Profoto Fresnel Small

Profoto has announced the Fresnel Small, which they are claiming is an easy-to-use Fresnel that offers the characteristic light of Hollywood nostalgia in the style of cinematic lighting of today. This light shaping tool is crafted to offer precise control over the light beam.

Yes, this is a photography light, but I know quite a few of our readers do both video and stills, so it may be of some interest.

According to Profoto, the Fresnel Small is engineered with top-tier components, and it can project a clean and crisp light quality that’s consistent with both flat front lights and protruded head units. The Fresnel Small features a vented housing to dissipate heat.

This medium-sized Fresnel lens is claimed to be able to mimic the sun. The Fresnel Small gives you a crisp, clean light beam and with the built-in adjustable iris, you can control the light with accuracy and precision. You can adjust the iris to achieve balanced light over distances or sharp contrasts, and trust that dramatic effects will follow.

The Fresnel Small is compatible with both flat and protruded flash heads. For the B10-series lights, we recommend using it with a stand adapter (100760, bought separately) for stability.
