Cactus RQ250 TTL Wireless Monolight for Fujifilm X on Kickstarter


Cactus RQ250

Cactus just launched the Cactus RQ250, a palm-sized, 250Ws, Li-ion battery-powered TTL wireless monolight on kickstarter here.

“Compact, wireless, with TTL and HSS support for 8 camera brands including Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Sigma and Sony, this powerful light can change instantly from a round head diffusion disc flash to a bare-bulb flash.

The Cactus RQ250 is designed with location shooting in mind. Equipped with a magnetic flash head and bayonet mount, it makes mounting light modifiers as quick as a snap.”

What do you get in a Cactus RQ250 apart from the 250Ws power? Here is the list:

  1. Made-in-Japan capacitors to guarantee safety and reliability under intensive use
  2. 1.1s full power recycling time
  3. Detachable uni-body reflector head with frosted diffusion disc. No add-on reflector dome is needed, save space in your bag and allows you to shoot right away.
  4. Built-in magnetic system for clip-on modifier. No need to add additional magnetic adapter.
  5. 20W built-in modelling light and AF assist. No need to add external bracket.
  6. Circular light with nearly zero undesirable hot spot, which speedlight head or something similar cannot do.
  7. Extra low output of 1/512
  8. Cooling fan and thermal sensors to guarantee continuous shooting without overheat. No other light with similar size has anything similar.
  9. Aluminum reflector head and built-in bayonet mount which design and material used are the same as camera lens – top quality, quick, robust and durable.
  10. Colour mode to save your time in post-production.
