Hi, i have a pentax ISTDL and when i try 2 use it in manual focus the AF still works on its own

Check your lens there is often a AF/MF auto/manual focus switch

Other than that it could be a problem with the camera take it to your dealer

Overexposure unless in manual mode

Is your "exposure compensation" (the button with the +/-) set to "0" or some other setting?

Compatible Flash Units

pentax istDL does not support TTL flash metering unlike most of the other pentax DSLRs. You need a flash that is P-TTL. How annoying hey? I was pretty bummed, but it made me learn to shoot fully manual...

i think that there is only one P-TTL flash on the market at present. (AF540 or something)

good luck...

Flash on ist DL

Looks like its true... Another major disadvantage. Removing TTL means removing one more hardware piece - TTL sensor. Pentax removed almost every nice feature, which needs some aditional or more expensive hardware: no TTL flash, less AF points, pentamirror... Seems like I bought Ds right in time.
