Cactus RF60x overview

  • 1Description

Improving upon its predecessor, the RF60x Wireless Flash from Cactus implements a new cooling mode, the ability to quick recharge at full power in just 1.9 seconds, an AF assist light in sync with other Cactus devices, and automatic wireless high-speed sync support in slave mode. The RF60x main selling point is still a built-in radio transceiver with a 328' range that is fully compatible with the Cactus V6 system and high-powered with a guide number of 183' at ISO 100 and 105mm. The flash is fully manual and has a zoom range of 24-105mm that can be expanded to 18mm with the built-in wide-angle diffuser panel. The unit also has the ability to act as either a wireless slave or master and can have its setting changed remotely via another unit or a V6 radio trigger.

The RF60x offers numerous other features for convenience, including the ability to tilt up 90° and rotate 270°. The power can be adjusted from 1/1 to 1/128 in 1/3 EV steps and it will recycle in about 0.1-1.9 seconds, depending on power and batteries. Specialized shooting modes are available, including strobe and high speed sync sympathy mode. Additionally, it runs on four AA batteries and comes with both a carrying case and stand.

    Cactus RF60x reviews

    RF60x Wireless Flash is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak battery door and wireless signal problems The battery door barely closes down, it's flimsy and unreliable. I have to tape my battery doors closed or they will pop open. The tilt/swivel movements are smooth, snug and quiet when the flash is new, however after a few months of use they become loose, sloppy and loud. I get a lot of misfires when the flash is close my V6 radio trigger, especially when I turn the camera vertically. The V6 transmitter has a long or short signal strength option but setting it to short doesn't help. This flash is OK in a non-professional environment with the battery door taped shut and at least 3 feet away from a V6 transmitter, however for the pro wedding shooter... flash misfires, tilt/swivel clicks and AA batteries spontaneously flying out of the flash will embarrass you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think this could be the best flash for the price! Really to soon to tell just how good these flashes are, I haven't used them enough as of yet... I don't think you can find a better price on a flash of this quality that has wireless radio and optical flash. The optical could be a little more sensitive but all in all, whether you are a beginner or experienced photographer, these are great speedlites and user friendly. I gave it a 4 star rating because time will tell on the durability...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off Camera Flash A pair of Cactus RF60x flash and a Cactus V6II trigger, updated to the latest firmware, works like a dream on my Pentax K3 and K50. Off camera TTL, HSS, power and zoom control. Easy, reliable non "Fiddly". I use a second V6II paired to a Pentax AF540FGZII flash. Makes life sweet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, portable, affordable flash! I am a big fan of these flashes. They are simple, work well with Canon, Sony, Panasonic (what I have tested so far anyway), work well with their remote commander, and are way cheaper than the main brand equivalents. If you want to get in to portable, off camera strobe work, these are a no brainer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All about Cactus! A couple of Cactus RF60x's paired with a V6 II is simply awesome! I would highly recommend. I'm a big Cactus fan!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value Very straightforward usage as a remote flash with a Sony a7-series camera and a Cactus V6 IIs transceiver. Flash construction is solid (although the battery door is a little flimsy, as mentioned by another reviewer), controls are reasonably intuitive, and I have had no problems with wireless communication (although I have not tested it at a range greater than 30 feet).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely recommended. I'm getting back into portrait photography and needed a good flash. The Cactus branch kept coming up as the one to get. I like the fact that I can trigger on/off camera with my K3. It has worked great so far and no mis-fires.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from RF60x Excellent Flash This flash is excellent and is well worth buying. It has worked flawlessly. The issue was with the need to change the firmware and it was easily corrected. If you purchase this flash and the Cactus V6 ll trigger make sure you go to the cactus website and confirm you have the correct firmware on the RF60x and the V6ll trigger. If you do this your purchase will work flawlessly.
