Cactus V6 II overview

  • 1Description

Able to support numerous brands and types of speedlights and flashes, the Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V6 II 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 uses 2.4 GHz radio communication to trigger other units from up to 328' away. The main advantage of the V6 II 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 II 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 II reviews

    Wireless Flash Transceiver V6 II is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome flash transecivers work great! I got my Cactus V6 II (mark 2) transceiver work as advertised and exceptionally well. With V6II, my Canon 5D3 is capable to shoot in HSS with wireless control to other off camera flashes, including Nikon SB-900 and Cactus RF60. I also have a V6IIs for Sony as transmitter with my Sony A6000 to trigger the above flashes with V6II as receiver in HSS. Thanks Cactus to bring the cross-brand flash system idea into reality. To Margaux, you may have to update the RF60 firmware to V2.00 in order to make it work with V6II. Firmware updater can be found in their official website. The V2.00 doesn't work with V6 (mark 1) yet. They will have the V6 firmware for compatible with V6II and RF60.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage for Fuji I bought this for the Fuji system as it says it can support HSS. It can't. The manual says there is a wraparound, but it does not work reliably. Also, the one I was sent from B&H does not even work Group D. It not a user issue as my version 1 works all 4 groups with no problem. There is absolutely no reason to upgrade from version 1. A very well known British photographer who is a Fuji ambassador recommended this system to me initially and because the HSS was so bad on the V6 II, he is switching to Godox. I live in Asia where if it was not so expensive to ship, I would send it back. As it is, it will either be thrown away or just sit on a shelf.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Fit I have a V6 that works perfectly with my Cactus RF60 speedlites. I have been very, very happy with it. As a Fuji shooter, I couldn't wait for the V6 II as it enables me to exceed my camera's 1/180 sec sync speed limit. Unfortunately, the V6 II does not communicate with the RF60 units--doesn't fire, can't change power/zoom from the V6 II. I updated all of the units with the new firmware, and the problem persists. The mounting shoe doesn't seem to fit properly. Very hard to push into place and trying to do so scratched the hot shoe on my X-T1. I have contacted Cactus and asked that they replace it with a new unit. I am hopeful that they will do so and I can upgrade my rating and recommend it to others.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cross brand flash trigger works! I have a Pentax K-1 camera and I tried this cross brand flash trigger with a Metz 52-AF1 speedlite, a Baja B4 battery powered strobe, and an Elinchrom ELB400 with the HS head. It works fine in Normal/HSS mode with the Metz speedlite and the Elinchrom ELB400. Would not work with the Baja B4- triggering was inconsistent. Also, with the Elinchrom ELB400 the Cactus triggers worked in Powersync mode with a Powersync timing adjustment set to 8. This is equivalent to Elinchrom's Hi-sync mode. On the Elinchrom ELB400 I use the external sync socket connected to a Cactus V6 II set to Rx or receiver mode, manual trigger. The second Cactus on the Pentax camera is set to Tx mode, Pentax camera, Manual flash. This allows me to use my Pentax at any shutter speed up to 1/8000 sec. This is great!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I'll keep searching for a Fuji system... Was excited to read that we poor Fuji X- series shooters might finally have some triggers giving us the option of HSS. Well, despite downloading the new firmware, reading endless workarounds, I could NOT get these to work consistently with my XT-1. And that's in regular remote trigger mode!! I could not get them to to fire my Canon 580EX with any ability to raise or loser power. And couldn't get my Nissan i40 to fire in pass through mode... I've been a pro for twenty years- going back to my RadioPoppers.... no HSS, but I can balance on and off camera flash.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small but useful improvements Still a rather large device to fit on top of a camera, nevertheless the updates on the V6 are initially useful. The menu is easier to use & a nice blue, which seems easier to read than the previous amber. The auto recognition of system & flash is appealing, but once set, is not really justification for the significant price increase. But the inability to learn non profiled flashes or to transfer from V6 is a drawback. Still, far better than using optical line of sight systems like CLS.... if more cumbersome.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs Some Work but Solid Overall I own a Fuji X-Pro 2. I was pretty spoiled with me X100s and missed being able to shoot in midday and block out the sun using SS up to 1/2000th. This image attached was shot at 1/8000th! Pros: HSS on Fuji. Just make sure the flash you're using is listed as a supported flash. Cons: Needs some work as far as consistency. I bought two triggers. One trigger works on my flash and the other doesn't. Followed instructions for both of them. I can adjust Power but I can't adjust Zoom on my flash but I think this is because it's the Nikon version of the Yongnuo 568 EX which isn't fully supported. It's also a little clunky on the XPRO2 (the lever for the latch gets in the way) but it's a nice fit overall. Once you get it set up you're pretty much good to go. So far so good. No real complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes! Finally, a respectable off camera flash option for Fuji I own the Cactus V6 (version 1) and RF60 and almost decided to sell it because it didn't quite have 1 important feature which I really must have for my work, that's HSS. Just around the time I was pondering this, I get news that Cactus will make a V6 II with HSS! Yes! And, it will work with the existing RF60 speedlight and V6 (version 1) via firmware update. This both saves me time and more importantly money since I would not have to invest more $$ into another flash system all together. With the new Cactus V6 II, you can get the Cactus RF60 speedlight to shoot HSS with Fujifilm off camera up to 1/8000! Love it. It works great. BTW, when using Fuji, you set it to Forced HSS.. won't get into the explanation, but it basically does the same things as normal/regular HSS does. Finally, I can shoot wide open with high shutter speeds and flash with my Fuji without ND filters nor the much slower 1/250th flash sync speed. What's also great is you can remotely control your various flash groups' power and zoom via the V6 II. No need to run around to each flash to do it. In addition to HSS, you have the alternative option to set the V6 II to fire the flash in Power Sync mode.. essentially, it fires a flash at full power with extended duration so it can cover the entire length of your shutter actuation at very high speeds.. great to use if HSS isn't strong enough and you need that extra kick in flash output. You have options! For price per feature, it's hard to beat this. If you have existing flashes, just get the V6 II units.. one for on camera, the other(s) for whatever flash(es) you have and want to use with it. The Cactus V6 II is compatible with so many non-Cactus flashes. Otherwise, if you do not have any other flash yet, a simple 1 light setup with 1 V6 II and 1 Cactus RF60 Speedlight is a very good buy for about $265. It connects/pairs automatically. You just have to learn the camera once and that's it.
