Timing off with Fuji Xt1 and Godox v860C
Picked up a pair of Cactus v6 mkII today.
Setup was pretty simple, manually set the TX to Fuji, set the RX to Canon -> 860v.
All was working fine, using Forced HSS, I was able to shoot in HSS mode. Every once in a while at 1/4000 I would get a slight gradient. I realized I hadn' done the "Learn HSS" timing step. Once I did that, HSS won't work at all. Basically I fire the camera in Forced HSS mode and the flash fires ~.5 seconds after the picture is taken and of course the frame is black.
Remember to turn ON the Forced HSS by pushing in on the rotary dial. You need to turn it OFF when shutter speed is below x-sync, and turn it ON again when it is above x-sync.
Hope this helps! Thank you.
But actually both the V860C and AD360ii are compatible with the V6 II - they can be auto-detected too for remote power control, remote zoom control, and high-speed sync modes. However the AD360i is a bit weird - you have to set to M mode in order to work, instead of TTL.
Cactus V6 II does not work with any other flash trigger model (or wireless flash with built-in RF) including Cactus V4, V2s or V2.
They are restocked now at BH, in case you haven't checked already.
Yes, just ordered a couple, thanks!
