AF260sa Flash on Pentax K7

Anyone know if I can use a Pentax AF 260 Sa flash on a camera K7. My question is whether that flash can cause damage to the camera. Thank you.

It won't cause any damage to your camera, though it will have to be used in manual mode as it doesn't support P-TTL (or even TTL for that matter).

X mode selecting shutter time is set at 1/180, does the flash will set the aperture, as well in my Mz3?

It should, yes, as well as in P mode.

Thank you again. Use the AF260Sa in K7 and it worked without any problems.
I also tested a AF200S and also got good results.
