The first images have appeared of Cactus Image’s upcoming wireless flash trigger. The photographs show the V6 being tested in the Swiss Alps and were posted on the company’s Facebook page.

No details have been provided about the possible features or specifications of the new unit, which was being used by Antonio Lao, an employee of Harvest One, Cactus’s parent company.

The images show that it has a hotshoe, a covered socket for a shutter release cable, and some sort of window that may be for an AF-assist lamp or light sensor. We expect the Cactus V6 to be backwards-compatible with the Cactus V5 and LV5.

The fact that the company is teasing the units now suggests that a beta test will soon commence, perhaps with a view to releasing the triggers near the end of the year. What do you think?
