Hoya Corporation Pentax Imaging System Division is pleased to announce the launch of the Pentax AF160FC dedicated auto macro flash. This new accessory flash unit is particularly designed for advanced close-up applications using the automatic exposure-control system of Pentax digital SLR cameras. The P-TTL auto flash system of the Pentax AF160FC macro flash constantly assures the proper exposure level, by measuring the flash’s pre-discharge with the camera’s image sensors and assessing the subject’s lighting condition with the camera’s multi-pattern metering system. Due to the user-friendly operation with a single control dial on the back panel users can easily change flash-modes and discharge-level adjustments.
