Hi Fellow Pentaxians,

I have some questions regarding the wireless flash on K5:

1. Does the on-camera flash really need to fire when using an external flash set as slave?
2. How do you set an external wireless flash to be used in curtain-sync mode?

Thanks in advance!

> Yes, but it does not need to contribute to the photo (can be set as controller only in the menu)

2. How do you set an external wireless flash to be used in curtain-sync mode?
> Can't remember too well, seldom use it this way. IIRC, set the external flash to curtain-sync mode. Else, try to set both master and slave in this mode.
I can only ask you to try and experiment yourself and perhaps you will find out enough to share here in the future ;)
