PRECAUTIONS FOR YOUR FLASH UNIT
The electronic circuits inside the flash contain high voltage working parts. Never attempt to disassemble the flash unit yourself. Never touch internal parts of the flash unit if they become exposed from dropping the camera or for some other reason, as there is danger of an electric shock. Do not expose the flash unit to water or moisture. This is to prevent electrical shock.
Do not use the flash near anyone's eyes, as it may hurt them. Be particularly careful with the flash around infants. Never try to disassemble, short or recharge the battery. Also, do not dispose of the battery in fire, as it may explode. Misuse of the battery can cause hazards such as leakage, overheating, explosion, etc. The battery should be inserted with the "+" and "-" sides facing correctly. Remove the batteries from the camera immediately if they become hot or begin to smoke. Be careful not burn yourself during removal.
When using the flash unit off the camera, do not try to attach any metallic object to the electric contacts or to mount incompatible accessories. Otherwise, the TTL auto mechanism may be damaged or rendered inoperable. Use only compatible Pentax accessories. Never use solvents such as paint thinner, alcohol or benzene to clean the flash unit. Avoid leaving the flash unit for extend period in places where the humidity and temperature are very high such as in a car. Be careful not to subject the flash unit to strong vibrations, shock or pressure. Use a cushion to protect the flash unit when carrying it in a motorcycle, car, boat, etc. Shield the flash unit from salty air and water at the beach, splashing liquid of any kind, and rain. When the flash unit is subjected to rain or moisture, wipe it off with a dry soft. Replace the batteries at the same time. Do not mix battery brands, type or an old battery with a new one. It may cause explosion or overheating. Remove the batteries when not using for extended periods. Leakage of fluids may result and cause damage to inside of the flash unit.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
When mounting the flash unit to the camera's hot shoe, hold the portion near the hot shoe bracket to avoid damage to the hot shoe, and do not mount/dismount it by force. If the unit has not been used for an extended period of time, or is being readied for an important shoot, it is recommended that you take a test flash with the test button and test shoot with it. Test flash is also important to maintain optimum performance. Manganese batteries are not recommended for use as they provide a lower number of flashes per set of batteries. Battery performance may temporarily be hindered in low temperatures. Batteries should be kept warm in temperatures below freezing for proper performance. Dark or low-reflectance subjects may result in underexposure. Set the camera's exposure compensation to the + side. Do not attach any accessories having the wrong number of electrical contacts for the hot shoe or grip. Otherwise, TTL auto metering might not work properly. When using the AF360FGZ with SF 7 camera, set the flash mode to Auto flash (A) mode.

The trailing-curtain flash sync and contrast-control-sync will be displayed only when the shutter release button is pressed halfway down to turn on the exposure meter. For slave flash, set the wireless slave mode setting to SLAVE2. (Refer to page 49.)
If necessary, an exposure compensation amount can be set between +1.0 to -3.0 stops in 0.5-stop increments. Cameras other than *ist, MZ-S, MZ-L/MZ-6/ZX-L will display P-TTL but are not compatible with P-TTL. Please use the auto flash mode. (Refer to page 28)
P-TTL and TTL Auto Flash Effective Range
When Using the "A" ( AUTO ) Lens Aperture
Programmed TTL Auto Flash is possible with the AF360FGZ when the Programmed AE or ShutterPriority AE mode is set on a camera. The flash sync speed and aperture values automatically vary depending on the subject brightness as with the camera's built-in flash, making it suitable for daylight sync flash.
When Setting the Lens to a Manual f/stop
When the Aperture-Priority AE or Metered Manual mode is set on the camera, TTL Auto Flash is possible with the desired aperture selected to control the depth-of-field. The slow-speed-sync flash is also possible.

