The Cactus V6 is the world's first non-TTL wireless trigger that works on any camera with a standard hot-shoe or PC sync port to remotely control the power output of Canon, Nikon and Pentax’s system flashes – all at the same time. The nifty radio trigger can adjust power levels in 0.1EV increments - even if your flash does not offer that option -, and offers a well-thought user interface that allows easyt multi-group power output control for up to four groups of flashguns. "We have profiled more than 30 popular flash models across a wide range of brands so that the V6 can precisely control their output levels," the company says. "With this unique feature, photographers can remotely control the flash power of various flash models, even of different brands." The V6 can directly control a Cactus RF60 set to Slave mode using RF60’s built-in radio transceiver. Besides controlling power remotely in single and multiple groups, the V6 can also adjust the zoom level of the RF60 easily by pressing the adjustment wheel and swap control between power and zoom. The Cactus V6 transceiver is available for $59.95.
