Can anyone tell me what the cable/port is on the 645 XF to allow the camera to be triggered by a remote trigger connected by cable. The camera itself needs to then trigger the studio flash via a wireless hotshoe trigger.
Many thanks.

The port used is 12-pin port on the side of the XF body. There are two release cable options:

1. The Phase One Break Out Box which also allows you to connect additional accessories or external power. (item number 73130000)

2. The Phase One release cable from Hahnel - HRX-280 Pro (item number 73203000)

Triggering a Capture with the Profoto Remote
You can use a Profoto Remote unit to trigger a capture with the XF Camera remotely as well as firing the flash system during the capture. For this to work correctly, you need set the Transmit Channel and the Receive Channel to two different channels and make sure that the Profoto Remote controller matches the Receive Channel and the Profoto Air flash system matches the Transmit Channel.
To setup the Transmit Channel and the Receive Channel, press the Rear Key and select Capture Setup > Profoto. Then select either the Transmit Channel or the Receive Channel and turn the Side Dial to select the desired channels.

Note that you can set both the Transmit Channel and the Receive Channel to Off. If you set the Transmit Channel to Off, the XF Camera will not trigger a flash system, and you can use the Profoto Remote as just an external wireless trigger when you do not need a flash. Likewise, you can set the Receive Channel to Off if you do not want to ability to trigger a capture remotely, but still need the XF Camera to trigger the Profoto flash system.
