[ask] Flash for Pentax ZX-5 Film SLR

Dear friends,

I would like to ask what flash to use for my old Pentax ZX-5 Film Camera?
I'd go for a used Pentax flash or third-party one, but my budget is only around USD20-30.
I truly appreciate your help, guys.

Cheers.

Okay. For $20-30 I'd look at a Pentax AF-330FTZ, a Pentax AF-280T or maybe a Pentax AF-400FTZ. These all use TTL metering which your camera has.

There will also be plenty of third party flashes as well. The Sunpak ones I have used in the past worked well.

See this page for the legacy Pentax flashes - Flashes (Genuine Pentax - Legacy) - Pentax Camera Accessory Review Database

and this page for the third party flashes - Flashes (Third-party - Legacy) - Pentax Camera Accessory Review Database

Regards

Chris

Thanks for the reply, Chris.
I'd look for those flashes you suggested on webmarkets (ie. ebay, etc).
Hopefully I can find a nice one over the internet. Thanks again.
Cheers!
