Is the Pentax flash shown compatible for Ricoh GR Digital *8 megapixels *1 1/8 sensor *released Japan 21 Oct 2005 (Japan)
Asked by: Colin
The Pentax AF201FG Flash may be mounted on the Ricoh GR Digital, but you would have to use the flash in Manual mode as the Auto (TTL) mode would not be compatible for use with the original Ricoh GR Digital, which used the Sigma TTL automatic exposure system. According to page 189 of the original instruction manual for the 8.1 megapixel Ricoh GR Digital, Ricoh recommended the Sigma EF-500 DG SUPER SA-STTL Speedlite Flash or the Sigma EF-500 DG ST SA-STTL Speedlite Flash for use with the GR DIgital, both which used the Sigma TTL hot shoe design for TTL automatic flash usage (both of these flashes have since been discontinued and are no longer available for purchase). As the camera uses the Sigma TTL system, the only two flashes we currently carry that may be compatible for full TTL automatic exposure would be the Sigma EF-140S Electronic Flash, B&H # SIEF140S, or the Sigma EF-630 Electronic Flash for Sigma Cameras, B&H # SIEF630.

question

Is this flash compatible with the full-format Pentax K-1 camera? The description mentions APS-C format compatibility but not full-format.
Asked by: Carlos
It is compatible with the K-1. I don't know why they would even mention APS-C, a flash is not something IMO that is aware of sensor size.

question

If you please, advise if this Pentax AF201FG Flash comes with batteries, if so, now many & what kind?Thanks
Asked by: B.C. E.
Mine included (2) AAA batteries that had a silver jacket but did not indicate any brand, manufacturer, or country of origin (nor any voltage). I would urge you to NOT use these 'free' batteries in the flash, because one of the two leaked acid at both ends and partially corroded the contact at the bottom of the battery compartment... I'm very P.O'ed about that!!! I purchased some Energizer 'Ultimate Lithium' AAA batteries to use going forward; bought them in a bulk pack at one of the big warehouse clubs for the lowest per battery cost. Lithium is known to have a long shelf life, while Rechargeable batteries typically will lose charge over time and they actually have an initial voltage of something less than 1.5 Volts (typically only 1.35 to 1.4+ or so) and rechargeables also lose voltage over a period of a few weeks.
