360FGZ variants

Hi all,

Recently, i purchased a used 360FGZ just for P-TTL wireless. And I'm realize this unit i recently bought has no "P-TTL wireless slave" menu, only A and M. SN is: 1036xxx.
I also found out, my current 360FGZ (purchased new at April 2007) has P-TTL, A, and M mode in wireless slave. SN is : 1048xxx.

So it looks like not only Sigma flash needs rechipped, but also Pentax does. Or is it only firmware upgrade at Pentax SC would be enough?

Sounds like your flash is in "Slave 2" mode.

You need to be in Slave 1 mode to have wireless P-TTL.

So to fix this - hold the light/format button for several seconds, wait for slave 2 to show up and then pressing the 'S' button to change the flash to slave 1.

Now you should have wireless P-TTL.

Slave two mode is when you want to the flash to act like a dumb flash - that is, like a flash that has an optical trigger attached to the hotshoe mount.

I hope this helps!

Hey,
Thanks a ton! This is great to know. Never knew there was a slave mode 2! Will be perfect for use with my studio strobes!

Thanks
