(There will also be a dedicated Sony version – V6 IIs, offering the same cross-brand remote control abilities with HSS. Stay tuned!) Two High-Speed Sync Modes: 1. NORMAL HSS: Supports shutter speed up to 1/8000s. 2. POWER SYNC: Boosts flash contribution above camera’s x-sync speed, perfect for extreme conditions where Normal HSS is not powerful enough. Highly Intelligent: V6 II can now auto-detect the on-camera portable flashes at device start-up by selecting the system the flash belongs to and assigning an Auto flash profile. Moreover, it now works with previously unsupported digital-only TTL flash models on the V6 and expands its compatibility. Similarly, the V6 II will auto-detect the camera and selects the system accordingly. This simple plug-and-play makes the setting up extremely quick and easy that both amateurs and professionals appreciate. Remote Power and Zoom Control: Besides remote power control, remote zoom control is now available toall compatible TTL flashes, which was only available on Cactus RF60 seriesWireless Flash. This will give photographers much quicker controls by swappingcontrols of power and zoom settings directly on the V6 II Multi-master: The V6 II now allows multiple photographers to trigger off-camera flashes at the same time. Not only is this great for wedding and events, it is also perfect for running photography workshops. Features at a Glance: 1. Cross-brand wireless manual power and zoom control with HSS […]

    Camera(s) tested that does not support high-speed sync modes on the Cactus V6 II: Fujifilm X-E2, Olympus OM-D E-M1

    Will just one on lets say a Fuji xt-2 trigger the Godox AD600 and or the Godox 860-ii with HSS?

    Cactus V6 II Fuji X-T1 HSS Test by Shawn Himmelman

    Thank you Shawn for sharing.

    For some reason, the YouTube didn't let me to show your comment even I already approved it. So, I created this new reply here instead.

    Oh, one more comment, or rather questions.

    With the V6 II, I'm looking forward to being able to use it with my V6 (version 1).. I know, a firmware update is in the works to work with it. And, as I understand it, it will only support Power Sync, and not Normal HSS or Forced HSS. That's fine.

    My question is with Power Sync, does the flash you would use with it necessarily need to have HSS capabilities? I'm thinking Power Sync is just a particularly strong flash that's extended longer, to put it simply, and not made up of multiple short flashes like HSS. I would hope as long as whatever flash (w/out HSS) has the ability to control the flash output as such, it should be possible.

    That would be great to extend the use of some flashes I have that do not have HSS so I could still at least use with Power Sync to shoot with at higher shutter speeds.

    Anyways, would be interested to know what type of speedlights Power Sync works with.

    Thanks.

    Just received my V6 II today. It's working great so far and as advertised.

    Admittedly, although the setup is actually quite fast and simple, I had a small technical difficulty getting it to work properly.

    for reference, I have the V6 II and RF60 and using with my Fuji X-Pro2.

    It's true you need to enable "Forced HSS" with Fuji cameras and set HSS by Learning HSS so that HSS will actually work. BUT, the thing that threw me off with my setup was I did not have Forced HSS On. You turn Forced HSS on and off by pressing the dial. I must have pressed it by mistake and turned off Forced HSS. If you have Forced HSS off, Learning HSS does not work. You want to be sure Forced HSS is on before you attempt to Learn HSS.

    After I found that out and redid my setup, HSS was working perfectly fine and as it should.

    Anyways, a little point of frustration and confusion primarily due on my part, but overall, I am very pleased to have off camera HSS working with my Fuji. Opens a lot of creative possibilities.

    Hey Cactus Image,

    Does the V6 II enable HSS for any manual flash? I'm wondering specifically about the Lumopro LP180 which I use with both Canon and Fuji bodies.

    Thanks!

    The V6 II uses multi-system shoe that supports cross-brand camera and flash system, including Pentax. The wireless HSS works with Pentax already. With V6II, Pentax camera is capable to trigger in HSS with Canon, Nikon , Olympus and Pentax system flashes.

  • John Summerfield 1 year ago

    I currently have three V6 transceivers and various compatible Canon and Yongnuo speedlights.

    what must I buy to have HSS support?

  • poncio dupont 1 year ago

    Yawza, yawza, yawza…Alex.
    And after this dog & pony show, the REAL question looms:
    Is the new CACTUS V6 IIs already on the market?
    Have you tried?
    Does it work on SONY RX-10 to sync the studio strobes?
    Thanks.

    This awesome trigger brings HSS to my Godox flashes to my Fujifilm X-T1, I even made a video, check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRmW7CyVEQ8

  • brufman 1 year ago

    So, this works with Olympus OM-D E-M1 and E-M5 with the FL-50R?

  • Cactus Image 1 year ago

    AF assist works in both RX and TX units. That's quite useful in dark environment when you need more light sources to focus, in different angles from the RX units.

  • Mathieu Carbou 1 year ago

    Is it also compatible with the new Nikon SB-5000 AF Speedlight ?

  • iglyduckling 1 year ago

    When will this be available for the Sony MI shoe (A7 series)?

  • Mathieu Carbou 1 year ago

    What the star next to "Yongnuo 568EX*" means ?

  • fotoinajuicebox 1 year ago

    Does the MK II have the Learning Profile feature from the original?

  • *Veganislife* 1 year ago

    Is this now allowing HSS with the Fujifilm cameras and the RF60 flashes???
