05 Aug Cactus V6II Remote Trigger High Speed Sync with Fujifilm X-Pro 2 | Joe Ng

One of the cool things about Cactus is that they are constantly consulting photographers how to improve their flashes and remote triggers to make the photographer’s life easier. Most importantly, they listen and execute. Cactus has recently upgraded its V6 wireless transceiver system to allow flash sync speeds of up to 1/8000 sec. I have been waiting for the HSS (High Speed Sync) for my Fujifilm cameras for a long time. I’ve been using a pre-production Cactus V6II trigger since May. So I tested the Cactus RF60 flash with V6II trigger at one of my cycling races assignments couple weeks ago. As usual, it is not a technical review. I share with you how I set up the shoot, what works and what does not and feel free to browse the photos to see the result. I first picked one corner that I like the most from this course. I wanted to shoot it beyond the fence but stopped by the volunteers who secured the race track even I was one of the media photographers and weard the media vest. I could understand their concern. As a sports photographer, I do know the risks when covering different sports…..
