If I only want to use this in Auto, do I still need an iphone 7 or greater? Can I update the connect w/o the iphone App?
Asked by: rhonda
If you don't want to change settings using the app, the transmitter will be set to channel one, group A. You can still change strobe settings on the strobe itself. You'll need the app to update the firmware.
