Is my V6ii broken?
I've been using a Cactus V6 MkI and an RF60 flash for about a year now.
No issues whatsoever. The flash was triggered reliably every time, all the time.
Adjusting flash power from the V6 MkI was fast and reliable as well.
Now with the new V6 MkII I get all kind of connection problems between V6 MkII and the RF60 unit.
Even in very simple test scenarios. I.e. when used without a camera. Just fire up the RF60 then the V6 MkII and change flash power and hit the test button a few times to pop the flash.
In about 5 out of 10 test fires the flash doesn't fire at all. Changing flash power is slow and sluggish.
Rapid changing of the flash power wheel on the V6 MkII is sure to break the communication and the flash cannot be triggered at all anymore until powered off and on again.
Batteries in all units are fresh and full.
I tried a number of different radio channels - same result.
Latest firmware on all units.
All units reset to factory settings prior to test.
So, considering that the V6 MkI gives me 100% success with the very same flash and the V6 MkII has a 50% change of not firing the flash, am I correct in assuming that I got a faulty V6 Mk II unit?
