Cactus V5 set with Canon 580exii and Yunguno 560ii.. The Yung won't fire.
Nov 11, 2012

Hello all,

I recently tried to buy a Cactus V5 duo set and my mega online store was sold out so I bought 2 single Cactus V5 figuring they would all work with each other put on the same channel and set properly RX and TX.

It is annoying you can't use them as a camera trigger unless you get a special cable. So I got a special cable for my 60D to try this out.

Tx in my hand and Rx on the camera it fired. So I knew things were working.

Put the camera in Tx and stuck the Rx V5 under my new Yunguno 560ii and it wouldn't fire in any mode, M S1 S2 or Multi.

I put the V5 under my Canon 580EXii and it fired, and I can set the Yunguno in S1 and the Exii in Master and the Cactus V5 camera will fire both.

Any idea why the Cactus V5 didn't work with the Yunguno?
