  • Excerpt: I bought my copy used from KEH, in EX condition. I got it to supplement my AF 540 FGZ. Compared to the 540 it is nearly as powerful, a little slower to recycle, and a little simpler in the control layout. Of course it doesn't do P-TTL, and I bought it to use in manual mode. I prefer the manual power adjustment on the 500 -- it's just a button, where the 540 is a button and dial.
  • Pros: Manual settings, controls, power
  • Cons: Recycle time not quite as fast as AF-540 FGZ

  • Excerpt: I got this flash for my home studio, to act as a radio controlled light source. I'm impressed by what I've seen so far.
  • Pros: Extremely well made, slave mode, multiple manual levels, fast recycle, multi-burst manual
  • Cons: No P-TTL, heavy

  • Excerpt: I give 10 to this lens even though it does not have P like in P-TTL, it only does TTL. I use it as slave and flashes wonderfully. I use it in a studio for portraits and for photographing small items in a box. I also have an AF360FGZ that I use also as slave or as master. The two work wonderfully. I also use this flash on the camera with a diffuser to photograph in weddings and parties, I use it as a bouncer. I think this lens uses less power than the AF540FGZ.
  • Pros: Best looking and built flash by Pentax, wonderful and useful
  • Cons: It cannot be used as a master or control, but as slave, but that is the way I use it

Pentax AF500FTZ

  • Summary: El Pentax es un flash que por su multifuncionalidad resulta de mucha utilidad y facilidad de manejo, aún cuando en ocasiones de mucha luz no nos sea de mucho agrado por el hecho de ser muy fuerte al no utilizar el difusor. Cuando lo he utilizado fuera de la cámara con la finalidad de que la luz rebote en el techo no he obtenido los resultados esperados porque en el caso de fotografiar a personas las sombras proporcionadas te les van a salir.
  • Pros: calidad
  • Cons: Por ahora ninguna

Cuando lo he utilizado fuera de la cámara (con un brazo o soporte extensible) con la finalidad de que la luz rebote en el techo no he obtenido los resultados esperados porque en el caso de fotografiar a personas las sombras proporcionadas bajo las cejas dejaban un tanto que desear;...
