Title: SOLD: Profoto B1 500 AirTTL - UK
Post by: gazwas on March 15, 2014, 05:54:29 pm
I have for sale my Profoto battery lighting gear, in beautiful, full working condition and cosmetically like new. The kit is is the UK.

I have available:

- Profoto B1 500 AirTTL complete as new (Li-Ion Battery, Charger 2.8A, Bag XS), original box that is three months old - 1295

The new (released December 2013) B1 500 AirTTL needs very little introduction with all the internet buzz going on about it at the moment but in brief it gives a liberating cable free operation as the battery is mounted on the head. Full LCD readout of all the settings and offers full Air Remote control from the camera. With the addition of the Air Remote TTL-C, Canon cameras get full TTL operation that really does work.

Photographs to follow...........

I think that might be because of this:

1295.00 GBP = 2,146.19 USD

Here in the UK with our wonderful 20% VAT, new B1's will set you back 1554 (what I paid) and was hoping someone closer to home might have wanted a nice discount on a basically new B1 head with warranty.

However, no great loss if it doesn't make what I'm after as it's a really nice head to own and use.

Whilst there are a handful of EU people on the forum, I suspect the vast majority is from/in the US. Perhaps http://www.talkphotography.co.uk/forums/?

Thanks for the info but as I'm in desperate need to sell it super quickly, I'll just hope someone in the UK/EU wants a B1 and finds my post.

Or if they are U.K. Based and a working professional then vat registered, so it's not cheap enough for me (though fine if you are not)

You could always make me an offer?

Boxed as new, original invoice provided so 20 months warranty remaining and only been charged three times.
