Sweet Compact Flash
“I gave one to my son and also purchased one for myself after seeing the quality and performance one gets for such a reasonable price. (I also have the AF540FGZ but wanted “tiny” for travel). Very powerful compact flash. It’s lightweight, even with the batteries installed and tucks nicely into a small camera kit bag for travel. In typical Pentax fashion of excellence it even comes with a very nice protective pouch. Nice. The price is right and Amazon’s availability, service, and fair price can’t be beat. It makes one pretty happy.” – By Prairie Dog
weekend holiday picture taker
“WOW, surprised what a deal I got on this this flash. I got a pentax ist d and wanted to get a flash for taking family pictures. Works great with my dslr. I pair this with my 45mm wide angle lens and gives the picture the right coverage. The auto flash works perfect even when I set timer. Would recommend this to someone who wants a flash for wide angle picture taking. “ – By Edward G. Ramos

What a bargain! What a product!
“We purchased the Pentax AF-200FG Electronic Flash to go with our newly purchased Pentax K2000 camera. We found the camera’s flash did okay most of the time in our shooting, but we needed more in low-light settings. We popped the AF-200FG on and holy smokers! We found it did a superb job in the settings we were shooting in. We even went to a lower-lighted setting and the flash did great. Going even further – just for kicks – we went to a room with no lights on and no windows. Even then, we got adequate pictures of items in the room. “ – By Gil
