Hi, Not sure if Bluetooth can be fast enough ..

If all else fails, it's always possible to use off-cam flash like this:

The 580ExII is been driven by a simple optical slave device, which in turn is responding to the P&S's built-in flash (behind the IR-pass filter). But you could put an RF trigger link, Tx & Rx, between the optical slave and any driven off-cam lights, Studio or Speedlites. (Hopefully 'pre-flashes' are not an issue with phone flash - if they were, you'd need some 'pre-flash ignore' tech.)Cheers, Donald
