Olympus M1 and Nissin i40

edited December 2016 in V6 II Compatibility
Hi,
I have Olympus OM-D E M1 + 2 Nissin i40 flashes. They work fine in RC TTL (using the small FM-LM2 flash as a trigger), also in HSS,  except in bright sunlight, for instance.
Therefore I need a radio- triggered system. I also need  TTL and HSS, and control of flash modes from the camera.
Now, would this system work as I wish: two Cactus V6 II transceivers, with Nissin i40 on top of them + one Cactus V6 II on the camera for triggering and control. Maybe the spring from the camera's hot shoe must be removed.

  • Hello @snevalai,
    ... I also need  TTL and HSS, and control of flash modes from the camera.


    The V6 II does not support wireless TTL. So you only get:
    1. Wireless HSS
    2. Wireless manual control of flash power and zoom level.
    We haven't tested the an i40 for Olympus so we cannot be sure that it's compatible, however likely it would work considering it runs on digital TTL protocols, which is what the V6 II communicates in.

    Please let us know if you have other questions.

    Thank you.

    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.
