Yup, the brand new Paul C Buff Cybersense remote may be all you need.
It’s fairly rare that we hear announcements from Paul C Buff, but the new Paul C Buff Cybersense remote is designed to be an affordable way to control a number of flashes, receivers and lights from the manufacturer. The maker of Alienbees, White Lightning and Einstein lights says the new Cybersense isn’t larger than a smartphone.
The Paul C Buff Cybersense trigger is a handheld device that can be used to control the output of both the flash and modeling lamp on up to four of the company’s lights. It’s compatible with all the previous products and can interact with all of them from up to 300 feet away on a 2.4 GHz radio. To do this, the photographer will use the touch sliders and three button control layout.
This remote doesn’t mount onto your camera, but instead is something you hold and work with. What this means is if you’re using something like PocketWizard or Yongnuo transmitters and receivers, you can then just control the light with this remote as Buff’s own triggers are the only things that would work otherwise.
