Comments about Pentax Pentax AF-200FG P-TTL Flash:

I am a small private school yearbook teacher who has just had to take over photography training as well. I bought this because of the high reviews. I wish I had put the money toward a tilt/bounce model flash instead. For family type situations the flash is very harsh. There is not alternative adaptors to give greater flexibility with these kinds of straight on flashes. I have a lot more Photoshop adjusting to do as a result. It is what it says it is, the price is good but the overall use is very limited.

I just returned from a 24 day tour of South America. There were many times I wished my
camera had a stronger flash to use. Thats why I bought this flash to improve on my future pictures.

Comments about Pentax Pentax AF-200FG P-TTL Flash:

The product has given me a fame close to that of the pros. My friends and colleagues at work now want me to be present at their parties to take their pictures. I used it at a sporting event of one of my friend kid and the production was awesome. I will recommend this product to anyone that's in love with photography like me. I dont get paid for it but people do offer to pay for my services without minding the cost despite not being a pro.

Comments about Pentax Pentax AF-200FG P-TTL Flash:

This isn't half bad, really. The flash does just fine indoors, and it is capable of fully lighting a room if used correctly. No bouncing off the ceiling, but the flip-down diffuser does soften the flash considerably. The flash actually does just fine for casual use. However, if you're serious about your camera work, opt for at least the 360, if not the 500.

It truly can light a room.

Comments about Pentax Pentax AF-200FG P-TTL Flash:

Very good flash. It provides a consistent output. It is very bright. Only 2 major cons. 1. solid state (cannot have direction change) 2. No secondary flash/strobe effect (built in has one) to help focus. Overall, very good product, excellent price. Would buy again.
