2 AF360 flashes, Master, Slave Manual mode

I have 2 AF360 Flashes. I have one on my K100 camera and the other remote. When I setup the flash on the camera to be the master flash the only mode it lets me select is P-TTL. What I would like to do is put the master flash in manual mode. I'm I missing something here or is that the design?

Yes sadly its true, its the design of the flashes that the flash will be stuck in p-ttl mode...
I am waiting for pentax to get into advanced lighting options like Nikon and Canon have, for such things as flash interval shooting--I'm starting to want my flash units to do stuff like what Joe McNally does-- but I know pentax has nothing in its range that can help me.

It might not be much good to you, but my Metz 58 AF1 can do servo mode. Maybe some of the cheaper metz flashes can as well.

48 AF-1, 50 AF-1, and 52 AF-1 as well. Not the 44 AF-1, though.
