Key features*:

View and control all Profoto Connect, B10, B10 Plus or A10 settings from your smartphone screen. Touch, swipe and tweak until you get the light just right.

The latest Profoto Connect, B10, B10 Plus or A10 updates are now available at your fingertips. Update quickly from the app, so you are ready to shoot with the latest, improved firmware.

Never connects. Always get the error "cannot connect to server". I try to defend Profoto against the Chinese knock offs, but Profoto definitely dropped the ball trying to play catch up. Having the ability to control the lights from the phone was part of the reason I purchased the lights. I will be returning the strobes since the app doesn't connect (using Android, multiple devices same problem).

(update with beta version of Android) This last weekend I tested the system using my Samsung Galaxy, and a pair of B10s, B10+ and the Connect with a on and off mix of A1x units. The good - speed. Being able to run around, position myself and dim, control and adjust my lights without breaking stride is great. The ability to control the system is very beneficial of course. Update you soon.

With the new update, my B10s now connect through the app. As advertised, I can now fully control the settings from my phone and I was able update/register each OCF with the app. Thank you for notifying me when the update was released. Though not the sole reason I chose to purchase the B10s, the bluetooth connectivity and ability to control the flashes from my phone gives me more flexibility while on site or in the studio. Ill be happy to test and offer feedback in the future.
