TTL Passthrough doesn't work. HSS-sympathy mode does not work.
I just upgraded the firmware and the behavior, if anything, has gone from bad to worse.
I bought a pair of RF60 & V60. (two of each item)
Initially only one of the V60 would allow TTL passthrough -- and then only intermittently and sometimes scrambled the cameras's shutter speed above the sync speed. (I am using Pentax K3 with AF540-FGZ on the hotshoe, and the AF540 profile on the V60). After the firmware upgrade, neither unit allows TTL passthrough.
I even have the V60 TX on the camera (also tried with the AF540 on the hotshoe).
I then have a second V60 RX with another AF540 in the hotshoe.
The remote flash does not fire. It sounds like the TTL profile will only fire another TTL flash in the remote hotshoe.
Correct? So the RF60 is useless for actual TTL, assuming the feature worked in the first place.
The documentation on TTL usage with the V60 is really confusing.
Do I need the AF540 or PTTl flash on the hotshoe or does the profile handle all that on its own?
Regardless, I cannot get the remote RF60 to flash in any situation or configuration when the camera is above the sync speed. This is regardless of using the V60 (with or without the flash in the hotshoe).
Even with only the AF540 in the cameras hotshoe (no V60 involved), there is no delay (50ms - 120ms) that allows HSS sympathy mode to fire the RF60.
The manual is so very ambiguous I cannot make heads or tails of what is supposed to work or how.
It is possible I have a bunch of bad hardware, but I doubt it.
I am pretty sure I am just doing something "wrong".
Any help? :-)
