    Ok here's a more accurate P-TTL test of Metz vs Pentax. Someone asked for the color diff, so I redo the compare with direct flash.

    Set to 4900K, f4, 1/180s, ISO100, focus on shiny cap.

    Just called, they still have at least 3-4 pieces. $88 b4 GST. $94.16 w/GST.

    Edit: Cheapo flash for strobists
    Vivitar 285HV - 120'@50mm ISO100 - abt US$110 shipped (new)
    Sunpak 383 - 120'@35mm ISO100 - abt US$100 shipped (new)
    Taking these to consideration SB 3000 is actually a gd buy with swirl head, P-TTL (need 100% confirmation) and dummy slave mode^^
    The Sunpak is good one im trying to get that one... it syncs in cactus fora whopping 160sec on others review
    but the sb3000 is a good buy. might get one . do they accept credit cards?

    Never work with cactus, but I have no problem getting 1/180s on dummy optical slave^^ sb-3000 is designed to work on DSLR up to 1/250s, so u might get cactus sync at 1/180s? I'm not sure if they accept CC, kinda drilled into me that go distributor centers like high street center to bring cash.

    Edit: I believe the SB-3000AFP is the same as Sakar DC 952AF/PEN. It had been reported by a Pentax strobist that it works with V2s

    "geruge says:
    I bought the digital concepts 952 af / pen for my K10D. It's completely pentax compatible and works great. I also just bought a sunpak 383 super and a set of cactus v2's for off camera use. I use the sinc cable to the flash so its not so high in the umbrella and so I don't put stress on the flimsy v2 receiver. I have tested both flashes with the v2's and get about 30ft with 100% reliability so far. Another v2 set and a third receiver, along with a second 383 super are on the way.

    Good luck and great shooting. ;-) "

    Cannot lah, I'll go MIA again when I start petography again I normally concentrate on 1 type of forum at a point of time

    Anyway Tumax is HK based and they have the P-TTL cord also.
