[langtitle=fr]Flash af-360FGZ et Pentax K-7[/langtitle]


Je possède depuis peu un K-7 et J,ai un flash Af-360FGZ.

J'aimerais être capable d'utiliser mon flash avec un câble et le relier au "hotshoe" de mon K-7. J'ai essayé le mode Wireless et cela n'a pas fonctionné. (je pense que cela prend 2 flashs pour être capable de faire cela).

Quel type de câble est-ce que cela prend ? Je suis un débutant et je vous remercie à l'avance de votre aide.

You don't need a cable or a second flash to use your AF360 in wireless mode (although you can if you really want to: PENTAX Off-camera Shoe Adapter F - Pentax Accessory Review Database - Flashes, Grips, Camera Bags). The build-in flash can be used to trigger it.

Simply set your K-7's flash to wireless mode, and the AF 360 to wireless slave. That should do the trick!

Make sure your onboard flash is popped up - this is what triggers the wireless flash. And as Adam said you need to select wireless flash mode on the camera and set the flash to wireless and slave settings. If that doesn't work, make sure the wireless channels are the same. You can sync them by putting flash in the hot shoe and then turning the flash and camera on.

Thank you both of you. It finally worked. I did not put the flash switch button at the proper positiion : I should had put in the intermediate location between off and on.
