Firmware version A03 on RF60 and A04 on RF60X only works with PEN.A.001, OLY.A.001, NIK.A.001

edited March 13 in Cactus V6 II
Dear V6 II users,

Only update the firmware on your RF60 and RF60X to version A01 if your V6 II is running on PEN.A.001, Pentax X-TTL firmware, or OLY.A.001 (Olympus M43) or NIK.A.001 (Nikon).

A01 will not work with:

FUJ.1.xxx
SIG.1.xxx
SON.1.xxx

In the near future, we will release an "A" firmware versions, so the above list will be later replaced by:

FUJ.A.xxx
SIG.A.xxx
SON.A.xxx


FYI the "A" stands for the new protocol which we started implementing since the release of the Pentax X-TTL firmware  (PEN.A.001) for better wireless performance. 

Further reading on Pentax X-TTL firmware:


So if you are shooting on a Fujifilm, Sigma or Sony, keep using these firmware versions:

RF60:  version 205
RF60X: version 103


Thank you for your understanding during this time.

  • FYI, with the release of the X-TTL firmware for Olympus and Panasonic (M43), there's also a new firmware for RF60/RF60X as version A02. 

    The same compatibility rules apply with FUJ.1.-, SIG.1.- and SON.1.- firmware versions.

    Thank you.
