2 suggestions - flash quench signal over X-sync port and built-in timer(s)

edited July 2015 in V6 Suggestions
Suggestion 1: I'm not sure if the hardware supports this, but it would be useful to provide a flash quench signal over the X-sync port, e.g. for connecting to Nikon 3-pin TTL connectors or for similar DIY hobbyist use in a less bulky fashion than going through the hot shoe. 

Suggestion 2: I envision being able to set timers (e.g. hour, minute, second...) for trigger delays, time lapse sequences, and durations for long exposures- to provide more control than a simple hold-the-button-down bulb operation. 

Hope these can be considered- the V6 is already a swiss army tool of useful functions and I'm curious to see what other tricks it's capable of!

  • Thanks @Cellulosic for your comments. I have forwarded them to our R&D team.

    I agree on the note that V6 is already a swiss army knife, so hopefully they will be convinced about the features you mentioned, such as the Timer. Who else would want one?

    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.
