Cactus RF60, Wow, How Versatile!

Cactus RF60, Wow, How Versatile!

My RF60 arrived yesterday from HK, I paid normal delivery and the process took 5 days and we have just had a Bank Holiday, so I was very happy with the delivery service.

OK, despite only a few hours of playing, this flash is just so versatile. I can control power settings and zoom setting wirelessly with the Cactus V6 Trigger, which makes off camera flash use and set up a dream.

Putting the RF60 in slave mode and using a Metz AF 50 on the camera I can shoot above the flash sync speed of 180th, the flash fired at 1/1000 no problem. Linking a set of these together would open up so much potential of how flash could be used.

In Multi mode, I could also set the flash to create stroboscopic effects controlling the number of flashes and the HZ from 0, 1,2,3,4,5 etc.

The build quality of the RF60 is very good, I would say as good as or better than Metz.

The user manual is simple and easy to understand, as is operating the flash, Cactus have done a great job.

I am so impressed with the RF60 I am ordering another two today. If you are into flash, I can’t think of any other product as versatile.

There are a few in depth reviews online, but this one by class_A is well worth a look.
