  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    The K-3 just won the EISA "Advanced DSLR Camera award 2014-2015":

  • @BarnabyJones:

    BTW, you had hot-shoe connectivity issues a while ago (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3573353#forum-post-52497662). How do you know that although the replacement flash works...

  • @ Maxfield_photo: The V6 has a multi-brand hot-shoe that works for many more systems than Canon, Nikon, and Pentax.

    That's how it can support TTL pass-through for Panasonic, Olympus, and Fuji as...

  • What did they reply?

    I have my set and it works perfectly (with Pentax).

    If they advertise TTL pass-through for the Olympus system then they have tested it. Perhaps a bug has been introduced...

  • I only have only Pentax dedicated equipment so I can't comment on your problem, but I'm sure if you contact Cactus, e.g., through their community forum, they will either help you out with a tip or...

  • The V6 does not support P-TTL HSS directly, but if you connect an HSS-capable flash to your 645D then you can use its main flash or pre-flash as an optical trigger signal for the V6.

    I described...

  • $59.95 from Adorama (free shipping). That's for US folk only, though.

    @Scottelly: If you blur the image after it has been recorded then you are capturing moiré and get blurred moiré in the final result.

    In order to avoid moiré, it is necessary to prevent a 100%...

  • The Canon 550EX is supported in that you can create a flash profile for it yourself.

    Someone reported that he was able to profile his Canon 550EX. Follow the link for the 550 EX...

  • How did you test TTL pass-through? It is only supposed to work for one flash sitting on top of a V6 that is mounted to the camera.

    Flash profiling works for all flashes made for Canon, Nikon, and...

  • The V6 will fire the YN560-III but not remote control their power levels.

    You'd have to use the YN560-TX for the latter.

  • The V6 will fire the YN560-III (with one receiver per flash) but not remote control their power levels. The Cactus and Yongnuo radio modules do not talk to each other.

    You'd have to use the...

    Offering a D800E next to a D800 is fine.

    The attempt to restrict photographers to buying an incomplete camera -- lacking a necessary part; the Bayer AA filter -- should be commented on more...

  • A number of user reports is already available. For instance, one suitable for Pentax users .
  • Thanks for the kind feedback. Yes, there aren't any limitations to "mixing and matching" as long as the individual components are supported. Yes, it is. The Nikon SB600 is supported through a prede ...
  • I've just made my Cactus V6 review available. I hope people will find it useful. The V6 is the perfect on-camera trigger for the RF60.
