K01 and Metz 54 MZ4

I can't seem to get this flash to work in auto flash the way it does with my old K 10D. I have the SCA 3002 module. Any advice? Thanks Bob

So, what happens when you set the K-01 to manual mode (with speed equal to or less than 1/180s). and the MZ4 to auto mode?

I think SCA 3002 is a module series, not a particular module. What module do you have (e.g. SCA 3702 for Pentax)?

When set to manual mode and the mz 4 set to auto I do not seem to get the range listed on the flash. It will under expose. I'm sorry the module I have is the SCA 3702.

Interesting. I have several copies of 54MZ-4 and 54MZ-3 with SCA-3702. They behave the same with K10D, K-7, and K-3. I can't imagine Pentax changed the flash interface on the K-01.

A workaround is to use an SCA module NOT dedicated to Pentax. Any SCA module with a hot foot that physically fits Pentax is OK. You'll lose the "smart auto" feature (the ability of the flash following the settings on the camera), however.
