DO NOT place V6 reverse on a HotShoe

Hello

I tested to use my set of V6 to remote release the camera (Pentax K3).

I used a 2x3,5mm-cinch cable delibered with a V5 duo set and a plug adaptor 3,5-->2,5mm at the camera. This way I found, that this cable combination is not long enough to place the V6 on the hot shoe at then same time (V6-connection left, cameraa-connection right).

This combination worked fine :)

Than I tried to put the V6 to the hot shoe in reverse direction. It clicked in in the contact/fixation  depressions on the half way and was blocked there. I was really concerned that it will stay there for ever before I managed to release it by a lot of force.

Lessons learned: DO NOT PUT V6 REVERSE TO YOUR CAMERA
