Thanks for the find, i was just looking for a flash bracket this morning also. I dont have a lot of experience withflash brackets, whattype of sync cord would i usefor a K10d and if you know where i might find a decent price forone. Thanks

sync cords are expensive. the pentax set at B&H was 108usd a couple years ago. i think promaster makes one for 50usd. don't order this till i get mine and see if it'll do what it should. save the link tho.

The Promaster works fine. I have had one for over a year and used it on both the DS and K10 with no problems.

I just got a used Pentax set (3' coiled cord) from KEH, and it's lighter and more flexible, but works the same. sooner or later I'll get around to building a longer cord (which is what I got this for anyway).

Last time I looked, KEH had another Pentax setup of components used, but their Pentax used inventory changes from minute to minute.

scott,
hope you don't mind but how much were the 3 pieces from KEH ??

If you got the K10D and either Pentax AF540FGZ or Sigma EF500DG Super you won't need a cord as you can operate wireless

Hi Roy,

I assume that you were asking what I paid. I copied and pasted from the confirming e-mail because I was getting confused swapping screens back and forth.

OFF CAMERA SHOE ADAPTER F (AUTO FOCUS) Grade: Excellent Price: $31.00
HOT SHOE ADAPTER F (AUTO FOCUS) Grade: Excellent Price: $16.00
F5P EXT CORD (AF500FTZ, 400FTZ, AF240FT) Grade: Excellent Price: $17.00

Yours were a better deal, but I was happy with @ 40% off retail.

Scott

scott,
i quite agree. that is what i was speaking of. 40% is a great savings off of retail.

received this today. quite a bit of plastic but for 18usd what did i expect. it'll suit me just fine for now. only thing i don't like is that the flash height is not adjustable when you shoot in vertical. recommend it? for the price--yes.

I've been using an ALZO Flip Flash Bracket that I once saw an event photographer use. Been very satisfied with it's compact size, firm grip, adjustable flash height and versatile Camera flip platform...all for about $75. Here is the link if anyone is interested
