Re: Enabling "Servo" mode on Metz 48 AF-1....

I went into the menu and toggled the built-in flash between "Master" and "Controller" mode (Pentax K-7 'Custom [5] 31. Flash in wireless mode'). It doesn't seem to affect the functionality between the camera and the Metzs' servo mode. Exposures appeared to be identical.

All that is happening, is the Metz recognizes the main flash and triggers with whatever power setting is has configured. In other words, it does not receive any particular data from the camera on which it could base an exposure value as determined by the camera. Totally manual...although the built-in flash still has its flash EV to contribute.
