Where's a flash for the Q?

Where's a decent (bounce, swivel) flash for the Q? Or are you supposed to use the huge AF-540FGZ with it?

Yes, Pentax lists the AF-540FGZ, AF-360FGZ and AF-200FG as accessories for the Q. There is no flash designed specifically for the Q.

The AF-540FGZ will definitely dwarf the Q! It would have been nice with a more compact option.

Sure, just use it off camera, and your flash pictures will look better as a result. The Q's built in flash is capable of triggering any of the pTTL flashes, or you could get a Yongnuo 602, they are small and light, and that way shoot with manual flash.

The Metz 24 AF-1 is probably the smallest quality flash you will find for Pentax cameras.
