V6 II is NOT compatible with the V6!

My V6 II Tx will fire the Canon 430EX ii flash on the V6 Rx, but cannot control the power output.

Both Cactus units are on the latest firmware.

HELP.

Basically, my one year old V6 is useless now....

  • Have you updated the V6 firmware to V2.1.001 yet?

    Any firmware version before that won't work with the V6II.
  • V6 with V2.1.001 was bad!!
    Before that V6 work fine with YN685C+V6, but upgrade to fw V2 it can't work correcttly.

    I mean V6 to V6 the FW V2 was bad.

    PS: I don't have V6II.

    Thanks for reporting your findings.
    Unfortunately we do not have the YN-685c so we cannot test for you immediately.

    Until we finds a solution, and that you do not have the V6 II, please use the previous firmware version for now.

    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", "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) and not by X-TTL firmware versions: PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet. 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A01 and A02 currently ONLY works with PEN.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.

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware version 205 or later!

    Metz M400 (for Fujifilm) is now supported on the Cactus V6 II (HSS and TTL).
