The Cactus LV5 Laser Trigger utilizes an emitter and sensor that can be set up to trigger a camera or flash unit upon changes in the beam's signal. The sensor features an embedded 2.4 GHz Cactus V5 radio module that has 16 channels and a range of up to 100 m as well as a standard 3.5mm shutter release port for making a physical connection to certain cameras. Also, the emitter and sensor can work with a large 150 m distance between them for more elaborate setups.

The LV5 works either with Cactus V5 compatible transceivers or modules or by connecting directly to a compatible camera or flash unit with the included 3.5mm cord. It features Duo Mode Triggering for providing the option of triggering when either the transmission is blocked or when an object is removed from between the sensor and emitter. The device also supports flash sync speeds up to 1/1000 second and offers a variety of shutter delay and freeze settings for customizing your setup.

You can set the trigger to single, continuous, and bulb shot modes in coordination with your camera and each device runs on either 2 or 4 AAA batteries.
