When I walked along the shore I noticed this interesting tree. Late afternoon light was nice and pointed out the structure of the stem. Structure seemed to continue waves flow. Black and White would be nice. So I made the photograph. In post decided it will be a

Cactus set to Relase New Firmware the Cactus V6ii for Pentax
Posted By acoufap

I think there‘s a misunderstanding. V6 uses the PTTL power signal to remotely but manually setting the flashes light emission. If a PTTL flash does understand analog TTL signals it can be learnd to work in the system by creating a dedicated V6 flash profile. Although a bit tricky I did it for my AF201FG. Some profiles are delivered by Cactus. I guess there isn‘t any significant communication between camera and the V6 units but fire. Unfortunately this system doesn‘t work with my Metz 52 AF-1 pentax version because it‘s fully digital. But it should work with the V6II. I don’t own these items so can’t test.

The V6II system seems to work digital having some real camera system dependent communication. In my understanding the „X firmware“ will especially extend by TTL operation mode and support manufacturer specific TTL HSS features of the flashes. That‘s why for each manufacturer a specific firmware extension is needed. Other systems than Pentax are already supported. The system allows mixing HSS supporting flash units of different manufacturers within such a cactus V6II setup. If there are also V6 units included within the setup they are only manually wireless controlled.

F28 2.8 vs d fa 28-105

Thanks for this interesting thread - good idea!

I don‘t own the F2.8/28 but the M2.8/28, M1.7/50 and DFAf3.5-5.6/28-105.

Until now I didn‘t think about a comparison of M2.8/28 against the DFA@28. But you convinced me to do so. :)

Since I appreciated shooting with my M1.7/50 the recent days I imediately captured a serie with ascending aperture from 2.8 respectively 3.5 to 22 @28. Subject was a book shelf one meter in front of the tripod mounted camera. The border area view covering books showing small letters. Natural light falling from behind the camera and right side.

My oberservations for this setup:

The M2.8/28 shows some significant astigmatism at the borders up to f5.6 - that means there‘s a slight double image yielding to an unsharp representation. The DFA shows this too. But it‘s less pronounced. Especially from f8 on I was really surprised how good and sharp the M2.8/28 held up against the DFA@28. But I guess the DFA works better if there‘s more direkt light into the lens.

So in the future for dedicated photo trips I‘ll bear in mind that I have a wide and fast option to go more lightweight using my K-1.

Quite right, as we often can observe - communication seems to be something very complex and multilayered. Sender, receiver and their interpretations are sometimes a mystery to me. :lol: Everybody comes from somewhere else and is characterized by his own experiences ... Although I own a great macro lens I generally like to find out what I can do with the gear I have and like to share it with others. Always appreciated if they like you benefit from my ideas and mention it - thanks!
