Profoto Connect has three settings; auto, manual and off. In auto mode, which for those who are familiar with flash is TTL; it's just point-and-shoot. It's all very straightforward; the correct flash exposure is calculated automatically when you press the shutter. Auto is incredibly useful if the subject is moving, and the distance between the subject and the flash is changing because Profoto Connect adjusts the flash power to give you a great exposure in every shot - leaving you to think about the most important part – creating great images.
If you'd like a little more control, you can start in auto to establish a starting exposure, and then slide the Profoto Connect to manual mode to creatively fine tune it. That way you can achieve exactly the lighting effect you want. You can adjust the power on the flash unit, or from the palm of your hand. Profoto Connect links directly to the Profoto app via Bluetooth. If you can swipe your finger across the screen of your smartphone, then you can adjust the power output on your flash unit - it's that simple.
