Remote control

I changed settings in Remote Control, but the changes will not turn up in the Camera. Why?
The Remote Control functionality lets you remotely control your Profoto device when creating images with a DSLR or mirrorless camera. If you are creating images with Profoto Camera, change the settings directly inside the Camera.
