I can't get the Pentax Q-S1 to work with dumb flashes that have only a center pin. Same flashes work fine with Canon. Voltage is 6V or less between center and edge on all. Is there a workaround? Not a total loss, I have slaves that will work on 2 flash but not 3 (redeye) or 4.

I was toying with the idea of buying a Bridge camera like the Pano. FZ 70 primarily for portability and reach the zoom lens provides, but the Q system seems like another alternative with its small size and the ability to adapt long lenses I already have. I'm aware of the convenience of 'One lens does all' but IQ may favor the Q with higher quality lenses. Let me mention that I use several brands of cameras with their respective lenses and a collection of legacy glass, I don't need another...
Although I understand that the Q-S1 had some ergonomic and other mechanical upgrades to the Q7, has anyone noticed any change in the image quality? My concern, actually, is that the Q-S1 might be a step backwards, or a step away from, the nice film-like results I've seen in the original Q and the Q7. Thanks in advance.
