X-T1 + Cactus + Nissin i40 remote HSS

Hi everyone,
I would like to achieve the same result as in this video:


I have no idea what I am doing wrong, but it does not work.
Same 2 Cactuses (fw 1.1.006), X-T1 (fw 4.31), Nissin i40 -> same combination.
i40 works correctly in Sync mode (1/180), I can set the power etc.
I tried everything but can't get the HSS. Led light is blinking on the i40 in M mode, TX learned HSS, everything looks fine, flash is fired but a scene is completely dark (on 1/1000, 1/2000, 1/4000). The flash has no effect.

Strange in the video is that the guy does not turn on "forced HSS".

When I connect RX Cactus to Godox AD600BM, HSS works correctly. 

Any idea or could someone try please? Thanks.

  • You do not need to turn on <FORCED HSS> because this trick is entirely done on the i40.

    Make sure you press and hold the pilot button to correctly hack the flash.

    Have fun!

  • Yeah. Great. How did you do that? What exactly do you set on the camera and the cactus?
    My combination still doesn't work... :(

    you don't need to turn on force hss on cactus. just turn hss on i40 and use lasted fw(008) on cactus
  • Thanks @basz!

    Hope it's working for you, @Disgeman.
