K-5II & AK-TTL, (K-5II stabilization error)

The k-5II works perfectly with the AK-TTL, ttl perfect transmission. However, do not turn on the stabilizer. Why? Remote ttl flash using only a tripod everyone? I use the latest software 1.06. When will software update that fixes this big mistake?

I don't have any idea what you're talking about.

Are you talking about shake reduction? In combination with a tripod? How does AK (what is that) TTL fit in the picture?

Can you please rephrase?

I'm sorry, my English is terrible, I'm learning.
When I turn on the wireless flash Shake Reduction switch off automatically.
AK-TTL: http://www.aokatec.com/AK-TTL.html
Radio Wireless TTL flash trigger. Really TTL!

I found this thread that describes the same problem for the K20D: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/6-pentax-dslr-discussion/154936-why-no-sr...ess-flash.html

So it's an old issue and therefore I would not hold my breath that it will ever get fixed.

No, it's fine k-20d!
I do not understand why you think the producers do not have to stabilization. I shoot a lot of weddings, with AK-TTL is fast, no time to install, ready in a minute a studio. Shake reduction without tiring, and not needle sharp. K-5II perfect color, better than Canon or Nikon, but there are fundamental errors in flash mode. One that no shake reduction wireless flash. There is a modern hardware, but if work then K-20D? I wanted to k-3 too. but it? Is it possible to work with?

The reason shake reduction is turned off in flash mode is that you run very high probability of ghosting, s the flash duration is short enough to freeze the image. Sensor movement can lead to blurr. There can also be ghosting and double images but this is also problematic with slow shutter speeds regardless of shake reduction.

What speeds and lighting conditions are you shooting in that require both shake reduction (assumed slow shutter speed compared to 1/fl) and flash. To me, I would think at lighting conditions that low, I would use the flash to offer general scene lighting and make up almost all the illumination requirements.

The speed is not the problem, maybe 1/30 or 1/180. The machine plus lens plus portraits handle, a lot of weight. Children's photography, a child 12 picture, after the fiftieth been wearing, and even Where's the hundredth? Flash on the camera body then there is no problem shake reduction, needle sharp images. If no ttl, studio shoot is even shake reduction (manual) needle sharp images. I do not understand why you can not needle sharp picture shoot wireless flash?! The manufacturer why not let your creativity? I think the ghosts would be no problem, because it can occur at other times (studio) too. AK-TTL perfect in no time-shift . Not shake reduction, no needle sharp photo: http://www.fecomp.hu/0828/_FEC2235.jpg (example: child eyes)

Solution: Studio Flashes, not ttl flashes. Needless to wireless ttl flash, making it unusable. Now go to work...
