  • LV5 Sensor
  • LV5 Hood
  • 3.5mm Plug Cable
  • PC Sync Cable
  • Shutter Delay and Freeze
  • Cactus LV5 is a laser trigger that allows you to do high speed photography and wildlife camera traps
  • Whether you are interested in capturing beautiful water droplets, facial expressions of athletes at the finish line from multiple angles, or wildlife movements caught in the act, the LV5 Laser Trigger can create unforgettable images with ease.
  • Laser and Radio Trigger:
  • Combined laser and radio frequency technology in one compact package Aside from a light stand, tripod and a shutter release cable for your camera (All Sold Separately), the LV5 is all you need to capture that specific spectacle
  • Weighing at just over 300 grams and requiring only four (4) AAA batteries to power both the LV5 Emitter and Sensor
  • Cactus V5 Compatible:
  • The LV5 is a Class 1 laser device that triggers your camera's shutter either by direct wired connection or wirelessly via the embedded Cactus V5 RF module
  • Since the LV5 runs on the same channels as the V5, it can also trigger flash units with V5 transceivers, a very convenient way for high-speed photography
  • Trap & Escape:
  • Trap Mode and Escape Mode are the two triggering modes of the LV5
  • Trap Mode captures an image when the laser is broken by an object
  • Escape Mode happens when the object leaves the laser and signal is detected by the Sensor
  • The camera can take a single shot or multiple shots as desired
  • Delay & Freeze Timers:
  • What makes the LV5 unique and desirable is the ability to customize Delay and Freeze periods
  • This gives precise control over the exact time the camera releases the shutter after detecting an event
  • There are 15 selectable time delays
  • The Delay period can be set from 1ms to 400ms while the Freeze period is from 20ms to 4 seconds
  • Main features of the LV5:
  • Duo Mode Triggering (DMT): Cactus LV5 can be triggered by: (1) blocking the transmission between the laser Emitter and Sensor; or (2) removing the object between the laser Emitter and Sensor
  • Works wirelessly with Cactus V5 and subsequent V5-compatible models: Cactus LV5 combines laser and radio frequency (RF) technology in a single device. With a built-in Cactus V5 transceiver module in the Sensor, LV5 allows you to take instant camera photos with unlimited number of portable flashes, wirelessly
  • Long working distance: The working distance between the laser Emitter and the Sensor is up to 150 meters
  • Works under sunlight: The LV5 not only works under ambient light, its intelligent design also allows it to work under sunlight
  • Supports single and continuous shots: Supports bulb shot. The LV5 offers endless possibilities for your creative works

  • Perfect for High Speed Photography

  • November 27, 2014

I picked these up after seeing them in that awesome PhotoNews magazine that's free at Henry's. So far, I've shot really cool waterdrops with them and splashing fruit in a glass. This winter, I'm going to take these triggers to the terrain park to setup a remote camera on one of the jumps before I hit it! It works wirelessly with my V6 and a camera cable to fire my Nikon from distance. And the delay mode built-in means I can keep the laser beam out of the frame of the shot.
