Sorta, it will flash, but only in manual mode, all the benefits of having a gee whizbang electronic flash are lost jumping from the film to digital cameras, the film cameras metered the flash off the film plain, and quenched it when enough light had hit the film, they couldn't apparently figure out how to do the same thing for the digital sensor, so the flashes behave differently,  you need a D flash like the 3600 or 5600 to get automatic flash with the KM 5d, 7d, or sony A100 cameras... sorry... if it's any consolation, I'm in the same boat. :(

QUANTARAY QBX-8000xi Flash for SONY ALPHA - 350 digital SLR


Unfortunately not.

This flash is a superb budget alternative to the Minolta alternatives but is only suitable for their film cameras. Sony's SLR's are based on the later Minolta Digital SLR's and they're all incompatible with this flash.

The technical differences between the film and digital Minolta cameras explains why a Minolta 5600HS (for example) had to be redesigned and redesignated as a 5600HS(D). The former will not work on Sony Alpha models, but the latter is fully compatible.

Sunpak pz 4000af for minolta


Hi,

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

How to power up a Minolta Program 3500 xi flash through a Canon S5 IS?


Im sure that model of Flash. Does the minolta flash fit the hot shoe of the Canon?
If it does then I would first try seting the flash to manual mode and adjusting that.
Let me know if the Flash does not fit and I will try to help you from there.
Take Care,
Caleb

I hope that you've said the wrong model.

The right model is DSC-R1 with 24-120 Carl Zeiss' Japan.

Buy the Metz 54MZ with adapter for Minolta/Sony.
