Check the configuration of the hot shoe on the flash AND the camera. The only issue you should have, is setting up for the heat range and the syncronizing speed.

Is it OK to use a Pentax AF500FTZ flash on-camera with a Nikon D70s? Is the trigger voltage going to be a problem? It looks like one can use a Nikon flash on a Pentax DSLR without problems.


The brands use the flash contacts to communicate to the camera. They do not make their flashes compatible with other brands. Don't mix brands. Even if trigger voltageis not an issue, the TTL and AF is not going to function.

Pentax k-m not recognized in iphoto


I'm unfamiliar with iPhoto, but if it's fully up to date and still does not list the Pentax K-M then see if it allows you to manually select the Pentax K-200D.

As the K-M is essentially a budget variant of the K-200D it may solve your problem.

If not, then hang on a bit longer and someone who is familiar with iPhoto may see your question and be able to provide a more accurate answer.

Can i use this flash with a nikon d60?


No you must use Nikon compatible flashes with Nikon cameras. Pentax flashes only work on Pentax cameras. There is no adapter to make it work either.

I want know the price of PENTX OPTO E 40 . Price in indian currancy. thank you


Dear BPrakash1968,
Although the exact price in India is not known however I saw a gentleman quoting a price of Rs7000 for this model and he says that its "brand new camera" (in his terms). The link is:
http://mumbai.olx.in/pentax-optio-e40-8-1-mp-digital-camera-iid-11008392

As he is selling it for secondhand.. the original price should be somewhere around 8500 to 9000 .. that's my guess.
Hope that helps.

Regards,
Srinivas

Can Film Camera lenses and Flash be used for Digital Camera Body


If u used to have a Pentax camera, i would recommend you buying a Pentax DSLR, because Pentax film lenses still works on Pentax DSLR. I still use some of my prime lenses on my K10D.

THE PICTURE WHEN I SHOOT DONT APPER IN THE SCREEN BACK CAMERAL THAR I PURCHASE AND RECEIVE TODAY WHEN I WAT TO SEE PIC BEFAORE TAKE A PHOTO I CAN T SEE THE REAL PIC IN THE SCREEN BEFORE TAKE PICTURE WHATS...


The Pentax 200d does not preview the picture on the LCD. You compose the picture in the view finder. After the picture is taken you can look at the picture only when you push the bottom left hand button. I would contact Pentax Inc. USA at 600 12th. St., Golden, Colorado 80401, for a French manual or info on how to get one.

Washed out pictures using a Bower 724 AFPX flash


This is probably not the camera settings. Pentax k200D wilt only give auto-flash with just three of their own units. Sounds like you have the Bower set on Auto. Set the flash to Manual, and adjust exposure on the aperture setting with the body set to manual as well.
Note that several people have reported problems with Bower units on digital cameras (and not just on Pentax)

What is the trigger voltage for Pentax AF 500FTZ


When using a digital camera with a flash unit of unknown trigger voltage, you are risking the life of your camera. Excessive trigger voltages can disable the cameras internal circuitry to the point where it is totally beyond repair.

I do not have, in my files. the trigger voltage for the specified flash unit. I only have the specs for larger portables and studio flash gear.

A simple test , however, will reveal the exact trigger voltage. If you have a multi-meter or a DV voltmeter with a 250 VDC range (just to be in the safe side) you can preform this test at home or an electronics service technician can do it for you in a few minutes.

The test lead are placed across the synch contacts on the foot of the unit or plugged into the sunch socket if the flash unit has one. If the reading is more that 4 or 5 volts you can still safely use the flash with the aid of a protector device which goes in between the flash and the camera. Theses are available at better camera shops and dealers.

Pentax me super camera


Hey judyrosebudd,
You should be able to use any flash that is not dedicated to another camera manufacturer. Even though the manufacturer lists this camera as a dedicated flash unit it still has the sync contact in the center of the hot shoe mount, which is all that is required to operate a all manual flash. This being said a dedicated flash should provide much more advanced options and simplicity of use. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
