Cactus V5 overview

  • 1Description

The Wireless Flash Transceiver V5 Single from Cactus is a 16 channel transceiver that will trigger your flash or camera wirelessly at distances up to 328' when used with another separately purchased V5. The transceiver features a hot shoe foot and a female hot shoe for on-camera use with or without a flash mounted on it. A 1/4"-20 female thread on the underside of the transceiver allows mounting to a stand, clamp or other accessory, while the included mini-pin cable and phono plug adapters facilitate connection to remote devices. Sync speeds up to 1/1,000 second are possible with capable cameras.

The simplified intuitive design offers simple push button functions and easy dial selection of channels. The V5 Multi-Channel Triggering function allows firing of up to 4 sets of flashes separately or simultaneously. Frequency Self-Tune (FST) technology insures reliable performance in even the harshest operating conditions.

The system is compatible with a wide range of flashes that includes Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Metz, Sigma and more. Select cameras within these brands that accept trigger release cords can also be fired remotely.

    Cactus V5 reviews

    Wireless Flash Transceiver V5 Single is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good enough to use it I use it with Quantum Q- flashes. For quick set up and portraits on location and outside. First notice - it's bigger then I thought. Second - really easy to set up. I like the way how batteries plugged in, you can change it without removing from camera or strobe. Reliable design. Quick and neat work. Not very convenient to clamp the hot shoe and what channel settings easily knock off accidentally. But it's not a problem, just needed to be careful. What can I say, it worth its money. I bought 3 and have plans to buy one or two more.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would recommend it, but... I didn't want to spend the money for Pocketwizard and a friend of mine told me that Cactus was doing a good job. I bought it and now I've use them 4 times. The problem is that it looks like they go in pause, like they would have a standby position and they stop working during that time. So I have to switch them of and on again..Maybe it's just me. I'm using a DSLR Canon 6D and my flash is a Polaroid. Maybe is because it is not a Canon Flash

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V5 Sin This product does exactly as advertised. It is not a high end device with all of the controls of some of the new more expensive units that are available. If you are looking for a transceiver that works immediately without a complicated setup and is extremely effective this is your unit. I would purchase it again and do recommend it to ours.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well This is my 3rd Cactus trigger. I have never had any issues with them. My only knock on them is it can be a little difficult to turn the lock to tighten to the hot or cold shoe mount.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shutter Trigger Cactus system is fantastic. Use it with my Fuji kit. Bought this to trigger the shutter. Works perfect.
