Flash gun for Pentax P30

Discussion in 'Pentax' started by Frederick Williams, Dec 31, 2008.

  1. Can someone please tell me which Pentax flash guns are compatible with
    the Pentax P30? I'm especially interested in ones that are no longer
    manufactured that I might find second-hand.

    I would think that any flash with a Pentax logo will work. I have several
    oldies that still work fine with my new Pentax D-SLRs and older Pentax film

    One candidate is the Pentax AF280T. It dates back to the Pentax Super
    Program (manual focus). As I recall, it has through-the-lens (TTL)
    capability if the camera body has it.

    I think it is compatible with an autofocus SLR, the ZX5N. I'm not sure
    where your P30 fits in time-wise. If you have an owners manual for it,
    there may be a section that mentions recommended flash models. If you
    don't have one, perhaps a manual can be found on the web.

    All manuals for all Pentax cameras and flashes are available in pdf format
    from Pentax.

  5. Mid 80s I think.
    Yes it does but I seem to have lost it :-(.
    Good thinking Batman! Why didn't that occur to me?
