GR III outdoor with flash

I have small Metz 24AF-1 flash for Pentax.
tried it outdoor at bright sun around 16:00.
Leaf shutter makes a miracle!
I've put Rogue flash gel (6500K->4600K) 1/2 stop light loss to match color temperature
put tape around lens adapter to prevent loss of it

I use my GR III with the Pentax af200fg flash, the flash is larger and heavier than the camera but it's worked great with accurate exposure. What settings did you have for the flash to get this balance, flash set to manual or pttl?

I think it was Tv 1/100s -0.7EV.
I found even light flash for GRIII - Flashq Q20II - fully manual but, easy to use. since x-sync 1/2500s
