Re: Digital Concepts PTTL flash and K10D?

Hi all.
I'm a newbie from Brisbane, Australia.
I picked up a Pentax K100D 3 months ago - great investment.

But being an amateur on a novice budget (still a student), I was even cringing when I clicked the Buy now button for a Digital Concepts 736AF flash unit. I've read Guy's review on the 936AF, which is appealing, but I had one major issue with mine that I'm wondering if anyone could help me out with...

I bought the flash for its bounce capability. Hoping it would adjust flash intensity when I tilted the head, I was disappointed that the bounced shots came out very under-exposed. I bumped up the Flash Exposure Compensation to +1.0, but that made it worse. After a while, I thought to try the other way, going to -2.0, and it actually improved the exposure. Any logic in this?

The 736AF was claimed by the sellers to be P-TTL just like the 936AF, but I'm finding this is only true for direct flash. Is there something I'm missing or is this an engineering glitch with this flash gun?

Thanks.
