OPERATING MANUAL
AF360FZ_540FGZ.book Page 1 Friday, December 20, 2013 6:11 PM
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Auto-flash AF540FGZ II/
AF360FGZ II.
In addition to easy daylight sync photography with P-TTL auto,
the AF540FGZ II/AF360FGZ II also allows wireless P-TTL
auto photography and high-speed sync in combination with a
digital single lens reflex camera or lens-interchangeable single
lens digital camera.
Please read this operating manual before using this flash unit.
This operating manual applies to AF540FGZ II and
AF360FGZ II.
The illustrations used in this operating manual are those
of AF540FGZ II.
For Use with the Following Models:
645D, K-5II, K-5IIs, K-5, K-30, K-50, K-500, and K-r
When using the flash unit with the models listed above, the camera’s
firmware needs to be updated to the latest version in order to use the
LED beam as the AF-assist spot beam. (Refer to page 53.)
This update corrects the focus position deviation caused by
the difference in wavelengths between the AF-assist spot beam
of this flash unit and existing flash units.
The LED beam cannot be used as the AF-assist spot beam when
using the flash unit with the digital single lens reflex cameras released
before the K-7 and K-x. Set OFF for AF Spot Beam (Sb) in the function
menu. (Refer to page 52.)

n Cautions Regarding Batteries
l This flash unit uses four AA alkaline, lithium, or nickel metal
hydride batteries. Do not use any other types of batteries.
The flash unit may not be able to operate correctly or
demonstrate sufficient performance, or the flash unit itself
may generate heat, depending on the type of batteries used.
l AA alkaline and lithium batteries themselves are not
rechargeable. Also, do not dismantle the batteries.
Trying to recharge or dismantle the batteries may cause
an explosion or leakage.
l When changing batteries, do not mix batteries of different
types or capacities, or from different manufacturers.
l Do not insert the batteries with the positive (+) and
negative (-) terminals the wrong way around. Incorrect
insertion may lead to an explosion or fire.
l Battery performance may temporarily be hindered in low
temperatures. Batteries should be kept warm in
temperatures below freezing for proper performance.
l If you do not intend to use the flash unit for an extended
period of time, remove the batteries. Leaving them in may
cause damage to the flash unit due to leakage etc.
4
l Do not short the batteries or dispose of the batteries in fire.
Do not disassemble the batteries. The batteries could
explode or catch fire.
l Remove the batteries from the flash unit immediately if they

2. Taking Pictures
Using the Flash Modes
2
This flash unit has the following flash modes. Select the mode
best suited for the subject.
P-TTL Auto Flash (P-TTL)
A pre-flash is discharged before the main flash so that the
multi-segment metering sensor can measure the subject’s
distance, brightness, brightness difference, backlit condition,
etc. The data obtained is incorporated to set the output of the
main flash. This mode obtains more accurate results than with
the conventional TTL mode. Refer to page 25 for instructions
on how to use this flash mode.
Manual Flash (M)
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, 1/32, 1/64,
1/128 or 1/256. Refer to page 26 for instructions on how to use
this flash mode.
Multi Flash (Multi)
A series of flashes can be discharged in a specified interval.
The flash output, number of flashes, and flash frequency can be
set respectively. Refer to page 27 for instructions on how to use
this flash mode.
Wireless Mode (P-TTL/Manual)
In wireless mode (P-TTL), you can take photographs with this
flash unit separated from the camera. If the camera is not
compatible with the wireless function, you can also take
photographs wirelessly in slave flash mode. (Refer to page 48.)
Refer to pages 28 and 40 for instructions on how to use
wireless mode.

and the Ready lamp is lit. Then take a picture.
• The correct flash output is obtained in P-TTL mode only
when the flash unit is used with autofocus lenses.
• If necessary, an exposure compensation amount can be
set in the range of -4.0 to +2.0 by 1/3, or 1/2 step. (Refer
to page 18.)
• When the camera’s exposure mode is other than manual
(M), bulb (B) and flash X-sync speed (X), even if you set
the flash mode of this flash unit to manual (M), it will
automatically switch to P-TTL while the camera’s
exposure meter is operating (while information is being
displayed in the viewfinder). (With the 645D, if the
aperture of the lens is in a position other than A, the flash
mode will switch to TTL.)

