Thanks ClassA, u said that a V6 can pick up optical signal from my on-camera Pentax 540 (Metz can't be master in HSS) and transmit it to another V6

Sooooo, i just need to wait for the V6 to have an optical to radio solution !? (no need of a RF60). That's a very good news !

Best regards,

Novsky

Just to clarify that this optical->radio conversion works for triggering (including HSS) only.

The V6 will not fully preserve all optical signals and convert them to radio waves. The Akoatec AK-TTL do that but they need some bulky contraptions to accomplish this.

The Akoatec AK-TTL make more sense for the flash systems of Canon and Nikon that actually have some support for controlling multiple flash setups. When considering P-TTL, however, I feel that the V6 covers it very well with its ability to remote control the power of flashes and trigger them.
