Excerpt: I needed a separate shoe mount flash that was within my budget but not too complicated to use. This Pentax AF-200FG shoe mount flash satisfied my needs. Since most of my shots that require flash are typically for parties and some indoor events, this add-on flash more than satisfies my needs and saves the battery life of the camera to focus on taking pictures, instead of splitting its power between the camera and its onboard mini pop-up flash.
Excerpt: Easy to use and mount to camera, fast charge and compatible with most auto mode, built in and quality diffuser for wide light. Battery cover is not useful and it's sense of expense is poor. Made in China, no rotation vertically and horizontally, but very accurate to use light sorce and amount of light. Not a stylish flash, a bit heavy cutting edge to exposure of deformation.Enough durability due to the static body.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling

Lacks any type of bounce and swivel functionality, so expect some hard lighting and shadows. Included Sto-Fen OM-PZ8 does *NOT* fit this unit!
