Cactus LV5 is a laser trigger that enables high speed photography and wildlife camera traps. Whether you are interested in capturing beautiful water droplets, facial expressions of athletes at the finish line from multiple angles or wildlife movements caught in the act, the LV5 Laser Trigger can create unforgettable images with ease.
Laser and Radio Trigger: With over a year of research and development, Cactus created a device that is unique in the market: it combined laser and radio frequency technology in one compact package. Aside from a light stand, tripod and shutter release cable for your camera, the LV5 is all you need to capture that specific event. Weighing just over 300 grams and requiring only four (4) AAA batteries to power both the LV5 Emitter and Sensor, it is possibly the most versatile laser trigger to date.
Cactus V5, V6 and RF60 Compatible: The LV5 is a Class 1 laser device that triggers your camera’s shutter either by direct wired connection or wirelessly via the embedded Cactus RF module. Since the LV5 runs on the same channels as the V5, V6 and RF60, it can also trigger flash units with V5 and V6 transceivers or an RF60 directly, which is very convenient for high-speed photography.
Trap & Escape: Trap Mode and Escape Mode are the two triggering modes of the LV5. Just like their names imply: Trap Mode captures an image when the laser is broken by an object while Escape Mode is triggered when an object leaves the laser and signal is detected by the Sensor. The camera can take a single shot or multiple shots as desired.
Delay & Freeze Timers: Another unique feature of LV5 is the ability to customize Delay and Freeze periods. This gives precise control over the exact time the camera releases the shutter after detecting an event. There are 15 selectable time delays. The Delay period can be set from 1ms to 400ms while the Freeze period is from 20ms to 4 seconds.
Main features of the LV5:
It doesn’t matter if you are a wildlife photographer, an amateur or a professional who shoots in the studio, the LV5 is your best companion when accuracy and timing are vital to the shutter release. LV5 captures that instinctive action or freezes the split-second of amusement. Get yours today and liberate your ideas!
