Yes it will. But do some research to see if it's your cup of tea. I'd buy it in a heartbeat if Adorama shipped USPS and the Canadian dollar didn't suck right now

I've read the reviews and was about to get one, but based on your comment if research to see if it's your cup of tea, am I missing something as to a downside of this flash? I realize it is just ttl, not P-ttl, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but is there something else negative that I should be aware of?

If You are familiar with flash photography I'd say it is a very good choice. If you are in need of a simpler flash system. Metz or Pentax flash interface with the camera with no setup or fiddling.

I'm not afraid to learn a new setup or system. I do have one other question about the V6, though. Can I put the v6 on my k3 hot shoe, then my af360 on top of the v6 in order to use both flashes?

Yes, it works that way, too. The RF60 can be both a Master flash (controlling other V6 or RF60's) or a Slave unit. In fact, if your AF-360 isn't the latest "II" version, there is a setting built into the V6 to control its power remotely from the back of the RF60.

Sweet. Not that I need to spend more money on this, but prom and pageant season is coming up and my sister's friends liked the pics I took of her, so I might can make a return on investment with it.

Thanks for the answers!

If I'm not mistaken, I don't believe this flash does TTL either. It has no automatic power settings of any kind.

If you're using multiple flashes, in a static location, you're better off using them in manual mode anyways. (p)-ttl for on camera run and gun type shooting.

Even the latest "II" version can be power-controlled with a V6 receiver (running the latest firmware version).

No problem, glad I could be of help. I ordered a bundle to go with my two RF60 flashes and my Cactus V5s that I use to trigger my 4 Youngnuo 560 II.

Adorama has the same deal on Ebay: Cactus RF60 Wireless Flash with Wireless Wrls Flash Transceiver V6 Single | eBay
