ETTL canon 700D - Metz 52 AF-1 - 2 Cactus V6 II

Hello,


I bought 2 cactus to control my remote flash (a Metz 52 AF-1). 

I have one cactus on my camera (canon 700d) and another one under my flash. 
The system is set on ETTL and the flash is well triggered. 

However, the flash intensity is not automatically adjusted.

Is-it a problem of setting or compatibility?

Thank you for you help.

  • Hello @filippo,

    Try switching the flash first, set it to TTL, and then switch on the V6 II to RX mode.  It will auto-detect the flash system and apply an AUTO flash profile.

    Let us know if this fixes the problem.

  • Hello @Antonio

    I try what you recommends. Unfortunately that did not fix the problem. The receiver is on manual mode even though it detects the canon system. 
    It looks that I have to set the flash power manually.

    To make it simpler, do a factory reset.

    You may have previously selected a flash profile manually, where despite you have now selected auto-detect flash system, the manual flash profile selection is still there.

    Let us know how you get on. Thanks!
