NOTE: This listing is for ONE (1) Cactus V6 II ONLY. You need a minimum of two (2) V6 II units: one V6 II as a Transmitter and a second V6 II as a Receiver to trigger and remote power and zoom control of one (1) portable flash unless you have a Cactus RF60 series flash which has a built-in transceiver.

* With the exception of Pentax system flashes due to special timing requirements so it must be paired with a Pentax camera in order to support HSS.

Notes on compatibility:

  • Cactus V6 II is not compatible with Cactus V6 on firmware version 1.1xxx. Update to the latest firmware (version 2.1.001) on the V6 and the V6 II will be backward-compatible under camera’s x-sync speed;
  • Cactus V6 (RX) does not support Normal HSS when triggered by the V6 II;
  • Cactus V6 (RX) supports Power Sync by updating to the latest firmware (version 2.1.001) when triggered by the V6 II;
  • Cactus RF60 (RX) supports Normal HSS and Power Sync by updating to new firmware (version 200 and onwards) when triggered by the V6 II;
  • Cactus V6 II does not work with any other flash trigger model including Cactus V4, V2s or V2;
  • Cactus V6 II does not transmit TTL information wirelessly;
  • Cactus V6 II is not compatible with flashes or strobes with reversed polarity connectors;
  • Cactus V6 II is compatible with practically all cameras that come with either (1) a standard ISO hot shoe, or (2) a female sync port connection;
  • Cactus V6 II is compatible with the Wireless Flash Transceiver V5 and Laser Trigger LV5 for basic flash triggering and shutter release when the V6 II is installed with Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013). (revised April 3, 2018)
