Users Tested: Flash models supported by predefined profiles

edited March 2016 in V6 Compatibility
Further to the original post, below let's consolidate all the flash models (runs solely on digital TTL, if analogue TTL is available then the flash can likely be learned) that were tested by fellow V6 users to be supported by choosing a digital TTL flash profile, such as:
  • Canon 320EX
  • Nikon SB-700
  • Panasonic FL500.
Reminder: if you flash is (1) not listed as compatible and (2) cannot be learned using the flash profile learning, then it's likely a digital-only TTL flash. In that case, try selecting a digtal flash profile to see if remote power control works.

So below are the models reported so far. Post any that I may have missed.

Nikon system flashes:
Nikon SB-400  (profile used: SB-700)
Nikon SB-500  (profile used: SB-600)
Neewer VK750II  (profile used: SB-700)
Yongnuo YN568EX  (profile used: SB-700)

Canon system flashes:
Canon 430EXIII-RT  (profile used: 320EX)
Yongnuo YN600EX-RT  (profile used: YN568EX)

Panasonic system flashes:
Metz 50 AF-1  (profile used: FL500)


Please feel free to add your own findings below and I will update the list.

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", "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.

  • Antonio,

    Will the Yongnuo YN568EX II work on the SB-700 profile for Nikon?

    Will the Yongnuo YN568EX II work on the SB-700 profile for Nikon?
    Sorry we don't have one to test so we can't be sure.

  • Hello, just for everyone's awareness:

    Flashpoint Zoom Nikon Li-On (Nikon model) will work with the Cactus V6 by selecting the SB-900 and the SB-910 modes.
  • ...by selecting the SB-900 and the SB-910 modes.
    That should only applies to older firmware on the V6 II.

    The latest 1.1.004 should have fixed this bug already (Nikon used instead of manual flash profile).

    Thanks for sharing @MichelSauret :)
