Pentax K5-IIS + Cactus V6 II+ RF60X , TTL does not work correctly.

Hello!
Cactus V6 II - firmware pen.a.001
RF60X - firmware A01
In ttl mode the shots come out very dark, although the flash fires.

  • Hi @AleksandrG

    Please verify if there's a good connection between the camera and the V6 II?

    Do the <Status Screen Check>  (unofficial name)

    With the V6 II mounted on camera hot shoe, adjust:

    - Shutter speed
    - Aperture
    - ISO
    - lens zoom (if applicable)

    You shall see numbers popping up on V6 II's display where the Status Screen shows the change in values as you make the adjustments.

    FYI, you can toggle this to show up or not in the Menu, under <CAMERA INFO>. 


    Thanks!

    shutter speed and aperture is not showing.
    when you change the focal length of the lens, the flash zoom does not change.
  • Please excuse my mistake, for Pentax, as shown on your V6 II, only two attributes changes from camera setting, that is:

    1. ISO
    2. Zoom

    I see that you have switched the Sync Mode to "P" - Power Sync. You can adjust the sync mode in Menu > Functions > Sync Mode.

    Please check and let me know if the above helps. 

    Thank you!

    Thanks your advice helped. Why the beep does not work in TTL RF60X mode?
  • @AleksandrG

    Are you referring to the BEEP sound after the capacitor is fully charged (recycled)?

    Scroll through the menu and check if you have turn the beep on.

    Thanks!

    Beep on. It does not work only in TTL mode.

    Got it! We were able to replicate this too. Will fix this on the next firmware update on RF60X / V6 II.  

    Thank you very much for reporting the issue.
