Hi Guys,

Looking for a bit of advice here, i've recently bought a Pentax K-r and on Saturday I wanted to use my external flashgun (Jessops 280d) but for some reason it won't fire.

I used to use it on the k100d with no problem so automatically thought it would also work on the K-r can anyone tell me if it should work or recommend a cheap alternative as i'm on a tight budget.

Thanks

Jim

Hi Jim, I started out with a Pentax AF 200FG Flashgun, simple but very effective. Mine was second hand and cost me 60.
