Nothing with the Pentax brand will damage your camera- and this flash is certainly safe to use.

You will not be able to use it in TTL mode, however. If you want full automation, look for a P-TTL flash like the AF 360 or 540.

Thank you Adam !!!!!!!!!!!
I already have a = Pentax AF240FT Shoe Mount Flash ( great condition ! )
If i understood you right ! , I should be able to use that one too on my K-50 ! ... right !?
I don't mind using it manually !
I am just afraid of damaging the new cam by using an old flash !
