Cheap Flash for K30

Hello All,

I'd like to buy a flash for my k30. I watched this and thought it would be a great thing to add to my kit.


However, I am confess I am deeply confused when reading about the various flash terminology. Also is it possible to take the flash off the hot shoe and remotely fire it? What would I need in that scenario?

I'd like to limit my budget to under $100 US because I am saving for a lens purchase. I took a look at the B&H website and I found many non-Pentax flashes for less than $100. I also found this:

Pentax Autofocus AF500FTZ (GUIDE NUMBER 150) (MZ, PZ, SF, ZX SERIES) / BOUNCE, SWIVEL, ZM WITH CASE , SHOE MOUNT FLASH - KEH.com

Can someone give me some direction on where to go? I'm lost and don't want to fry my camera.

Thanks,

Brad

You might do better asking this in the Flash section:
