Pentax AF360/540FGZII status

Hello. Most recent Pentax flashes weren't supported by V6. There was some talk that it's in the works. What's the current status? Is Cactus still working on this, or has the issue been dropped? What's Pentax stance on that matter?


  • Hello @Nadir, thanks for your post!

    Despite the newer models, AF360FGZII and AF540FGZII, are not listed we found out that you may actually use the flash profliles of the older models and do remote power control! 

    We will have to do some calibrations and the new profiles should be available on the next firmware update. But in the meantime you may start using them with the existing profiles as their GNs are the same - both at 36 and 54 respectively, so the power adjustment should be relatively similar.

    Thank you!
