Minolta 5600 flash on Sony A200 camera hot shoe problem

I am a volunteer chief in south Louisiana. We had a minolta camera which we lost in the hurricane in 2005. we still have a minolta 5600 flash which we have and does a wonderful job for us. we recently replaced our minolta camera with a sony a200 camera. The hot shoe on the camera does is not made strong enough to mount the flash. It has cracked two times. Please explain to me how we can mount the flash on a bracket to keep this from happening. we have contacted the people where we bought the flash from but for some reason they do not handle the sony product. I have figure out how to use the wireless feature between the camera and the flash but it is had to take a picture holding the flash in the air or have another person hold it . where can i get a bracket and chord to prevent the shoe from cracking again. thanks

it screws into the mount underneath your camera, connects via a cord to your hotshoe mount, and your flash willl then sit next to your camera mounted on this flash bracket.

Is minolta auto 25 compatible with nikon d5200


ABSOLUTELY NOT! The trigger voltage of the Auto 25 is much too high and will quickly fry your D5200.

If you really want to use this flash with your camera, you'll need something like this to isolate them.

Metz flash sony nex camera


Sony NEX 6 has an ATG/Sony's Multi-Interface-Shoe.

Let's hope the Metz 58AF-2 Flash is made for Sony/Minolta, which has an old Minolta's hotshoe.

Contact Sony for the adapter.
Or just buy the Promaster Sony Multi-Ineterface Shoe Adapter, it less than Sony's.

How do i replace the hot shoe mount on a sony a200


You take it to a repair center. This is not a toaster. Its a precision instrument. A modern camera is not user serviceable. Contact Sony on their website to find out where to send it. If you are in the USA then its Precision Camera Repair. Look them up on the internet.
Again, do not attempt this yourself.
One reason is the built in flash. The charging capacitor for the flash retains its power after the camera has been shut down, and can give you one heck of a shock or fry a circuit board that falls down where it doesn't belong.

Minolta sigma ef-430 st ma flash will not work on cactus v2


Of course not. The electronics inside the flash and the mounting shoe have been specifically designed for the Minolta contacts and required voltages.
Actually, you're lucky if you have not damaged the flash by doing that.
Get a flash with a generic one contact shoe for your cactus.

MINOLTA DYNAX 5400 HS flashgun manual


Since Minolta quit the camera/flash biz, Ebay is your best bet for a printed copy.
To get a free pdf file, Go to KM global website.
Select Canada, as yer country.
navigate your way to downloads.
Also check the Orphan camera website.
I have a pdf for one, but I am not allowed to give it to you here.
Try the Minolta groups on Yahoo.

Vivitar 285 HV won't fire


If you know basic soldering, Open the old hot shoe from base
(4 screws).Note down the position of the wires.
Try to fire the flash with shorting two trigger wires,most ly it will fire.
If the springy contact is adjustable do it.If it is not repairable, you can get metal hot shoe from ebay easily.
Caution: metal hot shoe will short circuit 4 TTL contacts (on digital camera) ,so you need to put cello tape at bottom of hot shoe with only center hole.
Hope this solves.

Sunpak pz 4000af for minolta


Hi,

The Alpha 100 only supports pre-flash TTL and ADI flash control which are not supported by the Sunpak. The flash should ignite, but automatic controlling of its brightness is not possible.

For more Information about the different Minolta/Sony Flash Metering modes cf. http://www.mhohner.de/sony-minolta/flashcomp_mm.php

Quantaray QBX-8000xi owners manual


1. No.

Unfortunately not.

This flash is a superb budget alternative to the Minolta alternatives but is only suitable for their film cameras. Sony's SLR's are based on the later Minolta Digital SLR's and they're all incompatible with this flash.

The technical differences between the film and digital Minolta cameras explains why a Minolta 5600HS (for example) had to be redesigned and redesignated as a 5600HS(D). The former will not work on Sony Alpha models, but the latter is fully compatible.

2. I haven't managed to find a manual for this model in my stock room and failed to trace one online.
