[SOLD] AF540FGZ Flash and off camera cable with FG adapter (Worldwide)

Item Location

Item Description
$300 Pentax Flash AF540FGZ which includes a 5p 3' off camera flash cord and an FG cord to camera adapter.
Everything works just fine and the flash was recently checked by Pentax head office service because it needed a new diffuser. Comes complete with all original parts and owners manual

Only 'issue' is the flash had (by me) velcro attached to the head and there's some residue that won't come off. Also has some slight scratches from use. Otherwise a great working unit.

1) Flash, works as new, clean battery compartment. All functions/parts A+
2) Flash stand that came with unit in box
3) Flash storage pouch in near mint condition
4) Owners manual (Eng) and original box
5) 5P 3 foot flash cord. Allows off camera flash bounce and can put flash on cold shoe bracket.
6) FG Flash cord to camera hot shoe adapter.

Shipping to Canada and the USA $15.00 Ask for WW.

Can the port on the flash be used to pass P-TTL to other flashes when the 540 is attached to the camera?

Thank you

Russell, I don't think so. Since I don't have 2 of these, I can't check. I'm very certain though that's it's an input connection and if you connected 2 P-TTL flashes that way, you either get nothing going to the second flash or confused data between 2 flashes with different readings. There's no way to make the first flash the "commander".

They have the Hot Shoe adapter designed to be stacked for this use. Then you can have multiple flashes getting the correct input.
