Huawei P20 Pro and FB tube programming

Post by photosbykev » 22.07.2018 12:46

Hi,

I'm interested in buying the FB tube for use with my Canon 5D4 and range of Canon lens.

I use a Huawei P20 Pro smartphone which doesn't have a 3.5mm audio output but it does have an IR transmitter built into it.

Has anyone had some success using this phone to programme the FB tube?

regards

No, unfortunately, the built-in transmitter will not work. We’ve made tests on P20 recently, but faced problems configuring the tube due to low signal strength which is not sufficient for successful data transmission. In a couple of weeks we plan to launch sales of a modified tube that will use different connection principle. We assume P20 should work fine with this new tube and USB to 3.5mm jack adapter.
