Cactus LV5 Reviews

Reviewed by 2 customers


Great with some hitch


from canada  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The Cactus LV% does what it's suppose to do.... and it works much better is you trigger the flash not the cam.... Only one thing... all the buttons are way to small and to hard to reach or activate ... excepted the power button witch is fine


A Very Interesting Device


from Statesville, NC  -  Photo Enthusiast

Freeze photography; occasionally; easy to use; haven't found anything that I don't like about the product.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

FEDERICO A  will it work for nikon cameras and flashes?
TIM H  I really don't see why it wouldn't. But that would be if the cactus V5 is compatible with your Nikon you use it to transmit between your camera and the lasers.
Dave T  I read a review that says this does not include stands (how crazy is that). What kind of stands can be used and where do you get them? Why are the not shown on Adorama for this item under the "Accessories" tab?
JOHN K  I would check Ebay and order low price light stands from China.
Alex V  Will this work on my Sony Alpha A99? Do I need any additional cables or anything else?
ERIC M  Yes. It comes with a PC sync cable that allows you to plug it into your camera. I use it with radio transmitters (pocket wizard). Either method allows you to use this on most cameras.
