Cactus V6ii or Xpro-P compatible with GRII/III?

I've been researching 20-28mm lenses of late, but the thought of getting a GRII or the new GRIII is also an attractive option seeing as it puts out a 28mm equivalent focal length. That way I also get an additional camera to use that can also serve different purposes etc.

What I would like to know however is if a Cactus V6ii or the Godox Xpro-P trigger will work at all in triggering flashes when stuck on a GRII or the upcoming GRIII?

Anyone know?


Cheers,

Bruce

Those controllers should work in Manual Mode on the GRII, and with P-TTL on the GRIII.

So just to clarify Clackers, the new GRIII, I essentially get all the same functionality with using a V6ii on the GRIII as I would if I had one attached to a K-1? Av mode for example and HSS support etc?

Read the GR III threads and see if you agree with my interpretation.

I'm a recent GR II owner, BTW.
