Cactus Wireless Trigger V5
What is a Cactus V5 Trigger and how do you use them? Tom explains for you in the following Cactus V5 Video Review.
The Cactus V5 Triggers are a fantastic product and great value for the price, with a range of up to 100 meters and able to have a flash sync speed of up to 1/1000 (dependant on camera flash sync speed). Each trigger is a powered by 2x AAA batteries, and each trigger is a receiver and transmitter, so you don't need to muck around making sure you've got the right bit on the camera and flash!
The Cactus V5 Trigger automatically tunes itself to the right frequency and it can trigger up to 4 sets of light sources from the one trigger on the camera. If you need a wireless trigger set but don't want to fork out hundreds for a PocketWizard, this will be the product for you.
What's in the box:
- 1x Cactus V5 Transceiver
- 1x Trigger Stand - approx 3cm high
- 1x 3.5mm Plug Cable
- 1x 6.35mm Plug Adapter
- 1x PC Sync Cable

- Get your camera to talk to your flash - Cactus Wireless Trigger V5 Single Review by Susan (Staff)
Price Value Quality Ease of Use
Such a great trigger solution the Cactus V5. So easy to use.
When you don't want to get bogged down with technical jargon and having to read manuals, Google how to's, FORGET all that!! It really is EASY TO USE :)
* You will need 2x V5's.
* Put both of the on the same channel (example Channel 1)
* Set 1 V5 to Transmit, put it on the Hotshoe of your DSLR.
* Set the other V5 to Receive and attach it to your flash with the plug or the Hotshoe attachment.
* If the batteries are all good, you'll be shooting
Photographers have enough to deal with on a shoot, organising models, assistants, locations, sticky beaks, posing , directing.. the list goes on.
The V5 makes triggering a breeze, leaving you more time to deal with the rest.

Ease of Use Price Value Quality
A simply easy way to create off camera flash without a messy cord etc. I have used these Cactus V5's on location with a speedlight (one on the hot shoe of camera, the other connects under flash) and also in studio plugged into the studio lights. They are not expensive and I have had no problem with them.
