Flash unit compatability

Can my Kr camera successfully operate with a AF 200 S Flash unit ?

Only in manual or using the Auto mode. The K-R does not support TTL.

Yes, in manual mode only (generally by controlling the aperture). The same applies to all other Pentax flashes that don't support P-TTL.

Except the ones that have Auto - like the 200. Set the f/stop on the camera and let 'er rip.

Flash compatability.

Thanks for that Gents.

More concerned with possible damage to the Kr internal electronics, rather than the technicalities of selecting the appropriate camera settings.

No Pentax flash that I know of will damage the electronics of modern DSLRs. Third party flashes are another ball of wax, though.
