Pentax k5, Yongnuo YN560II and second curtain sync

Posted 09/04/2014 - 16:25 Link
Just got Yongnuo YN560II speedlite and I'm trying to figure out how can I use it in second (rear) curtain sync mode on my Pentax k5. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be possible. Is that true or am I missing something?

Unfortunately, for second-curtain sync (and HSS) one needs a P-TLL flash.

The Cactus RF60 has a delay feature with which you can emulate second-curtain sync. But that requires manual input of a delay that depends on the shutter speed.

Thanks. Great review there and lots of general info I didn't know before.
