Profoto D2

The world's fastest monolight with TTL

You’re always up to speed with the D2

The versatile and super-fast Profoto D2 monolight with TTL and HSS is up to any challenge. With the ability to freeze action at up to 1/63,000 of a second, shoot bursts of 20 images per second and sync with camera shutter speeds as fast as 1/8,000 of a second, the D2 is redefining the definition of speed in monolights.

Why choose the D2?

Profoto D2 Quick to set up Easy to use

Quick to set up. Easy to use.

Profoto doesn’t do complicated. The D2 is a light with few simple, intuitive controls and a large LED display that’s easy to read in the dark or in bright sunshine, where you often find some of the best photographers. So instead of fiddling with sub menus or user manuals, you can focus on being creative. And setting up takes seconds. Sometimes less is more.

Capture the moment in perfect light with AirTTL

Finding the right exposure first time can be a challenge when time is limited or the light is constantly changing. AirTTL automatically finds it for you – so all you need to do is point and shoot. Alternatively, you can switch to manual mode, keep your previous TTL settings and fine tune the exposure until you achieve exactly the look and feel you want. And with Air Remote you can wirelessly trigger your lights at the click of a button up to a range of 300 m in direct sunlight.

Capture the action

Shooting in super quick bursts of 20 flashes per second you can capture all of the action. Ask your subject to jump and you’ll have 20 mid-air exposures to choose from. And besides fast recycling, D2 can also sync with the quickest shutter speeds up to 1/8,000s.

Freeze the moment

Creating crisp, sharp images with no motion blur is not a problem for the world’s fastest monolight. D2’s short flash duration of up to 1/63,000s enables it to freeze an image with absolute sharpness. You’ll notice that the finer details really stand out – a splash of water, a speck of powder, even a strand of hair.

Profoto D2 Overpower any light Or add a hint of light

Overpower any light. Or add a hint of light.

D2’s wide 10-stop power range offers you flexible options for different lighting scenarios. It packs enough punch to overpower the sun and illuminate larger areas. Yet you can also use the lower f-stops to add a subtle hint of light in darker environments – perfect for when you want to create a cozy, moody atmosphere. Whatever you choose, it’s like having a complete palette of colors at your disposal.

Shape light in broad daylight with HSS

With Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) it doesn’t matter how bright the sun shines. It enables you to use your flash at shutter speeds up to 1/8,000s. So you can overpower the sun and shape your light even with large apertures in broad daylight.

D2 is compatible with over 120 light shaping tools and has a rubber collar that makes it easy to slip them on to fit the head. And that’s not all, because D2 also has several built-in features. The zoom allows you to change the light characteristics of each LST, offering even more creative possibilities. It’s like having several LSTs in one. D2 also has a flat front with an integrated reflector that provides wide even light with high efficiency as well as being very compact and well protected.

Images shot with the Profoto D2

"I love all kinds of lights but the D2 gives me such a wide range of possibilities, and because of its speed, it is easy to freeze one moment and get a slight variation of that particular moment quickly."

Matthew Jordan Smith


"Since beauty photography is all about portraying details and to make sure all the details are in focus, it’s important to work with a small aperture so that your depth of field is not too narrow. The Profoto D2 1000 AirTTL allows me to capture crisp details and textures in all their micro glory."

Kate Whyte


"When I saw the new Profoto D2s, I was so excited how light and simple they were for on-location shoots, and I've loved using them ever since I got them."

John Russo
