EOS Remote App on iPhone Doesn't trigger V6 (to RF60)

I've got a canon 6d with a v6 in the hot shoe triggering an off camera RF60.

I'm using the EOS Remote app on my iPhone to trigger the canon 6d shutter release.

The v6/RF60 DOES NOT fire when I trigger the camera shutter release with the EOS remote app.

The v6/RF60 DOES fire if I press the shutter release button on the camera.

Is the EOS Remote app incapable of triggering the v6?


  • Found the answer:
    Buried on page 171 of the owners manual it states to use Non-Canon flash units/syncs you have to disable Silent LV shoot. The flash will not fire if it is set to Mode 1 or Mode 2.

    I tried this and it works over wifi perfectly.
  • Glad to hear you have it sorted!  Thanks @jzphoto

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.012", "FUJ.1.002", "v1.02".

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware v2.05!

    Metz M400 (for Fujifilm) is now supported on the Cactus V6 II (HSS and TTL).
