Learning manual flash - Yongnuo 560 iii

I purchased Cactus v6 transceivers and I already have Yongnuo 560 iii and 468 flashes. But they are not work with V6. They are manual flashes. How do I make it work? Please help. Thanks.


  • Hello @arunvenuav,

    Only TTL system flashes can be learned.
    Manual flashes such as the YN560III cannot be learned.
    For manual flashes, you will have to adjust power manually on the flash unit and not wirelessly.

    Please refer to flashes listed below - if you have TTL flash model that is not listed below but runs on one of the system below (Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Pentax) and it offers analogue TTL then you would have a chance of learning it's profile.

    Canon system models:

    - Cactus AF45C, AF50C;

    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.
