? Hmmm, nothing! Just love that quote! The Profoto Pro-8a rental unit brings accurate color consistency, immense control, the shortest possible flash duration, while pumping out loads of light. Excelling at lighting cars, daylight exterior on location, and massive wide shots with fast action. Need to freeze the moment? A short flash duration is a must! Effective shutter speed comes from flash duration opposed to the shutter speed to determine the exposure. Engineering a light like this was a major accomplishment and Profoto delivered! There are no compromises with the Profoto Pro-8a 2400. The word Finesse comes to mind with 10 F-stop power range in 1/10 increments (5-2400). Cloudy day and no sun on Fort Lauderdale beach? Create the sun! Need to fill in shadows on a model’s face in bright sunlight on Miami Beach. You can do it with these powerful units. No issues. Florida tested and proven to show me the light. Bullet proof is how these units roll. If the strobe pack falls off the back of a truck. Brush it off, plug it in, and it will work. But, this strobe kit is not one that you take on a trip through the woods unless sherpas are bearing the load. Heavy not lightweight and you must have proper power. Works well in the elements for sure. Humidity, heat and cold do not affect Profoto. If you have never used these units? Don’t be afraid. You can power up a Profoto pack with little or no instruction and master it within about 15 minutes.   Way simpler to operate than Broncolor, though Broncolor has some advantages and also its fanboys.”
