Profoto Acute 2R 1200 Value Pack w/Case
Specially priced kits include: One Acute2R Generator, two Acute2 fan cooled
heads w/ UV protection glass, Quartz flashtube, 250 watt modeling light, zoom
reflector and plastic protection caps, Custom fitted Tenba Air Case designed to accept two heads.
This new generator is based on the Profoto Acute2 and is identical in every
way with one exception: the Profoto Acute2R has a PocketWizard Digital Radio
receiver built-in, to give the photographer *Digital Wireless Freedom.
Fully compatible with all 32 channels used by PocketWizard, the new Profoto
Acute2R eliminates the need for a synch cord and separate PocketWizard receiver.
With an effective range of up to 300 feet, the Profoto Acute2R can be fired
using any model PocketWizard transmitter or transceiver. You can also use the
Sekonic L-358 or L-608 light meters, with the PocketWizard transmitter enabled,
to fire the generator.
In order to maintain the simple elegance that Profoto is known for, the
Profoto Acute2R has no buttons or switches to set when selecting a channel.
Simply turn the generator on and the system is put into “Learn” mode. The first
PocketWizard signal it receives, it remembers. To reset, just turn the generator
off, then on again and repeat. This simple approach eliminates any learning
curve for the photographer. The Acute2Rs are available in both 1200 and 2400 w/s
versions. (The original Acute2 units without the PocketWizard receivers remain
as part of the Acute product line.) The Profoto Acute 2 and Acute2R packs offer
fast recycling times and very short flash durations. As with the Profoto Acute
2, the Acute2R also includes a fully proportional
modeling light and a
white-light slave that can be turned off.
Even though these new generators take advantage of the latest technology,
they are still fully compatible with previous model heads in the Profoto Acute
series. The modeling lights however, will remain at full-power since the
original Acute units had no control at the generator. As with other Profoto
products, all Profoto Light Shaping Tools are fully interchangeable.
These newly upgraded generators maintain the small size and convenient
footprint of their predecessor, with a substantial improvement to performance
and function. Faster recycle times & shorter flash durations combine with
proportional modeling lights to offer the “pro on the go” a location package
that is perfectly suited for all applications.
Of course, the Acute2R generators are fully compatible with all older Acute
style heads, and the new heads are backwards compatible with older Acute
generators as well. As always, all Profoto heads work with all Profoto light
