D600+SB28 TTL "translate"

Hi all, 

As you can know D600 and SB-28 are not compatible with TTL. 

So my question is to know if i put a V6 beetween my D600 and SB-28, the TTL will be "translate" and works on my flash?? Hope you understanding what i mean.

Thank's a lot and have a nice day.

  • Hello @Notrac

    You might have misunderstood the V6 system - there are no actual TTL metering from the camera that would "translate" (wirelessly transmit TTL signals) to the flash (SB-28 in your case).

    As long as the flash model is listed as compatible with the V6, if you are only using an off-camera flash setup your camera model is irrelevant. In other words you can use a Sony A7 or a Fujifilm XT-1 and still be able to wirelessly control your SB-28 speedlight.  For off-camera applications, the actual power control is between the V6 transceivers, and not between the camera and flash.

    Despite it has the ability to remotely control power outputs of TTL flash models, the V6 is still a set of manual flash triggers.

    For flash model compatibility please refer to the product page or to these lists which are upated as well: Hope this helps!

    Thank you.

    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).

  • Hi @antonio

    Thank's for answer, i know that's V6 don't transmit TTL signal wirelessly.

    Maybe my question was not so clear, english is not my native langage.

    I was asking about TTL pass-trough feature when using V6 and flash on camera hotshoe. So i asking me if i put V6 between SB-28 and D600 on hotshoe (not wirelessly) i'll be able to use SB-28 TTL with D600?

    Thank you.


  • Oh, TTL Pass Through!  YES, is the answer.

    Press and Hold the MENU button (of the V6 in TX mode) and you will see a message on the LCD pops up: TTL PASS THROUGH

    Then, on the main screen, you will also see "TTL" icon below the battery symbol.

    Next, press the MENU button once, scroll left 3 times, go into CHOOSE PROFILE, select Nikon and the flash you are using (Nikon SB-28). Hit OK and you are ready to shoot.

    Thanks!

  • Ok thx, 

    But TTL work or not with this combo?

    Because SB-28's TTL is not supported natively with D600.

    That's why i was talking about TTL "signal translation", and if i'll be able to use sb-28's TTL, instead of  using it with manual settings, when combining with a V6 and a D600.

    Have a nice day.

    Best regards, Benoit.


  • If the SB-28 does not work on the D600 directly, the V6 will not be able to fix that problem. It does not do any kind of translation.
