Set-up for Fuji X-T2
I do not use my off-camera flash set-up that often and the downside of that is that I forget the exact settings for camera, flash and most of all: my 3 V6 II units. Is there anybody out there who can tell me how to configure all components so that I can make an off-camera shot?
My Fuji X-t2 is on Manual settings, with ss 250, which is currently my maximum option. I know there are High Speed options as well, but let's first get my normal setup going.
I have, on the hot shoe, a V6 II unit as Receiver (RX). Relay is ON.
This unit is connected to the camera using the 2.5 plug into the side of the camera.
The second V6 II unit is underneath the Flash unit and it is on Transceiver (TX). relay is OFF.
Both are set to chanel 1 and group A.
When I press the unit underneath the flash, the flash responds.
When I press the unit on the hot shoe, nothing happens.
When I use my plug/mini USB cable that I just bought, pressing the hot shoe unit will operate the shutter, but the flash still does not respond. My V6 II firmware has been updated to 1.005 end of last year and I seem to remember that it all worked fine at the time.
So.... here are the preferred scenarios that I need guidance with:
1. Single Off camera flash, camera operated by hand, by pressing down the shutter.
I can walk around and operate both camera and flash.
2. Off camera flash with 2 flash units. One Canon, one generic from China (Yunguo), camera operated by hand, by pressing down the shutter.
I can walk around and operate the camera and the 2 flash units
3. Off-camera flash with 1 flash unit, camera operated remotely
Using the third V6 II unit, I want to operate the shutter remotely. I have the new USB cable that will allow me to do that so now all I need is for the flash to participate.
My goal is to make a cheat sheet with the settings. I just don't do this enough to have it commited to my physical memory...
Any help is much appreciated!
