The Cactus V5 Shutter Cable for Nikon D7000, D5100, D3100 & D90 Cameras will transform your Cactus V5 Wireless Flash Transceiver into a wireless shutter release device. A shutter release cable is an ideal device to prevent camera shake when you press the shutter release button. It is a must for night photography or taking photos in B-mode.
Simply connect the coiled shutter cable from your camera's remote control terminal to the V5 transceiver X-Sync Port and you can wirelessly control the shutter of your camera. This operation will not interfere with your wireless flash setup using another set of V5 transceivers set on different channels. So you may run both shutter release and wireless flash systems in parallel.

Its a cable - I don't understand why people are giving it a poor rating, as it works exactly as advertised. As with any cable, don't swing from it, go to a playground for that.
Cables work fine but are lightweight construction and tend to fail over time.
Product shipped from Adorama had a manufacturing defect and only worked intermittently. Dealing with Adorama about the problem was easy and they quickly resolved the issue. I was very delighted with the customer support Adorama provided. I now have a working solution. Note: the actual product connectors are different from those shown in the Adorama product photo.
