X100F issue with fill-in flash at higher speeds
I have purchased 2 Cactus V6 II transmitters, both updated to
FUJ.1.002 firmware. One unit is attached
to the hot shoe of a Fuji X100F (leaf shutter) running firmware v 2.00 (most recent), in TX
mode; the second unit in RX mode is controlling an off-camera Nikon SB-800
flash (HSS compatible).
While the Fuji X100F doesn’t have a dedicated HSS sync mode,
thanks to its leaf shutter it is capable of syncing its built-in flash at
speeds up to 1/1000 sec (in TTL mode). This
makes it a perfect solution for fill-in flash during outdoor photography even
shooting wide open.
With the attached Cactus V6 II transmitter however only sync
speeds of 1/30 and 1/60 sec can be achieved.
For all other speeds the off-camera flash is not triggered adequately. On the V6 II the normal HSS mode cannot be changed
(always off) and there is no <Learn HSS> option available anymore on the
menu once the transmitter is connected to the hot shoe of the X100F (see https://www.cactus-image.com/community/discussion/comment/6555/#Comment_6555)
Any idea how to sync the off-camera flash at higher speeds
to achieve fill-ins for outdoor shooting?
