Looking for a small flash(blitz)

Hi


I'm looking for a new flash for my Pentax K200D. I already own a Pentax AF360FGZ, but it kind of fell off my table(attached to my K200) and broke its foot. It still works as a wireless flash though. Having an wireless flash has become quite a hassle, so I'm thinking about buying a new one.

When thinking of buying a new flash, I've found that it would be nice too own a flash that I could have attached constant (and put into a backpack or shoulderbag)
My brother has a Nikon SB-400, which is quite a nice little flash. I've looked at the Pentax AF200FG but it looks a bit too large.

So I'm wondering if someone knows about a small flash for Pentax cameras about the same size as the Nikon SB-400?

P.S. My K200d survived the fall form my table without a scratch.

How about a Pentax AF160? It should be available used for about $10.

It does not have p-TTL. But I prefer Auto to p-TTL so the AF160 not having p-TTL is not a problem.

I had glanced upon it, and I feel that its pretty much the same as Pentax AF200FG just a bit older.
I'm looking for a smaller/lower flash, that I can have attached and still be able to put it in a small shoulder bag (something like the Thinktank Retrospective 10 which is on my shopping list)

Smaller than that, you may consider just stick with the built-in flash.

WTF

Why have all my links been readdressed?

My links of Pentax flashes were addressed to www.pentaximaging.com and my Nikon flash link were addressed to a random image I found via Google.

Now they have been readdressed to B&H Photo Video | Digital Cameras, Photography, Camcorders a page I've never heard about until now.

B&H is one of the sponsors of this site. I guess the forum engine has some automagic linking feature that translates the names of certain products into B&H links.

You don't want to leave the flash attached to the hot shoe in the bag. You'll either end up with a broken flash or a broken camera.

Thank you
