The Flashpoint APP operates in tandem with the Flashpoint R2 Pro Mark II transmitter as a mobile phone gateway to the graphical control of the R2 2.4GHz Wireless Radio Remote TTL System. The combination links seamlessly to a wide range of Flashpoint professional flash and LED products, from the mighty Rapid 1200 AC monolight to the lithium powered XPLOR’s and eVOLV’s portable strobes and on to the Zoom and Streaklight speedlights – all for use with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm and Panasonic/Olympus cameras.
The FP APP expands the capabilities of your built-in smartphone camera to gain membership in the R2 Family. Capture like never before as part of the most expansive, elite club of flash and LED available for the imaging world.
Every aspect of lighting nuance is before you on the screen; exposure, mode, modeling lamp, audio tones, stroboscopic range, as well as the 32 secure channels and 16 group designations. You can set it, test it, change it and memorize the stored settings for future events. Customize the R2 Family experience as you want it, without ever getting near your gear. No less than 16 pages of micromanagement of every exacting parameter relating to your lighting for studio or on location. It’s the discerning photographer’s dream come true.

Ratings and Reviews
No landscape view
For real estate photographers it would be helpful to have the landscape view when we use this on our iPads in a shoulder case. I don’t use the app because of this feature not being available.
AWB does not work, displays whatever the last manually selected WB was/is.
AWB for my local iPhone 10XS Max Camera does not work in this app at all. The App fails 100% on this front - forcing me to manually select WB from the App’s preset options. Once one has been selected if you try the “AWB” again it will show the output based on the previous manually selected option so it is definitely NOT AWB. Switching to Incandescent and then to AWB will yield the exact same result (note only after selecting “Incandescent” at least one time prior to setting AWB). If I attempt AWB to begin with the colors are unacceptably poor. There’s Simply Not enough QA on this App. Note that I got this App for the Wireless Flash Control options, I didn’t even know it had a phone Camera function… Personally I would remove that function until it actually works and focus QA efforts towards the Flash Control aspect as that is clearly *the selling point here*. To be fair there may be some customers that use an iPad/phone camera for RealEstate and need to use Real Flashes but the majority of users are here for granular control over R2 Pro controlled strobes and GoDox units. That *really* that needs to work before releasing the iPad/iPhone Camera feature in the App. On the strobe/flash control side I’m still testing the App with my AD200’s and Sony mounted R2ProMark2. I’ll provide more feedback as needed.
Works Great for me
I’m not certain how the other folks who rated the app use it, but I’ve not had any issues for my purposes. I primarily use it to control the Power values on 5 or 6 GODOX and Flashpoint mono-lights at a time for my DSLR - don’t use the camera option at all. It quickly connects to the trigger and allows easily changing values for any group. I especially like the ability to put any group in standby mode which makes testing a single group at a time very easy. The function to export and import all settings at once along with a photo of the result is handy since I use multiple cameras and multiple triggers at the same time.
