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: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "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 and OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet. 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A01 and A02 currently ONLY works with PEN.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.

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware version 205 or later!

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