Sunpak 344D Pentax K20D dedication

I have a Sunpak 344D dedicated to my Pentax ME Super. I recently purchased a Pentax K20D to be able to use all my manual lenses and am wondering if the Sunpak will dedicate to the K20D and if so, how do I set that up?

Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens has a Pentax mount then it will work with your K20d.

Hi. Will a Vivitar 550FD flash unit work properly with a Nikon D5000 digital camera without doing damage to the camera? Thanks,Arty


The 550 FD came out before digitals. It is fully dedicated(FD) to a type of film camera. Usually this is noted on the back of the flash. CA or C for Canon, MI or MX for Minolta, Ne or NI for Nikon. If its the Nikon dedicated unit, it should not harm your camera, and will most likely work...as a manual flash. You will lose all the neat flash stuff that the D5000 can do.
I suggest you watch Ebay for a Sunpak PZ-30, PZ-40, or a Sigma 430 or 500. The Sigma EF 500 Super will do pretty much everything the top of the line Nikon Flash does, but you can buy it new for half the price of the Nikon unit. All flashes today are dedicated to a certain group of cameras by a certain manufacturer. For example: Canon EOS film cameras or Minolta manual focus cameras.
I suggest you get rid of the 550FD as it is designed for the pre-Autofocus cameras.
Avoid the Sunpak Auto 30DX, the 333, 383, 433, 444 and the PZ 4000/5000 as well as the MZ flashes. These were not designed for your new digital.
Metz also makes some very nice flashes, but they're kinda pricey.

Sunpack 555 inconsistantly fires with Pentax K20


Your strobe is faulty and needs repair at a trained service center. The actual culprit may be the voltage converter circuit that supplies the high voltage to the flash capacitor, or the voltage divider that drives the ready lamp and, at the same time, makes triggering possible.

I have a sunpak 622


Sunpak does not offer dedicated (TTL) module to any digital cameras. The flash can only be used in auto mode, while the camera is set to full manual. The lens has to be stopped down according the working aperture on the flash, correct exposure will be maintained by the built-in sensor of the flash. Fire the flash using a simple hotshoe-to-PC cube if your camera doesn't sport a PC connector. Trigger voltage of the 622 is safe.

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.
