Most brands of camera's do have own hot shoes for the flash light. That is because they al have a different protocol for starting and stopping a flash, when the camera should measure the amount of light coming back. (TTL or through the lens)
And perhaps, to keep costumers to their own brand?
I found my Nikon commander is capable to trigger my canon flash too, but only to start it not to stop. so the flashes accept commands from more than one brand.

Can I connect a METZ 45 CL-1 to my CANON D600


Yes, this is the way the flash can be used with the contemporary digital cameras. The camera has to be set to Full Manual mode (in point of the exposition), Exposure Time to 1/100 sec (or the shortest exposure that still assures full opening of the shutter). Aperture on the camera must suit the working aperture on the flash, also ISO speeds must match. The computer in the flash measures the reflected from the subject light and quenches the flash, creating the correct exposure. Mecamat sensor, having narrower reception angle and a sight, helps in achieving the correct illumination even on a relatively small subject. Sync voltage of Metz 45CL1 does not make harm to any digital camera, so you can use even the cheapest hotshoe-to-PC adapter available at many camera shops or you can buy one online. No need to spend much on sophisticated adapters.

Connection to Rolleiflex SL2000F SLR


I checked out a SL2000F that had good pictures on eBay. I see a standard hot shoe on the side of the camera. That being said, neither a standard shoe connection nor a pc outlet will give you TTL on the Metz. TTL is Transistor to transistor logic (or for camera store people, through the lens) A sensor that reads the light from the actual plane of the shutter is required to allow the Metz to give TTL operation. It will work on the Auto setting, but the Rollei does not have the sensor as described.

Is it possible to use the Cobra Auto Thiristor Auto 250, with my Nikon D7000


NO!!!
Using this flash with your Nikon will likely damage the camera.

If you really want to use this flash, you need to isolate it from the camera using something like this: Wein Safe Sync Hot Shoe to Hot Shoe High Voltage Sync Regulator SSHSHS

My flash unit seems to be functional, but won't work when taking pictures with the T70.


Is this a canon dedicated flash? Does it fire but you don't get a picture or is most of it blank? Try clean off the hot shoe contact and the dedicated contacts with an ink eraser. It may be that there is gunk/corrosion of the hot shoe contacts on the body. If it is not a dedicated flash you have to set the camera to the flash sync speed on manual. On the model it would be something like a 1/60th of a second. Is the flash hot shoe cracked?

Compatibility


Just look to the connector on the hot Shoe. Most brand have their own connector. Canon is different from Nikon and Kodak and and and.
In the early days a speed light had only one point in the middle and the outside was the return. Today every speed light has more connection points, and a factory own protocol.

Syncing Nikon D300 with 600VR strobe system


A wireless system such as the line of Pocket Wizards is a good choice- the are builr to professional standards and are very reliable.

If you wish to hard wire your flash unit to your digital camera, you can purchase a protector wivh reduces the trigger voltage to a safe level refatdless of the age or design of the flasg system you are goinf to use, Under no circumstances should you use this combunation of equipment without a radio triggering device or the protector, The protector attache to the hot shoe of the camera and provides a standard PC synch cord terminal for connecting your flash system to the camera.

You can test the voltage by putting a volt meter set a 250 or 500 VDC across the synch socket in the flasg unit, If the meter deflects negatively just revers the polaity for a correct reading. If there is under 5 volts there is ptobably no issue, however, I still would take no chasces abd use a radio or a protector. If the falsh won't fire with the radio or protector in place, tha probably means tha the synch voltage is very low.

Pentax me super camera


Hey judyrosebudd,
You should be able to use any flash that is not dedicated to another camera manufacturer. Even though the manufacturer lists this camera as a dedicated flash unit it still has the sync contact in the center of the hot shoe mount, which is all that is required to operate a all manual flash. This being said a dedicated flash should provide much more advanced options and simplicity of use. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
