  • 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
