Achiever DZ265

Check availablity: eBay.

The Achiever DZ265 (also sold as Berotron 2500D and Praktica DZ265) is a flash that can be used for dedicated and/or OTF TTL function with compatible cameras and also works as an auto thyristor flash. The flash also has a manual zoom function.

Manual mode may work (full power only), but in some cases, you may have to isolate or remove the “extra” TTL control pins from the hot-foot to stop the camera from being confused by the legacy OTF TTL protocol.
