flash guide updated for k-7 built-in flash

Not a big deal, but I've updated my Pentax-compatible Flash Guide to reflect that the K-7 built-in flash appears to be the same one as that on the K20D and K200D. (40% more powerful than the one on the K10D and K-m/K2000.)

Wow!

What a great piece of work, your flash guide is


You're probably planning a year off to incorporate the new ring flashes, don't you

The K-7 flash is more powerful, but the most interresting - to me - is that it raises higher than the other built-in flashes by Pentax, which means it is compatible with more lenses and has the added bonus of also reducing red-eyes.

That was a good reminder to go and click a couple of G00gle ads! Well done that man.

Thanks. I'll probably hold off on that until I get a chance to actually see at least one of 'em in person. The next major update I need to make is to convert the "Sakar" section to "Tumax/iCorp", because I'm 90+% sure that's who actually makes all of generics.

I've also got partially-finished pages that focus on the beginner, intermediate, and advanced segments....

So much work, so much other things to do.

Good point. When the production camera is out and we have some real-world experience with that I'll add a little blurb to that effect.
