V6 in hand to change settings of the V6 on the camera?

Is it possible to use a V6 that I keep in a pocket to change the power settings of the V6 in Transit Mode connected to the the camera. That would be very helpful. A lot of times my camera is up high and I can't see the screen. I shoot home interiors and it would also be helpful to change the power output with a V6 when I am walking in the scene.



    Yes for remote controlling the power output of a compatible TTL system flash mounted on another V6.

    Here, I found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KH9skauGgZc

    You will need:
    3 x Cactus V6
    1 x shutter cable

    And enable the Relay Mode.

    More information on setting up the Relay Mode on P.51 of the PDF User Manual.

    Hope this helps!

    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.
