Cactus launched their 250Ws monolight for location lighting with a Kickstarter campaign.

Bit of a surprise move, AFAIC, but Cactus seem to be in good company with Peak Design and MagMod who also used Kickstarter to launch a product despite being established companies already.

In particular Pentaxians who already own a V6 or V6II trigger might be interested in this Li-Ion-powered strobe that should be able to replace 3.5 x regular speedlights with a very small form factor.

It looks interesting, I'm just starting my adventure into flash photography so will hold off a while and watch out for reviews, could be something to invest in in the future.

Yeah, it's pricier than I thought it would be but there is a lot to like regarding the performance. Compared to Priolite and Phottix location lighting kits (which are also compatible with Pentax cameras) the price looks more than alright, but Godox offers their AD400 for a similar amount. Alas, unless Godox fulfils their promise of a Pentax-compatible trigger, it is not really an option for us.

I'm already using Cactus V6 Transceivers so this would make more sense for me to go with.
