to all SIGMA flashgun users - demand support for 610 and 140

i want to make a call to all SIGMA flashgun users to demand support from Cactus for the most common Sigma flashes... like 610/610Super and 140 Ringflash.

Those flashes are both so powerful and capable, i dont want to sell any of them.

AND!:
There could be more predefined profiles for those Sigma Flashes for each System...

C'mon people and join. Lets see some "+1" here.
thank you.

  • Hey @patarok, what camera system are you using?

    FYI we tested SIGMA's Canon versions, EF-610 DG ST and DG SUPER, it seems that their TTL protocols are missing some information so they do not function normally as other Canon flashes.

    Not sure about the 140 RIng flash though as we don't have one to try.

    If you haven't already, maybe you cross-post link to this post on other forums that talks about SIGMA to draw more people's attention. :)

    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 am using the PENTAX camera system... I rent 645, own APS-C and plan to buy the successor of the K-1.(if its worth it)
    The Sigma flashes are also P-TTL...
    I already have a small studio and it would be cool if, i wouldnt have to manually adjust this sigma flash i use instead of a jinbei studio fl.(because it almost brings the same power as a 400Ws studio flash) EVERY TIME...
    I use Pentax flashes for background and striplight but the big octabox needs big power...
    So i am bent to use the Sigmas(i have 2 of them) as replacement for big studiolights because they are more affordable and more portable than 2 big 400Ws lights, that cost 2-3 times as much...
    Thats the reason why i bought the Cactus V6 transceivers in first place...
    Are there any experiences on compatibility of the 64 AF-1 and 76 AF-1 PENTAX versions from Metz with either Cactus V6 or Cactus V6II? How is it with the new Canon and Nikon SIGMA 630 DG Super?

  • We don't have any SIGMA branded flashes that runs on P-TTL, so we could not verify for you.

    However we do have a few Metz P-TTL units that works with the Cactus V6 II. I think it's better to go with the newer V6 II instead of the original V6. As most (if not all) recently released flash models run purely on digital TTL protocols, namely, 44 AF-1, 50 AF-1 and 64 AF-1.

    A quick note is that, V6 II's auto-detect do not work on Metz flashes, you'll need to manually choose PENTAX for the flash system and you are good to go.
