Profoto A1 Firmware B5 Released


Profoto hasn’t released a Fujifilm specific A1 yet, but the A1 works great with the Profoto Air Remote TTL-F. Unfortunately, it seems the Profoto A1 has some issues, but the latest firmware update addresses them.

The Profoto A1 battery is designed to deliver up to 350 full power flashes on a full charge depending on the shooting conditions. However, some customers have experienced a lower number of flashes and there could be 2 reasons for this:

1) Your A1 Firmware is out of date
Solution – Update the firmware to version B5 or later for your Profoto A1. To do this, register or log in to My Profoto and download the latest update & installation instructions.

2) Some very early production units have a hardware issue
This can be identified by rapidly draining battery or the head heating up while set to standby and not in use. This problem is related to the zoom motor which might drain the battery and overheat

Solution – Run the following test:

– Turn on your Profoto A1 and put it in standby-mode in room temperature
– Leave it in standby mode for 15-20 minutes. Do not use the A1 during this time.
– If you then are experiencing distinct temperature rise on the head of your Profoto A1 unit, please contact your local Profoto dealer or distributor – a complete list can be found at https://profoto.com/find-dealer-or-rental/

We apologise for any inconvenience this might have caused our customers.
