    Does anyone know if a Cactus V2 receiver will work with a Cactus V2s Transmitter? I just accidentally bought the wrong one...

    I think it should work. I've got an old PT-04 set and they work fine with the newer V2s set.

    if that's the case, then anyone looking for a second receiver to their cactus v2s transmitter, buy a cactus v2 since its about 5 dollars cheaper.

    thanks big mike.

    The older ones don't work well with my Canon 430EX though.

    I believe the V2 should work with the Vivitar 283 you post on their other thread.

    Quoted from another site "However when I emailed Gadget Infinity they said that for the high-voltage 283s you should use the V2 trigger, not the V2s"

    Yes, this is said to be the case. Go for the V2.
