Cactus V6 II Transceiver Overview

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.

Features: 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

question

Does the V6II work in high speed sync with Flash Transceiver V5 Duo in TTL? If not, which model receiver do you use?
Asked by: Paul F.
While you can trigger a V5 unit from a V6 II, the highest sync speed possible is 1/1000 of a sec with the V5.

question

Can I use a Cactus transceiver on the camera (X-T20) to send a TTL signal to an Yongnuo flash (YN560 IV) off-camera? Or do I have to buy two Cactus (one for the camera and one for the flash) so the TTL can work?
Asked by: R. S.
A Cactus V6 II must be connected to the YN560 IV flash in order to trigger it from a Cactus V6 II on your camera. The internal radio receiver that the YN560 IV has will only be triggered by the Yongnuo YN560 TX for Nikon or Canon.

question

Can I mount it on Panasonic GX7/GX8 and able to control Godox AD600 without any receiver???
Asked by: Dmitry
To work with the V6 II you need a receiver on each flash. The best is to get a V6 II for each off camera flash in addition to one for the camera.On compatibility it should work with Godox flashes. But there are pre-installed flash profiles in the V6II and that particular Godox is not installed. But in the learn mode it should work.

I’ve purchased two Cactus V6iis for my Sony A7iii and want to purchase a speedlite that will work with my other V6iis. Would a Godox-for-Sony (such as the V860iis) work with the V6iis?
Asked by: Kelly
The Godox V860 https://bhpho.to/2YXOk47 or any flash designed to work with a Sony Multi interface foot.

question

Will this work with Leica Q for ttl?
Asked by: Tyler
This units do not pass TTL info with any camera. But they need a TTL capable flash to remote control the power and the zoom head. You can read all info on the manufacturer website.

question

Will this unit work on a Nikon D5? Seems some of the transceivers don't work with D5 and D500 Nikon's newer cameras...

Unfortunately, Cactus does not offer a list of compatible cameras for this product.

question

If I have the same brand... say Panasonic Flash and a Pansonic Camera... will the TTL information pass from the transmitter to the Flash off the camera as if it were on the Camera itself? I'm not really understanding what they mean by TTL pass through. I like M43 but finding HSS that will work with TTL seems impossible.
Asked by: john m.
The TTL Pass Through refers to the TTL signal being passed between the camera the flash, being that there are multiple contacts on the hotshoe, just as it would when the flash is on camera. Cactus mentions that in order to utilize this function, the flash and camera need to belong to the same TTL system.
