iPhone Screenshots


The Buff Flash Control app was created to help photographers take control of their lighting setups directly from their phone.


Use the HUB remote to find Paul C. Buff, Inc. flash units in your setup. Once added to your setup, you can control the power outputs of both the flash and modeling lamp, turn them on/off directly from your phone, and save your setups for future use.

Update the firmware of the LINK800WS Flash Unit directly from the app using the HUB remote.

*Note: The Buff Flash Control app is only compatible with the Paul C. Buff, Inc. HUB remote and Paul C. Buff, Inc. flash units (AlienBees and newer). At this time this app is only capable of controlling the flash and model light outputs and saving lighting setups. Additional features are in development and will be released periodically.

I love the concept but this app and/or the HUB often disconnect from a light or two…or more…without alerting you. On the app, the light still appears to be connected so you’ll adjust your light output a tiny bit, take a shot, no change. Adjust it a little more, take a shot, no change. Then the frustrating realization that the changes indicated in the app didn’t effect light output at all. And don’t even think about using your phone for Bluetooth ANYTHING and expect it to stay connected to the HUB. I’ve spent far too much time eliminating interference and trouble shooting. I’m done with Buff Inc. This flaky system ( the app and the fairly expensive HUB unit that is useless without the app ) destroys the flow of a shoot.



App is practically useless. Communication drops far too often to reliably utilize the hub system. Fantastic concept, but dreadful execution so far. If this cannot be corrected then I will move on to a different lighting system. Very disappointed.

Not ready for consumer use

At best 5 minutes before it stops communicating with lights. Pretty useless system at the moment
