jfdb59: Would it be possible to mount a V5 on the camera in RX to release the
shutter remotely, but ALSO run another in RX on the flash. The one in your
hand would actually be the triggering unit for both the shutter release and
the master flash. Or would this not be sync'd tight enough to actually
work? I haven't tried this yet. Would be nice to not have to have one on
the hotshoe and another one dangling around.
MikeLawrencePhoto: The half-press is pretty cool..and they have good range for the price,
but.. Instead of firing the transmitter by pressing the button with your
hand, is it possible to do so with the shutter from a second camera? Have
it so the camera in your hands fires a remote camera at another angle?
This is really important for sports and I'm disappointed that I think my
pair of V5's won't do it. Any suggestions?
Gadget Infinity: @scottidee, Cactus V5 was re-engineered to provide reliable and robust
flash triggering for SLR and DSLR, Canon and Nikon cameras included. It has
been tested by many of our reviewers to be reliable and so far, none of our
reviewers have had any misfires when using V5 in an environment within the
listed specifications. A few of these reviews have been provided below: bit

Gadget Infinity: Sorry it doesn't.
LeeKeybutts: I'm sure you guys realize this, but it's COMPLETE BULLcrap to sell the
shutter release cable separately. What the hell? Everyone, realize that in
order to use your V5 as a shutter release, you have to drop another $15 on
an additional cable that is for no apparent reason NOT INCLUDED with the
triggers. What's the manufacturing cost, like $.53??? C'mon guys. I'm going
to look for an adapter at Radio Shack to use with the supplied cable. Will
post again if it works.
Gia Hillenbrand: does it have a cord for mini-usb also?
LeeKeybutts: Confirmed. Just buy a 3.5mm to 2.5mm audio adapter and you can use the
supplied cable with a Canon 60D. Costs $5.
Rainer Mueller: Please realize that one must have TWO Cactus V5's to pull off this trick.
Brandon Luckain: That is so sick.
