Profoto C1 Plus 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 Plus 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 diffusers create natural shadows.

The Profoto C1 Plus is compatible with light shaping tools such as color gels, grids, and dome, which give limitless creative possibilities. The light shaping tools click on and off in no time with the C1 Plus’ magnetic mount. Use it hand-held to easily play around and explore different angles by simply moving the C1 Plus around, or put it on a stand or arm with the built-in thread mount. You can even use several lights together. Since C1 Plus is also compatible with Profoto AirTTL Remotes, you can also bring it along if shooting with a classic camera.
