Pentax 67 FP flash for 1/125 and 1/250

What flash is it which can support 1/125 and 1/250 sync speed for Pentax 67?

All Pentax 6x7 bodies have a 1/30 flash sync speed. If you are using a leaf shutter lens any flash can sync with it at any speed, however the AF400T & 6x7 grip is recommended:

FP sync was used with special kind of flash bulbs, it's not compatible with any modern electronic flashes.

Based off of your other post on film, your shooting in studio right? Are you shooting off camera? I don't believe the 400 supports TTL on the non 67II bodies. So if your shooting all manual you may as well go for the best performance for your money. Do you have any other more modern cameras you could base your strobe purchase on?
