FLASH RF60 does not respond to changes in light setting on Cactus V6II

Hi, I use Nikon D800, Cactus V6 II and RF 60. I note that when I modify the exposure of the remote flash changing light settings in Cactus V6 II, the settings on the flash occasionally most of the times do not get automatically adjusted. What am I doing wrong?


  • Hi @Olivio55,

    What was the distance between the camera (V6 II in TX mode) and the flash (RF60 in Slave mode)?

    If you are shooting in confined spaces (10 cm ~ 3 meters), set the V6 II to SHORT RANGE, under Radio Setup.

    Also, make sure your V6 II and RF60 are using the latest firmware version.

    Thank you.

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "NIK.A.001", "v.103".

    For the time being, Cactus V6 (MK1) running on firmware version 2.1.001 can be triggered by a V6 II (MK2) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) but not by X-TTL firmware versions:  PEN.A.001 NIK.A.001 OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet for an "A" version firmware on the V6 (MK1). 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A04 and A03 currently ONLY works with PEN.A.001 NIK.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  Other "A" version of X-TTL firmware will be released soon. For both Multi-brand HSS and X-TTL firmware versions (FUJ, SIG, SON), install firmware version 103 / 205 on your RF60X / RF60.