Calculating the Flash Effective Range
When setting the lens to manual f/stop, calculate the guide number at FULL output strength with the use of flash's zooming position and film speed. Divide the resulting guide number by the aperture in use. Thus, the maximum distance is obtained. The minimum distance is obtained in dividing this max. distance by approx. 10.However, if the shortest distance desired is 0.7m or less, the shortest distance will be 0.7m. f/stop
f / 2.8 f/4 f / 5.6 f/8 f / 11 f / 16 f / 22 f / 32
With ISO100 film and a 50mm lens at f/4 q For the zoom position = 50mm, and film speed at ISO100, the guide number is 30. w The aperture is f/4, 30 ( guide number )/4 ( aperture ) = 7.5m ( max. distance ) e 7.5m ( max. distance )/10 = 0.75m ( min. distance ) Thus, flash effective range is approx. 0.75m - 7.5m.

TTL AUTO FLASH
With the AF360FGZ, TTL Auto Flash is possible with all autofocus cameras (except *ist, MZ-S, MZ-L/MZ6/ZX-L), 645N, 67II, Super A, LX and 645 cameras. P-TTL Auto flash mode is set automatically with *ist, MZ-S or MZ-L/MZ-6/ZX-L. See page 22.
Turn on the camera. Turn on the flash unit. Press the flash mode switch until the indication [TTL] displays on the LCD panel. Set the sync mode switch to Leading-shuttercurtain-sync, Trailing-shutter-curtain-sync (refer to page 57), or Contrast-control-sync (refer to page 35) according to the subject. When using an FA J, FA,F or FA645 lens, set to the [A. ZOOM] mode.When using a manual focus lens, set to the [M.ZOOM] mode by pressing the flash zoom button. Make sure that the subject is within the flash effective distance display and Ready lamp lights up before taking pictures.
When a proper exposure has been made, the auto check confirmation signal appears. ( the [ ] symbol blinks several times in the camera's viewfinder and the [TTL] on the LCD panel blinks for two seconds. ) When the auto check confirmation signal does not appear, it indicates that the sufficient amount of light has not reflected from the subject. In this case, decrease the flash-tosubject distance.
When using AF360FGZ with SF 7 camera, set the flash mode to Auto flash (A) mode. The flash and AF spotbeam will not work when the flash mode is set to other than Auto flash mode. To enable to use TTL Auto flash, Manual flash and AF spotbeam functions with SF 7, please consult PENTAX service centers which are listed on the this operating manual for the modification.
When the camera is set to manual exposure, manual flash can be set to suit the subject distance and aperture. The manual flash output can be set to 1/1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, or 1/32. Manual flash mode can be used with all cameras (except SF 7, refer to page 27).

Set the flash zoom position to match the lens focal length. With an autofocus lens, [A.Zoom] will be set automatically.
The distance up to the subject distance shown on the bar graph is possible. Check that the flash is ready, then take the picture.
Guide Number ( GN )
Guide numbers indicate flash light intensity. The larger the number, the farther you can reach with your flash. From the guide number, you can easily obtain the proper aperture setting required for an optimum exposure. Aperture [f-number] = GN/flash-to-subject distance [m] Example : GN33/3m = f11 With autofocus cameras (except the SF series) attached with an FA J, FA or A lens and the 645N, 645NII cameras, a bar graph displayed on the LCD panel will indicate the approximate flash range.
If the flash zoom position is 35mm, subject distance (between the AF360FGZ and subject) is 3 m, and film speed is ISO 100, the calculation will be as follows: q With flash output [1/1], the Guide No. will be 25 (according to the Guide No. table). w Aperture = Guide No. 25 / Subject distance 3 m = 8.3 Approx. 8 (f/No.)
Set the lens aperture.
HIGH-SPEED SYNC MODE
When the AF360FGZ is used with the *ist, MZ-S, MZ-L/MZ-6/ZX-L, shutter speeds faster than X-sync speed will still enable flash synchronization. Since there is no sync speed limitation, high-speed sync is effective for fill-flash in daylight. High-speed sync mode will be P-TTL auto flash. As can be seen in the table on page 34, as the shutter speed becomes higher, the guide number becomes smaller. Accordingly, it should be noted that the distance for taking pictures would become shorter.
