Pros: Small, tilt, TTL
Cons: Not P-TTL capable

Perhaps the smallest and most versatile of the legacy Pentax flash units, this one will work in Manual mode with all current and legacy Pentax DSLR's and SLR's.

The great thing about the AF220T is its tilt head, so bouncing off the ceiling is a fantastic way to diffuse light. It takes 4AA batteries but is still relatively compact. that's because it is a "dumb" flash, being able to only balance its output in A mode with Pentax film SLR's. but if you can do manual adjustments on your DSLR, once you dial it in, this flash is so small it makes up for it.
