Gadget infinity cactus v2s antenna mod

Gadget infinity cactus v2s antenna mod

Well, as some of you might have noticed i've just bought myself some strobist equipment( i ordered the impact set for 2 and 2 vivitar 285HV's from bhphoto and cactus triggers from gadgetinfinity)

Well, i had a little "photoshoot" with my brother today and i discovered that the Cactus's was even more unreliable than i thought! the problem was that i used both flashes, and i had to take like 6-7 images to get an image where they both fired! So i thought i'd get strait to ghe mod.

I got a cat5 cable and a 2.4 ghz antenna, i removed the antenna itself from the 2.4ghz and was left with the plastic cover, and i fitted that to the cactus, then i soldered on a reasonable amount of wire, and cut of 1 inch peaces untill they were reliable an voila! I thought i should do a test.

I shot 100 shots at 1/100 with both flashes and NO missfires, i was very happy with it, i thought i'd test a 6,5 fps burst of 50 shots and believe it or not NO missfires now either! I works like a charm!
