X-t2 - dark top section

Hi there

Just got 2 x Cactus V6 ii's and an elinchrom ranger with A head. The elinchrom has a max sync speed of 1/6000.

Tried doing a couple of test shots with the second cactus plugged into the sync cable slot at 1/1000) on the ranger and I still seem to have a dark top section of the screen. No matter how I position the flash, the top seems to be dark. It's not quite the line you see with the shutter, but the sync speed doesn't seem 100%. Any ideas.

  • Have you used <LEARN HSS> in the <CAMERA & FLASH SETUP> in the V6 II TX MENU?

    After learning HSS, please activate the <FORCED HSS> by pressing the V6 II rotatory dial when shooting at HSS. 

    I hope that helps.

  • Hi Ray. Based on some notes on saw on another post, I tried switching the transmitter and receiver units around and it is now working perfectly.

    This seems strange given they are both transceivers, I would have expected either to work based on which has the TX and RX. Is there any reason why this would make a difference?
  • I'm guessing one of the V6II bottom hot shoe doesn't fit in place on the camera hot shoe. It could be alignment issue or something wrong with the bottom hot shoe.

    This is kind of strange because all V6II are supposed to be same in design.

  • Update firmware to 1.1.010 and set Flash System to Manual. then do the Learn HSS. It should work.
