Canon EOS RP HSS issues.

[ Edited ]

Hello Canon users,

Im using RP and found some issues with HSS when using off camera flash. Using RP and Cactus v6II. even with the newest firmware im having banding issues.

Cactus support said this: ,,Canon have changed their hardware requirement of the hot shoe pins since EOS RP. The hardware requirement, unfortunately, is not supported by the V6 II. The differences between Canon spec and the Cactus spec makes the recognition of the Canon signal very intermittent.''

Anyone else having hss banding issues when using off camera flash?
Anyone use triggers and do not have hss banding issues and what triggers is that?)

 

So im searching not for flashes, but for studio strobes and triggers who can do HSS without banding

Get a refund.  Get a Canon Speedlite.

Re: Canon EOS RP HSS issues.

Firmware 1.2.0 is supposed to fix this problem.  Are you sure you've got this latest firmware?

If you did, just don't use this flash.  I'd recommend using Canon equipment.  The only two non-Canon flash worth using are Yongnuo and Godox.

Yes i updated firmware to 1.2.0.
But as i said flash/trigger manufacturers CACTUS, said, that :  ,,Canon have changed their hardware requirement of the hot shoe pins since EOS RP. The hardware requirement, unfortunately, is not supported by the V6 II. The differences between Canon spec and the Cactus spec makes the recognition of the Canon signal very intermittent.''
