The Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V5 (Cactus V5), like its predecessors, remains powerful and reliable and is ideal for photography of any kind. Sporting a transceiver design and powered by 2 AAA 1.5V batteries, each Cactus V5 unit can serve as either a wireless flash transmitter or wireless flash receiver. Different transmitter/receiver combinations are now possible, giving photographers unparalleled flexibility and control over their strobist setups.

Frequency Self-Tune (FST), a new and groundbreaking feature, enables Cactus V5 to automatically tune itself to its last working frequency when exposed to extreme weather conditions such as sudden extreme temperature changes. Not available from any other solution on the market, FST effectively minimizes "no fires" in the most challenging of environments.
Multi-Channel Triggering, another new feature, allows simultaneous triggering of up to four (4) sets of light sources, all controlled through one transmitting unit and camera. This is very useful in situations where multiple sets of flashes normally set to different channels need to be set off together for one or a series of shots.
Other improvements in Cactus V5 include support for maximum sync speeds supported by your camera up to 1/1000s for Nikon, 1/250s for Canon, working frequency of 2.4GHz, effective range up to 100 meters, addition of a low battery indicator, 16-channel rotary dial for channel selection and dual hot shoe design to allow concurrent firing of an on-camera flash. With the provided PC Sync and 3.5mm cables plus 6.25mm plug adapter, photographers may use Cactus V5 with any** portable flash and studio strobe with trigger voltage up to 300V.
Each Cactus V5 unit is manufactured using RoHS compliant electronic components and parts. For more details, read the Cactus V5's RoHS Statement.
