What is the Wireless Flash RF60?
The Wireless Flash RF60 is a manual portable flash with a built-in Cactus V6 Wireless Transmitter + Receiver.
What are the advantages of using Wireless Flash RF60?
Simplicity. With the transceiver built-in, the RF60 can receive wireless triggering signals from a Cactus V6 or V5 flash trigger and fire without having to attach another external receiver to the flash. When used with Cactus V6, both power output and zoom level of the RF60 can be adjusted remotely by Cactus V6.
The RF60 itself, thanks to its built-in V6 transceiver, can function as a commander to control other RF60 flashes. If you use an RF60 on a camera hot shoe, you can wirelessly control other off-camera RF60s without using ANY other flash triggers.
Built-in wireless commander and receiver
The Cactus RF60 is a 2.4GHz radio-based wireless portable flash with a built-in transceiver that runs on 16 channels. It operates in three modes: Local for on-camera operation and Master or Slave mode for off-camera. To act as a commander, set your RF60 to Master and it can trigger an unlimited number of RF60s set to Slave mode. The effective distance between the Master RF60 and Slave RF60 is up to 100m (328 feet).
Remote control of power and zoom levels
The power levels of the RF60 set in Slave mode can be adjusted from 1/128 to 1/1 full power in steps of 0.3EV. Zoom levels can also be controlled from 24mm wide to 105mm zoom. With remote power and zoom control, you can place RF60 units in hard-to-reach places and control their power and zoom level wirelessly.
Group control of up to four groups with configurable Group Alias
In a typical lighting setup, the ability to adjust, activate and deactivate groups of lights is vital in creating the desired lighting effect. The RF60 can be configured into four distinct groups. Power output can be adjusted in individual groups, multiple groups or in all the groups at the same time for fast adjustments. To streamline the shooting experience, you can rename each group to one of: KEY, FILL, SPOT, RIM, HAIR, LEFT, RIGHT, BACK and FRONT instead of remembering the placement of flash groups A, B, C and D.
Optical Slave with delay feature
The RF60 has a built-in optical sensor. The optical sensor captures pre-flash signals that are being emitted earlier than the flash sync. By setting the pre-flash optical trigger and the delay timer, you can set the exact time for the flash to start firing. This allows the RF60 to fire first-curtain and second-curtain sync (also referred to as front and rear curtain), but RF60 can also fire at any given point of the image.
High power Guide Number of 56 meters
The RF60 has a powerful guide number of 56 metres/184 feet at ISO100. The Fresnel lens was specifically designed to maximize light output.
Compatible with Cactus V6 Wireless Flash Transceiver
Flash power output on RF60 Slave units can be controlled by an RF60 Master as well as Cactus V6 Flash Transceivers. Cactus V5 also supports basic flash triggering on the RF60 but does not support power output control on the RF60.
In Multi mode, a rapid series of flashes is fired to capture multiple images of a moving subject in a single frame. This feature is available in all three flash modes so you can create the desired effects with both on and off camera flash.
HSS Sympathy mode
HSS Sympathy mode of the RF60 is designed to support flash photography at shutter speeds beyond a camera’s maximum sync speed. With the help of a TTL flash mounted on camera, can RF60 fire flashes with an extended duration in order to produce even frame illumination at shutter speeds as high as 1/8000 second.
The RF60 is meant for use in a multiple flash setup and is designed with the needs of professional photographers in mind.
Whether it’s a wedding or commercial shoot, timing is crucial. RF60 users will not only find adjustments quick and easy, the LCD also displays all the necessary information a photographer needs to know. Overall, RF60 offers an intuitive flash photography experience. So you, as the photographer, don't waste time fiddling with the gear but instead enjoy the shooting experience.
