Am I missing something Canon 80D with Canon 430EX 2

I am unable to get these triggers to work satisfactory with Canon 430EX 2 and Neewer NW680 both mounted on camera and on a receiver.

Spent hours reading through the online manual but they don't seem to be working predictably.

For example with the Canon430EX 2 mounted on the Cactus V6 11 on the camera in ETTL mode firmware A.004. ISO 100 f8 250th taken indoors the images are completely blown out. Same exposure without the trigger well exposed.

Before sending both triggers back to Amazon as not working as described I'm posting here to make I'm not missing something.


  • You may check whether the in the V6 II RX unit is set to .

    Also, make sure both V6 II are running on the same firmware. In this case, CAN.A.004 is good for Canon.

    I hope that helps.
