Sony and Profoto Announce Collaboration and First Interoperable Product for Serious Photographers
(SINGAPORE, 21 September 2016) – At Photokina 2016 in Cologne, Germany, Sony today announced a collaboration with Profoto with the aim of providing visionary photographers a platform to bring their creative and ambitious visions to life.
This collaboration allows for optimised compatibility between Profoto flashes and light shaping tools and Sony interchangeable lens cameras (ILC). Sony has licensed the technical specifications for three of its ILC models to Profoto which enables them to develop product which provides a rich light shaping experience for Sony α camera users.
“The passion for enabling great photography is one that we share with Profoto and we are excited that Sony α users will be able to broaden their shooting possibilities,” said Dai Tanaka, General Manager, Digital Imaging Division, Sony Electronics Asia Pacific.
The first product in the Profoto line-up to benefit from the collaboration is the Profoto Air Remote TTL-S that wirelessly integrates a Profoto Air TTL flash with selected Sony α cameras1. Air Remote TTL-S is a small, wireless radio transmitter that attaches to the Sony camera’s hotshoe. The remote allows TTL metering with any Profoto AirTTL flash. In TTL Mode, the user just points and shoots, and the Air Remote TTL-S will communicate with the flash to automatically give a perfect exposure. The Air Remote TTL-S also comes with patent-pending Profoto High-speed Sync technology – faster, more powerful and more consistent than any other HSS solution on the market.
The Air Remote TTL-S system will be available at all Sony Stores, Sony Centres and selected Sony authorised dealers from early 2017. Full technical details can be seen here.
 Current compatible cameras are α7 II, α7R II and α7S II
