Sigma EF-500 DG ST for film camera?

Hi, have anyone ever used this flash with a film camera? I just need to find out is it TTL or P-TTL only. Can't seem to get any information. I have the opportunity to get one for my TTL film camera.

Here you go:

You might have to reload the page a couple times for the manual to show.

Thanks. I've gone through the manual a few times. I see two clues:

In the introduction, "This product is specifically designed for the Pentax SLR"

In the specs, "Color temperature: Suitable for daylight color films"

It's not so clear, but I assume it is TTL since they mention film. Unless they were referring to the newer P-TTL film cameras..

The manual states it as TTL.
