I have used my k5 with an off camera flash using the camera flash as the as the master by setting the flash settings to wireless and then change the "flash in wireless mode" option to off so it doesn't contribute to the exposure.
But cannot find anything on the new K3 in the custom settings to enable the pop up flash from firing???
Am I missing something?
Can anyone give me a clue !
Many thanks

When set to "master", the pre-flash is sent by the on board flash to send the information to the slave, and to trigger the slave, but the flash level is reduced so it doesn't contribute to the exposure.
