Paul C. Buff, Inc. announced some new wireless remote controls and a new all digital line of strobes. It looks very interesting: http://www.alienbees.c​om/cybersync.html (external link)

AC Powered Receiver? No thanks. I can't be tied down! :D

Of course, it's aimed at Bee users so it'd be good for that if it's reliable.

I only use AC powered receivers. They're attached to AC-powered strobes so it's no big deal to me. The things that interested me are the Cyber Commander Wireless controller and the CyberSync Plus. These will allow the 1/10th f/stop digital control and more for all the Buff strobes manufactured since 1986.

It's like having the controls of 600RX and the skyports but with the bee price. I'm excited about this as well. I just read about it today.

I wonder why the CyberSync™ 2.4GHz was design to operate in the same frequency range as wireless phones, wireless networks, wireless mice and Bluetooth to name a few?

I think 2.4GHz is license free band. If product is designed well if should not be a problem if other devices operate in the same band.

If you want battery power, you go with the Vagabond II:

From reading his forum, it sounds like he took a close look at the Elinchrom RX product line and heard all of the color shift complaints from his customers and decided to try to produce a new line that mimics the El's. We'll see when they are released.

This has been in the works for some time as Paul hinted about it last year. I think Paul just felt it was time to make another big splash with a new product. His original White Lightning's were innovative in their time. The Ultra series was also a big innovation and most recently the Alienbees took off.

The AB ring light is the least expensive strobe of it's kind and the Zeus line is another of his recent additions. Paul keeps coming up with new stuff on a regular basis and yes he does listen to his customers.

anyone know an est. of shots you can get out of a single charge for the Vagabond II? I didn't see it on the site info...or i looked too fast. ;-)a


Nevermind...just called them. For anyone interested... est. If you use both an AB400/800 at full power, you should get approx. 800 flashes.


Any true field numbers to on this??

I'm way jazzed about the new wireless system they have coming out... AND the fact that they're giving full credit for trade-ins of their old system! I'll be able to get into the shiny new stuff for my setup only $80.
