question

Will this Flash pair with a Sony: FA-WRC1M Commander?
Asked by: Ricardo M.
The Cactus RF60x Wireless Flash is not directly compatible for use with the Sony FA-WRC1M Wireless Radio Commander. The 2.4 GHz radio transceiver in the Cactus RF60x Wireless Flash is only compatible with the Cactus V6 IIs, V6 II, V6, V5, and the Laser Trigger LV5 wireless flash transceivers. In order to use the Cactus RF60x Wireless Flash with the Sony FA-WRC1M Wireless Radio Commander, you would have to purchase the Sony FA-WRR1 Wireless Radio Receiver to connect to the bottom of the Cactus flash.
