Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V6 Single
Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
As I read previously, the units seem like a great deal... if they work and last. I'm a bit worried about craftsmanship given my experience.
#1 I do agree with other reviewers that the door is flimsy and cheap. Needs a simple design fix to keep it shut - it doesn't sit flush with unit when new, so I expect this will only get worse.
#2 Why such a strange flash latch - there are simpler designs that are just as inexpensive that click into place. This unit you can tighten and overtighten, which is a concern.
#3 Buttons are super friendly and I like the multiple connection options - hotshoe and threaded light stand.
I will try a replacement and update folks. At this point I cannot review connection/function since I only have one unit.
Build quality is not the best but for the price it's decent. The functions are amazing and revolutionary. I recently switched to nikon from canon, and had some left over canon flashes that nobody wanted to buy, and can now integrate them into my nikon system with these! Saved me money on replacing those two flashes.
First and foremost- I had problems upon setting these up initially on my Nikon D750 cameras. The pass through ttl was not working, and was locking up my on camera flash. I went to the cactus website and read through their forums and I was not the only one with this problem.
Apparently the D750 hot shoe is deeper than other models, and so if you slide these triggers in all the way, the prongs do not align properly. To fix this, you must slide the trigger out a tiny bit before locking it down. Once I did that, pass through TTL worked like it was supposed to. I will either make a tiny spacer or hope that cactus releases a premade one to remedy this problem. Then, when pass through ettl (on camera) was enabled, my remote flashes would not fire. I was stumped for about an hour, and then everything started working properly. I have no idea what happened, but I'm going to assume that the hot shoe prongs on camera were still not properly aligned all the way. Now everything is working as it should and they are awesome.
Benefits of these triggers vs others: pass through ttl on camera (though other triggers do this, such as yn622c's, and my buggy as hell pixel king pro's). Change manual powers on remote flashes quickly and easily. The interface is so fast and easy to use, on my pixel king pro's you have to press a million buttons to change flash powers, and on these you simply spin a wheel. If you want to change all the flashes powers at once, you just spin the wheel on the back. If you want to change a single group power, you hold the group you want to change and then spin the wheel. That simple. Having four groups vs three is also very useful, since most rooms have four corners, or, it simply just gives you an extra independent flash.
Another really awesome feature is that these can force lower powers than your flashes can normally be set to. For example my 430ex ii's only go down to 1/64 power normally, but these triggers can force them to 1/128 and even 1/256 in 'lo power' mode. This is extremely useful to me because often at weddings, especially for exit photos or outdoor shots, where I'm at high ISO and wide apertures, even 1/64 power is too bright, and this gives me two stops lower to work with.
These triggers are awesome. I will however, be keeping my pixel king pro's as well, for when I need to use HSS, off camera ttl, or hypersync with strobes. Note: the pixel king pro's are extremely unreliable and buggy with the D750. I'm hoping they update the firmware. That was actually my main reason in getting this cactus system.
But it makes remote control a breeze, and for non moving objects I feel more reliable than wireless TTL.
So far it is working OK with my Nikon SB-700's (although it locks it, but it can be unlocked with menu long press, and beeps don't work while on a cactus as receiver to know when the flash is ready to fire again :(...). Also works ok with Yongnuo 568EX-II on both Fujifilm X-T1 and on a Nikon D600 which I tested them.
As expected, it didn't work on a Yongnuo 568EX nor on an old Yongnuo 467-II speedlight, only can be used as a trigger without remote control (so instead these flashes I use them as optical slaves if need the extra flashes, since there isn't much sense to "waste" a cactus to work as a simple trigger with no remote power control).
The built quality is not the best and solid I would wished, but it's good enough.
Nice it has a incorporated on the body a tripod/light stand mount.
There are a lot of button shortcuts so I advice to have a quick read of the manual (no long).
In summary an amazing product for the prize... but check your flashes if they are supported not to be disappointed.
