Pentax KP with Metz 26 AF-2 in remote doesnt work

I got a reply from Chris Metz in the UK.
==================
Hi Martin

Thank you for your enquiry.

The Pentax KP is not on the Metz website compatibility list but I think it should work. Unfortunately I haven’t got a Pentax KP to be able to test but these are the steps and settings I used with success on a K-50:

Metz 26 AF-2
Set to SLAVE mode on back of flash

Pentax
Pop up built in flash
Press flash button on back of camera and select wireless flash mode

The Metz is set to receive from flash channels 1-4 and as the system is optical ensure the wireless flash can ‘see’ the built in flash. The K-50 has a custom function setting which allows the cameras built in flash to be used as a Master Flash (built in and external flash contribute to lighting) or Controller (only external flash contributes to the lighting). Both settings worked successfully with the K-50.

================================

I missed the 'pop up flash' part. It works fine now with the kp flash up. The kp flash is just the trigger, the flash light for the shot comes from the remote flash (Metz). It's very bright.
Thanks for your replies.

Hi
I have a Metz 26 AF-2 and a Pentax KP. I have updated both firmwares V1.3 and V1.11 respective. The flash works well on the camera shoe mount, is very bright for such a little thing. When I take it off and place it in slave, switch the KP to wireless (ch1) in manual the Metz unit doesn't trigger.

Am I doing something wrong?

Anyone else got the flash to trigger with this camera? what setting did you use?

Yes I edited it in Affinity Photo. Pentax made a film camera called MG. KG is also the short for kurtgeiger a designer; the measurement for weight and a Knight of the Garter.

Noooo that's a fake, you can tell by the white balance. This is the real one ;) It's like the MG film Pentax I own.

Opps, I posted to the wrong thread. It's a 75mm-150 M f4. I don't yet have a 50 M but that will change.

What lenses do you use on your KP?

Mainly the limited stay with camera for college and walkabouts. The 40mm ltd is great for street photography, and the 70mm ltd I just purchased and getting to grips with (massive confusion circle, what do I do now?). I have been playing around with my 75-150mm M zoom and got some great results. It's on the camera now instead of the 55-300 which I dropped and broke. The 75mm-150mm will stay until I can find a replacement. The lens baby 45mm Sol come out from time to time, depending on my mood, which, lately has been mostly sharp in the centre and a little blurry around the edges.

If you want light primes, go for the limiteds. I have the 40mm ltd and am amazed at the IQ on my KP. These also have quick shift, are designed to be used on aps-c. I have both 35mm and 50mm plastic fantastic and they are good.

Interesting. I tripod shoot out of alleyways so people do not see me on approach. I guess the K1 would be what Vivian Maier would use today if she still took photos.

LCD brightness difference between OFF and -1 ?

Yes, there is no model number but the serial number might tell us what batch group the camera was made. I have a very early model. There might be variations in production hence the different behaviours of the screen brightness.
