finally back in business with macro

By

from Berkshire County, MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this flash primarily for photographing honey bees and other insects, but it's great for all types of macro photography and portraits. I preferred the coil cable on my old af080c. This one is a little stiff and bulky, but hopefully that means it will be very durable.I also like the fact that it has multiple manual power settings,an led lights for previewing and focusing aid, and multiple adapters.To sum it up, this flash has it all.

great macro tool

By

from earth  -  Casual Photographer

Great macro tool. Gives you the ability to obtain required dof when shooting macro. Integrated with dfa wr and non wr lenes,allowing it to mount to the dfa lens barrel rather then the filter ring on tip of lens, less stress. For non pentax dfa lenses the flash has adapters for other filter ring sizes. There is a T9-2x adapter available that also integrates with the flash this bumps the max magnification off the 100mm2.8 dfa from 1:1 to 2:1. The 160 has curve flash tubes the compition has smaller strait tubes.

Shopper  Which is it GN 16 or 48?
THOMAS S  The unit has a GN of 16m (meters) or 53'(feet). I have not seen any reference to 48, which I assume would be 48 feet.
