K-70 and AF540

Can anyone tell me if the AF540 flash will work wirelessly with the K-70? If so, how do I do it? I know how to use it wirelessly with my K-30 but I have sent I to the repair shop to have the aperture block problem fixed..

I just moved up from a K30 to a K70. Both are great cams but unfortunately, the K70 no longer supports wireless flash. The only way to work with the K70 that I know of is to purchase a Cactus wireless trigger on camera.

JimC1101, Thanks for the information. That was my conclusion as well. I do have the Cactus wireless trigger and that has been the only way I could get it to work wireless. I have been able of course to use a cord.
