No. Not using flucard. It is not intended for that use, it is very simplistic. The Pentax flash doesn't have wireless connectivity. It can be done via adaptors such as the cactus system but that's a whole other ballgame. Personally I hardly use flash at all, but there is a lot more information on this on various threads on this forum. The flash capabilities of this camera are the same as for other recent pentax DSLRs. Information on using them will pertain to the 645z also.

OK: with 1 flash is possible only via adaptors; But if i use 2 flashes (1 on camera) is it possible in wireless mode (no flucard)?

Thanks a lot
