Q10 + 03 lens can't go faster than 1/30?

My lens 03 -fish eye- can't go faster than 1/30" when the Q10 flash is on at every shooting mode, if the flash set to off everything back to normal.. It's quite annoying since I can't do fill in flash for back lit situation with this lens.

Is it normal or it's just I got a bad copy one?

The Q/Q10 use an electronic shutter for the toy lenses since they do not have a built in leaf shutter like the 01, 02, 06 lenses.
On the Q it is limited to 1/13 sec, looks like the Q10 can do better at 1/30 sec.
I think it is working as designed, you'd have to check your user manual to confirm.

My manual only says it's MF, constant f5.6 and can't do Bulb (2 secs shutter speed), it doesn't mention anything about fill in flash limitation.. Well, I guess it's normal then. Thanks crew1
