Metz M400 Flash (version for Pentax/FW 1.1.011) with Cactus V6 II

Hello

The Metz M400 (and 26 AF-1) work only once when the Receiver is switched on. If I repeat off/on they are running once again.

Only way I got the M400 to work in a Cactus system was with a old V6 in Manual Mode (no power control)

  • We do not have a M400 for Pentax so we cannot test for you.

    Would it work if you choose one of the other Metz flash profile? Say a Metz 50 AF-1, or even the 64 AF-1?

    Thanks!

    Good idea! The 36AF-5 Profile works for the power setting - but not for zooming which is less anoying.

  • Thanks for reporting the remote zoom issue. I have forwarded to R&D but we do not have the M400 for Pentax so we may not be able to rectify this bug until we get one in our hands. Thank you for your understanding during this time.

    When the flash head is TILED, of course the zoom does not work.

    Try mounting the flash directly on camera hot shoe, tilt the flash head upward, and see if the zoom ever moves when you adjust lens zoom range.
