Profoto C1 is a smartphone studio light that creates professional images with just a simple click. Point-and-shoot with automatic exposure and flash power based on the surrounding conditions. Go between natural and dramatic images with a swipe of your finger. In manual mode, get full control and freedom over power, exposure, and color temperature.

Designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, Profoto C1 delivers beautiful light on the go. Its round shape mimicking the sun creates a soft fall-off. Its wide color range creates colors that can match any light conditions from dusk to dawn. And its built-in reflectors and dome diffuser create natural shadows.

Profoto C1 is so tiny it fits anywhere – even hidden inside your image. Or use it hand-held to easily play around and explore different angles by simply moving it around. Adjust its color temperature to add a golden or cool light, mixing it with the ambient light or adding a contrasting color. Bring in dramatic shadows or go for a brighter natural feel. You can even use several lights together. Profoto C1 offers lots of creative possibilities.
