Cactus redefines the portable flash system with the RF60. With built-in transmitter and receiver, it not only receives wireless signals but it also functions as a commander to control other RF60’s. The possibilities are endless!
Wireless Flash RF60
The Wireless Flash RF60 is a portable flash that has a built-in wireless transmitter + receiver – THREE things combined into one.
What are the advantages of using Wireless Flash RF60?
With a transceiver built-in, the RF60 can receive wireless triggering signal from a flash trigger and fire accordingly without having to attach an external receiver to the flash. When using with Cactus V6, both power output and zoom level of the RF60 can be adjusted remotely by Cactus V6.
Also because of the built-in transceiver, the RF60 itself, without anything attach to it, can function as a commander to control other RF60s. If you place an RF60 on a camera hot shoe, you can wirelessly control other off-camera RF60s without using ANY flash trigger at all.
Built-in Wireless Commander & Receiver
The Cactus RF60 is a 2.4GHz radio-based wireless portable flash with a built-in transceiver that runs on 16 channels. It operates in three modes, Local for on-camera operation, Master and Slave modes for off-camera. To act as a commander, set an RF60 to Master and it can trigger an unlimited number of RF60 set in Slave mode. The effective distance between the Master RF60 and Slave RF60 is up to 100m (328 feet).
Remote Control of Power & Zoom Levels
The power levels of the RF60 set in Slave mode can be adjusted from 1/128 to 1/1 full power in steps of 0.3EV. Zoom level can also be controlled from a wide 24mm zoom to 105mm. With remote power and zoom control, you can place the RF6 units in hard-to-reach places and control its power and zoom level wirelessly.
Group control of up to four groups with configurable Group Alias
In a typical lighting setup, the ability to adjust, activate and deactivate groups of lights is vital in creating the desired lighting effect. The RF60 can be configured into four distinct groups. Power output can be adjusted in individual group or in all groups at the same time for fast adjustments. To streamline the shooting experience, user can rename each group to: KEY, FILL, SPOT, RIM, HAIR, LEFT, RIGHT, BACK and FRONT instead of remembering the placement of flash groups A, B, C and D.
Optical Slave with delay feature
The RF60 has a built-in optical sensor. The optical sensor captures pre-flash signals that are being emitted earlier than the flash sync. By setting the pre-flash optical trigger and the delay timer, you can set the exact time for the flash to start firing. This allows the RF60 to do not only first-curtain and second-curtain sync (also referred as front and rear curtain), but can fire at any given point of the image.
High power up to Guide Number of 56 m
The RF60 has powerful guild number GN56. The Fresnel lens was specifically designed to give out the best possible light.
It is Compatible with Cactus V6 Wireless Flash Transceiver
Flash power output on RF60 Slave units can be controlled by an RF60 Master as well as Cactus V6 Flash Transceiver. Cactus V5 also supports basic flash triggering on the RF60 but does not support power output control on the RF60.
In Multi mode, a rapid series of flashes is fired to capture multiple images of a moving subject in a single frame. This feature is available in all three flash modes so its users can create the desired effects with both on and off camera flash.
HSS Sympathy mode
The HSS Sympathy mode of the RF60 is designed to support flash photography at shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time.
For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc.s beyond a camera’s maximum sync speed. With the help of a TTL flash mounted on camera, RF60 fire flashes with an extended duration in order to produce even frame illumination at shutter speeds as high as 1/8000 sec.
The RF60 is meant for use in a multiple flashes setup and designed with the needs from the need of professional photographers in mind.
Whether it’s a wedding or commercial shoot, timing is crucial. RF60 users will not only find adjustments quick and easy, the LCD also displays necessary information photographer needs to know. All in all, it offers an intuitive flash photography experience. So you, as the photographer, do not need to fiddle with the gear but instead enjoy the shooting experience.
