Cactus v4 Wireless Flash Trigger
Cactus v4 Wireless Flash Trigger
So, I just got my new Cactus v4 Wireless Flash Trigger (which you can't see here, since I used it to take the shot). I thought I would post this, just so somebody else with the same flash would know that this trigger would work. My equipment: 1) Canon Rebel T1i (500D) 2) Sigma EF-530 DG Super Flash 3) Cactus v4 Wireless Flash Trigger It worked with little effort. The Cactus transmitter easily slid onto the hotshoe on the camera. My flash easily slid on the hotshoe mount of the Cactus receiver. It even came with batteries. The main thing I had to do, was set the flash to slave mode, so it displayed "C0 SL". I can't use it with TTL (Through the Lens) metering, but I knew that before I ordered it. It seemed to fire fairly reliably. But, I realize I may have been very lucky to be somewhere without much radio interference. We'll see how it goes out in the wild. I'm pretty confident radio signals will be better than the whole optical thing. A small issue, is I would like a fastener wheel on the bottom of the Cactus receiver, to better secure it to a light stand. I actually didn't need a wireless trigger for this shot, since I just bounced the light off the ceiling. I ordered from Gadget Infinity, who ship from Hong Kong, which took about 12 days, which was within their promised 15 days. I had considered buying a PocketWizard, but they're several times more expensive. Plus, I am told by PocketWizard support, that TTL doesn't work with my particular Sigma flash and any of their radio triggers. So, it doesn't offer that much of an advantage over Cactus (which doesn't do TTL for any flash). Of course, my cat wanted to "help" out with the shot. Photographer: Robert Thivierge

An example where the slave (Speedlite 580EX) unit's wireless sensor's view is blocked by a wall from the master (Speedlite 580EX II) unit. The slave still gave perfect flash illumination. Strobist info: The camera mounted master unit's flash is disabled and is located 3 metres horizontally down the hall from the right side doorway. The slave unit is placed 1.5 metres horizontally perpendicular from that doorway inside the room. It's flash head and blinking AF-assist beam is aimed out the doorway. The preflash from the master unit sets off the slave unit. This fully automatic wireless flash method uses ETTL-II autoflash technology controlling the output. Also, from this position, the camera's depth-of-field button was able to activate the out of view slave's modeling flash. The above technique will also work with the Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2. Note: The Speedlite on wireless slave mode is a high consumption device of power. At minimum, 2500 mAh rechargeable NiMH batteries are required for continuous operation of the selector dial and flash output.
