V6 II with Pentax K-1 and Flashpoint XPLOR 600 for Sony

I'm transitioning from Pentax to Sony mirrorless cameras and native lenses. I want to be able to shoot with my Pentax K-1 off camera the Flashpoint XPLOR 600 HSS in manual HSS and do not want to use TTL. Will I be able to use a Cactus V6 II on my Pentax K-1 with an R2 Transmitter for Sony on the V6 II and shoot in manual HSS? Will I have remote control of power levels?


  • Hi Mark,

    You are moving from Pentax to Sony... but you mentioned that you are still shooting on a K-1?
    Which Sony camera are you using?

    Our setup for all cameras + a studio strobe with onboard HSS:

    V6 II TX on camera hot shoe (V6 IIs for Sony
    V6 II RX - sync cord - studio strobe

    Power level is adjusted on the strobe's own transmitter.

    Whilst power is done by V6 II units.

    Hope this helps.

    TTL or HSS not working on Cactus V6 II and V6 IIs? Be sure to check hot shoe connectivity by doing the <CAMERA INFO> check.
