Sigma Ring Flash EM-140 DG & Pentax K01


Has anybody tried this combination?

I Tried but the flash always fires 100% power in TTL-Mode and produces dark frames in HSS.
Same setings with ring flash on my K7 or a "540" on my K01 worked fine.

Any solution beside manual mode?

Sigma web site does not list k-01 as compatible with that flash. Is there a usb port or other possibility of a firmware update on the flash? If so you might contact Sigma to see if they plan on adding newer Pentax camera models, k-30 is not listed either. Outside of that it might be manual only.
