Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. In the Gadget Guide of the October/November 2014 issue of Photo Life, I wrote that the Cactus V6 sends TTL information to external flash units through radio waves….which is false. The only moment where the Cactus V6 transmits TTL information, meaning that the camera stays in full control of the flash exposure, is when the Cactus V6 is attached to the camera body and a compatible flash is attached to the Cactus V6. My apologies to anyone who, after reading my nonsense, invested in the Cactus V6, believing they had found the Holy Grail of the enthusiast studio, as I had believed it to be.
