Question about Cameras
Hello Kalaci, First, I would like to thank you for your help with trigger voltage compatibillity for my camera and flash gun.
I wish to buy a wirless trigger but the seller needs to know the trigger voltage of my fuji finepix S9500 and the voultage of my Vivitar auto thyristor 2800.
Would you know the voltage for both or could you tell me where I could find them?
Vivitar 2800 and 2800D are two different flashes. The first is an old flash, having high trigger voltage, which, as you will see, still can be used with your Fuji. The second is a member of modern flashes, having a low-voltage release. Manufacturers specify the highest applicable voltage at the trigger (hotshoe or PC) terminal; at most digital cameras it reaches several hundred volts.I believe, this is, what your seller was asking. As far as I know, Fuji doesn't mention this value in the user manual of the Finepix 9500, but I met reports of people, who called Fuji and asked that and the answer was 400 volts!
So the short answer is: buy any wireless trigger if you have the 2800D, and tell the seller the flash has about 200 volts if your flash is an older 2800.
I wonder if you did already use your flash with your Fuji?
