Canon 1D X users, the Profoto B1 will now TTL with your camera (update: not!)

Profoto has released an Air Remote TTL-C firmware update for the B1, but there's still no date for HSS or i-TTL support.

Following a quick teaser before the weekend, Profoto has released new firmware for the B1 AirTTL flash system. The update, which is installed on the Air Remote TTL-C transmitter, enables support for TTL metering with the Canon EOS-1D X.

Update: Or that was the plan, anyway. But it turns out that Profoto didn’t iron out all the bugs and it doesn’t work on the 1D X after all. Back to the drawing board! The update is no longer available.

Looking for high-speed sync or Nikon support? Profoto says: “As promised, both the HSS upgrade and the Air Remote TTL-N will be released in 2014. Stay tuned for more info on that.”
