New brand-agnostic radio trigger with remote power control

I've just published my Cactus V6 review about a new radio trigger that allows remote manual power control for speedlights in a brand-agnostic manner.

With this trigger you can combine, for instance, a Nikon SB-24, Nikon SB910, Canon 540EZ, Metz 58 AF-2, and Pentax AF 360 FGZ all in one lighting setup while controlling the power levels from your camera.

I think it is really cool that this trigger gives old legacy TTL flashes a new lease of life. If you have one of these TTL flashes, chances are that you can trigger it and remote control its power even if your model is not supported out of the box. The V6 has a "learning" mode with which you can create a flash profile for your flash model. You can then use it in combination with other flashes in an "absolute mode" which makes your power level settings -- now no longer expressed in fractions but in "EV" -- independent of the maximum guide numbers of a flash.

The review goes into a lot more detail.

Happy to answer any questions if I happen to know the answers.
