Paul C Buff CyberSense

American lighting manufacturer Paul C. Buff has announced a new studio flash controller called the CyberSense.

It is a handheld remote that can be used to adjust the flash and modelling lamp power on up to four Alien Bees, DigiBees, Einstein or White Lightning flashes connected to CyberSync wireless triggers. Unusually, it has a touch-and-slide control system rather than a dial or up-and-down buttons.

Adjustment is possible in 1/10-stop increments, range is 300 feet and the unit takes two AAA batteries. There are 16 channels from which to choose.

In what looks like a bit of a missed opportunity (compared to the Godox XPro or Jinbei TR-Q6), the CyberSense doesn’t have a hotshoe foot so you can’t use it as your primary trigger, unless you connect it to your camera’s PC sync port. However, you can use the Cyber Commander for triggering plus remote control, or the CyberSync Trigger Transmitter for simple triggering.

Order the CyberSense now for $79.95 directly from Paul C. Buff.
