Pentax interchangeable lens cameras now have a new accessory, the AF201FG flash with guide number of 20 at ISO 100/m. It’s weather-resistant, thanks to 18 seals applied in crucial parts of the body including the hotshoe, for a dust-resistant and drip-proof construction that prevents the entry of water and dust into the flash.
A built-in wide-angle panel slides out to cover a 20 mm angle of view (equivalent).
The AF201FG provides bounce flash functionality, adjustable to angles of -10 to 90 degrees vertically.
New is an assignable mode button that allows shooters to program their settings to their liking. Users can select from five modes including, Off, P-TTL (leading curtain sync), P-TTL (trailing curtain sync), Manual (full), and Manual (1/4). Powered by two AA batteries, the AF201FG will be available in the body colour black in March for a suggested retail price of $169.99.
