Does it work with Yongnuo 560 IV flash guns

Does the new Cactus V6 II trigger the Yongnuo 560 IV for HSS? The compatibility list is not up to date, so I was wondering whether something has changed. I have Yongnuo flashes and I was wondering whether I can use them manually in HSS, if I buy a Cactus V6 II transmitter. 


  • I'm curious..... when did the YN 560 mk4 become HSS capable? Are you sure????
  • Yes, I am curious too.

    If the YN560 IV has HSS natively on board the flash then it should work off-camera too with the V6 II.

    But if the flash does not have such a function, then certainly the Cactus V6 II could not squeeze HSS out from nothing.

    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.

    Generally speaking, YN560 IV does not support HSS, however, by using Cactus V6 II on Fuji X camera, there is a Force HSS option. 
    By putting YN560TX on top of V6II, I’m able to force YN560TX to trigger YN560IV for HSS upto 1/4000 on Fuji X-T1.  This only works for YN560IV, it does not work on YN660. So if you have YN560TX & YN560IV, you may take a try.
  • The YN560 IV has a built-in YN560-TX which Supports Wireless Master Function.  So if a 560 iv were mounted directly to the camera hot shoe, could it be made to both fire the trigger to other 560 iv off camera flashes, and in some manner set itself to receive the signal to flash using the forced HSS option?  So it would be in some sort of dual mode to send and receive it's own signal to fire.

    Hey, can you tell me what the setup to do this? I have the 560TX trigger and 2 x YN560IV that you mentioned in your comment. If I get the Cactus V6II trigger then I can do ocf hss? Thanks
