  • Cactus V5 Transceiver x 2
  • Flash Stand (FS-5) x 2
  • 3.5mm Plug Cable (CA-350)
  • 6.35mm Plug Adapter (PA-635)
  • PC Sync Cable (CA-100)
  • AAA Battery x 4
  • Ideal for photography of any kind
  • Powered by 2 AAA 1.5V batteries, each Cactus V5 unit can serve as either a wireless flash transmitter or wireless flash receiver
  • Different transmitter/receiver combinations are now possible, giving photographers unparalleled flexibility and control over their Strobist style setups
  • Frequency Self-Tune (FST):
  • Enables Cactus V5 to automatically tune itself to its last working frequency when exposed to extreme weather conditions such as sudden and large temperature fluctuations
  • Not seen in any other solution on the market, FST effectively minimizes "no fires"
  • Multi-Channel Triggering capability:
  • Allows for simultaneous triggering of up to four (4) sets of light sources, all controlled through one transmitting unit and the camera
  • This is very useful in situations where multiple sets of flashes normally set to different channels need to beset off together for one or a series of shots
  • Other Features:
  • support for any maximum sync speed supported by camera up to 1/1000s
  • Working frequency of 2.4GHz
  • Effective range up to 100 metres
  • Implementation of a low battery indicator and 16-channel rotary dial for channel selection
  • Dual hot shoe design to allow concurrent firing of an on-camera flash
  • Together with the provided PC Sync, 3.5mm cables, and a 6.25mm plug adapter, photographers may use Cactus V5 with any** portableflash and studio strobe with trigger voltage up to 300V
  • Each Cactus V5 unit is manufactured using RoHS compliant electronic components and parts
  • Each Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V5 Duo package includes:
  • Two flashstands and a complimentary copy of "When Light Dances 2"
  • **Notes on compatibility:
  • Cactus V5 does not work with V4, V2s or V2;
  • Cactus V5 does not transmit TTL information;
  • Some dedicated flashes (e.g. Nissin Di-622 and Di-466, Sunpak PZ42x and PZ30, Sigma EF-530/500 DG ST for Canon, etc.) are triggered via system-specific pins instead of the central contact of the hot shoe. Cactus V5 does not work with these flash models. To check whether your dedicated flash units are compatible with Cactus V5, try attaching them to a camera of other brand (e.g. attaching a Nikon TTL flash to a Canon DSLR camera). If the flash can be triggered, it will work with Cactus V5

  • Buy these!

  • May 24, 2014
  • By: Benjamin

You get two transcievers. You can fire off multiple separate groups of flashes/strobes to individually light up areas or set four groups to shoot at once to light up the whole venue for group shots. This is a real argain. I will edit this to drop a star if it begins to misfire, but it has not yet misfired so I am giving this product 5 stars.

  • Easy to Use and Great Price

  • October 27, 2014
  • By: William

Really easy to use and the price was awesome! I put one on camera and my flash on another one and was able to fire my flash every single time. No misfires from 1,500 shots at an event - even at 80 metres away (I paced it out). I've upgraded to V6s for my flashes now, so I use the V5s for my camera (you have to buy a cable specific to your camera) or for my studio strobes (at least that cable comes with them). It would be nice if Henry's sold the single V5 - I only need one more.

  • Good starter set

  • March 16, 2013
  • By: Dion V

I recently acquired a set of the Cactus V5 wireless triggers and I must say I am pleased so far with them. Very easy to setup and use. They come with a set of batteries to get you started, which is nice. Obviously, a good set of AAA rechargeables should be factored in to your purchase. You'll need at least 4 (2 per unit). The set comes with two little flash stands, so you can mount your flash to the transceiver, then mount the transceiver on the stand and set it on a flat surface. Each unit also has a tripod mount, so you can mount them to a tripod/lightstand. The battery trays are a light plastic, like the rest of the body, so be careful. They slide out entirely, which makes replacing the batteries easy. The ability to control each flash individually, or create groups of flashes is a nice touch. However, the dials can be difficult to read, and can easily be changed by accident while handling the transceiver. Best to double-check your settings each time. As these are basic devices don't expect any fancy camera control for them. Just a simple trigger. Overall, nice little starter units for just over $100 after taxes at the time of this writing.

Works great, I bought two sets. All transceivers are the same, simply slide the switch to select transmit or receive. As a flash trigger, each receiver can be set to a separate channel and then the transmitter can fire each flash individually or all flashes simultaneously. Can be used as remote trigger for camera too with correct shutter cord, half press and bulb mode work too. Rotary dial for channel selection and the slide switch for transmit/off/receive are small and hard to see. Also, be sure to switch off to save batteries.

  • An inexpensive way to get your flash off your camera

  • February 23, 2012
  • By: Alicia

I recently purchased the Cactus V5 Transceiver Duo and I love it! After looking at many more expensive options I decided on purchasing the Cactus set. It gives me the freedom to get my flash off the camera without breaking the bank. It is very easy to use and simple to set up. I have found that the range was exceptional and even would fire the flash if the camera was behind a wall blocking direct line of sight to the receiver. I will be purchasing a second set just so that I can have 4 of them. I would recommend this for anyone who is just starting out with using their flash off camera. The product even comes with a great little booklet that gives you examples of how to set up your lights for the best result. The only reason that I did not give this 5 stars is that they are made of a light weight plastic and would not be good for rugged use, but keeping it in the protective box when not in use will help protect it.
