 Post subject: First Hotshoe Flash unit
PostPosted: Wed Nov 11, 2009 7:00 pm 
Hello all,

Awesome that we now have a flash and lighting area now, especially since i've just purchased my first hotshoe/wireless flash unit for my Pentax K200D. I got Pentax's top of the line AF540FGZ flash at a great price however the manual that came with it is very confusing. Im just wondering if anyone knows of any tutorials on using on camera and off camera flash. I've searched youtube and a few others and cant seem to find what im looking for which is how to use a flash correctly. Power levels, focal length etc.

Can anyone stear me into the right direction?

The strobist blog is a great place to start (most notably the 101 course on the blog). It's extremely comprehensive. ... g-101.html

If you want more of an example video, the Onelight DVD's are extremely good and clear, with a pretty funny guy explaining everything. Also, both sources are pretty much system-independent, so everything should apply to pentax too. :)

I take pictures so quickly, my highschool was "Continuous High".
