Simply sit the transmitter on your camera's hotshoe. You then either sit your speedlight flash on the hotshoe on the receiver or connect your studio flash to the receiver with the included cables. No extra adapters required.

The receiver can be mounted via the hotshoe built into the bottom or screwed onto a tripod or flash stand via the standard 1/4 inch socket.

To mount to one of the Image Melbourne umbrella brackets simply unscrew the hotshoe mount from the brolly bracket and screw the V4 directly onto the exposed thread. This setup is very solid.

Kit contents:
  • One V4 transmitter
  • One V4 receiver
  • Three connection cables
  • One set of batteries
  • Instruction manual
  • "When light Dances" bonus album

Cactus V4 offers many improved features from the V2 / V2s version:

1) New antenna design that increases the reliability and effective range to 30 meters.
2) New power source for receiver – AAA batteries.
3) 16 selectable channels and advanced anti-interference feature.
4) Compatible with low trigger voltage portable flashes, high trigger voltage portable flashes and studio strobes.
5) Trigger set includes three (3) connection cables while receiver only package includes one (1).
6) Setup details are also presented for photographer’s reference.
7) A complimentary copy of the photo album “When Light Dances” is included in the package. Not only wonderful pictures taken by photographers who use Cactus as their companion are shown
8) Outdoor range up to 30 meters

12-month warranty

If you run multiple flashes you will need more V4 receivers (sold separately) - V4s are NOT compatible with any other receiver due to the new anti-interference design

Items such as the flash, stand and umbrella bracket are NOT included.

* Canon 5D Mark I users Cactus has released a new version of the V4 which has a fix for 5D I's sensitivity to RF interference.
ALL 5D cameras : I II & III now work perfectly with V4s
Nikon SB400 will not work with V4s or any wireless trigger as they do not fire via the centre contact

Sony / Minolta users will need to use the cable connections or hotshoe adapters (available separately) as their hotshoes are a different shape

Some dedicated flashes (e.g. Nissin Di-622 and Di-466, Sunpak PZ42x and PZ30, Sigma EF-530/500 DG ST for Canon, etc.) are triggered via system-specific pins instead of the central contact of the hot shoe. Cactus V4 does not work with these flash models. To check whether your dedicated flash units are compatible with Cactus V4, try attaching them to a camera of other brand (e.g. attaching a Nikon TTL flash to a Canon DSLR camera). If the flash can be triggered, it will work with Cactus V4.
