Digital SLR Cameras: K20D
PENTAX offers an assortment of optional accessories
to further expand the creative world of digital SLR photography. Clip-on-type
dedicated flash units, for instance, deliver a more powerful discharge than the
camera’s built-in auto flash to accommodate a wider range of advanced flash applications,
including a bounce flash technique used to create a softer lighting effect.
Dedicated flash units simplify advanced flash techniques
All three dedicated flash units feature the P-TTL auto flash system, which
assures fully automatic operation, even with highly advanced flash applications.
With a guide number of 54, 36 and 20 (at ISO 100/m), they offer a flash discharge
more powerful than the camera’s built-in auto flash and a discharge-level compensation
function, assuring greater flexibility and broader creative possibility in many
The AF540FGZ and AF360FGZ also offer more advanced flash synchronization modes, such as wireless P-TTL synchronization and high-speed synchronization, as well as an auto-zoom function, which couples the angle of discharge with the lens’ focal length. In addition, their flash head can be tilted to the desired angle of discharge for bounce-flash applications.
setting with one remote-controlled flash
Since the bounce-flash technique applies soft lighting to the subject, it can produce a very natural, well-balanced image. The addition of one remote-controlled flash unit eliminates the subjects’ shadows, while beautifully exposing the background.
