How is HSS enable in a Sigma EF 530 DG Super / K20 combo?

Hi,

My Sigma flash came with no instructions. The "booklet" is totally useless.
How is HSS enabled in a Sigma EF 530 DG Super / K20 combo?
and for that matter, how is rear curtain activated/used?

Thanks,

I have the Sigma flash for my K-x, it should be the same idea. Once you mount the flash, press mode button until P mode comes up (the step after the ISO mode). In P mode, press the + button until FP appears in the top line. Now you should be able to select higher shutter speed than your flash sync. The rear curtain option is activated the same way with the + button, with two arrows displayed in the top line. Hope it helps.

Here is a link for the whole manual (thanks to forum member mdave13). Hope it helps.

Thanks for the information and for the link. My flash did not came with the manual. Only a single sheet of paper with a pretty much useless summary.

Thanks!

It works on k5 too

Thanks! I had been trying to figure this out for a while now. Thanks for the tip. I thought I was going to have to sell this to get a Pentax version.

I have just bought this flash recently and would use it on my K100DS.
Even after reading the instruction manual, I had to experiment with it to get all of the functions to do as it should including HSS.
At first, I thought that it didn't work..until I played with it and finally got it to work.
Even when trying to go from one mode to another, the best way is to turn off the camera THEN push the buttons and IT WILL respond.
Once you got it attached to the camera and the camera is "on", the Sigma flash won't easily respond with button presses to change modes or settings.
