This PL160 Dedicated Dual Flash (For Pentax) from Polaroid has full TTL dedication, plus a continuous LED light, making this a terrific light if you're shooting still photos and video, since you don't need to switch back and forth between flash and continuous light. The flash has a guide number of 148' (45 m) at 85mm/ISO 100, vari-power settings of 1/1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16, and built-in "self-storing" diffuser and reflective panels. The flash head tilts and swivels and features an auto zoom function that sets the flash zoom for the focal length of the lens (24-85 mm). Recycling time is between 0.5 and 9.0 seconds, depending on the power setting. An auto sleep mode means less charging time and more shooting time. The Dual Flash operates on 4x easy-to-find AA batteries.

    Comments about Polaroid PL160 Dedicated Dual Flash (For Pentax):

    I bought this on in November 2011 and in less than a month I am returning it. It stopped working? I bought two new sets of batteries and it would not work. The LED light is handy to help see your focus and the flash worked great while it lasted. I got good full lighting using the built in wide angle bounce shield. I used it with a 10 - 24 MM lense and it reached the widest areas I needed. The thing just stopped, first the display didn't show all the info from the Pentax K-r camera and then it would not flash. I would not recommend this lense because it failed. If it didn't stop working I would be happy with it and it would have been great. Iam now purchasing the Pentax AF 360.
