Z6ii with external intervaolometer

I am looking for a little help with my Z6ii camera with an external intervalometer. Last summer I was able to use the Aodelan WTR-2 intervalometer for an astrophotography class I took and it worked perfectly. I just took it out again this week, and I cannot get it to activate the shutter on my camera. So far I have tried the following:


  • I replaced the batteries in the intervalometer with fresh batteries.
  • I updated the camera to the latest firmware (1.40).
  • I replaced the cable from the WTR-2 to the camera with a brand new cable.
  • I have tried all of the settings on the WTR-2 (using the timer and pressing the button manually).
  • I tried the Auto, P, and M modes on the camera.
  • I looked for a setting in the camera, but did not find any that looked right.


I am looking for any advice on how to get this to work. I would also be interested in what intervalometer others are using. I know the Z6ii has a built in intervalometer, but I do prefer the external one for astrophotography.



Thanks form the help.
