I'm a bit confused here, and the descriptions don't help. I had earlier noted the Bower:

On the B&H site, however, it says of this flash:[INDENT]The Bower SFD926P Digital Shoe Mount Flash is an economical flash with complete TTL exposure support for digital SLR cameras. This version is dedicated to the Pentax/Samsung P-TTL metering system.
This is exactly what I was referring to. In this case, they are using TTL in a generic sense, in that the light from the flash IS measured through the lens. However, it does not use the older sensor-in-the-mirror-box system. It uses the newer P-TTL pre-flash system.

I'm sure if you looked at the same flash for Canon or Nikon, it would refer to I-TTL or E-TTL, which are Canon/Nikon's (can't remember which is which) terms for their pre-flash systems.
