Is my flash compatible with Cactus V5?

To check whether your dedicated flash units are compatible with Cactus V5, try attaching them to a camera of other brand in manual mode (e.g. attaching a Nikon TTL flash to a Canon DSLR camera). If the flash can be triggered, it will work with Cactus V5.


  • Hi, will the v5 trigger work with Yongnuo yn-560 III flash?

    The YN560-III can be triggered by the V5 like almost any other manual flash, if you put it on a V5 receiver.

    A V5 transmitter cannot make use of the YN560-III's built-in trigger directly, if that is your question. You'd need to use one of the compatible Yongnuo triggers (not all of them are) for that.
  • Yes as Class A said the YN560-III works on the V5 as it is a manual flash.

    FYI, many other TTL flash would work too but you just have to switch the mode to M (manual) - only using centre hot shoe pin for flash triggering.

    TTL or HSS not working on Cactus V6 II and V6 IIs? Be sure to check hot shoe connectivity by doing the <CAMERA INFO> check.
