Cactus LV5 overview

  • 1Description

The Cactus LV5 Laser Trigger utilizes an emitter and sensor that can be set up to trigger a camera or flash unit upon changes in the beam's signal. The sensor features an embedded 2.4 GHz Cactus V5 radio module that has 16 channels and a range of up to 328' as well as a standard 3.5mm shutter release port for making a physical connection to certain cameras. Also, the emitter and sensor can work with a large 492' distance between them for more elaborate setups.

The LV5 works either with Cactus V5 compatible transceivers or modules or by connecting directly to a compatible camera or flash unit with the included 3.5mm cord. It features Duo Mode Triggering for providing the option of triggering when either the transmission is blocked or when an object is removed from between the sensor and emitter. The device also supports flash sync speeds up to 1/1000 second and offers a variety of shutter delay and freeze settings for customizing your setup. You can set the trigger to single, continuous, and bulb shot modes in coordination with your camera and each device runs on either 2 or 4 AAA batteries.

    Cactus LV5 reviews

    LV5 Laser Trigger is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Come On Cactus Got my trigger today. It seems simple enough and the laser works ...but I can't use it. The trigger release cable for Nikon is not included. Just like the previous reviewer that had to buy a cable for Canon, I need to buy a Nikon 10 pin release cable in order to use it. So it sits idle while I wait for the cable. I don't mind paying for the cable but wish I had know up front ... I would have ordered it with the laser.. B&H...as a courtesy to future buyers please clarify your web page. Thanks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well The attached image was made with the help of the LV5 and the Cactus V5. As packaged, the V5 does not include the cable needed to connect to Canon cameras. I purchased one elsewhere. The design-for-human-use of the Cactus system is a bit rough on the edges, but the system works.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good functionality, cold show mounting could be better built This product works very well for my intend uses but is not compatible with a Cactus v6 in relay mode so I have to use one of V6 to trigger my camera and that takes one of my secondary flashes out of the equation. Unfortunately I will have to buy a v5 to use as a camera trigger.
