I'm taking photos at my sisters wedding, not as "photographer" but just to get some nice pictures indoors in the evening, the wedding is in the middle of April so I want to buy a flash ASAP so I can start playing with it and getting used to it.

So if I want an automated one that "talks" to the camera what is the best value? Or is it best to have a manual one with lots of features like the 560?

Also has anyone experience of the Metz 36 AF-5 Digital Flashgun, I assume this is automatic?

K20D flashgun Yongnuo

I'm looking to get a flashgun for my K20D and am getting very confused about what is suitable.

I'd love to spend a fortune and get a dedicated Pentax flash designed for the camera, but have limited budget and have seen the Yongnuo YN-560 II and YN-560 III on amazon at very reasonable prices, plus a friend has the Yongnuo YN-568 for his Canon camera and is very happy with it.

Can I get some advice as what to get, I'd like something that has a few functions so not just the simple fixed flash - seemingly the YN-560 would be great, but will it work with a K20D???

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

I know I'm going to sound stupid but will the YN-560 III (or the YN-560 II) just fit straight onto my Pentax K-20D?

Having done research around there are dedicated pentax flashes and these type that use the generic hotshoe. What difference does this make?

I know what I'm doing with flashes so I'm not put off by it being manual, but just can't seem to find anywhere any info on if this gun will talk to the camera or not, and what the benefit of getting a dedicated (and more expensive) Pentax flashgun would be.

Any info would be great, thanks

Help! Autofocus switch stuck on AF.S and will not autofocus!

Hi we tried an old lens in our K20D and it was a manual focus lens, I'm not sure if we put it on when it was in AF.S mode or not, but now when we put our proper autofocus lenses back on it will not autofocus and on the screen it says MF even though the switch on the front will physically not move back to MF

Really confused and hope we have not broken our lovely camera!! Any help or suggestions would be great

We tried all of the different lenses we have, cleaned the contacts, taken battery out for hours, taken out memory card, restored settings to default and still no luck, getting quite panicked that we have done something drastically wrong by putting a manual focus lens on when in Autofocus mode! Surely Pentax wouldn;t let the camera break due to this???

Thansk in advance
