Off-Camera Lighting

Hey what's up? I am looking to get lighting involved with my photography now and I was looking into the Lumo Pro flash for off-camera manual flash lighting. Here is the link: LumoPro LP160 Quad Sync Manual Flash MPEX .. my question is, does anyone know if this is compatible with the k-r?

My thoughts are that it is, I just need to get the PC to Hot Shoe adapter. Then I can get a long Miniphone to PC synchro cable.

Now, I want to hear your thoughts.

(later on you might also want to post in the flash/lighting section)

It looks like it will work with the K-r, however, bear in mind that the flash is manual so you will have to figure out the aperture yourself. If you want an automatic external flash, you will need something that's compatible with Pentax's P-TTL, such as a Merz 48/58 or a Pentax AF 360/540 FGZ. The 540 comes with its own stand (I think) so you can use it in the same way as the lumo flash.
