Does my K200D have rear/trailing curtain flash sync?

To my knowledge, my K200D doesnt come with a dedicated "option" for choosing trailing curtain sync, but I've seen on various websites that the K200D does have that ability (including I wonder if it is buried in some menu where you have to choose yourself? I've read my owners manual and it seems to have eluded me. I'm asking because I know Slow-sync (front curtain) doesnt have a dedicated "option" either, but if you choose Night Portrait mode which it automatically does it for you or you can go into Tv to choose your own shutter speeds.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, read pages 134 and 140 on your manual. I think in body trailing curtain function only works as a slave when using external flash.

Thanks Nico! I don't know how i missed that section. I must've searched "rear curtain" instead of "trailing curtain"

On Page 134, it says that the built-in flash is capable of trailing curtain sync (provided that shutter speed is 1/90 or slower). But as you said, on page 140 it seems that the in-body flash only seem to do trailing curtain sync when coupled with an external flash.

Does anyone know if this can be bypassed? Is there a way of achieving trailing curtain sync with the in body flash? Thanks.
