    Default Flash Trigger for Pentax

    I just bought a Pentax 540.

    and wanted to buy Flash Trigger.

    cut its seems that theres NO Flash Trigger for Pentax.
    I search all shops in Funan and Prenisular, but non of them support Pentax
    All for Canon and Nikon and Sony only.

    Can anyone advice me

    thanks

    The seller states it does not support TTL

    So do I set my flash on Auto mode?



    Thanks but is there a model that support TTL?

    there's no wireless trigger that supports p-ttl. it doesn't exist.

    the most common approach is to use the pop-up flash as master to trigger a compatible flash set as slave. this method supports p-ttl.

    since u're using the AF540, this method is ideal.
