I have a K-3II which has an X-sync socket ; does this mean I can plug the cord into this instead of buying a Hot Shoe Adapter F?
Asked by: Philip C.
The X-sync socket or sometimes referred to as PC socket transfers the trigger signal for the connected speed light only. All settings need to be manual. There is no TTL communication due to two signal lines only. If you want all the automatic functions available with the speed light off-camera you do need either the components you mentioned or just an all in one adapter cable as mentioned by one of the contributors mentioned. Having tried those third party offerings myself without any success due to way too big tolerances I decided to go with the original Pentax products which work pretty well. Best of luck and kind regards, Udo

HI, In order to get the flash off the camera (with TTL) I need the cord, the hot shoe adapter (31022) and the shoe adapter (31046). Is this correct? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. You are correct. For the cord, you can use a Pentax F5P 3' Extension Cord (MFR # 37347).

Does it fit the pentax k3?
Asked by: Christopher C.
It will fit my K-7 and K-5, I do not have a K-3. Just a note the Off Camera Shoe Adapter F does NOT have electrical contacts on the bottom. You need a Hot Shoe Adapter F or FG to get the contacts.
