Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Profoto A1X AirTTL-S Studio Light for Sony
The Profoto A1X AirTTL-S Studio Light for Sony is an easy-to-use, professional-quality on- and off-camera flash. Key features include:
What’s Changed. The Profoto A1X AirTTL-S Studio Light for Sony offers some notable improvements over the A1 (though this is the first model compatible with Sony.) First up, a more powerful battery provides 450 full-power pops instead of the 350 on the A1. Said battery also drops the max recycle time from 1.2 down to 1 second flat. While the original A1 had a paltry 8 wireless channels, the A1X steps up to 20 channels. Finally, the user interface has been updated to match the B10’s new hotness.
Professional-Quality Compact Flash. Don’t let the A1X AirTTL-S Studio Light’s compact build fool you—it’s a Profoto light through and through. Its round 2.75-inch tilting and rotating head produces stunning, natural-looking light with soft, gradual fall-off. It boasts an LED modeling light to help you set up your shots, and a built-in magnetic mount that lets you easily install, uninstall, and stack the included dome diffuser and bounce card. The head’s auto-zoom covers focal lengths from 32 to 105mm.
Fast, Powerful Performance. The A1 gives you an array of flash durations from 1/800 to 1/20,000 second, while using High-Speed Sync lets you shoot at shutter speeds as fast as 1/8,000 second for great background blur when using a wide aperture. Its 0.05- to 1-second recycle time is markedly faster than most other flashes in its class, so you won’t have to worry about missing your shot.
The A1X is a superlative on-camera flash, but it also excels in off-camera applications. Its built-in transceiver means you can use it with A1, A1X, B1, B1X, and B10 strobes. Any Air Remote wireless controller can trigger the A1X at up to 1,000 feet, and the Air Sync will let you wirelessly trigger the A1X, and adjust its power, grouping, channel-selection, and modeling-light settings. Better yet, the built-in AirTTL lets you use the A1X to easily connect to and control other Profoto flashes.
High-Capacity Battery with Fast Recharge. The lithium-ion battery provides about 450 full-power flashes per charge with no performance fade, or up to thousands of flashes when you lower the power output, up from 350 over the previous A1. You can’t use an AC adapter to power this strobe—it’s battery-powered only. Once its battery is depleted, you’ll have to swap or recharge it before you can continue shooting.Intuitive Design. In true Profoto fashion, the A1X’s simple interface and large, white-on-black LED combine to make it easy to use right out of the box. The updated interface is similar to the B10’s newer menu system.
Are we out of stock?If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.
We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.
On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.
In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.
If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
