Does the AF 240 FT flash work with K110D ?

Hi! All,

I just received this flash with some lenses. Was wondering if it can be used with the Pentax DSLR's? I have a K110D.

Thanks

Tasha

This is a yes and no answer. The flash is TTL and the camera is P-TTL. You can use the flash in manual mode only (both camera and flash in manual). The trigger voltage is fine and will not harm the camera (many after market brands have very high trigger voltages and can mess with the camera's electronics).
You may find that the flash will do a fine job in short range shooting (less than 10-12 feet) above that the flash will be in manual and you will set the shutter speed and aperture to take the shot. With some experimenting and practice you can get good results. It just won't offer 'point and shoot' simplicity until you practice a bit.

Thanks a lot for the info. I was especially worried about the voltage which I read somewhere could cause problems.

Tasha, I've used my AF280T and AF400T without issue on my K110 and K10D. I wrote Pentax a few months back to make sure the older flashes would be safe with today's digitals. They assured me that there was no electronic concerns. But never use an 'off brand' flash before having the trigger voltage checked first.

When using the 280T with a P30n you have to set the ASA film speed. Since the K100D doesn't have a film, what setting do you use on the flash?

the film speed/asa is the same as the sensitivity.
