Cactus LV5 Reviews

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 about this item:

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?
JOSE F  Anything that has a flash shoe mount will do. I use a Universal Light Stand Mount to Shoe Adapter.
Naida O  Will this work with a Canon Rebel SL1?
SIERRA H  It should work with any Canon DSLR. You'll have to buy a separate cable to plug into your remote port to trigger the shutter though.
Alex V  Will this work on my Sony Alpha A99? Do I need any additional cables or anything else?
JUAN V  You will need a Shutter Release Cable that works with you camera make and model and to make things easy one or more of the cactus wireless flash transceivers V5
