Fuji X-T1, Nikon SB700 and V6 on camera

Hello,

I wanted to use the SB700 on camera with the V6, so that I could control the flashpower with the V6 instead of using the flash control panel. Whatever I try, it does not work.

I put the V6 in RX mode, but then I cannot change the power output. When I use TX mode, depending on how I position the flash, the flash works, but I cannot change the power. If I slide the V6 completely on the hotshoe, the flash act as if it was fired when I take a picture, but the flash is fired.

I tried in TTL mode and normal mode.

When I use 2 V6 in RX and TX mode, everything works and I can control the power.

Is what I would like to accomplish, impossible or am I missing something?

PS: I also used the correct sequence to power-up flash-V6 and the camera.

  • Hello @FrankVerheyen

    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    What you described is possible if I got your idea right. If you want to control an on-camera flash power output you will need to press and hold the MENU button as you adjust the dial.

    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) but 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.
