Is Cactus v6 Nikon compatible with Nissin Di866 Mark II?

Hello,

I bought 4 Cactus V6 to use with my Nikon SB700 and Nissin Di700 and Di866 Mark II Flashes.

I would like to know whether the Mark II version of the Nissin Di866 is supported by the Cactus V6 for Nikon cameras. Only the Di866 (NOT Mark II) is referenced in compatibility list for Cactus V6 for Nikon cameras.

As much as I tried I could not get the Di866 Mark II to work properly with the Cactus. When I set the Cactus to Nissin Di866, the cactus does not set the flash properly.

I updated the 4 Cactus to latest firmware, but it did not solve the problem.

I have no problem with my other two flashes and must say that the Cactus V6 is quite a cool device :o)

If the Mark II is indeed not supported, can I expect it to be supported in a near future?

Have a nice day,

Comments

  • Hello Patakreyp,

    Due to the limitation of hardware design, the V6 is not possible to support the Nissin Di866 for Nikon in the near future. But if you wish, you can use the V6 as a manual wireless flash transceiver without remote power control. Just make sure to select MANUAL FLASH in the V6 menu.

    Hope that helps.

    I find this somewhat confusing.  Are you saying the V6 does not support the Nissin Di866 Mark II or all Nissin Di866 flashes.  Since I have been having trouble getting my units to flash properly I'm wondering why and if this is the answer.

    Yes, the V6 doesn't support Nissin Di866 or Di866 ii for Nikon, whilst the Canon version is supported.
