How many Cactus V6iis i need for HSS? 1 or 2?

Hello everyone, this question had been probably answered hundreds of times before but i haven't been able to find a conclusive answer on if 1 cactus v6ii full works.

I have a Pentax K3 and ordered a Godox AD600bm + X1T-F trigger along with a Cactus V6ii. My question is can i fire AD600 in hss mode while via godox x1t on top of cactus v6ii ?

K3>v6ii>x1t<<<< godox ad600

  • Officially, you need 2.

    1 mounted on camera and 1 connected directly to the strobe via sync cord.

    If you trrigger-stack, which is not recommended by us, because the V6 II was not designed to function this way. So 1 could work. We did test a Profoto Air-C TTL remote and even TTL worked, besides HSS. 

    Thanks for dropping your message.

    Cheers!

    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.
