      I bought this flash on a tight budget to get through a photo shoot.Overall the flash worked very well.The synch between flash and camera was very good even in very low light.Cycling time was about 6 sec. with fresh batteries,but dropped considerably as they became weaker.I thought the battery compatment door was very flemsy. I had to be careful for fear that it might break. As with most flash it began to shut down after about 150-200 images from heat.Once the flash cooled down it was fine.

      Good deal for powerful entry-level

      Haven't busted it out for serious yet, but it's not too heavy and gives me a better flash than the on-camera flash. Usin' it with a Pentax K-x. No complaints so far.

      Won't work with K-3

      By Jeff J.

      from SLC, UT

      Comments about Bower SFD926P Digital Shoe Mount Flash for Pentax/Samsung SLR:

      This works with my K20D body, but not the K-3. It freaks out and flashes multiple times with the K-3.

      Really good buy for me

      By Gallopingphotog

      from Texas

      Comments about Bower SFD926P Digital Shoe Mount Flash for Pentax/Samsung SLR:

      Has all the features I wanted -- TTL, zoom, swivel head. A serious shooter heavy into flash might like more features but that isn't the direction I'm presently headed in. Only complaint is the battery door it is tricky to open. A simple sliding door would have sufficed.

        Great value for the money! I am merely an interested amateur, and as such needed an affordable flash. This flash is absolutely perfect for my needs and is certainly very well priced.

          Comments about Bower SFD926P Digital Shoe Mount Flash for Pentax/Samsung SLR:

          I got this because I needed a flash I could use on and off camera. This one does that, with some minor restrictions. The TTL metering only works when the flash is in the 90 degree position. If you point it to bounce, it goes manual. The eye (red lens) has to be pointed at the camera in orer to use in as a "slave" unit.
          Supports trailing and leading curtain functions from my K5.
          The TTL works really well on camera.
          The battery door is flimsy, so be really careful.

            Excellent flash for indoor shots using fill flash. Much better than on camera flash. Pretty quick recharge rate, however, the more expensive flash units would be quicker. Battery life so far has been good. Controls seem decent, not great. Easy to use in ttl-auto mode. Not a professional flash but very good for most casual users.

              So far so good. I like the tilt and swivel. I also like that it senses what the settings are from my camera and matches that as best it can.

              Comments about Bower SFD926P Digital Shoe Mount Flash for Pentax/Samsung SLR:

              So far I am impressed with how much you get for so little. But with that said you still get what you pay for.
              For instance after just three days the zoom head jammed and the flash no longer functioned. Although through frustration I found that if you smack the flash on the top or the back of the flash head it unjams.
              Other than this issue I have been very pleased with this flash. The leading curtain sync, trailing curtain sync, slave mode and AF assist light all work like they should and I love the built in bounce card and diffuser.

                Great first flash! I've had it for a week. I never used my in-built flash, but this thing gives huge flexibility and works brilliantly. No real drawbacks considering the price.

                  I have only had this flash for a few weeks but it seems to work well. It is a budget flash unit, but it is much better than a lot of the other ones out there. I have had no problems with it at all, and it works as advertised. Is cycles faster than my factory flash and gets more flashes per battery change too. Overall I am happy with it.

                      Tilt and swivel, diffuser, zoom... Everything you need in a good flash! Sure, it's not suitable for a professional intense use, but it's all 95% people needs at a fraction of the price.

                        I wanted a flash unit that I could use for portraits and also when the on camera flash just isn't the right thing for the job. I'm quite pleased with this flash unit.

                          Have just started using the flash, and it is my first so have just been getting used to using it. But it is easy to use and has already taken some great pictures.

                                I used this on my family's Christmas portraits and it worked just fine. It has plenty of power to bounce off the ceiling and light the area very well.

                                we needed to add more functionality to our ageing pentax ist-d which we needed to use for a wedding the TTL worked great on 99% of the shots that we did... nearly bought the real thing for twice the price.. locally.. [...] really happy with it...

                                Excellent features for the price. The flash does a great job. I especially like the built in difusser which nearly eliminates the need to cary an extra difusser and wide angle attachment.

                                  I did a lot of research on finding a flash for the Pentax K20d. This flash kept popping up so I decided to purchase this one instead of the Pentax brands. Wow, I am so glad I did. This flash is perfect for hobbyist, semi-pros and professionals. Do not hesitate to buy this flash from BH.
