Able to support numerous types of speedlights and flashes, the Cactus Wireless Flash Transceiver V6 IIS is a versatile and capable flash trigger that offers added functionality to make remote flash work easier. This model is only for Sony flash systems with ease and uses 2.4 GHz radio communication to trigger other units from up to 100 m away. The main advantage of the V6 II is high-speed sync, of which two modes are offered. A normal setting uses a protocol depending on the camera system involved whereas the Power Sync can boost the flash for moments when Normal HSS is not powerful enough.

Note: For compatibility please see the specification tab or contact our sales team.


Users will be able to set up flashes in one of sixteen channels or three groups. Also, it has a Multi-Master setting that allows multiple shooters to trigger the same flashes, useful for demonstrations or events with a second shooter. By using flash profiles to register specific speedlights, the V6 II gains a few capabilities, such as an Absolute Power Mode, which calculates the equivalent power settings between multiple flashes. Additionally, it has a TTL pass-through hot shoe on the top and offers a 3.5mm sync terminal for plugging into strobes and other lights.

  • 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)

  • Cactus V6 II is compatible with the Olympus O-MD E-M1. However, some copies of the E-M1 come with a thicker-than-usual metal hot shoe spring plate which has to be removed when working with the V6 II.
  • Cactus V6 II is compatible with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8. However, due to special timing requirements by the camera it only supports HSS up to 1/4,000s. (Updated: September 1, 2016)
  • Cactus V6 II X-TTL firmware supports RF60 and RF60X. However, due to special timing requirements by Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 and G85, a white banding may show on the picture from shutter speed 1/250s to 1/500s when aperture is below F5.6
