Setting the shutter speed AND aperture on the K10D

Okay, I can set the aperture. I can set the shutter speed.

Problem is, whenever I set one, the camera takes it upon itself to set the other. If I want depth of field, the camera always thinks I need a long exposure. Even when I don't.

How do I override this?

Also, which flash units are compatible with the K10D?

You are in P mode. You want to be in M mode.

Or shoot in TAv mode - set Av and Tv and the camera will select ISO for you.

Its not like you can just set your aperture and shutter speed to whatever you want. You can only go so far away from what your camera wants to do before you'll get a picture that is exposed to poorly that you won't be able to use it.

ETA: If you just want to change it a little bit I'm a huge fan of using EV compensation.
