Product Description

Details

The Pentax AF 540 FGZ II Flashgun is an auto flash unit for Pentax DSLR cameras. This portable flash unit features a guide number of 54 (at ISO 100/m) and a weather-resistant construction. On the front of the AF 540 flashgun is a fixed LED light, which comes in handy for close-distance movie recording and still-image shooting. The user can customise the flash operation by pre-setting as many as nine different flash functions to their preference, including the on/off of the catch-light function using the LED light and the option of the flash discharge mode in still-image shooting. The flash head can be adjusted to angles of -10 to 90 degrees vertically and up to 180 degrees horizontally for creative bounce flash. When coupled with a WR (weather-resistant) body and lens, this combination offers a versatile digital imaging system that assures solid performance even in harsh outdoor environments.

The key features

Weather-resistant construction
Guide number of 54 at ISO 100/m
LED white beam
Horizontal and vertical bounce
Wide-angle panel
Small and light design
LED light convenient for movie and still-image recording
Both models incorporate a newly designed, high-intensity fixed-light LED light in their body. This white LED light comes in handy not only for close-distance movie recording, but also for still-image shooting requiring extended exposures. It also functions as a catch light in portraiture and an AF assist light in the dark.*

* The AF assist light function is available with 645D, K-r, K-5, K-30, K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-50 and K-500 camera bodies. The camera’s firmware must be updated to the latest version to support this function.

User-friendly function settings
The user can customize the flash operation by presetting as many as nine different flash functions to their preference, including the on/off of the catch-light function using the LED light and the choice of the flash discharge mode in still-image shooting.

Versatile flash control system
Both models provide a variety of flash discharge modes,** ranging from the advanced P-TTL auto flash mode in which the flash’s preliminary emission is detected by the camera’s light sensor to accurately control the main discharge level for proper exposure, to manual flash, high-shutter-speed synchronization and wireless P-TTL auto flash.

** Available flash discharge modes may vary depending on the camera body in use.
