V6 ii and Fujifilm
Hi, I just received my units and they work perfectly on my Fujifilm X-Pro 2. I tried HSS and Hypersync with both an RF60 with the latest FW update and a Nikon SB900 (attached to a V6 ii - receiver).
Yet, I have a couple of questions:
1) the manual says on page 59 "Fujifilm cameras before the X-Pro 2 do not support automatic high speed sync. However, the V6 II offers a workaround to support normal HSS and Power Sync with Fujifilm cameras". The way this is phrased makes me think that the X-Pro 2 DOES support automatic HSS, yet in order to get Normal HSS to work, I have to depress the dial to enter "Forced HSS On'... So what exactly is then the difference in behaviour of an X-Pro 2 versus an X-T1 with regards to the V6 ii's behaviour?
2) will it work in Normal HSS with the Godox AD360 flashes? These flashes are very powerful yet they have a hotshoe. If it does work, this would compensate nicely for the power loss that HSS entails.
3) I have tried the V6 ii in power sync mode with 3 bigger strobes: the Godox AD600, the Jinbei HD600 IV and the Cononmk i6 EX Leopard. I could get none of them to work in power sync beyond 1/250th. The manual says on page 14 that it will only work with flashes that have a full power flash duration of longer (I guess that means: slower) than 1/100th of a second. I don't think that any of these flashes have such a slow flash duration, but I wonder which flashes do nowadays. Also, the flash duration of a Nikon SB900 or an RF60 is probably also faster than 1/100th, so why is it not working on these big flashes while it is working on the smaller ones?
Thanks for your insights. Apart from these questions, I absolutely love the system. Glad to have to use my ND filters a lot less, now...
