The Wireless Flash RF60 is a portable flash that has a built-in wireless transmitter and transceiver. A transceiver is a trigger-and-receiver-combined device. The RF60 is designed for use in a multiple-flash setup and designed with professional photographers in mind; offering an intuitive flash photography experience, whether it's a wedding or a commerical shoot. RF60 users will not only find adjustments quick and easy, but the LCD also displays all the necessary information.
When using the RF60 on the camera hot shoe, you can wirelessly control other off-camera RF60s without the need for a flash trigger.
Alternatively, using the Cactus V6 Wireless Flash Transceiver, the RF60 can be used wirelessly without the need to attach an external receiver to the flash.
When using with the Cactus V6 Wireless Flash Transceiver, both the power output and zoom level of the RF60 can be adjusted remotely by the V6.
Built-in wireless commander and receiver
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 RF6 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 Wireless Flash Transceiver
Flash power output on RF60 Slave units can be controlled by an RF60 Master as well as Cactus V6 Flash Transceiver.
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.
HSS Sympathy mode
The HSS Sympathy mode of the RF60 is designed to support flash photography at shutter speeds beyond a camera's maximum sync speed. With the help of a TTL flash mounted on camera, RF60 fire flashes with an extended duration in order to produce even frame illumination at shutter speeds as high as 1/8000 second.
