Cactus V6II does not work with the new firmware 2.00 X-Pro2
I updated my X-Pro2 with the new firmware 2.00. It works very fine and the autofocus is so good in any situation. Now, the Cactus V6II does not work with the X-Pro2. Do i need a beta firmware or something else?

a result of my case were as follows.
X-Pro2 firmware Ver.2.00
Cactus V6II firmware Ver.1.0.108（beta version）
Flash units - Godox V850 (HSS Mode), mounted on the Cactus V6II
I removed the hot shoe spring.
-CAMERA SYSTEM : FUJIFILM
-FLASH SYSTEM : NIKON
-FLASH PROFILE : AUTO NIKON
-I Carried out “LEARN HSS”, on SS 1/1000
-FORCED HSS : ON
-I can use the flash in a “NORMAL HSS” mode,
but I cannot use in a “POWER SYNC” mode.
From Godox FT-16 mounted on the Cactus V6II, send to V850 (HSS mode),
It showed the same result.
As this sounds like a timing issue.
We never tested your TTL cable + 1 V6 II unit setup as this was not the proper method of triggering off-camera flash, let alone with HSS support.
We have an X-Pro1 here. We will update the camera firmware and see if we can reporduce your experience.
R&D will look into this and I will post an update as soon as we have it.
R&D is looking into this as I type.
BTW were you using 1.1.108? For the record we did put up a newer 109 but I doubt there would be big changes on Fujifilm.
Thank you and I will keep you posted.
. Hi @Nicolae, are you using firmware version 1.0.109?
You can check the version by pressing A + D buttons while switching the V6 II to TX or RX mode.
Did you also go through the LEARN HSS on your X-T10?
. What is not working? Does the flash not sync? Or did the flash not fire ay all? Please clarify...
Does the flash only sync some of the time?
And flash failed to fire?
I have forwarded your findings to R&D.
We released the 1.1.005 this morning, with release notes to follow later, it is very similar to the beta 1.0.109. So for now I'd stay stick to 1.1.004 for your X-T10 and 1.1.005 for your X-Pro2 until we find out more what's wrong with the X-T10. Thanks for your patience during this time.
Thanks @Nicolae for helping us beta test the firmware too!
Thanks for the update, @mikkokan
The issue I am having is in conjunction with the Fuji Xpro 2 and Nikon SB910 speed light.
I have completed updates on camera and V6 IIs as well as resetting them.
I have to use camera flash setup to: others (and not Fuji auto set up) otherwise the flash will not fire.
The main issue I have is when the v6 iis in NON HSS and using the camera flash synch speed of 250 I get a banding in the image as though I am firing the flash above its maximum synch speed.
I have also tried this with hotshot plate removed as well and the problem is still there, the only work around I can find is if I use a synch speed of 200 by rotating the front dial on the Xpro 2 however this is not utilising the maximum flash speed of the camera.
Has anyone else experienced this problem.
