Profoto Doubles the Power with the B10 Plus; More Info at B&H

Photography News: Profoto continues to bolster its lineup of portable strobes with the powerful B10 Plus. With double the output of the original B10, the Plus is a great option for photographers and videographers who need more light for their scene or subject.

NEW YORK--()--B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Profoto B10 Plus Flash. The latest addition to Profoto’s outstanding series of portable strobes, the B10 Plus offers twice the power of the original B10, bringing the output up to 500Ws and producing approximately ten times the light of a standard speedlight. With this extra power comes a little extra bulk, though the B10 Plus still maintains a quite portable form factor, especially when compared with traditional monolights that offer similar output. Another benefit is that the B10 Plus will support the same accessories as the standard B10, including OCF Light Shapers.
