[ACQUIRED] Used flash for non-TTL, remote

With my spiffy new Cactus v5's I need (ok, want) an additional flash to sit outside near the feeder. I guess I am looking for something like the Vivitar 285HV (before they started having the QC issues) or Sunpak 383 but will consider anything with a tilt head, good range of manual settings (1/32 at least) and prefer low voltage that could pop onto a K20D or K-5 directly without issue in a pinch. High power not needed as I only use my Metz48 at 1/16 at most when outside.

A few scratches and marks not a problem but extra credit for carefully handled and metal shoe if possible. Brand name preferred

Please PM model, age, condition and price including shipping to zip 23452.

Thanks!

Don't forget to consider the Nikon SB24 and SB28 flashes -- they are solid, adjustable and will safely trigger from your Pentax cameras.

Thanks for the tip. I know very little about flashes, thus the Wanted ad instead of just buying something I off ebay I hope will work.
