I need an instruction manual for a XLF-50 flash unit. Is there one online?


According to a blog I found, this unit is also known as the RD2000 in some markets. You can certainly get a manual for that, it's at the bottom of this page:

Hopefully, you'll recognise the unit as yours.

My nikon d3000 is great. but now when i view my pics there is a flashing in certain areas of the pic. also my flash won't flash. is there something i can do to fix it


This flashing is often an indication that those areas are 'over exposed'. This could be because you have manual settings such as 'EV +1'etc., or 'spot metering' when you took the picture centred on a dark part of the scene. You could check this by setting the camera to automatic to see if it solves the problem. If it does, have a good look through the menus and user guide to see what the various manual settings are.

The flash settings include one where the flash is off, and there is usually a button to toggle between the automatic/off/forced flash/red eye suppression etc.

On record picture smeared like massively over exposed


Make sure the ISO is set on the correct exposure for daylight.. try say 100 or 200 if its set for flash at say 60 nor 30 and you try to use it in brighter or daylight it will overexpose.

When taking pic in sunlight - lcd screen is whited out!!


I think that's normal. I also have experienced the same always when the screen is exposed to sunlight. Try adjusting its brightness or use an anti-glare protection.

D40 compatability with Sunpak auto 144D flash


the voltage on the flash hot shoe contacts (center pin and rail connector) can be as high as 140V DC and this voltage is backfed into the camera through its hotshoe connector. There are adapters that can be bought that isolate this voltage that go between the flash and the camera, but different camera makers have different ratings for the flash voltage. My Vivitar 220 has 122 volts across the contacts from 4 AA batteries! Canon recommends nothing over 6v but Fuji says 60v and others dont say anything. SLR's used a mechanical trigger, modern digi cams use an electronic trigger. Also Digcams use electronic metering for exposure so they dont take into consideration the addition of another flash unless they do a preflash, TTL metering and the flash unit is capable of recharging in about 1/10th second. YOu may have to do some post processing or set the camera on manual to adjust the exposure.

Sunpak softlite 1600A for fz20


According to this site, the Sunpak 1600A is NOT USABLE with the FZ20: http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html The tested voltage of the 1600A is 46.6V, which is WAY above the 24V max specified by Panasonic. Don't even try it...
