Hi,
I own A99II and HVL-F58AM & HVL-F60M.
I wanna control in WL the 58 by the 60 placed on the camera
the 58 will placed in a big umbrella.
What is the settings?
maybe could be better for the power , using the 60 into the umbrella? ( I own the adapters to use the 58 on the A99II

The 2 flash units are listed as having the same power at all zoom positions except at 105mm where the F60M gains a GN advantage of 2 but then you will probably not use the 105mm zoom position in a soft box. And the gain of Guide number by only a difference of 2 is so minimal you may not gain anything.

Both units have to be placed in their Custom Menu as operating in Ctrl 1 mode ( Ctrl + will then appear on the rear LCD when placed in WL mode). If you use Ctrl 2 (Ctrl appearing on the rear LCD) it may not work.

The F60M on the camera should be in Ctrl+ Control Mode
The F58AM placed in WL Remote Mode with Remote 2 appearing on the rear LCD
