Pentax KR + AF360FGZ Flash Problem


I have the above camera and flash. With my previous camera a K100D Super the flash worked perfectly.

However with the K-R and kit lens the display on the flash in pTTL mode read "Manual Zoom". With that lens is should read Auto-Zoom and automatically alter it's wide angle settings as I zoom the lens.

Anyone have any idea why it won't go into Auto mode? The lens I'm using is the 18-55kit lens and it should work fine with this.

Hi Paul E. --- If I understand correctly it sounds like you have activated manual zoom. Try pushing the "Zoom" button several times until "A.Zoom" shows on the screen.

Sadly that dosn't seem to be the problem or maybe the unit is faulty.

Pressing the zoom button doesn't change the display. Even when the flash is detached from the camera.
