Canon flash won't pop up


Flash will not pop up automatically if you're in manual mode. Try putting it in the green auto mode, then try again. Still not working? See if the little flash symbol button is on OFF. If so, put it to ON or auto. Should work.

Can i use my vivitar 4600 with my nikon d300s?


Yes. You can use the flash in auto or manual mode by setting the camera to manual shutter speed within the x-sync range and then selecting the aperture prescribed by the flash guide number or the displayed automatic f-stop on the flash. The flash can provide auto exposure with the camera in manual mode, but you need to be aware of the amount of ambient light which will not cause any exposure corrections by the camera in this mode. Another alternative is to select Aperture preferred automatic on the camera and the f-stop shown for the auto flash settings. This will allow the camera to vary the shutter speed but may cause long exposures if the camera is not sensitive to real-time flash readings.

Overexposing in auto modes, low light being reported.


The Auto modes on the 40D weren't very reliable when I ran comparison tests with other models..and systems. In fact I gave up with the 40D altogether! :) The anti-aliasing filter was a joke and the auto focus was....blaaah.

You mentioned you 'reset everything'? Yet it sounds like there may be some residual settings left behind. EG, white balance settings, flash sync speed. You might also want to check the individual presets for LANDSCAPE, PORTRAIT, NATURAL etc... Once you can start afresh, things should start to make sense as you make adjustments. Just remember to keep account of what adjustments you make.

CF (custom functions): are normally reset to factory however some settings remain (white balance adjustments, tonal adjustments etc)

Why is the flash not working on my vivitar 8025


The Vivitar 8025 has the following flash settings: Auto mode , Fill-in mode , Flash OFF mode. Since the cam doesn't have a manual flash setting, check to see if it's set to OFF mode. Or even Fill-in mode (sometimes it barely flashes). Auto mode will only work if needed......


thanks.

Vivitar 283 looks firing but image is dark. when i turn the dial from the yellow to blue it fires but the green light turns on and there is no beep. its weird when i postion the head bounced straight up...


Let's review how the Viv283 should operate, bearing in mind that it was designed for manual cameras.
  1. On the dial on the side, set the arrow to point at the ASA setting you (your camera) is using.
    Example: ASA 100 is one dot below the labeled 125 setting.

  2. Look at the four color segments, purple/blue/orange/yellow. Each is lined up (not necessarily exactly) with an f/stop. Each segment also highlights a maximum distance that can be used.
    Example: at ASA 100, the orange segment lines up with f/4 and allows a maximum range of 30 feet.
    (These maximum distances assume the flash is pointed straight ahead.)

  3. Choose the f/stop you want to use. Rotate the sensor on the front to that color.
    Example: on my unit, the sensor is marked "auto thyristor" and its orange setting actually looks red.
    There is also an "M" setting, for manual (full-power) operation.

  4. Take the picture. The flash head can be pointed wherever you want, straight-ahead up to 90 degrees (I usually used 45 degrees). The sensor will quench the flash as soon as it thinks enough light has bounced back from the scene.
    Example: at f/4, with a 45-degree flash angle and a light-colored ceiling, I could usually count on a bright-enough exposure out to some 15 feet or so.

    If there actually was enough light, the little green indicator on the back will glow briefly. If there wasn't enough light you won't get the green indicator and you should try again with a wider f/stop.

  5. Or...
    just set the sensor on the front to M for manual, and the flash will dump its full output. Then it's up to you (or your camera) to cope with that 120-guide-number output.
Hope that all helps.

Canon 40D


Hey D1ppy,
There are two ways to get rid of shadows behind a subject, but both require you to use a hotshoe mounted flash. The first way is to bounce the light off a ceiling or some other white surface by turning the flash head towards that surface instead of your subject. The second way would be to connect the flash to the camera using a off camera flash cord and hold the flash above your head when your taking the picture, and by doing this you are able to aim where the shadows show up in the image. Bounced flash is what is called soft light and generally is more pleasing light. I of course am assuming the shadows are caused by the built in flash on the camera. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Will a Vivitar 285HV fry my Canon EOS 40D? I'd like to experiment with a Vivitar 285HV as an on-camera hot shoe flash. However, I'm reluctant to proceed because of conflicting reports about voltage...


Personally, I would not try it. While the Canon has a protection system built into the camera, the trigger voltage on the Vivitar is pretty high. I have had good results using a 283 on a slave shoe, you will have to stop down more with the extra light
