Fuji X-PRO2 flash setting

I haven't used my V6II for a couple of months but prior to that I'm sure I had them working okay (using a Nikon SB910 flash) with my X-T1 and X-PRO2. Since then I've updated the X-PRO2 to the latest Fuji firmware update and (I think) the flash options look different to before the update - no forced flash which I thought I used before. So I can't get the flash to work now. What do I have to set on the X-PRO2 to use the Cactus units please? Thanks


  • Okay, think I've sorted it - user error! I hadn't updated the Cactus firmware properly (first time I'd used it and whatever I did it hadn't updated to the latest version). Now appears to be working with the flash function setting (in the X-PRO2) set to M.

  • Hello Gary, Thanks for the update.

    .... Now appears to be working with the flash function setting (in the X-PRO2) set to M.

    Could you clarify where did you set to M?

    And are your V6 II updated to the latest firmware version, 1.1.006?

    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).

  • I can only set X-Pro2 to TTL or OFF. How do you get M?. When the Cactus unit is turned on, the M switches to TLL. No M available.
