My friend who is a Canon shooter suggested using "Fill Flash", what is the equivalent of this in Pentax world?
I'm glad everyone sorted it out for you.

This Canon shooter was wrong. Why would you listen to him instead of us, your even better friends, he bought a Canon?

Ha ha, he is one of my best friends and he is very good at photography, he gives me lots of good tips. This tip provoked me to learn new stuff right

We always have a friendly debate, He tries to 'Canonise' me and I try to 'Pentaxise' him.

It is entirely possible what the Canon friend meant was to use (the already mentioned in this thread) HSS mode flash where you shoot above the sync speed in a special mode designed for that use. The output of the flash is drastically reduced as it fires multiple low power impulses during the exposure to avoid the banding otherwise present above sync speed. I've heard this called fill flash by some newer photographers, even though that's not wit the right term.

As mentioned earlier in the thread the default mode you were using is fill flash, and as you found out the f1.4 setting limits the usability in daylight when you are close.

He mentioned use of Onboard flash but asked him if the shutter speed is limited to certain number when using onboard. Next time when we meet will probably try his camera to see how it outputs to similar situation.

Any possibility onboard flash might have HSS feature on Canon?

Edit: Confirmed with him that he uses external flash for these kind of situations, Onboard limitation is same as Pentax. I misunderstood him, power of quick WhatsApp chatting lol.
