Cactus V6 IIs overview

  • 1Description

Able to support numerous brands and types of speedlights and flashes, the Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V6 IIs is a versatile and capable flash trigger that offers added functionality to make remote flash work easier. This model is able to support Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Olympus, Panasonic, and Pentax flash systems with ease and is equipped with Sony's Multi Interface Shoe for direct compatibility with their latest cameras and flashes. It uses 2.4 GHz radio communication to trigger other units from up to 328' away. The main advantage of the V6 IIs is high-speed sync, of which two modes are offered. A normal setting uses a protocol depending on the camera system involved whereas the Power Sync can boost the flash for moments when Normal HSS is not powerful enough.

Users will be able to set up flashes in one of sixteen channels or three groups. Also, it has a Multi-Master setting that allows multiple shooters to trigger the same flashes, useful for demonstrations or events with a second shooter. By using flash profiles to register specific speedlights, the V6 IIs gains a few capabilities, such as an Absolute Power Mode, which calculates the equivalent power settings between multiple flashes. Additionally, it has a TTL pass-through hot shoe on the top and offers a 3.5mm sync terminal for plugging into strobes and other lights.

Please note that high speed sync is not supported when using the following cameras:
Fujifilm X-E2
Panasonic DMC-GX8

Please note that this item is incompatible with some copies of the following cameras:
Olympus OM-D E-M1

    Cactus V6 IIs reviews

    Wireless Flash Transceiver V6 IIs for Sony Multi Interface Shoe is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally an advanced Radio trigger for SONY Great product. Well finished. Finally SONY users have a radio trigger with all functions like High Speed Sync (Normal HSS and Power Sync), remote control of flash power and head zoom, remote AF light, etc. Also the V6IIs includes features like the remote shutter (additional cable needed), Relay mode, Sport Shutter mode (Additional cable needed), etc. Great that the Firmware can be updated via USB cable. To avoid zebra stripes on HSS you need to turn off the e-Front electronic curtain. I am really happy with my units.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cross brand HSS sync I use this to control my two Canon 430EX strobes from my Sony A7R ii. I was really impressed how seamlessly the strobes integrate with the camera. I am able to control focal width and power on the strobes remotely from the unit on the camera and they sync without a problem beyond the 1/250s max flash sync speed the camera has when connected directly to a strobe. I've tried it down to 1/2000s without a hitch (it may go faster, I just haven't tried it). I have not experienced any glitches in the connection between transmitter/receiver. The only downside is the small delay between pressing the trigger and the shutter actually going off but I can live with that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great companion for Sony cameras A co-worker has had the Cactus V6 for a while. When I wanted to upgrade from my dumb triggers these were the obvious choice. Works easily with the other Cactus triggers, and it's nice having all the same interface. The only downside is the Sony shoe prevents you from sliding it onto a standard cold shoe for light stands. I had a Hot Shoe to 1/4-20 Male Post Adapter and it screws into the 1/4-20 socket on the bottom of all Cactus flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now with Remote TTL (June 2017) Yes, with the new X-TTL firmware (available at no extra charge) now you have remote TTL to your off-camera flashes. Notice that the TTL compatible Cactus flash is the RF-60X (Updated to the latest firmware version). Remote TTL is working like charm with SONY flashes. Also, you can mix TTL and Manual flashes on same arrangement. Just use different groups for TTL and Manual flashes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great...be sure to read instructions I messed around with this for way too long before I read the instructions. I am using an A7rII and a Sony HVL-43M flash. If you are using a Sony flash put the flash in TTL mode, not Wireless mode, in order to manually adjust the power. Once I did that, everything worked great, including HSS.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works on Sony I've used w/ both Sony a7rii and 6500 along with Sony flashes. Works great. Only complaint is they seem to fall asleep too quickly and need to be reset before they work again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Base Broke Within First Uses Similar to Sony Mount - The hot shoe mount cracked the 1st or second time I ever used the product - working on sending back / repair now.
