Hi, All,

I am able to reproduce the problem with my K100D; assuming the macro function of the K-m to be similar to the K100D.

I have taken two shots in macro mode (first one without flash and second one with flash popped up).
The exifs are:
1) iso 1600, multisegment metering, auto-white balance, f13 and 1/1000
2) iso 1600, multisegment metering, auto-white balance, f22 and 1/180

Since the built-in flash does not support HSS, therefore, the shutter is set up to 1/180, the only parameter it can change is the aperture, which is set to min-f22.

My conclusion: there is nothing faulty about the camera; it's user error.

IT IS USER ERROR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Spot meter a white sail, you will get an underexposed picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shoot at ISO1600 and the pop-up flash outside, you will get an overexposed picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
