External & Pop-up flash

For the first time today, I used the pop-up flash with an external flash connected to the PC socket. I bounced the external off the ceiling, and used the pop-up for a fill.

Here is a sample. First the pop-up, then external bounced off the ceiling, and the third shows both together. The External is a Sunpak 544 connected to the K3's PC socket.
