Question about Sunpak 266D for Minolta-Ricoh TTL Flash
I just picked up this camera and flash at a yard sale and I haven't a clue how to use it. I can't figure out what everything is on the back, I can't figure out how to turn it on, and I can't figure out how the batteries go in it. I have looked on the net, but I can only find flashes for sale. Where can I find out how to use it??

probably in MANUAL mode only.... my Nikon and Canon's work with the pz4000 (at a save trip voltage I may add) but in a manual mode as mentioned above.....

The Alpha 100 only supports pre-flash TTL and ADI flash control which are not supported by the Sunpak. The flash should ignite, but automatic controlling of its brightness is not possible.
For more Information about the different Minolta/Sony Flash Metering modes cf. http://www.mhohner.de/sony-minolta/flashcomp_mm.php

Firstly, be sure to check flash voltage. Your 30D may accept max 6V so that your camera can be shot if the flash unit has higher voltage than 6V.
1. Use low ISO to keep low noise....around f/8 or more depends on your need and how much DOF you want.....Set the shutter speed around 1/125 to your max speed to stop any movement (your subject or camera itself shaking).
2. Above is set in Manual mode (iso100, f/8 1/125 or 1/250), then you just need to leave the flash to work in TTL mode.
3. It needs battery, the connection is for syncing to trigger and release a proper flash power (in TTL mode).
Hope this help!
