Cactus releases firmware to add TTL control for Canon flashes

Chinese flash system manufacturer Cactus has released new firmware for its V6 II Transceiver that will allow it to wirelessly communicate TTL information between a Canon or Cactus flash and a Canon camera.

The X-TTL update makes it possible to trigger Canon flashes and retain full TTL control with that flash either on or off camera.

Canon flashes can be used on their own or in groups of Cactus models, while HSS and remote power controls are also possible. The same V6 II transceiver can be used with Nikon, Pentax, Panasonic, Olympus, Sony, Sigma and Fujifilm systems, but with Canon systems only manual power and zoom controls are possible.

The firmware is free to download and can be accessed on the Cactus website. A special X-TTL microsite has more details.
