Trigger PhotoFlex Strobe 650 - uses 1/4" phone jack

Is there a method to plug in some cable adapter that will plug in to a PhotoFlex Strobe 659 that has a 1/4" phone jack receiver and have it trigger the flash remotely - AND - if possible control the intensity output ?

Comments

  • You won't be able to control the strobe intensity, but if you connect the V6 receiver with the strobe with a respective cable then you will be able to trigger the strobe with a V6 remotely.
  • Is Cactus working on making the PhotoFlex Strobe 659 interfaced with the Cactus V6 so intensity can be controlled wirelessly remotely?
  • Strobes generally don't have an input that allows third-party control of the power output, so the answer is an almost certain no.

    No, we are not working on one.

    Thanks!

    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).
