Hello,

Thanks for all the info!
So I have been testing the lot and I think I have to make a lot more photo's to get more experience.
I also found out that if I want to get the 1/640 or whatever I have to buy two Cactus V6II and-or High-speed sync flashes.
This is an expansive hobby, lol, and I just bought the Falcon eyes set so ill wait a bit.
Im going to research the whole studio photography more before I buy anything else.
So thanks for the help!

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...

That's a lot of info.
As I said, I got a Falcon Eyes Studio Flash Set SSK-2200D to test.
The flash sync speed of the K5 is 1/180 max
I can not freeze a jumping dog.
Now what?
Cactus V6 so I can get the 1/500?

Hello,

I am sorry to bore you all, this question is probably asked a 1000 times before, but I have difficulty to understand it all and I hope someone can help me.

So here I go:

I want to make photo's like her: https://500px.com/wieselblitz.
So, Dog portraits, indoors, with global settings like: 1/640 - F10 - ISO 320-400-600
I got a Bresser BR-2245 Daylightset 1800W to test and I find it to not give me bright and sharp enough photo's.
I thought I can not make photo's like her with continues light, that's a shame because flashes and dogs... not a great combo, I think.

So is got a Falcon Eyes Studio Flash Set SSK-2200D, also to test.

The flash sync speed of the K5 is 1/180 max I learned afterwards, because I never use flash, so I can't get the 1/640 I need to have to make those kind of photo's...

So now what?
I need HSS right?

Must I buy a Cactus V6 trigger (or an other?) so that thing will make the alcon-eyes-studio-flash-set-ssk-2200d flash/work with the 1/640 (or 1/800 etc.), so it overrules the sync speed of 1/180?
Or do I also have to buy a Hotshoe flashgun to make this work?
Or is there a other way to make this all work with flash or with continues lights?

Can some one help and explain?
