Do I really need 3 x v6 ?
I was tempted by the Cactus solution because of the power control features. However I'm trying a setup using an LV5 now.
I've tested the V6, one on the Nikon D810 and one with the SB-800, so far so good.
I've then introduced the LV5. I've connected the V6 on the D810 to the cable release port and set it to RX. When the LV5 triggers both the shutter and the flash fire. However they are not sync. Looking at the manual, which isn't completely clear (to me at least) but it seems to suggest that I need a third V6.
1 V6 attached to the Flash set to RX & channel 2.
1 V6 attached to the D810 hot shoe set to TX & channel 2
1 V6 attached to the D810 cable release port set to RX channel 1
LV5 set to channel 1
Is this really true ?
Please confirm the correct setup.
