The Profoto B1 off-camera flash has won a TIPA award. The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) is an international, non-profit association supporting the interests of the photography and imaging magazine publishing industry. This year the association has named the Profoto B1 off-camera flash the Best Professional Lighting System. The jury said: "Battery-powered and cordless, the Profoto B1 has become an instant hit with pros that understand the benefits of the freedom and facility off-camera flash shooting affords. The system’s Air Remote TTL controller attaches to the camera’s hot shoe and becomes a command center for light output and balance, even for manual settings. Each monobloc styled flash can be assigned a channel and controlled from up to 1000 feet away, with results quickly previewed, checked and modified by the photographer without leaving camera position. The 500 w/s units have a 9-stop range, very fast recycling time and LED modeling light, and are powered by a lithium-ion battery with 220 full-power flash capacity."

May 9, 2014: Each year the editors of 29 independent photographic magazines vote and award the best products introduced during the last 12 months. This year the Profoto B1 off-camera flash won the title of Best Professional Lighting System.

The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) is an international, non-profit association supporting the interests of the photography and imaging magazine publishing industry. The association represents 29 independent photographic magazines.

Each year the editors of the member magazines vote for the best products introduced to the market during the previous 12 months, taking into account innovation, cutting-edge technology, design, ease-of-use and the price to performance ratio of the products.

On April 23, 2014, TIPA named the Profoto B1 off-camera flash the Best Professional Lighting System. The motivation is as follows:

“Battery-powered and cordless, the Profoto B1 has become an instant hit with pros that understand the benefits of the freedom and facility off-camera flash shooting affords. The system’s Air Remote TTL controller attaches to the camera’s hot shoe and becomes a command center for light output and balance, even for manual settings.

Each B1 lamp is $1,995.00
TTL Air Remote is $395.00
and the battery is $400.00

It seems that TiPA, (Technical image Press Association) doesn't take this into consideration. It's not a Speed-light, it's not a Mono-light and every required component is an additional accessory, and they do not come cheap, but they can be Rented anywhere. That seems to be the best option, because you will need three of these units to accomplish anything that resembles a Pro Photographer's results. Of the 29 Photo Magazines that make up TiPA, I wonder how many of them will be advertising this new breed of "Off Camera Flash"
