Mixed Flash Brand Compatabilty Question

I have a Fuji XT-2, 3 Cactus VII's, an Olympus Flash and a Fuji Flash. I can get them to work individually but can't seem to get both to work at the same time. Is this a limitation of the Cactus V2 or am I not setting it up properly?


  • Of course you can mix your flash brands at the same time.

    First question, which firmware version are you running on the V6 II units?
    Also, which camera firmware on the X-T2?

    For the flash, sequence in setting up is important.
    Always switch on the flash first,
    And then the V6 II (in RX mode).

    The default auto-detect will recognize the flash system and apply an AUTO flash profile - this is the safest route unless you label your V6 II units and everytime you use the same transceiver for the same flash, then you can manually select the flash system and profile.

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "NIK.A.001", "v.103", or "A06".

    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.
