FlexBody and P25

How can I get the P25 to work on the Hasselblad FlexBody ?
I have the Kapture Group trigger but the results are not good.

Thanks to Josef Hoflehner from Austria , I have it sorted.
He suggested: Try two shot mode - wake up the back with the keyboard and use a standard cable release for the shutter.
This worked.
The secret is to first close the lens by slightly pressing the cable release in half way, then wake up the back with the keyboard and use a standard cable release to trip the shutter.

If using the Kapture Group trigger you first need to disconnect the \"lens to back cable\", then close the lens, connect the \"lens to back cable\" and you are ready the shoot - without having to wake up the back with the keyboard - so you don't need to be tethered.
Works great - 100mb files when two images are stitched together.
Works pretty good at full shift, both +15 and -15 with 40mm lens.
+10 and -10 is 1st class if stopped down to f11.

Hope this helps others who may be thinking of using the FlexBody.
Thanks Josef,

Ashley