Using the Sync Modes
This flash unit has the following sync modes. Select the mode
best suited for the subject.
Leading Curtain Sync Mode
This is the most commonly used sync mode. In this mode, the
flash is discharged at the instant the first shutter curtain
completes its travel. You can use this mode with the shutter
speed set to the X-sync speed or slower. Refer to page 31 for
this sync mode.
Trailing Curtain Sync Mode
In this sync mode, the flash is discharged at the instant the
second curtain begins its travel. This mode will freeze the
subject with a blur appearing after the subject under a slow
shutter speed condition. Refer to page 31 for this sync mode.
High-speed Sync Mode
This sync mode will enable flash synchronization with shutter
speeds faster than the X-sync speed. Since there is no sync
speed limitation, high-speed sync is effective for fill-flash in
daylight. Refer to page 32 for this sync mode.
Contrast Control Sync Mode
This sync mode enables you to photograph with multiple flash
units, utilizing the difference of the light intensity of each flash
unit to optimize the shadow of the subject. The ratio of flash
light intensity between the flash unit set to this sync mode and
the other flash unit is 1:2. Refer to page 34 for this sync mode.

information is transferred between the flash unit attached to the
camera and one separated from the camera, before these flash
units are discharged.
1 The shutter release button is fully pressed.
2 The flash attached to the camera emits a small control flash
(relays the flash mode of the camera).
3 The separated flash unit from the camera emits a pre-flash
(verifies the state of the subject).
4 The flash attached to the camera emits a small control flash
(relays the flash output amount to the separated flash unit).
• The flash attached to the camera will emit a pre-flash
once more after this to relay the flash duration time when

n Bounce Flash
With this flash unit, you can tilt and swivel the flash head 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. Bouncing the flash will decrease the
flash intensity by the time it reaches the subject. Therefore, this
function is effective when photographing in P-TTL mode at
short distances. The bounce angle can be set to the following
angles.
Rightward: 0°, 30°, 60°, 90°, 120°, 150°, 180°

P-TTL Auto Flash Photography
The amount of reflective light will change according to the
condition of the reflective surface, angle, and distance. Check
the flash output in the LCD panel of this flash unit when taking
pictures.
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 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.
n AF Spot Beam with LED
This flash unit features a built-in white spot beam projector of
LED to assist the autofocus system in dim light and
low-contrast conditions. When using the flash with autofocus in
such conditions, the spot beam will be projected automatically
depending on the ambient lighting conditions. This function is
activated only when the camera is set to autofocus.

3. Appendix
Flash Effective Range
n Calculating the Flash Effective Range
When setting the lens to manual F/stop, calculate the guide
number at full flash with the use of flash’s zoom position and
ISO. 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.
3 10. However, if the minimum distance obtained is 0.7 m or less,
the minimum distance will be 0.7 m. Refer to page 58 for the
guide number table.
Example:
With an 85 mm lens at F/4 and sensitivity at ISO100
1 For the zoom position 58mm and sensitivity at ISO100,
the guide number is 54.
2 54 (guide number) /4 (aperture) = 13.5m (max. distance)
3 13.5m (max. distance) /10 = 1.35m (min. distance) Thus,
flash effective range is approx. 1.35m - 13.5m.
* The numbers used in this example are for K series (APS-C).

645D
DA645, D FA645, FA645, A645
Q series
Q Mount Lens
n 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/stop) =
GN/flash-to-subject distance (m)
• Depending on the camera and lens you are using, the
effective flash range may be displayed. (Refer to page 57.)
• The flash effective range varies depending on ISO, lens
aperture in use, and/or the zoom position (flash coverage
angle). Keep this in mind especially when you are using
a variable aperture zoom lens.
