Profoto D2 500 AirTTL Monolight

The Profoto D2 500 AirTTL Monolight is a compact and versatile photo studio light with TTL and HSS. Designed for heavy-duty shooting, it is the fastest monolight with TTL - offering 1/63,000 flash duration, 20 flashes per second speed and the ability to overpower the available light in almost any situation. Use the point-and-shoot in TTL Mode or switch to the Manual mode to control the light with intuitive buttons and menus. Perfect for shooting portraits in the studio, the D2 500 AirTTL is just as good for product and even sports photography with its Freeze mode and shutter speeds up to 1/8,000 with HSS.

Freeze the Moment

The D2 can provide super quick flash durations up to 1/63,000 of a second. Shoot a splash of water and it will be frozen in mid-air – a photographic work of art.

Catch the Moment

The D2 can shoot up to 20 flashes per second. That’s fast enough to catch the best of any moment. Ask your subject to jump and you’ll have 20 mid-air exposures to choose from.

Control Your Surroundings

Profoto High-Speed Sync (HSS) enables you to shoot with shutter speeds up to 1/8,000 of a second. Use HSS to shoot with large aperture in bright conditions or to freeze action with absolute sharpness.

Shoot with Ease Using TTL

Point-and-shoot in TTL Mode. Switch to Manual Mode and control the light with intuitive buttons and menus. Forget about the flash and focus on the light.

Overpower Any Light

The D2 packs enough of punch to overpower the available light in almost any situation. Its power is also a blessing when shooting at larger distances or when using larger Light Shaping Tools.


The D2 unit supports HSS when used with any of optional Air Remote TTL transceivers. HSS enables shooting with the flash at a faster shutter speed than the fastest external flash sync speed of the camera. This option can be extremely useful to limit the influence of ambient light when shooting in bright light conditions.
