How to connect a Cactus V6 to a Pentax K5 with a Falcon Eyes Studio Flash - SOLVED

How can I connect a Cactus V6 to a Pentax K5 with a Falcon Eyes Studio Flash Set SSK-2200D
The studio flash has 3,5 mm jack sync cable. What kind of jack must be on the other end that goes into the Cactus?
I can't get them to work together...

I'm wondering why you are needing a V6, or at least what is the purpose of the trigger in your setup...? The K5 has a PC port itself.....

Are you using multiple V6 units and are trying to connect Rx units to the strobes by cable?

If you're not getting any trigger signal make sure you are staying within the max sync speed of 1/180th sec.

A regular stereo audio cable with two male connectors would do. Cactus also sell it as an accessory.

If you want help regarding troubleshooting, I suggest to post some more what is working and what isn't. For instance, does the green LED light on the V6 receiver come on when you take a shot with the K-5?

You do have two V6 units, right?
