Hi everyone

Now that I have the SP with lenses and film the item missing is a flash mount and flashgun with cable.

I would welcome some help with a suitable one please.

Enjoy life

Pentax offered a clip-on "cold shoe" which fits on top of the camera in the normal location, add a PC socket to hotshoe adapter and you could use any Pentax flash. For a period piece though see if you can find a working Super-Lite II, these had a PC lead supplied in a small compartment in the flashgun to connect to non-hotshoe cameras.

Both Womble and I have Super-Lite IIs and there are pictures of them, I think, in the Pentax equipment section. Fully manual though but they certainly look the part, are powerful and cover 24mm lenses.
