While the D2 was always a heavy-duty workhorse in the realm of flash heads, the D2i Industrial 1000Ws Monolight from Profoto is a beast of a lighting fixture that can withstand the rigors of literally shooting all day and all night. When the job calls for thousands of flashes, without the need for TTL, the D2i will fit your bill. The redesigned D2i Industrial is constructed with carefully selected components at every critical stage, including its he long-life quartz flash tube and upgraded internal circuit boards. A very serious lighting tool, the D2i requires a sales team that is currently servicing large commercial studio installations. A dedicated contact person trained by Profoto is the point of first contact who's capable and empowered to address all D2i related issues, inquires and updates from Profoto or the customer. The light's warranty has also been specifically tailored to the D2i. Profoto guarantees within 24 hours of the unit's arrival at their NJ office, they will either repair or replace the unit and ship in back to the customer in the same manner it was sent to us. This is for the entire 2-year period covered by the warranty.
Of course, you can also count on the performance features that we've come to expect from Profoto. The D2i recycles to full power in 1.2 seconds, almost half the time as the D1 1000, and in Freeze Mode, achieves flash durations as short as 1/50,000 of a second, outperforming most studio pack systems. That's good news for special effects photographers and sports shooters. It can also shoot bursts of 20 flashes per second so you're sure to capture peak action or several versions of it. The 10-stop power range gives ample choices to achieve your objective. Ready Indicator, Mode and Sync, are easily selected through the Settings button. The display even flips around the way your iPhone does in case you're working with the head upside down or hanging it overhead. The D2i has a self-seeking multi-voltage (100-240) power supply for worldwide use, too. With its myriad of features Profoto has covered so many on the photographers wish list that you'll wonder what they can come up with next.
