K-3 flash exposure

There may be a number of threads like this already, but this is another positive post for the K-3 flash exposure.

I can use my 360 in PTTL again.

After the DS, the K-r and the K-30 favors fill flash or slow exposure with flash. It would have been nice if this can be overridden (not in manual of course) by a setting.

It can't be easier, Grinmode. Turn the dial and increase the shutter speed or decrease Exposure Compensation.

This is why you have a DSLR and not a P&S. :-)

Thanks clackers, but it can be easier. The DS like the K-3 did not have this exposure bias.

It was faster to work with. No need to compensate.

I actually had to use my 360 in manual mode, not that it's a bad thing, but I bought the flash for its P-TTL capability

I use a K-30 with a 360 and don't experience exposure problems with P-TTL, Grinmode!

Same camera and flash .... if the firmware is the same, it's a matching setup!

I got the latest firmware on the K-30.
You can compare flash behaviour in auto (green mode) and P mode.
I know you don't buy a DSLR to use in auto mode, but just to see my point.
