Canon Speedlite with Pentax 645Z

Greetings....

Is it possible to use the Canon Speedlite 430 EX flash unit with Pentax 645Z is any configuration whatsoever - auto, manual, off-the-camera, using external wireless flash triggers? I wish to use the Canon Speedlite 430 EX flash unit with Pentax 645Z during my travels in Europe and not for studio work.

Thanking you.

The Cactus V6II radio triggers support the Canon 430EX when using the standard "multi-brand" firmware variant. You'd get off-camera triggering, manual remote control over power levels and zoom settings, plus HSS.

I'm pretty sure the 430EX will work directly in the hot shoe also, but with purely manual power control only of course. I have used the Canon 580EX II on a Pentax DSLR many times with no problems.
