May 3, 2013 12:00 pm HKT No comments

Using the Cactus Laser Trigger LV5 Escape Mode in an airsoft gun shooting range.

The LV5 set in Escape mode, the frequency was set to 1KHZ and in Single Shot. No delay or freeze timers for this shot have been used. Since the LV5 has been set in Escape Mode, as soon as the cookie leaves the laser beam, it will trigger the flash instantaneously. Thus capturing the exact moment when the cookie bursts.

Strobist information: Snooted Cactus KF36 triggered wirelessly with Cactus V5, Canon 60D bulb at 1s, ISO100, F/18.
