Cross-brand Remote Power Control

Cross-brand wireless manual power control with HSS support of Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Pentax flashes. Instant adjustment of a single group and ratio power adjustment by one quick swipe of the rotary dial.

Cross-brand Remote Zoom Control

Cross-brand wireless manual zoom control of Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Pentax flashes.

Normal HSS

Supports shutter speed up to 1/8000s.

Power Sync

Boosts flash contribution above x-sync shutter speed, perfect for extreme conditions where Normal HSS is not powerful enough.

AF-assist

See in the dark! AF-assist LED light will switch on automatically on both TX and RX units to help camera auto-focus.

Multi-master

Ability to work with more than one camera simultaneously, great for multiple photographers in live events and off-camera flash workshops.

Group Sequence

Create cut-out masks easily where the V6 II triggers off-camera flash groups in sequence: AB-CD and A-B-C-D.

Sports Shutter

- Capture the same action simultaneously from multiple angles on remote cameras by shooting on the main camera.

- Perfect for live events such as concerts and field sports.

TTL Pass-through

Dual hot shoe design allows automatic exposures for on-camera fill flash.

Lo Power

Ability to dive below the standard 1/128 for extreme short flash duration.


Remote Shutter Release

Connect a shutter cable to the camera and use the V6 II as a remote shutter release.



Delay Timer

Create second-curtain sync effects by manually setting a delay on off-camera flash unit(s).



Wireless Range

Never miss a shot! Selectable Short and Long Range modes ensures consistent and reliable flash triggering in all shooting environments.


Relay Mode

Remotely release camera shutter and trigger off camera flash at the same time.


Fine Power Adjustment

Precise power level adjustments in 0.1EV increments.

Benchmark the light

(Absolute Power mode)

V6 II detects portable flashes nearby and set them on the same power scale.
