*ids & 360 FGZ problem

I am a new Pentax user and very happy with the camera. I've just purchased the flash (360 FGZ) and having some problems. The flash is working fine but once in a while it freezes. Nothing works on the flash even the power switch can not be turned off. The display is on but no respond of any kind. Only thing I can do is to pull out the batteries to reset. Then it works fine for a while again. It is a annoying problem with great camera. Have anyone experience somthing like that? Should I send the flash back? What am I doing wrong?

I have had this problem with one of my AF360s. I think that it is the one that eventually quit, out of warranty, and cost me $80 for a new board. If once in a while is 1 out of 1,000 shots that is one thing, but if he happens almost each time that you use it you might have a dud. I would exchange it.

FIXYA does not supply spares for any equipment. I would suggest Ebay, or your local Pentax dealer or service centre.

Vivitar lens to Pentax K-x camera adapter.

It depends which camera they were originally designed for use upon. If they are M42 lenses, then yes, but without any automatic facilities whatsoever - if not, then it is unlikely.

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.

Problem with AF-360FGZ Flash

Yes. The *istD shutter can only provide X-sync for electronic flash up to 1/150 sec. The *istDS reaches 1/180 sec. "High speed" electronic flash is done by strobing the flash repeatedly during the period that the shutter slit is traveling across the focal plane, at th expense of cutting power output quite a bit.

Flash won't fire on p-ttl mode

The AF360 can be in TTL mode until it is mounted on a P-TTL compatible camera and turned on, then it senses the camera and goes to P-TTL. However, sometimes in the past when I got TTL and it should have been PTTL it meant that either the batteries were not connected properly (I know, sounds strange, but check the battery compartment cover to make sure it is seated properly and make sure that the batteries are all in proper position), or that the AF360's contact pins were not all making proper contact with the shoe or extension. Beyond that it could be a faulty flash. You have swapped lenses and cameras with the same result, how about swapping flash? Unfortunately that may be your problem.
