    The Flash Guide has advanced further now, and I have released the 'Supplement' PDF, which is 40 more Pages covering aspects not previously dealt with. It goes side by side with the 2nd Edition of the Guide, and will remain until everything is combined into a new 3rd Edition, probably during 2018 sometime. Both Documents can be downloaded from links in the original Homepage Article here .... Comprehensive Pentax Flash Guide - Articles and Tips |

    Thanks, I hope it is helpful .... Weddings are always a real challenge, and not just because a flash is involved! Good luck, hope it goes well.

    Hi Nigel ... I accidentally stumbled across your flash guide and also wanted to say thanks. I downloaded it and am now trying to figure it all out in less than a weeks time as I need a flash for a wedding. YIKES! Thank you for this though ... it looks like it's going to be quite helpful

    Hi Ray, and thanks! As per my PM to you, looks like I need a better proofreader ..... I will look again at that section and re-write / clarify that it is the ISO that will vary . It might be worth mentioning too that the ISO range is set in the Auto-ISO Parameters screen on the camera. Thanks for spotting this

    Hi Nigel, I have been meaning to do this for a while now. Thank you very much for your flash system guide. That has to be one of the best and clearest explanations of how Pentax flashes interact with Pentax cameras. I learnt a lot from it.
    But there is one bit which I confuses me. On page 23 when talking about TAV mode you said "Aperture and shutter time values will adjust in response to your ISO adjustments...". My understanding and experience is that once you set aperture and shutter speed in TAV then the camera sets the ISO and that aperture and shutter speed don't change. Am I missing something here?
    Regards, Ray Allen.

    Thanks! It was a lot of work but the sort of work I like doing!. MJSfoto1956 and hman, sorry I dodn't see your questions originally. I have copied them into the Sticky forum thread about the Guide and made a reply there, in the interests of all seeing it.

    quick question: do you know if Pentax supports PTTL with two Pentax flashes attached to the hotshoe via a (custom) split cable? (Canon does, Nikon does not).
