We have a Panasonic Lumix G5 and are looking to buy two flashes to use for product photography. W have never used or needed this sort of setup before so I am unfamiliar with any of it. I am assuming I need a trigger like the Cactus which will trigger the two flashes simultaneously. None of the product information gives a beginner any useful information in this space. They assume you know what you are talking about.
So essentially we will be manually measuring the light and placing the two flashes on stands around the product. The trigger will be on the camera. I am expecting the two wirelessly connected flashes to fire when the shutter is pressed. We haven't bought the flashes yet but will purchase something compatible with the Cactus if it will fulfil our needs.
So will the Cactus;
a) work on the Panasonic Lumix G5 (if so any limitations we should be aware of)
b) What flashes would you recommend (We are thinking of the Yongnuo because we have been advised they are good value for the performance) We have a limited budget £50 to £80 per flash?
c) What model Cactus is the best for our needs?
Thanks in advance.
