Cactus Laser Trigger LV5

Cactus Laser Trigger LV5

Cactus LV5 is a laser trigger that allows you to do high speed

photography and wildlife camera traps. Whether you are interested in

capturing beautiful water droplets, facial expressions of athletes at

the finish line from multiple angles, or wildlife movements caught in

the act, the LV5 Laser Trigger can create unforgettable images with


Laser and Radio Trigger

With over a year of research and development, Cactus created a device

that is unique in the market: it combined laser and radio frequency

technology in one compact package. Aside from a light stand, tripod and a

shutter release cable for your camera, the LV5 is all you need to

capture that specific spectacle. Weighting at just over 300 grams and

requiring only four (4) AAA batteries to power both the LV5 Emitter and

Sensor, it is possibly the most versatile laser trigger to date.

Cactus V5, V6 and RF60 Compatible

The LV5 is a Class 1 laser device that triggers your camera’s shutter

either by direct wired connection or wirelessly via the embedded Cactus

RF module. Since the LV5 runs on the same channels as the V5, V6, V6 II,

V6 IIs, RF60 and RF60X, it can also trigger flash units with V5 and V6

series transceivers or directly to an RF60 series flash, which is a very

convenient way for high-speed photography.

Trap & Escape

Trap Mode and Escape Mode are the two triggering modes of the LV5. Just

like their names, Trap Mode captures an image when the laser is broken

by an object. Whilst in Escape Mode it happens when the object leaves

the laser and signal is detected by the Sensor. The camera can take a

single shot or multiple shots as desired.

Delay & Freeze Timers

What makes the LV5 unique and desirable is the ability to customize

Delay and Freeze periods. This gives precise control over the exact time

the camera releases the shutter after detecting an event. There are 15

selectable time delays. The Delay period can be set from 1ms to 400ms

while the Freeze period is from 20ms to 4 seconds.

Main features of the LV5:

  • Duo Mode Triggering (DMT). Cactus LV5 can be triggered

    by: (1) blocking the transmission between the laser Emitter and Sensor;

    or (2) removing the object between the laser Emitter and Sensor;

  • Works wirelessly with Cactus V5 and subsequent

    V5-compatible models. Cactus LV5 combines laser and radio frequency (RF)

    technology in a single device. With a built-in Cactus V5 transceiver

    module in the Sensor, LV5 allows you to take instant camera photos with

    unlimited number of portable flashes, wirelessly!

  • Long working distance. The working distance between the laser Emitter and the Sensor is up to 150 meters.
  • Works under sunlight. The LV5 not only works under ambient light, its intelligent design also allows it to work under sunlight.
  • Supports single and continuous shots. Supports bulb shot. The LV5 offers endless possibilities for your creative works.
  • Shutter Delay and Freeze: Shutter delay and post- shutter freeze period adjustable in 15 divisions.

It doesn’t matter if you are a wildlife photographer,

an amateur, or a professional who shoots in the studio, the LV5 is your

best companion when you need that decisive push on the shutter release.

It captures that instinctive action or freezes the split-second of

amusement. Get yours today and liberate your ideas!

Like Cactus V5, each Cactus LV5 unit is manufactured using RoHS compliant electronic components and parts.
