Adorama R2 transmitter for Pentax

Does anyone know if the upcoming R2 transmitter will allow HSS with the Pentax line of cameras?

I have no idea if it works for any system. What an absolute mess of a product description.

Since it is a new product, it is unlikely anyone here has any experience. You could call Adorama and ask them or perhaps @Helen Oster; (Adorama Rep) will pop in on this thread.

You need a semicolon at the end for usernames with spaces FYI.

@Helen Oster; should get this

Cool! I was wondering how that was done. Thanks for the hint.

Seems an interesting product. I guess Flashpoint is an Adorama house brand?

If yes, it would be good if Adorama could make manuals for this transmitter and receiver available for download from the product page, so we could figure out how these triggers may work.

This looks to me like Godox X1 TTL transmitter but as long I am aware this was released only for Sony, Canon and Nikon... Best bet is to call Adorama as it might be a typo as those transmitters supporting fully TTL functions for other systems.

You seem 100% right.

But if Adorama have persuaded Godox to develop a P-TTL version, that would be excellent news. This Godox system looks very good.

Unfortunately I don't have the answer myself and the Flashpoint team are out until next Monday. I've left a message for them to contact me upon return, but it would be helpful if you could email the question to me directly: Helen@adorama.com, so I can't overlok coming back to you early next week.
thank you.

As per the web page, this item is still under development, therefore no information is available other than that which is posted on the product page.

Since the Nikon model supports iTTL, and the Canon model supports ETTL, it would be logical for the upcoming Pentax model to support P-TTL.

Pls keep us posted once the product is ready to ship!
