Pentax 540FGZ (first generation) Flash
Houston, TX (United States)
A gently used 540FGZ flash (first generation). This flash supports TTL as well as PTTL, so it will work with your film cameras as well as your modern digital ones, if that's of interest. (On a digital newer than than the *ist, it will just do PTTL.) I haven't used this flash a ton but it's been satisfactory for me when I have. I acquired it as a temporary replacement for a broken flash I needed for a shoot and intended to sell it after; I've kept it nearly 2 years and not really used it much since then, only in the rare instances I've needed a third flash. It is time it finds a better home.
No problem with any of the modes I've used. A couple of segments on the LCD have burned out (this flash went into a pool long, long ago, and has since been fine since I disassembled it and dried it out). It's very powerful and works great (it is quite large, however). Swivel and pivoting head.
There's some cosmetic blemishes and assorted battle damage on it but nothing major or objectionable. A corner on the hot shoe mount, which is plastic, is chipped off, but this doesn't make it any harder or easier to attach the flash to the camera.
Included Accessories:Carrying case (soft, kinda loose)
Domestic shipping (USA) is included in the price. For international shipping, I will subsidize the cost of shipping up to what domestic shipping would cost and you will have to cover the rest. I will calculate that number before the purchase is finalized.
International buyers: I will only ship to a Paypal confirmed address. I will not accept payment from you and then ship to a friend of yours in the USA for him to forward on. You are welcome to have a friend pay me with his account and verified Paypal address and then I will ship to him. What he does with it after that is between you and him--the transaction will be between him and me, then--and all risk is assumed to be yours once domestic delivery is received. I am, however, happy to ship it to your non-USA address on your Paypal account. Please check about customs fees and duties beforehand.
For those in the Houston area, local pickup can be arranged.
