Question about Sunpak PZ40X II TTL Flash

2 Answers

Sunpack pz40X II flash - compatible with Nikon D40?

I ordered the flash, being told it was compatible with "all nikon TTL" cameras.

When I got the flash, the box indicated it was compatible with "D70, D70s, D2X, D2Hs, D2H, D100".

It seems to work right only intermittently with my D40. It does correctly register the focal legnth of the zoom lense...but sometimes pictures are dark (even when flash is "ready" and aimed directly at the subject); sometiimes the whole subject is not illuminated.

Might I have a defective unit, or is the flash not fully compatible with my camera? Thanks.

TTL Flash compatable with pentax K-7


To let a flash work in TTL mode the camera and flash must be from or made for the same brand. Like Metz for Nikon, the Through The Lens measuring of the light, will only work with Nikon camera's. If the Vivitar 850 was compatible with Nikon, you only can use it in TTL mode with a Nikon. If you want to use it on another camera, you have to set the flash and the camera to manual. (sync speed is not allowed to be shorter tan the manual of the camera says..)
The hot shoe should have the same connection. most brands do have their own hot shoe. And never use an old flash or speed light in a digital camera, because with the old ones the high voltage can pass through the hot shoe to the electronics in the camera, damaging the camera.

The D40 is a low end camera, but before you discard it, I would contact the closest Nikon repair depot (see the Nikon website for the location) and ask them for a repair estimate. You will then be able to decide if it is better to have it repaired or replace it with a newer model.

Is a Quantaray QF30 compatible for a Nikon D40 camera?


I bought this flash on craigs list today for about 30 dollars. I did research and as long as the flash you buy is a nikon HOT SHOE mount it will work. (Look on the bottom of the flash) it will say Nikon i-ttl. I am using it on my D40.

According to what I read the sunpak dx-8r is, with the right module, compatable with digital SLRs. Check with B&H photo to get the right module.
