Setting up HSS with Canon 6D

Hiya,

I have a forest shoot tomorrow and would really like to use hss with off camera flash for this. (I usually only use this in the studio).  I have tried everything to get it set up but it just isn't working! Please could you advise how I go about doing this? Many thanks :)

    Sorry for the delayed in replying.

    Are you using the Cactus V6 II as a trigger? If so your RF60 needs to update to the latest firmware version.

    Thank you and I look forward to your updates.

    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.

    I have a cactus V6 and RF60, but it is not working the HSS.

    How i can do it?

    I need to use in sun day
  • The V6 does not support HSS and never will. It lacks the necessary hardware.

    The only options are workarounds. You can use
    1. optical triggering of a V6 transmitter (in conjunction with a system flash that supports HSS), or
    2. the "starter pistol approach" I once came up with.

    The only way is to get the V6 II.

    Or get a leaf shutter camera such as the Fujifilm X100, Sony RX1, Ricoh GR...
