  • Hello @shutter10

    Does your D-lite RX4 supports HSS natively?
    Do you need Elinchrom's own transmitter to activate HSS?

    Unfortunately we don't have any Elicnhrom gear to test it out for you, but the general rule is, if you connect the V6 II RX unit to the studio strobe (Elinchrom unit) via sync cable, the V6 II will detect it as a manual flash, and the flash duration needs to be 1/100s or longer at t0.1.

    I 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).

  • The Elinchrom D-lite RX4 has a long flash duration and there is no need to switch anything on it to work with PowerSync on the V6II. I use the previous D-lite 4IT version with the V6II and Olympus OMD cameras at above x sync speeds with great success.

    I recently had a chance to use the Elinchrom HS Skyport for Oly / Pan instead of the V6II. Once again, the results were excellent wth the D-lite 4. But I would have to say that the V6II and Skyport HS worked equally well. Win win.
  • Thank you so much Antonio and C88, I will try with Powersync, after that will share my results.