Turn on the camera. Set the exposure mode other than the Programmed AE. Attach the flash unit to the camera's hot shoe and turn it on. Set the sync mode switch to high-speed sync [ HS ].
Check the flash range by looking at the bar graph on the LCD panel. Check that the flash is ready, then take the picture.
Please read the camera operating manual for camera operation. High-speed sync is possible with the camera separated from the AF360GZ (wireless). (Refer to page 44)
The flash will be set to High-speed-sync mode and [ HS ] will be shown on the LCD panel only when the shutter speed exceeds X-sync speed. To set exposure compensation, press the [S] button so that [0.0] blinks. Then turn the adjustment dial to set the exposure compensation amount. Press the [S] button again to stop the blinking. The exposure compensation amount can be set from +1.0 to -3.0 stops in 0.5-stop increments. Set the flash zoom position to match the lens focal length. With an autofocus lens, the [A.Zoom] mode will set it automatically. With other lenses, use the ZOOM button in the [M.Zoom] mode to set the zoom position.
High-speed Sync Guide Number [For ISO 100]
Zoom Position 85mm 70mm 50mm 35mm 28mm 24mm 20mm Shutter speed 250 16.0 14.7 13.4 11.1 9.8 9.4 6.12.7 11.6 10.6 8.8 7.7 7.4 4.9.5 8.7 7.9 6.6 5.8 5.5 3.6.9 6.4 5.8 4.8 4.2 4.1 2.5.1 4.7 4.2 3.5 3.1 3.0 2.4.3 3.9 3.2.6 2.5 1.7
When the AF360FGZ is used in combination with the camera's built-in flash, twin flash photography is possible with the output ratio of the light intensity controlled. The ratio of flash light intensity between the built-in flash and the AF360FGZ flash unit is 1:2. This method of photography is for the AF360FGZ separated from the camera. (Refer to page 57 on using the AF360FGZ separated from the camera.)
Turn on the power switch. Set the sync mode switch to the contrastcontrol position [ ] Adjust the zoom position according to the lens in use.
[Example] Double the guide numbers for ISO 100 when using ISO 400 film. Lens zoom position = 85mm, shutter speed = 250 Guide Number for ISO 400 would be = 32.
With an autofocus lens, the [A.Zoom] mode will set it automatically. If the AF360FGZ is much closer to the subject than the camera's built-in flash, use the [M.Zoom] mode to set the zoom position to a shorter lens focal length. Otherwise, the flash coverage may be insufficient causing a dark periphery in the picture.
Place the flash unit at the desired location. Set the zoom position with Manual [M. Zoom] Turn on the camera and ready the built-in flash. While pressing the camera's flash function button, turn the select dial until W appears. Check that both the AF360FGZ and built-in flash are ready, then take the picture.
In the P-TTL mode, the flash amount adjustments [1/1,2/3,1/2,1/3] and flash exposure compensation [-3.0~+1.0] are possible. (Refer to page 46) The camera side must be set to the wireless (W) or the AF360FGZ will not fire. The built-in flash can be used as other than main flash, refer to the camera-operating manual for setting the custom function. When using with *ist or MZ-S, test flash can be performed before shooting to confirm that the flash fires in wireless control mode, refer to the camera-operating manual for setting the custom function.

I AF360FGZ Channel Setting
I Setting function
Slide the setting switch up. Press the illumination button [LIGHT] for 2 seconds or more. SLAVE1 will be displayed. Each time the Select button [S] is pressed, it will switch in the order of SLAVE1 SLAVE2 SLAVE1. Press the illumination button to end the setting.
2 seconds or more
The channel setting is to prevent confusion of wireless signals between the *ist, MZ-S or MZL/MZ-6/ZX-L and AF360FGZ being used by other people. Set to a channel out of the 4 that is not being used by others.
