Profoto Pro-D3 Monolight

Introducing the groundbreaking Pro-D3 industrial grade monolight. Developed to address global content production needs. Profoto recognizes the increasing scale in content creation among its customers, prompting the development of the Pro-D3 to meet the evolving durability demands of high-end, high-volume image content creation.


Available in two versions, with 750Ws or 1250Ws of power at your disposal. The Pro-D3 is designed to be a relentless work horse, equipped with high-grade components through and through. With an impressive 11 f-stop flash power adjustment range and 0.1 f-stop precision, the Pro-D3 ensures unparalleled versatility, catering to the power-intensive and durability needs of high-volume shooting.

Stellar Light Quality

As for being a flash, the Pro-D3 brings the same light quality and intuitive controls as the rest of the series. It also works with Profoto’s existing line of light shaping tools, including Profoto’s newest set of quick-open softboxes.

The Pro-D3 comes in 750Ws and 1250Ws versions, each with an 11-stop range with 0.1 stop increments. The light is AC powered only and will provide very fast recycle times from 0.1-1 sec for 750Ws and 0.1-1.5 sec for 1250Ws, depending on your power source. Eco, Boost, and Freeze modes can be selected to ensure maximum longevity, maximum power, and faster flash durations. Selection of each depends on the use case. Eco is your standard mode that prioritizes longevity along with color consistency. Boost adds power and Freeze speeds up the flash duration though at some expense to color consistency.

The back of the light is where you will find all of the options and controls. The light is compatible with Profoto’s wireless AirX system and all available remotes. This allows for remote control and triggering of the strobes from the camera trigger. There is a 3.5mm sync port for wired configurations and a USB-C port for firmware updates. The Profoto Camera and Profoto Control smartphone apps can connect to the Pro-D3 via Bluetooth for yet another control option.

The Pro-D3 is an impressive light and the next step up for professional work environments. This is a monolight designed to handle the demanding needs of commercial and industrial uses similar to what might’ve required a pack like the Pro-11 in the past.
