Silicone skins protect Profoto TTL remotes

Third-party bumper cases are now available for the Profoto Air Remote TTL.

Silicone skin for Profoto Air Remote TTL

Worried about breaking your expensive Profoto radio transmitter? Keep it safe with this protective silicone skin.

The colourful covers are designed for the Profoto Air Remote TTL flash triggers, including the TTL-N, TTL-C, TTL-S and TTL-F.

Available in red, black and white, they are just $15 on AliExpress. According to the product description, the silicone covers will protect the Air Remote from drops, dust and moisture. The different colours may also help you distinguish whose gear is whose in a shared studio.

Personally, I don’t take special care of my flash triggers—just throwing them in my camera bag—and have not broken one yet. I don’t know whether or not this particular model has a reputation for being fragile and needing extra protection from an aftermarket accessory. But if you’ve already paid $429 for a radio transmitter, maybe better safe than sorry?
