Yongnuo YN600RT?

Hi
Has anyone used the Yongnuo YN600RT with the new V6 II? what about in HSS?
I have the V6 version 1. They do work, but not very reliable. sometimes they fire sometimes they don't.
Thanks
Is the V6 Compatible with the X-T2? ( I have heard Fuji changed the flash protocol). I have a x-pro2 and that will get the same flash protocol I think.

  • Hi @Steven_nl

    We haven't tested the YN600RT but it should work. The V6 II should be able to detect it as a Canon and assign an AUTO profile. Or it should also work by manually selecing a similar GN profile such as the 568EX*.

    What flash profile did you use on the V6 RX unit?
    And is the flash is set to TTL mode?

    The original V6 is compatible with all cameras that uses a standard ISO hot shoe - unless you need to use TTL pass through, the V6 only uses the centre hot shoe pin for flash triggering signal.  I believe all Fujifilm cameras use the centre hot shoe pin for flash triggering so both X-T1 and X-Pro2 are compatible. 

    FYI both models are also compatible with the V6 II. At least as of today - when it's running on the current firmware - pre-EF-500X compatible firmware.

    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).

    Thans for your detailed response. I used the 568 profile for the V6. It does work, but sometimes the flash does not fire. Dificult especially outside when do no notice it. Flash set to ttl and powered on in the order as stated in the manual. The Canon 600 gives better results, but i want to have two seperate bags. 1 with my 5Dmkiii and one withe my x-pro2 + yongnuo ex600.

    I realise the v6II will not give me TTL. Not needed with of camera flash. HSS is important though. Both on a speedlight and it would be great if it would trigger (hss) a godox ad600 as well.
    There is a lot of discussion about the i40 no longer doing ttl on the xt2. And the x-pro2 will get similair firmware. But maybe it "only" changes TTL.
