Question about Novatron 1000ws Standard Head with 25' Cable Flash
Does the Novatron 600VR battery pack strobe system produce negative voltage of more than 250 Volts through the sync? In the past I have used the 600VR with a film SLR as well as with a medium format SLR with really good results. I would like to use it with my new Nikon D300, but understand that damage can occur if the voltage is too high. Can I use the old sync cord that I used with the film cameras? If not, what wireless system do you recommend for this combination of flash and camera? Thanks so much for any advice you have.
A wireless system such as the line of Pocket Wizards is a good choice- the are builr to professional standards and are very reliable.
If you wish to hard wire your flash unit to your digital camera, you can purchase a protector wivh reduces the trigger voltage to a safe level refatdless of the age or design of the flasg system you are goinf to use, Under no circumstances should you use this combunation of equipment without a radio triggering device or the protector, The protector attache to the hot shoe of the camera and provides a standard PC synch cord terminal for connecting your flash system to the camera.
You can test the voltage by putting a volt meter set a 250 or 500 VDC across the synch socket in the flasg unit, If the meter deflects negatively just revers the polaity for a correct reading. If there is under 5 volts there is ptobably no issue, however, I still would take no chasces abd use a radio or a protector. If the falsh won't fire with the radio or protector in place, tha probably means tha the synch voltage is very low.
