  • Thanks Antonio, I guessed I needed a second V6ii to trigger
  • No problem. :)

    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.

  • I have an Olympus EM 1, one Oly FL900 R flash, two V6 II (for transmitter from camera and receiver for the FL900R) plus two Cactus V60X flashes, hoping to work multi flash off camera, using TTL and HSS as advertised. Both tx and RC have been set to the same channel, radio, etc. as well as the Cactus flashes. The Olympus flash was detected by the V6 II.
    After all this purchase, hours watching YouTube tutorial videos on Cactus system and then hours experimenting...NOTHING WORKS! Neither triggering the Tc from the camera nor pressing the test button on the Tc. Nothing works and the more I look, the more confusedI am.
    Why Cactus imaging does not have its own tech support and understandable tutorials?
    I am frustrated and thinking on selling all my Cactuses and getting Godox.
  • Let's try the locate the problem first.

    Check if the TX and RX alone can communicate with each other: Pressing the test button on the TX should trigger the status LED of the RX to flash in Green (if you full pressed the test button), or Orange (if you half pressed the test button). Does the LED on the RX show up?
  • 让我们先尝试找出问题所在。

    检查TX和RX是否可以单独通讯:按下TX上的测试按钮应触发RX的状态LED闪烁绿色(如果完全按下测试按钮)或橙色(如果按下一半,测试按钮)。RX上的LED是否显示?

    当我按下TX测试钮时,RX没有反应。这个怎么办?谢谢
