I don't have a smartphone. Don't really want one. Are all functions accessible without a smartphone?
Asked by: Edward
Nope. You won't be able to use the remote control function. If you have the instrument behind something or up high you will have to use the panel control. You can't use the color picker to match the lights color with the phones camera. You can't gang a bunch of most all of Apertures band of lights together to have a lighting board in your hand. Do you have an ipad or an Android tablet? You could probably use that. The app adds 1/2 the usability. But ya I use mine without the app sometimes. It app made me reconsider other brands going forward. It's a great little lite.
