Always USofA

I'm pretty sure that 70-80% of FS readers are not from the USA! But they (almost) never offered them something :P
You know it's like iOS and Android: 70-80% of the market is Android but Apps come either exclusive for iPhones/iPads or first to iOS :D looool

Well I have iPhone :D

According to FStoppers in 2013 - The USA accounts for 42.67% of their traffic. Second place is Canada at 7.82%. If you understand how worldwide distribution works for these companies, it's obvious why the distributor (Profoto US Inc.) doesn't offer the prize to the UK (Profoto Ltd.) - they're different companies.

If Paul Buffy talks smack about it, it must be a great thing.

His comments were interesting to say the least. I think he dismisses this product because it doesn't fall in line with what he's making: powerful flash units at an affordable price. Profoto can charge what they want because, well, they're Profoto and people will pay for the branding. It's the same old story of mass vs. high-end production. Buff mentions that he had thought of this idea (as I'm sure a million other photographer's have as well) years ago and I suspect that aside from his stated reasons, he wagered that a product like this couldn't be made at a price point his customers would buy.

wait...what? I need to see these comments. Anyone have a link?

Jaron Schneider's picture

Yeah I want to see these too. I missed em!

I read his comments and was able to see his POV. Though these flash units offer a lot in the way convenience, they do seem to be begging a question regarding it's role in the studio where PCB's rock. That said, I want them.....desperately. Being able to QUICKLY TTL lighting then move to manual and modify as desired - yes please. Also, even more important is the announcement that they plan to offer high speed sync functionality in the first quarter of 2014 with a firmware upgrade. THESE WIN.

Damn you, I want a green card.

Sucks doesn't it?

Why is it that you always have to have a FB Account for these

Why do you have to be over 18?! some of us are under 18 and are professional photogtphers!

Legal age here in the US.

isn't 21???

Nope, you can enter legal binding contracts and considered a legal adult at 18. 21 is just to party hard at a bar.

No love for Canada...


crossing fingers

Nooooo, not 18 yet :(

I've been wanting one of these... just too far out of my price range. :(

Unfortunately non-US residents are not eligible to participate. That reeeaaally sucks.

Awesome, Done !!!!

when are you going worldwide? internet is worldwideweb... and your offer or promo are within USofA, you should have intranet within USA not internet

Al Gore is American.

Profoto has ditributors all over the world ! Still an "international website" limits the allowed participats like that. Sad ....

Jaron Schneider's picture

This contest is specifically sponsored by Profoto USA. They each have their own distribution channels and budget. Of course we are sorry for those who can't enter due to the restrictions, but unfortunately it's how it has to work :(

Dear Jaron,

Thanks for commenting. I know it's not "your fault". It's only somehow strange that e.g. all the German or French give-away-actions I see are always worldwide and here on FS the really cool ones are always restricted :-) One days there will be an international one, I am sure :-)



Would love to win like 4 or 5 of theses. But 1 would still be cool.
