Comapatibility cactus and Olympus em-1

Hi Guys, I have a Olympus em-1, and a jinbei hd600v on the way to me, I am looking for a compatabile trigger system to fire the Jinbei hss up to 1/8000, it does come with a trigger how ever it does not do hss, this would be using it in fully manual also.
 Many thanks for any info.

  • Hello Alan,

    Natively it is not possible.

    But check out this trick, also done on an OM-D E-M5. You will need to mount an Olympus TTL flash on V6 TX's hot shoe.

    It may also work with your Jinbei strobe setup.

    Thank you and keep us posted!

    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).

    With the upcoming V6 Mk II in a few months, will the setup be identical except you wouldn't need to mount the Olympus TTL flash on the V6 TX hot shoe? 

    i.e. Camera with V6 (Mark II) mounted in TX mode --> HSS signal --> V6 (Mark II) in RX mode with HSS capable flash mounted
  • @japadog, in a nutshell, yes. ;)
