Setting up Paul C. Buff strobes to the Raven

To connect your Paul C. Buff Einstein flashes to the Raven using the Buff brand, you will need to use Paul C. Buff receivers CyberSync™ AC Powered Plus Receiver, CyberSync™ Battery Powered Plus Receiver, or CyberSync™ Transceiver.  The Raven has direct connection to the LINK strobe.  No Paul C. Buff brand receiver is needed.

 

For setup with the Raven

  • To set up your Raven to trigger Paul C. Buff lighting equipment, start from the Zone Control Display and swipe from bottom to top of the touchscreen. 
  • Then rotate dial to the Brand icon and tap on it.  
  • Scroll through the 1st column using the command ring dial until Buff is in the white space, then press   
  • Now you can select the channel based on the least amount of RF Noise available (most green in the scale), and press .  Be sure to set the same channel into your Buff lighting equipment.
  • Press Back/Home button to return to Zone Control Display.
  • To set the channel on the CyberSync AC Powered Plus Receiver and the CyberSync Battery Powered Plus Receiver, turn the Frequency dial to the matching channel number on the Raven.
  • To set the zone on the CyberSync AC Powered Plus Receiver and the CyberSync Battery Powered Plus Receiver, turn the Frequency dial to the matching channel number on the Raven
  • When using the CyberSync Transceiver for the Einstein strobes, you will need set the channel and zone on the Einstein unit via the Einstein’s built-in LCD. 
  • To set the channel, press the Einstein’s Function button until the Channel selection box is highlighted
  • The Einstein's LCD will display C-TL 01.  Now change channels with the Adjust buttons.  
  • Press the Function button again to specify a zone. You can only specify zone 1-4 since that is all the Raven allows.  You are now ready to start shooting
