Cactus RF60 is a portable flash with a built-in transceiver*.
It supports high-speed sync (HSS / FP) working as a Slave flash when triggered by a V6 II or V6 IIs (for Sony) and its power and zoom level can be remotely controlled by a V6, V6 II or V6 IIs. When using the RF60 as an on-camera flash it can also trigger other RF60s or flashes mounted on V6, working under camera’s x-sync speed.
*A transceiver is a trigger-and-receiver-combined device.
Did you recently switch to another camera system? Or do you shoot on more than one camera system in the studio? Cactus RF60 is the answer if you look for an off-camera flash – it can be used with literally any cameras in the market. You can swap this flash between your camera bodies and still retain remote power and zoom control.
You no longer need a TTL flash to support high-speed sync. The RF60 has the ability to sync with your camera above x-sync when it is triggered by the V6 II / V6 IIs. That makes the RF60 a HSS flash for Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax and Sony camera system.
Besides using the RF60 as a Master Flash to remotely adjust flash power output of other RF60s set to Slave mode, you may also use the Cactus V6II / V6 IIs to do that by swiping the adjustment dial. Instant adjustment of a single group and ratio power adjustment can be quickly made.
RF60’s zoom can be adjusted both directly on the flash, remotely from another RF60, or remotely from a Cactus V6, V6 II and V6 IIs.
When triggered by a Cactus V6 II / V6 IIs, the RF60 can support both high-speed sync modes, Normal HSS and Power Sync.
Supports shutter speed up to 1/8000s.
Boosts flash contribution above x-sync shutter speed, perfect for extreme conditions where Normal HSS is not powerful enough.
The built-in transceiver in the RF60 allows the flash to send wireless signal to or receive wireless signal from another RF60. This unique feature makes an RF60 capable of being a commander (set as Master) to control the power and zoom level of other RF60s (set as Slave).
Each RF60 can be configured into one of four distinct groups. Power and zoom level can be adjusted for individual groups or all the groups at the same time for fast adjustments. You can assign each RF60 to a different group and assign names so you won't forget where you last placed them.

By designing a user interface that is focused on ease of use, Cactus adds the “+” and “-” buttons on the RF60 to make navigation extremely fast and easy.
RF60’s flash head can be tilted 90 degree up, 15 degree down, with a 270 degree swivel.
The RF60 has a built-in wide angle diffuser which diffuses the light to an equivalent spread of 14mm.
Handy retractable bounce card is a convenient tool for indoor and outdoor flash application.
Set a delay time for creative lighting setups and trigger RF60 flash firing from 1 to 99 seconds, or 1 to 999ms.
The RF60 has a built-in optical sensor. The optical sensor captures pre-flash signals that are being emitted earlier than the flash sync and gives the RF60 an alternative trigger option.
