LV5 problems with samsung camera

Hello!I have a problems with samsung nx 1000 camera and lv5 laser trigger. As a remote i use yongnuo 603 connected via 3,5 jack of lv5 to pc sync of yn 603 and on camera i use 603 connected via 2,5 jack to micro usb of the camera port.
At first, i thoght that 603 is the veak link ,but when i used it as a remote it works.I think that signal from lv5 doesn't transfer wirelessly to camera.What do  i need to do?

    The RF603 cannot be used as an off-camera trigger unless it is modified, as it does not switch to TX mode unless it senses a camera.

    When you test fire the RF603 connected to the LV5 in your setup, the camera will not take a photo.

    An easy solution for your problem would be to get one Cactus V5 and connect it to the camera with a shutter release cable. The LV5 can trigger a V5 wirelessly.
  • Ok! What cable do i need to connect the v5 to camera ? V5 has a 3.5 jack and camera has micro usb .And one last question how i can trigger strobes  using 603 and v5 mounted on a hot-shoe of the camera
  • @gera  Sorry at the moment we don't have such a cable, however you may find them from other manufactueres. We will also try to source the right cable in the meantime.

    LV5 > V5 (RX) > shutter cable > camera shutter jack
    Camera hot shoe > 603 Transmitter > 603 Receiver > flash mounted on hot shoe / sync port

    Hope this helps!

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "v.103".

    For the time being, Cactus V6 (MK1) running on firmware version 2.1.001 can be triggered by a V6 II (MK2) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) and not by X-TTL firmware versions: PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet. 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A01 and A02 currently ONLY works with PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  Other "A" version of X-TTL firmware will be released soon. For both Multi-brand HSS and X-TTL firmware versions (FUJ, SIG, SON), install firmware version 103 / 205 on your RF60X / RF60.

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware version 205 or later!

    Metz M400 (for Fujifilm) is now supported on the Cactus V6 II (HSS and TTL).
