    Pentax AF201FG reviews

    AF201FG Flash is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance so far This flash is a perfect fit for my Pentax K1. I haven't used it too much, but I have nothing to complain about so far. It is small and light, just what I wanted. The full power mode, however, is good enough - particularly since the K1 can handle higher ISOs and slower shutter speeds. Also, being fully compatible with the Pentax TTL system, the auto mode works much better than the earlier Sigma one that I used. I am very satisfied with the flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, small, walk around flash It is light and small, it only use 2 AAA batteries, very easy to bring it to walk around. It has tilt flash head can flash vertically and even it can tilt to the back to do some reflective flash, much more flexible than the internal flash. It almost need no time to recharge, you can flash immediately between shots without waiting for recharge, for flash uses only 2 AAA batteries, the performance is very good. The surface is the same as that of the professional DSLR, not the cheap plastic. If it has the light sensor to support light based triggering that would be even greater.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not working I purchased about two weeks ago and though nice and compact, it failed to fire for a majority of the time the ready light was on. It worked about 10 % of the time, and only by luck after hitting the shutter button 30 or more times. After I get my replacement I will give a another review.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice and compact but died after a year of very light use A great compact flash for my K3 II that I could always bring with with me. However it just stopped working after about a year. I have two other much older Pentax flashes that are still working after more use so I am very disappointed with this model.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little Flash Not a bad little flash. If you are a small room with all white walls and and standard height white ceiling it's easy to fill the room with reflected light. It easily fits in your pocket. Just remember it runs on AAA's and not AA's.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This bought this flash to use for all the Christmas parties and gift openings. Everything went perfect and without a hitch. This little flash puts out plenty of light and works perfectly. It's very simple to use and I love the fact it is sealed because it was already in a sleet and snow situation and is still fine. Love it and would buy another if I needed to!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, simple, flexible This is a nice addition to a Pentax Weather Resistant kit. For a K3II owner, it's definitely something to consider, since that body has no built-in flash. What's nice compared with a built-in flash is extra power, no fragile hinge on the body, and the ability to pivot the flash, including behind the body for bounce effects. There's no downside to this as long as you understand it is not as sophisticated as the higher-level flashes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Bounce Flash Nice compact flash to complement the Pentax K-3 II that does not have a built-in flash. Head will rotate so you can have bounce flash as well.
