Pentax Flash...or lack thereof..
Nov 29, 2011

Just read this fantastic note on the new Nikon flash SB-910....Where is the Pentax system that folks have griped about for years? Will Ricoh step up and and develop or fix a real SYSTEM for Pentax?

Nikon SB-910:

Additionally, the new SB-910 incorporates a new Thermal Cut-out function, which offers protection against damage to the flash panel and body that can be caused by overheating during continuous flash use. Now, rather than ceasing operation to protect the unit, the flash recycling time is automatically delayed if a significant rise in temperature is detected. For additional durability, heat resistance and ease-of-use, the SB-910 uses new hard-type colour compensation filters for fluorescent and incandescent colour temperature balancing. When using these filters, the flash automatically recognizes which filter is being used and adjusts white balance accordingly on the connected Nikon digital SLR camera. Additionally, the AF-assist illuminator of the SB-910 is compatible with the complete line of AF systems used in Nikon digital SLR cameras.

The SB-910 Speedlight features three illumination patterns (standard, centre-weighted and even), which are designed to match almost any shooting situation when utilizing the Speedlight. The “standard” pattern will cover all conventional, standard flash coverage. The centre-weighted pattern provides larger guide numbers than other light distribution types at the same focal lengths. This illumination pattern is ideal for shooting still subjects such as portraits, in which the light falloff at the image edges can be disregarded. When “even” is selected, the light from the flash will cover a subject from centre to edges without light falloff. This pattern is applicable for shooting group photographs indoors. For coverage with a variety of lenses, the SB-910 Speedlight incorporates a multi-step power zoom range that covers a wide 17-200mm angle of view, and can automatically detect Nikon FX and Nikon DX formats to help select suitable light distribution.
