A7RIII + Nikon flashes

Hi, I currently own two pieces of V6II as I was using fuji cameras recently, but I now switched to Sony.
I also own a Metz 64 AF-1 for Nikon and a Godox AD360II-N (for Nikon)
I'd like to know if there is any way to connect my new Sony A7RIII camera to those flashes and if I have to purchase one Cactus V6IIs for that purpose.
Will it have TTL and HSS?
Thanks in advance
Luis

  • Hi Luis,

    Yes, all you need to do is getting a V6 IIs, it was specially made for Sony:


    You will be able to trigger your Nikon flashes just like before with your Fuji camera. 

    Thanks!

    Hi again Antonio,
    I'll highly appreciate if you can give me a hand on setting up my gear, I just cann't get it to work properly, it does fire, but with very low light, shots are way underexposed.
    I remind the gear set:
    Sony A7RIII (v 1.01) + Metz 64 AF-1 (V1.8) + Cactus V6IIs (v1.1.003)+ Cactus V6II (v1.1.013)...
    besides, I got another V6II for my Godox Witstro AD360II-N (but this one is not in a hurry)
    Thank you very much in advance

  • @luismanibarro
    You must use the Firmware version SON.1.002 (or newer) on the V6IIS (S is for SONY) attached to your camera. This unit is intended to be used only with Sony cameras or flashes.
    Looks like the V6II attached to your Metz flash had the proper Multibrand firmware version (1.1.013).
    That will be solve your issues.

  • Hi @luismanibarro@lansa301 pretty much identified the cause of the problem.  You need the X-TTL firmware. 

    V6 IIs:  SON.1.002

    V6 II:  FUJ.1.002


    Hope this helps!


    PS:  if you could wait on the bigger power flash, we have something that you should be interested, probably around summer time... stay tuned!

    @Antonio
    I cannot wait, I cannot wait! tell me! tell me now! hahahaha just joking.
    I am going to patiently wait.
    I am going to have a kind of x-mas at mid-year...


  • I am going to patiently wait.


    The wait, hopefully, won't be too long :)

    Does it has something to do with my suggestion on our last conversation about hotshoes? ;)

    No if you are referring to a flash with Sony MI hot shoe mount. 

    Sorry to disappoint, it is something else.   :)
