Help with K5 and Metz 48 AF-1 Flash
Nov 11, 2012

I recently sold my Metz 48 flash on ebay. The buyer is using it on a K5 and cant seem to get a proper exposure. He says no matter what he does the photos all come out dark.  I had him check to make sure the flash is not in slave mode, had him bump up th EV on the flash, and made sure the settings on the K5 were ok.

I rarely use a flash, but when I did (on my K5) I dont remember having problems - though the dark exposures issue sounds vaguely familiar. I think it may have happened to me but if it did I'm sure I resolved it quickly.

Any ideas on what might be going on?

Thanks for the help,


Pentax K-5
