K3 Flash Modes

I just recently upgraded from the Kx to the K3. I seem to only have 2 Flash modes listed in the menu? These are Auto Flash Discharge and Auto Flash+Red-eye reduction. Where are the rest of them? Auto, On, Slow Sync, Slow Sync + Redeye, Trailing Curtain Sync, High-speed sync, Wireless, Manual Flash etc?


It came complete with firmware 1.11 installed. I am at a loss, is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Take it off green mode and you'll see them.

Thank you, that was it. It is not clear on the manual.. I thought I had bought a Lemon, I got it new from Adorama so it can't be broke. I have just got it and I am slowly working my way through the manual and getting used to the K3 modes and operation. I have been using the Kx since 2009, and finally upgraded.

But the K-x is the same, Geoff. Options (such as SR) aren't selectable because of the mode you've chosen.
