Cactus V6 II Wireless Transceiver

Wireless Cross-Brand TTL & High-speed Sync

The Cactus V6 II is the world's first wireless flash trigger that supports cross-brand TTL, cross-brand High-speed Sync (HSS), and can remote control power output and zoom angle of Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax and Sigma system flashes all at the same time (Sony requires V6 IIS, sold separately).

Apart From cross-brand TTL, the Cactus V6 II also features two High-Speed Sync modes: Normal HSS which supports shutter speed up to 1/8000s; and Power Sync boosts flash contribution above camera's x-sync speed, perfect for extreme conditions where Normal HSS is not powerful enough.

CROSS BRAND
THE V6 II WORKS ACROSS DIFFERENT CAMERA AND FLASH SYSTEMS WITH HSS SUPPORT

Key Features:

Cross-brand HSS

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.

REMOTE POWER CONTROL REMOTE ZOOM CONTROL

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.

NORMAL HSS POWER SYNC

AF-Assist:
The V6 II now has an automatic LED AF-assist light that makes autofocusing in dark environments possible -- even in pitch black! Besides the camera-mounted V6 II, off-camera units will also activate the AF-assist light, which helps focusing even when camera is far from the subject.

Highly Intelligent:
V6 II can now auto-detect the on-camera portable flashes at device start-up by selecting the system which the flash belongs to and assigning an Auto Flash Profile. Moreover, it now works with previously unsupported digital-only TTL flash models on the V6 and expands its compatibility. Similarly, the V6 II will auto-detect the camera and selects the system accordingly. This simple plug-and-play makes the setting up extremely quick and easy that both amateurs and professionals appreciate.

Flash Profile Customization:
Users may still manually choose from more than 60 popular flash models from Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Olympus, Panasonic, Metz, Nissin, etc. should they wish to. And for those who demands the utmost accurate power output they may adjust each power level using the Cactus Profile Editor, a computer-installed software that allows the saving of up to 10 personalized flash profiles.

Remote Power and Zoom Control:
Besides remote power control, remote zoom control is now available to all compatible TTL flashes, which was only available on Cactus RF60 series Wireless Flash before. This will give photographers much quicker controls by swapping controls of power and zoom settings directly on the V6 II.

Multi-master:
The V6 II now allows multiple photographers to trigger off-camera flashes at the same time. Not only is this great for wedding and events, it is also perfect for running photography 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.

MULTI-MASTER GROUP SEQUENCE

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.

TTL PASS-THROUGH LO POWER

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 units.

REMOTE SHUTTER RELEASE DELAY TIMER

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.

WIRELESS RANGE RELAY MODE

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.

TTL without Boundaries

The X-TTL System:
Cactus V6 II / IIs X-TTL firmware is compatible with Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Sigma and Sony camera and flash system.

Cross-Brand Wireless TTL:
The X-TTL firmware gives photographers unprecedented flexibility. The need for matching flashes with the same camera system for on and off-camera TTL flash photography is over -- TTL without boundaries.

On-camera Flash with TTL:
Cactus V6 II works with an on-camera fill flash with cross-brand TTL capability.

Wireless Operation:
Simply press one of the group buttons to cycle the group through automatic-TTL mode, manual mode and OFF.

ON-CAMERA FLASH WITH TTL WIRELESS OPERATION

Wireless Multi:
Let your creativity flow even in a wireless flash setup. The X-TTL firmware supports wireless Multi flash operation.

Rear Curtain Sync:
Flash is fired just before shutter closing. The X-TTL firmware supports rear curtain sync automatically.

Flash power lock:
Lock flash power output after a desired TTL exposure is achieved. Perfect for consistency in repeat shooting. (Tip: press and hold the OK button to activate)

Flash compensate:
Store a desired flash exposure that will automatically adjust in response to changes in camera ISO, aperture and shutter speed.
