Default Pentax K-R Flash

Hi,

I have a Pentax K-R and I have the "Sigma EF-530 DG ST" Flash. I am looking to upgrade the Flash to one that have a High Speed Sync. Any suggestion?

Something that is under $250.

Thanks

Is this a good choice, "mecablitz 50 AF-1 digital". Does it come with High Speed Sync?

That is a very good flash, should support HSS, the canon and nikon one does.

Hi Shoturtle,

I should have listened to you when I first purchased the Sigma and get the one with HSS. Now, I need to sell my old one and get a new one.

Thanks for the reply.

The metz is a higher grade flash then the sigma. Not to fond or sigma flashes personally. Especially for canon. But I have been super happy with metz. And my brother had the metz 48 AF1 for his pentax, and it has been a solid flash that support HSS.
