In the past, I’ve always been able to tell the difference between the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 and the EF 70–200mm f/2.8. However, when I got ahold of the new RF 70–200mm f/2.8, I was blown away.

By using professional lights such as the A10 and B10 to control the light, the divide between mobile and traditional cameras are becoming even more blurred. In this video/article, I’ll be demonstrating mobile photography lighting using the Profoto A10 via the Profoto Camera App.
