  • Thanks for reporting.

    We have already done the initial investigation and the fix will be available on the next firmware version. Before we release it, we will run more tests together with other bug fixes. But we will try our best to provide an update as soon as we can. 

    Your patience during this time is very much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Here's my test:  

    Two (2) V6 II units both running on 1.1.012
    Camera: Nikon D600
    Flash: Yongnuo YN568EX for Nikon

    Is the setup or powering on sequence any different than yours?

    Thank you!

  • @Ter59
    Make sure you don't select "POWER SYNC" as the sync mode on the V6II Tx (transmitter on the camera). This will force the power output to always be 100%.

    Choose "HSS NORMAL" or "HSS OFF".
  • It seems to work now after reset both units to factory settings.

    I did not select "POWER SYNC" before  I reset both units to factory settings.

  • Good to hear, @Ter59.
    Let us know if you require further assistance.
    Thank you.
