Polaroid's PL144 Shoe Mount Flash for Pentax is a full TTL-enabled flash with support for Pentax SLR cameras. The power-zoom flash head provides coverage for lenses from 24mm to 85mm, with a guide number of 148'/45 m at the 85mm position. A built-in slave allows it to be positioned off-camera, and triggered by another flash. The output level can be adjusted from full-power down to 1/16th power, and an auto sleep mode means less charging time, more shooting time. This is a perfect all-purpose, economical flash for anyone using digital or 35mm Pentax SLRs. A "self-storing" diffuser and reflective panels, as well as a fitted protective case, are included.

    Comments about Polaroid PL-144AZ Shoe Mount Flash for Pentax:

    I needed a flash that could re-fire faster than the on camera flash. I also wanted one that would work off camera as well. This one did the trick. While taking indoor family pictures, mostly of my niece, I don't miss a thing now. I also take outdoor flora pictures at all times of the day. The adjustable power settings work great when I want to get creative but the auto is on the money when I don't want to have to think about it. Only complaint is it didn't come with the pictured flash stand.
