V6 II with Off Camera R6 stuck in TTL Flash mode with Fujifilm X-T2

Hi all,

I'm new to this setup, so pardon if this has been covered before.  I currently have a Cactus V6 II trigger with a Cactus RF60 Off camera flash. I've loaded the beta firmware that allows it to work with HSS, and I'm able to confirm that it works, however, I noticed that the X-T2 whenever I have the V6 II mounted, only gives me TTL or Off modes for flash. If I don't need HSS, and I'm in the studio, how do I switch to manual mode with this setup? Thoughts, and advice would greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Well, for Fujifilm, you need to manually switch ON and OFF the Forced HSS function on the V6 II - by pushing in the Adjustment Dial on the V6 II.

    By this, are you referring to the "TTL" icon showing on camera's LCD?

    That is showing when the camera detected a Fujifilm system flash device mounted on its hot shoe, which the V6 II tricked it to be one.

    But this has nothing to do with TTL itself, nor are there any TTL being transmitted wireless.

    Hope this helps!

    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", "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) and not by X-TTL firmware versions: PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet. 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A01 and A02 currently ONLY works with PEN.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.

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware version 205 or later!

    Metz M400 (for Fujifilm) is now supported on the Cactus V6 II (HSS and TTL).
