Hi all, does anyone know where I can get spare parts for a Pentax AF360FGZ flash unit? I have searched high and low, to no avail.....I need a replacement Hot Shoe mount, the one I have is slowly chipping away, and although it's ok for now, it's slowly becoming less so.

Any ideas anyone?

Thx, Dave.

probably easier to find a second hand unit also badged as a Samsung PEF 36FZF. picked up one of those for 50.
K3 II and the odd lens or 2

My answer was to buy one of these cheap little blocks and leave it as a permanent fixture on the flash. It has another advantage in that it has a socket for a second flash unit - thus avoiding the loss of the stupidly overpriced and ill fitting socket cap on the camera body.

Further to my post I should point out that the adapter shown is the incorrect one! It is the single contact version that I use with my old Vivitar ring flashes.
You can buy the Pentax specific one for about 25 or Chinese versions for about 8.....

Sorry about that
