Default Family Dinner with the KM-2000

Here is one of the shots from last night's family dinner with the KM-2000, kit lens and the #200 external flash.

Nice subject...everybody at ease...very well lit.

My KM didn't come with the kit flash...I think that kit was for the American market only (too bad I would of liked the extra flash)...but I do have the Pentax 360 flash.

I have not tried it with my KM, only with my K10D. I'm not enamored with the 360 flash...I much prefer my very old Vivitar 285 HV which I use on my film cameras...but which I don't dare try on my digital cameras for fear of frying their innards.

Nice shot sarah,
but, isn't he a little young to be drinking wine?

Note to Lesmore, you might be able to use that flash on the digitals, just use a volt meter to check the trigger voltage first.
most of the 285's were good to use.

Thanks for the tip...I'll give it a try....voltage check first.

You bet, if I remember correctly, anything under 30vlts is OK. I have several older flash units that I'm using including a Sunpac 522 and a 611.

Nice candid family shot and the flash did well.
