Fuji X-T1 and Nikon SB800

Hi, I would like to get confirmation that with this combo, the V6 will operates the "wake up" function on the flash when half pressing the shutter release. Thank you.


  • We just tested in our studio and the SB-800 won't even go to sleep with the V6.  I think it pinches the SB-800 every so often to keep it awake all the time.

    When I switch off the V6 whilst the SB-800 is on, the flash instantly goes to Standby. And once I switch on the V6, the SB-800 wakes up.

    Is Always On a good thing to have so it's always ready?

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "NIK.A.001", "v.103".

    For the time being, Cactus V6 (MK1) running on firmware version 2.1.001 can be triggered by a V6 II (MK2) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) and not by X-TTL firmware versions:  PEN.A.001 NIK.A.001 OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet for an "A" version firmware on the V6 (MK1). 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A04 and A03 currently ONLY works with PEN.A.001 NIK.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  Other "A" version of X-TTL firmware will be released soon. For both Multi-brand HSS and X-TTL firmware versions (FUJ, SIG, SON), install firmware version 103 / 205 on your RF60X / RF60.

  • Thank you. It is a bit power consuming to stay alive all the time but the simultaneous "go to sleep" with the V6 could be a guarantee to not fall out of power after a break in the cession.
    Is it the case ? You spoke about switching the V6 off; what is the behavior when the V6 go stand by ?
    Thnaks again
