Gear this week: A modern on-camera flash, vintage wireless multi-room speakers, and more

Profoto A1

The Profoto A1 contains so many good ideas that you wonder why it took so long to make an on-camera flash this modern. First, the flash has a round head, which simulates natural light with a smooth fall-out. Secondly, a magnetic mount built into the head allows you to easily snap modifiers onto the flash. For accuracy, there’s even a built-in modeling light. The A1 ships with its own swappable rechargeable battery, and with AirTTL, it can wirelessly integrate with compatible Profoto lights.
