Remote 3sec Cactus Bug?

So I was practising some lighting shots yesterday with a two flash set up and came across what I believe to be a bug. I had the following set up;

K-1+V6ii(Tx)
RF60x
V6ii(Rx)+AF360FGZII

If I fired the shot in regular shooting mode (single frame) the flashes worked and all is good. If I fired the shot in Remote mode without a 3sec timer delay, all good, if I fired the shot Remote mode with 3sec timer then only the RF60x flash would fire, the V6ii(rx) with the AF360FGZII would not fire. It fired I think it's preflash but not the main flash. Tested numerous times, for some reason adding the 3sec option on the Remote shooting mode meant that it wouldn't fire both flashes, just the rf60x.

Manual Mode in camera, Manual mode or TTL on the v6ii made no difference I'm sure. As I said any other shooting mode it would work, just not with the 3 sec timer...

  • Thank you for the report.

    May I know which firmware you are using in the V6 II and the RF60X. I remembers we had a bug fix about your mentioned issue. The firmware that I suggest is,

    RF60X : A.08
    V6 II X-TTL for PENTAX: PEN.A.005

    All the best

    Thanks I'll try that update as that looks more recent, I think from memory I'm on PEN.A.005 and something different for the RF60x. Will update and report back.

    I think I had the same problem...

    K-1+V6ii(Tx) (PEN.A.005)
    RF60x (A.08)
    V6ii(Rx)+AF540 FGZ
    Two flashes fired at the same moment at the beginning but later one of them started delayed (RF60X). I dont know the exact cause but maybe it's because I used delayed shutter...

    So how can I solve this problem?
  • Please make a factory reset to both the V6 II and the RF60X and try again. Let us know if it works.
  • recently tried 2sec delay via IR remote and the flash fired at first press then the shutter did its thing alone after the 2sec delay.....
    v6ii latest FW (pen)...pentax K-3ii....pentax af360fgz flash.....no issue with no delay via IR remote
