A compact auto flash unit for PENTAX interchangeable- lens digital cameras, featuring a dustproof, weather-resistant construction and easy to use operation
RICOH IMAGING EUROPE S.A.S. is pleased to announce the launch of the AF201FG auto flash unit, designed for use with PENTAX lens-interchangeable digital cameras. This compact, portable unit has a maximum guide number of 20 at ISO 100/m, and features a dustproof, weather-resistant construction to provide solid, dependable operation even under harsh outdoor conditions including rain and mist.
1. Compact body, with dependable dustproof, weather-resistant design for outdoor shooting: This auto flash unit has a compact, well-balanced body ideal for use with PENTAX K-series digital SLR cameras and the smaller, lighter Q-series lens-interchangeable models. Thanks to 18 seals applied in crucial parts of the body including the hotshoe, it features a highly dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction. When paired with a dustproof, weather-resistant camera body and lens, it ensures solid performance, even in harsh outdoor conditions such as rain and dust.
2. Bounce flash function up to a 135-degree tilt angle: The flash head can be adjusted vertically to 10 different angles (-10, 0, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, 105, 120 and 135 degrees) for bounce flash operation. By bouncing the flash discharge off the ceiling or wall during indoor shooting, the user can soften the subject’s shadow to create more natural, true-to-life portraiture.
4. Other features: Built-in wide-angle panel that slides out to cover 20mm angle of view (in 35mm format)
