Some mis-firing issues
I have a set of 5 individual Cactus V6 triggers. All of them have the latest firmware (V 1.1.019). My wife and I shoot weddings, and during the reception we have been experiencing some really frustrating mis-firing mishaps.
Typically, during the dancing, she will shoot on one camera body, and I will shoot on two camera bodies (all three in Tx mode), and we set up two speedlights with a Cactus V6 on each in Rx mode.
We place one speedlight on group A and the other on group B and we ensure all five transreceivers are on the same channel.
Usually, the night starts fine and we are both able to fire off without problems for the first 30-45 minutes.
Then, suddenly, out of nowhere the transreceivers will stop communicating together, and they won't fire any longer. I checked to see if the batteries are dead, but no, all of the devices still have battery life left.
Also, something else that has happened several times is the Cactus will fire off the wrong group. So, for example, if I turn on only Group A on my Tx, sometimes both A and B will fire on my Rx receivers. Sometimes they will fire even if I turned both groups off on my Tx.
What is going on?
