Hope someone can help with this.
I recently purchased some Cactus v5 Transceiver/Receiver set, having being told they would fire with many different types of flash units and camera's (including the Nissin that I have).
Most of my equipment is Nikon analogue. I have a D70 which I use for testing purposes.
I have a Nissin Di866 MKII which is a Canon fit.
The cacti are talking to each other, (green and orange lights) and the connection is definitely being fired from the camera side (with the natural connection as well as via a hotshoe extension).
But nothing seems to make the flash trigger. What mode does the flash have to be in? And is there a way to test this without firing the camera shutter?
I also tried with a sync cable between the cactus tx and the flash, but no joy.
I really hope someone can help.
(I did actually ask this question on the cactus community forums here: http://www.cactus-image.com/community/discussion/787/firing-nissin-di866-mkii-with-cactus-tx-rx#latest but I guess they are not as active as StackExchange).
Thanks in advance.
