i need a cable that connects my 50D (n3 port) to the cactus v5 (X-Sync port) for wireless shutter release. Anyone know which cable that is? and anyone use this for bulb photo? I know there are many cheap remote shutter release for this purpose but am burning with curiosity over my new toy!

Many thanks!

I guess it is this one. This is what came back when I typed your question into Google.

Can you trigger remote flashes and the shutter(s) all at once from a single v5 transmitter? Will it sync the shutter and flash properly?

No.

The flash will go off long before the camera is ready. You need another V5 to be triggered by the camera, when the camera is ready.

So for a single off-camera flash, I'd need 4 triggers total: 1 transmitter in my hand, 1 receiver on the N3 jack, 1 transmitter on the hotshoe, and 1 receiver on the flash. Correct?
