Item Description
PENTAX AF280T Flash w/original case + Non-Pentax remote flash sensor. The sensor attaches to the flash hot shoe and has a tripod mount on the bottom plus a flash-cord sync terminal. I have test-fired it & everything seems OK: 3+ sequential flashes on low power; Red/Green settings work correctly. Hot Shoe Mount is a bit wobbly (typical for this unit) I've owned it for 30+ years.


Canada & USA (lower-48): $25.00; Canada, by Insured Expedited CanadaPost; USA, by Insured Tracked Packet.
Other destinations, please inquire.

DESCRIPTION (from Pentax Forum):
The AF 280T is a hot-shoe mounted flash which provides TTL automation, two-level auto flash (using the sensor in the flash), and two levels of manual output.

TTL automation works with cameras which has a built-in TTL flash sensor like the Super Program/Super A, LX, 645 film series, 67II, many autofocus bodies, and the *istD, DS and DS2 DSLR cameras. On non-TTL cameras the auto flash and manual modes can be used.

The flash light can be bounced off a ceiling or wall since the flash head swivels and turns. The flash head can also be turned downwards for close-up photography.

Optional accessories: A wide-angle adaptor (shown in third image above) which broadens the angle of view which is covered, and a telephoto adaptor, which extends the range.
