missing module for Sunpak DX-8R

Hi all!

I just received a Sunpak DX-8R but it has the canon module. I can't find the module for Pentax (PT-2D) anywhere online.
If some of you cames across one for sale, please give me a buzz.

thanks a lot!
Gabriele

Since only a few of the #st D models support TTL you can use any of the modules on later Pentax DSLRs which are P-TTL. You just have to set the mode to ?X" or the shutter speed to 1/180 or slower.

The PT-2D and PT-1D modules will set the shutter speed to 1/180 when the flash is connected and powered up. In P, M, TAv, and Tv if the shutter speed is lower than 1/180 to begin with it stays at that setting, You can change it but are limited to 1/180. If it is higher than 1/180 it gets set to 1/180. In Av and Sv mode it gets set to 1/180 no matter what but in Sv mode you can choose a slower shutter speed.

the Canon module doesn't fit on the K3 shoe. It slides in but not all the way so the 2 pins don't rech the 2 contacts on the shoe.
