Yongnuo 600EX-RT

edited June 2016 in V6 Compatibility
Mixed bag. It does work when you set it to the Yongnuo 568EX profile (Canon 600EX profile does not work). But it is inconsistent.

When you change flash power sometimes it doens't flash at all, then sometimes it does. It does pick up the change in power setting. It gets beter when you stick to a certain power setting, but not 100%. Pitty.

The Canon 600EX RT seems to function without problems.

  • Hello @Steven_nl

    Did you meant to type the Yongnuo 568EX* flash profile?

    Previous another user reported the YN600EX-RT works on the 568EX* profile.

    Thanks for reporting.

    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.

    Hi Antonio. Sorry! yeah. I meant the 568EX profile. I must confess I reported earlier that it does work. I found out it does not work consistent unfortunatly. Hard to pinpoint when it works and when it doesn't. Changing the power does have a negative impact. Somtimes it works without problems, sometimes the flash is hestitant to fire. 

    In the manual it is stated that the flash has to be switched on first, then the V6. Then the profile has to be selected. OK. But I guess you don't need te reselect the same profile every time right?

  • No, the profile should stay after you selected it.

    TBH I am not sure how YN set TTL on their units. Whatever it is, it is different than that on Canon flash. So I think it would be difficult for the V6 to properly communicate with it.

    FYI we will soon release new V6 which will have much better compatibility with pure-digital TTL flash. Where as the V6 mainly talks in analogue language, so at the moment is a bit of a stretch for the V6.
