V6 II and V5

Hi,

I tried using V6 ii to trigger my V5 and it did not work.
V 5 to trigger V6 II neither

Thanks

  • Hi @Dardi,

    I am guessing you are running X-TTL firmware on the V6 II?

    The V6 II (TX) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) can trigger a V5 (RX), but not the other way around.

    We will revise our website compatibility note to mention about the required matching firmware on the V6 II.

    Thanks!

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "NIK.A.001", "v.103", or "A06".

    TTL or HSS not working on Cactus V6 II and V6 IIs? Be sure to check hot shoe connectivity by doing the <CAMERA INFO> check.

  • V6 II running on firmware v. PEN.A.001 
    Does not work either after reset


  • V6 II running on firmware v. PEN.A.001 
    Does not work either after reset


    Yes, unfortunately that is to be expected, as only the multi-brand firmware variant for the V6II (e.g., V1.1.013) is compatible with the V5.

    PEN.A.001 is not compatible with the V5 and my understanding is that no future PEN.A. firmware version ever will restore compatibility to the V5.
