Cactus V6ii settings for HSS

I've just purchased a Cactus V6ii, Godox TT600 flash and XT32 trigger. I'm still wating for the trigger to arrive, but tested HSS with Cactus V5 in top if the V6ii with a V5 on the flash. All seemed to work fine.

Something I haven't thought about though, is the flash power effected by what output settings of the Cactus V6ii if it is merely being using for the HSS pass through option ???

I don't believe so .... In your case you won't have any remote control. This is determined by the capabilities' of the trigger system that relays the signal to the flash, in your case here that's the V5 system.

I didn't think so either. Also more referring to when I get the XT32 trigger, I'll have remote control of the flash. I was just testing the HSS function with the V5 as that's all I had to attached to the flash.

Check your firmware on the Cactus V6ii...the last two frimware updates 1.1.007 and 1.1.008 will NOT, repeat WILL NOT pass through they HSS signal to the trigger to the trigger mounted in the hot shoe of the V6ii. The solution is to drop back to firmware 1.1.006. Cactus is aware of the problem and will fix it in the next firmware update.

I had updated it after playing around with it, so gone back to 1.1.006. Thanks for the info.
