Firing Nissin Di866 MKII with Cactus TX/RX
So, sorry to ask what must be a very basic question.
Most of my equipment is Nikon analogue. I have a D70 which I use for testing purposes.
I have a Nissin Di866 MKII which is a Canon fit.
The cacti are talking to each other, (green and orange lights) and the connection is definitely being fired from the camera side (with the natural connection as well as via a hotshoe extension).
But nothing seems to make the flash trigger. What mode does the flash have to be in? And is there a way to test this without firing the camera shutter?
I also tried with a sync cable between the cactus tx and the flash, but no joy.
I really hope someone can help.
