AF201FG Flash

Designed for users who are seeking a compact, lightweight and portable flash, the AF201FG is compatible with your PENTAX K series and Q series digital cameras. Weighing a mere 141 grams, this handy flash will aide in capturing superb imagery. With its weather-resistant and dustproof construction, outdoor elements are no match. Enjoy the bounce flash function, which is adjustable to angles of -10 to 135 degrees vertically.

Bounce flash function up to a 135-degree tilt angle
The flash head can be adjusted vertically to 10 different angles (-10, 0, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, 105, 120 and 135 degrees) for bounce flash operation. By bouncing the flash discharge off the ceiling or wall during indoor shooting, the user can soften the subject’s shadow to create more natural, true-to-life portraiture.

Dependable dustproof, weather-resistant design for outdoor shooting
This flash features a highly dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction,thanks to 18 seals applied in crucial parts of the body including the hotshoe. When paired with a dustproof, weather-resistant camera body and lens, it assures solid performance, even in harsh outdoor conditions such as rain and dust.

Simplified, dial-access operation
The simplified operating system allows the user to start flash photography instantly by turning the discharge mode dial, which double-functions as the ON/OFF switch. In addition to the OFF position, this dial provides a choice of four discharge modes: P-TTL auto flash with leading-curtain synchronization and P-TTL auto flash with trailing-curtain synchronization, and manual flash with full discharge and manual flash with 1/4-level discharge.
