What is the power of the Profoto C1 Plus and C1 in Ws / How powerful is Profoto C1 Plus/C1 compared to Profoto A1/B10/etc.?

We cannot provide a relevant comparison, in part because smartphones capture images in another way than Interchangeable Lens Cameras do, exposing the sensor bit by bit. The Profoto C1 Plus and C1 flash needs to cover this whole sequence, and therefore requires longer flash duration. This is what the C1/C1 Plus are optimized for. Which is not the case for Profoto’s xenon flashes.


Xenon and LED technologies have different lm/W efficiencies, which further complicates a direct comparison.
