XT-1 with HHS AND TTL working at the same time

I have installed FUJ.1.002 on both of my V611 triggers.  I have the flashes working OFF camera and the TTL is working great.  They are also working in Manual and I am able to adjust the power just fine.

What ISN’T working is HHS.  I cannot fire the flashes higher than 180 - the flash synch speed of my XT-1.  If I try - I get the black band problem.  How do I get the triggers to recognize the HHS on my flashes - which I have turned on?  I understood that I should be able to get both TTL AND HHS to work with these triggers, but right now I only get TTL.

I did try that other firmware…..V1.1.013…and it would not even fire the flashes for me.  So I gave up on that firmware and went back to FUJ.1.002.  This is the firmware that seems to be the best so far.

Also - when I put the flash on top of the trigger on top of my camera - trying to use it ON camera with the TTL pass through feature working - it does not seem to work.  The flash fires, but very weakly and everything is under exposed.  What am I doing wrong here?

Thank you so much.


  • Just want to provide some feedback.  Ray Chan was SO helpful and showed me how to get both HHS AND TTL working at the same time for my off camera flashes.  Very helpful.
  • FYI @raychan is also here on the forum sometimes. 

    So I assume you got HSS working now on your X-T1?

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "NIK.A.001", "v.103", or "A06".

    TTL or HSS not working on Cactus V6 II and V6 IIs? Be sure to check hot shoe connectivity by doing the <CAMERA INFO> check.
