Wireless Flash RF60

What is the Wireless Flash RF60?

The Wireless Flash RF60 is a portable flash that has a built-in wireless transmitter and a wireless receiver – THREE things combined into one. And that’s not all, it also supports high-speed sync / FP mode.*

What are the advantages of using Wireless Flash RF60?

  1. High-speed sync supportArguably the best choice for off-cameraflash as it is a HSS flash for Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax and Sony. When triggered by the Cactus V6 II or CactusV6 IIs, it will sync above camera’s x-sync speed up to 1/8,000s bjust installing the new firmware (version 200) released in July 2016.  With the RF60, you no longer need to match the camera and flash system for HSS
  2. No external flash receiver needed: With a transceiver built-in on the RF60, itcan receive wireless triggering signal from a flash trigger and fire accordingly without having to attach an external receiver to the flash.When using with Cactus V6, V6 II and V6 IIs, both power output and zoom levelof the RF60 can be adjusted remotely.
  3. RF60 can function as a flash commander: Also because of the built-in transceiver, the RF60 itself, without anything attach to it, can function as a commander to control other RF60s. If you place an RF60 on a camera hot shoe,you can wirelessly control other off-camera RF60s without using ANY flash trigger at all.

Normal HSS and Power Sync

RF60 (runs on firmware 200 or above) supports High-speed sync (HSS) / Focal Plane (FP) mode, typically found on a TTL flash, when triggered by a Cactus V6 II / V6 IIs. Controlled from the V6 II / V6 IIs transmitter, user can select between Normal HSS, the typical longer pulsing flash with lower power outputs; or Power Sync, which gives you a boost in flash power.

Built-in wireless commander and slave

The Cactus RF60 is a 2.4GHz radio-based wireless portable flash with a built-in transceiver that runs on 16 channels. It operates in three modes, Local for on-camera operation, Master and Slave modes for off-camera. To act as a commander, set an RF60 to Master and it can trigger an unlimited number of RF60 set in Slave mode. The effective distance between the Master RF60 and Slave RF60 is up to 100m (328 feet).

Remote control of power and zoom levels

The power levels of the RF60 set in Slave mode can be adjusted from 1/128 to 1/1 full power in steps of 0.3EV. Zoom level can also be controlled from a wide 24mm zoom to 105mm. With remote power and zoom control, you can place the RF60 units in hard-to-reach places and control its power and zoom level wirelessly.

Group control of up to four groups with configurable Group Alias

In a typical lighting setup, the ability to adjust, activate and deactivate groups of lights is vital in creating the desired lighting effect. The RF60 can be configured into four distinct groups. Power output can be adjusted in individual group or in all groups at the same time for fast adjustments. To streamline the shooting experience, user can rename each group to: KEY, FILL, SPOT, RIM, HAIR, LEFT, RIGHT, BACK and FRONT instead of remembering the placement of flash groups A, B, C and D.

Optical Slave with delay feature

The RF60 has a built-in optical sensor. The optical sensor captures pre-flash signals that are being emitted earlier than the flash sync. By setting the pre-flash optical trigger and the delay timer, you can set the exact time for the flash to start firing. This allows the RF60 to do not only first-curtain and second-curtain sync (also referred as front and rear curtain), but can fire at any given point of the image.

High power up to Guide Number of 56 meters

The RF60 has powerful guild number GN56. The Fresnel lens was specifically designed to give out the best possible light.

Compatible with Cactus V6 / V6 II / V6 IIs Wireless Flash Transceiver

Flash power and zoom level on RF60 Slave units can be controlled by an RF60 Master as well as Cactus V6, V6 II, and V6 IIs Flash Transceiver. Cactus V5 also supports basic flash triggering on the RF60 but does not support power and zoom level control on the RF60.

Multi-flash feature

In Multi mode, a rapid series of flashes is fired to capture multiple images of a moving subject in a single frame. This feature is available in all three flash modes so its users can create the desired effects with both on and off camera flash.

An award-winning choice for off-camera flash

The RF60 is meant for use in a multiple flashes setup and designed with the needs of professional photographers in mind. It won the 2016 Digital Camera Grand Prix (DGP) Awards Gold Prize in the category of camera related accessories.

Whether it’s a wedding or commercial shoot, timing is crucial. RF60 users will not only find adjustments quick and easy, the LCD also displays necessary information photographer needs to know. All in all, it offers an intuitive flash photography experience. So you, as the photographer, do not need to fiddle with the gear but instead focus on your photography.

* High-speed sync is supported when RF60 is triggered by a Cactus V6 II or V6 IIs on a compatible camera.
