The beauty of the Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V5 Duo system is its compatibility with a broad range of flashes and speedlights. Ideal for photographers who shoot across multiple brands or forward-thinking photographers who just want compatibility in the future, the V5 Duo supports most flash units from Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Nissin, Metz, Sigma, Yongnuo, Godox and more.
Impressive 100m Range
The Cactus V5 will trigger your flash or camera wirelessly from distances up to 100 metres! Equipping you with a vast amount of creative possibility, the V5 features 16 channels, a maximum sync speed of 1/1000s, subject to your flash and camera capability.
Wireless 2.4GHz Transmission
Operating at the 2.4GHz range ensures confidence inspiring flash triggering, minimising interference to deliver a significant improvement in reliability and a reduction in no-fire scenarios.
Convenient Multi-Channel Triggering
Multi-Channel Triggering is a professional grade improvement from the Cactus V4. It allows you to simultaneously trigger up to four sets of light sources, all controlled via one transceiver and camera. Setting the transceiver attached to the camera to Channel 1 will automatically send signals across all channels, eliminating the need to manually change channels for shots that require all lights in your setup to be triggered.
Dual Hot Shoe Design
Conveniently powered by two AAA batteries, each unit features dual hot-shoe design, allowing you to trigger both and on-camera and an off-camera flash for maximum creative versatility.
PC Sync Cable Included
Use the included PC Sync cable to remotely trigger the camera’s shutter via a button on the transceiver unit. Great for shooting from inconvenient or dangerous locations, the remote ensures you remain out of harms way while your camera does all the work.
The Cactus V5 Wireless Transceiver includes a 3.5mm cable and a 6.25mm plug adapter, making it compatible with most portable flash and studio strobe with trigger voltage up to 300V.

Cactus V5 does not work with V4, V2s or V2;
Cactus V5 does not transmit TTL information;
Cactus V5 does not work with Canon ELAN 7E, 10D, 300D (Digital Rebel / Kiss Digital);
Some dedicated flashes (e.g. Nissin Di-622 and Di-466 (Canon and Nikon dedicated versions), Sunpak PZ42x and PZ30, Sigma EF-530/500 DG ST for Canon, etc.) are triggered via system-specific pins instead of the central contact of the hot shoe. Cactus V5 does not work with these flash models. To check whether your dedicated flash units are compatible with Cactus V5, try attaching them to a camera of other brand (e.g. attaching a Nikon TTL flash to a Canon DSLR camera). If the flash can be triggered, it will work with Cactus V5.
