Pentax 67 flash cable

hI

these days I'm thoughtful, is there any way to use the flash in 540 Pentax 67?
Input to Flash is fp5 cable and the inlet 67 is PC 165 has a lens LS
and I see no way to connect the lens to the flash using the cable fp5.

Camera Pentax I Off Shoe Adapter F, but he has the same input cable fp5

I don't think so, as you need a you need a 5P to X-Sync PC cable which Pentax did not make. They did make a 4P to PC X-sync cable.

good suggestion, just got the 540, original idea was to use in
camera and lens leaf shutter, but buy another flash-era film is interesting.

The Pentax AF400T works the best with the 67, but with no TTL support. You can buy a 6x7 AF400T flash grip for the 67 camera and then use the 4P to PC sync cable for your LS lens. (See photo)

The AF540FTZ will work on the 67II camera & hot-shoe grip, but not with a LS lens.

Very interesting, I found on ebay flash grip, and here in my town 400 af.
But I decided to try to adapt 540 in 67 I . bought a cable pc x pc and a flash shoe with PC input, connected to shoe 540 and the cable pc x pc comes in LS 165 mm. It worked.

Thanks Phil for their help, I will consider buying the flash 400 af.

Good news, that's an interesting way of getting it to work!
