Full manual adjustable flash is always the best companion or photographers, professional or amateur. That's why Vivitar 285HV has always been on top of the sales list. We understand how important it is to have a similar flash that has exactly the same functions as 285HV after its production ceased. Here comes the first flash manufactured by Cactus – KF36.
Its vari-power of 1/2, 1/4 and 1/16 allows you to easily adjust the light intensity at your wish. Guide number is up to 120-ISO 100ft/ 36-DIN 21m. It has four auto f-stop settings and powerful automatic exposure range up to 70 feet.
Apart from these highlighted features, there are many more:
Automatic Operation - Vari Sensor Module
This Cactus KF36 Electronic Flash has a Vari Sensor Module that measures the light reflected from the subject, as well as other reflective surfaces near the subject. This information is interpreted by sensor’s computer which programs the flash to automatically provide just the right among of light required for correct exposure. You don’t have to change the f-stop on your camera lens when you move closer to a subject or father away as long as your subject is within the automatic operating range of the flash for that f-stop.
The Calculator Dial, though not electronically connected to the flash, is a convenient built-in-guide for determining flash exposures. After familiarizing yourself with the meaning of numbers and colours on it, you will find the dial a very versatile tool.
Sufficient Light Indicator
The Sufficient Light Indicator will let you know whether the light output is sufficient for a proper exposure before you take a picture. It is particularly useful in bounce lighting which involves complex exposure calculations.
Zoom and Bounce
The Zoom/Bounce Flash Head allows you to coordinate the flash field coverage with the field coverage of your camera lens. You can tilt the flash head at 0°, 45°, 60°, 75° or 90°.
This energy-saving thyristor circuit of the flash saves excess energy for proper exposure which enables very fast recycling time.
A tailor made nylon carrying case comes with this new model too!
Note on compatibility with Cactus Wireless Trigger: Cactus KF36 is compatible with Cactus V2s wireless flash trigger and receivers, as well as the new Cactus V4.
