*When using Canon R, R3, R5, and R6 mirrorless camera bodies and using TTL metering mode with a shutter speed above the camera model X-Sync speed, the only flash compatible is a Canon Speedlite inserted into a FlexTT5 or FlexTT6. This is due to strobe manufacturers not offering an adequate adjustable valued pre-flash command for TTL mode which results in metering exposure error within the Canon mirrorless camera bodies. The FlexTT5 and FlexTT6 can trigger a quick pre-flash necessary for use with Canon Speedlites set to TTL.

Profoto strobes operate on a TTL-based operating protocol that allows the photographer to use TTL or Manual mode and allows for the ability to send exact power levels to the strobes. Why the AirTTL does not offer this is unknown, but this does give the Raven an advantage by offering this feature where the AirTTL fails to deliver.

However, within the Profoto TTL operating protocol there is a 4 stop power level limit that prevents power levels from exceeding more than 4 stops no matter if you are using TTL or Manual mode. Why this Profoto limitation exists is not quite known, but it makes sense that the AirTTL is only capable of only performing simple .1 or full stop adjustments. This 4 stop limit does create a limitation for the Raven since many photographers want more than a 4 stop range in their lighting. This issue exists in Dual Brand triggering when using Profoto and another strobe brand.

It is recommend to deactivate any zones that you are not using so the power level in that unused zone will not effect this 4 stop power limit.

*Up to 500ws power capable in TTL mode. Full power range coming soon
**Not compatible when using TTL mode
