Cactus v6ii timer delay

I am trying to configure the Cactus v6ii as a hot-shoe inline timer delay.

Here a pic of the configuration: (I was getting repeated errors trying to upload the image).

Camera: D750
Hot shoe splitter: Andoer
R trigger: Elinchrom HS for Nikon, running a bank of ELB400s
L Trigger: Elinchrom generic sitting atop the v6ii, running a bank of Style studio lights

Everything works as it should, except the timer delay.

I want to control the delay of the L trigger after front curtain. I had hoped the Cactus could do this while sitting inline. Reading other threads, it appears the only way to do this is to run a combination of Cacti in Tx and Rx modes (while worrying about relative geometries between these modules). This is not a workable solution.

Is there any way to configure a single Cactus v6ii as an inline timer delay from the hotshoe?

If not, I have a BNIB Cactus v6ii for sale. I'm located in Ottawa Canada. Net to me 75% of whatever I paid (bought from PM for details.

Thanks for reading to the end, Rob


  • Bump. Any chance of a firmware upgrade?
  • Hi Rob,

    After consulting R&D team, unfortunately that's not possible on the V6 II. Sorry!

    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.
