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.

Great when it works!

As others have said, great concept. Unfortunately, I have this running on my iPad Pro at my fixed tethering station. I usually power on one light at a time and every time I power an additional light, I have to quit this app and relaunch it for it to find the new added light (s). Works about half the time. I work tethered in an indoor 15’x15’ space. I spend more time restarting this app and reconnecting to Capture One than I do taking photos! There is a button to discover additional Hubs, but not additional lights?

I set this up with a Buff Hub and 1 einstein strobe with no problem. Shot it a few times with that setupand it worked fine, the hub and strobe came up quickly and smoothly.

Then i tried to connect the second strobe and everything stopped working, even after rebooting everything all i got was spinny wheel in the app and couldn’t trigger either strobe any more.

That’s when i uninstalled this app and the $200 buff hub went back for a refund.

The quest for semi-reliable wireless flash trigger continues

Zero stars if possible.

Every time Paul Buff updates the app, it’s nothing but firmware errors when trying to update your Hub and your Link. Every. Singe. Time. Unacceptable.