With the AF360FGZ, you can tilt the flash head up or down to aim at the ceiling or wall to bounce the flash before it reaches the subject. Doing so creates softer light and shadows to make the picture look more natural. However, bouncing the flash will decrease the flash intensity by the time it reaches the subject. Therefore, use the P-TTL or TTL auto flash mode with bounce flash to ensure a correct exposure. The maximum upward bounce angle is 90 (click stops at 45, 60, 75, 90), and the maximum downward bounce angle is -10. At the 0 angle, there is a locking mechanism. So when you want to tilt the flash head up or down, hold down the lock release button on the side of the flash head, then tilt the head up or down. During bounce flash, [ ] will be displayed on the LCD panel. Also, the effective flash range will not be displayed. When the bounce angle is set to downward at-10 the effective flash range will blink.
WIDE-ANGLE PANEL AND CATCHLIGHT PANEL
P-TTL, TTL Auto Flash Photography
The amount of reflective light will change according to the condition of the reflective surface, angle, and distance. However, with TTL auto flash units bounce flash photography can be relatively easily done. Confirm the flash confirmation indicator in the viewfinder or the flash units flash light confirmation display after taking pictures. The AF360FGZ has a built-in wide-angle panel and catchlight panel at the top of the flash head,which can be pulled out and used as necessary. The catchlight panel and wide-angle panel is pulled out at the same time. When using only the catchlight panel, return the wide-angle panel to the storage area first. Catchlight Panel
Manual Flash Photography
The amount of light during bounce flash photography is greatly affected by the condition of the reflective surface, therefore test pictures should be taken beforehand or the changing the exposure and taking several pictures may be recommended. When taking color photographs, if the reflective surface for the bounce flash is colored, the picture will be affected by the color and unless this is intentional, a white surface should be used. Bounce flash photography is greatly affected by the surrounding conditions. A photography manual and other references are recommended.
1. Wide-angle panel
This expands the flash coverage for a 20mm lens (645 is 35mm, 67 is a 55mm lens). When the wideangle panel is used, the flash zoom position will be set to 20mm.
A catchlight is a reflection of a light source in the eyes. It usually appears as a white dot and makes the human subject look more lively. Set the bounce flash angle to 90 and get close to the subject before taking the picture.
MODELING FLASH/TEST FLASH
Before taking the picture, firing a modeling flash helps you to see how shadows are cast on the subject. When used with the *ist or MZ-S, modeling flash is also possible with wireless (Refer to page 37). (Refer to the camera operating manual for the camera settings).
AF360FGZ feature a built-in red spotbeam projector to assist the autofocus system in dim light and lowcontrast conditions. When using the flash with autofocus camera in dark conditions, the spotbeam will be projected automatically depending on the ambient lighting conditions. With the sync mode switch set to [S.B.], the AF360FGZ can be used exclusively as a focusing aid in dim light. Using the AF360FGZ Spotbeam Exclusively as a Focusing Aid 1. Set the main switch to the [ON] position. 2. Set the sync mode switch to the [SB] position. 3. Set the camera to the autofocus mode. 4. Press the shutter release button halfway down. The AF spotbeam will automatically be projected lights up indicating that you are ready to shoot. The AF spotbeam does not work in bright light conditions. If the In-focus indication does not light up in several seconds, it means that the subject is hard to autofocus. In this case, use the manual focus mode to focus on the subject. To change the composition, raise your finger off the shutter release button and press it halfway down again to recompose the picture. When using the AF360FGZ's built-in AF spotbeam, the AF spotbeam built into the camera will not operate. The AF spotbeam on the flash unit works accurately only when mounted onto the camera's hot shoe. The AF spotbeam does not operate accurately when the bounce flash is used. The flash does not fire when using the AF360FGZ spotbeam exclusively as a focusing aid. The AF spotbeam does not work with SF 7 camera, refer to page 27.
Slide the setting switch down [yellow dot]. Check that the flash is ready, then press the MODELING button. The flash will fire continuously for one second. After firing the modeling flash, slide the setting switch up [white dot].
I Test flash
Check that the flash is ready, then press the TEST button. The test flash can be operated.
