Question about Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera
I've been reading the *ist DL manual and according to it the *ist DL WILL do high-speed flash sync and also wireless flash with an external flashgun, just like the *ist DS. Can anyone confirm that this is correct from a different source? The manual I am using is the istDL_web.pdf manual from the http://www.pentaximaging.com website; last modified on the 13th of June 2005. http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/istDL_web.pdf My local camera shop which had previously told me that they had stopped stocking Pentax DSLRs got the *ist DL in last week (Pentax must be offering it at a decent price to the retailer) so I may have take my flashes in and test it if no one else can confirm (that’s if they’ll let me test it).

I suspect that it is virtually identical in capability to the DS model with respect to flash capabilities. Someone with a DL and an AF360FGZ flash unit will be the only ones who can verify for sure. Neither Phil Askey nor any of the other review websites are guaranteed to be correct. Not even manufacturers' manuals are guaranteed to be correct.

According to the manual (page 153), the DL DOES support P-TTL flash, with the built-in or external flash, but only supports high-speed flash with an external flash. What I'm wondering is, what is high-speed sync flash useful for? The only thing I can think of is fill-flash outdoors.
