SOURCE: Flash does not work on D 80 Nikon

You will need to upgrade your flash. The salesman was incorrect. Here is Nikon's answer on external strobes: NikonUSA

SOURCE: Sunpak Auto zoom 3000 thyristor

r-sensor to plug in accessory remote sensor for use instead of the fixed one on the front. This allows flash to mount to the side with the remote sensor on the hotshoe. The other socket that has the interlock with the power switch is for a high voltage input (500V input!) from a special mains powered adapter for continuous power and faster refresh instead of using the batteries.

SOURCE: Will my sunpak PZ4000 flash trigger voltage harm

The Sunpak PZ 4000 and 5000 were made for film cameras. I have one for my EOS film cameras. It works just fine. I know this series of flashes was not made for the digital cameras. It likely will not harm your camera if the flash is designed for your camera brand. But some functions will not work.
For example, do not use a flash for Minolta on a Nikon.
You risk damaging your cameras electronics or frying the flash.
Get their PZ 20, PZ 30, PZ40 or PZ 42X for your digital camera.

Will sunpak 622 flash work with Nikon 5200?


You will need a "Hot shoe to PC connection adapter" to connect the PC sync cord to your camera

Will a sunpak 544 aoto flash work with a nikon D3000? dont see a way to connect the two


The 544 connects to a camera via the PC cord (in this case "PC" has nothing to do with personal computers). The D3000 doesn't have a PC port, so you have to use something like the AS-15. The AS-15 mounts onto the hot shoe on top of the camera and provides a PC port.

Can i use sunpak auto 30 DX thyristor to nikon d7000?


According to this list the 30DX's trigger voltage is borderline for use with digital cameras. You may be able to use it with no ill effects, or it may fry your camera. It depends on the particular unit.

I would like to use a sunpak 622 super with a sync connect to the hot shoe. Is the voltage too high for my nikon D 70 DSLR My e -mail is ml1089h@stx.rr.com


According to the list at http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html , it's your call. The flash's trigger voltage is right on the border. Depending on the individual camera and flash, it may or may not be safe. Personally, I wouldn't risk it without something like the Wein Safe-Sync in between to buffer the current.

I have sunpak pf30x fash unit for canon camera.but i need to use it for nikon D90.how can i do it? is ther any converter units or hot shoe unit


No. The PF30X is a dedicated unit, specifically for the particular brand of camera. A Canon unit, such as the one you have, will not work in auto mode on a Nikon camera.

Sunpak 383 problem


Try to trigger it by shorting Center of shoe mount and the side terminal with a small wire.If it is firing the flash is ok.
If not there is open connection in the sync jack ,due to repeated inserting of sync chord.The springy part inside is not going back to its normal position.
You can fix it your self by opening it(adapter only)
.If you are new to this take a photo of the wiring immediately after opening the shoe adapter to see the position if any wire breaks later on.
Do not give up .383 is great flash

D40 compatability with Sunpak auto 144D flash


the voltage on the flash hot shoe contacts (center pin and rail connector) can be as high as 140V DC and this voltage is backfed into the camera through its hotshoe connector. There are adapters that can be bought that isolate this voltage that go between the flash and the camera, but different camera makers have different ratings for the flash voltage. My Vivitar 220 has 122 volts across the contacts from 4 AA batteries! Canon recommends nothing over 6v but Fuji says 60v and others dont say anything. SLR's used a mechanical trigger, modern digi cams use an electronic trigger. Also Digcams use electronic metering for exposure so they dont take into consideration the addition of another flash unless they do a preflash, TTL metering and the flash unit is capable of recharging in about 1/10th second. YOu may have to do some post processing or set the camera on manual to adjust the exposure.

Sunpak Auto zoom 3000 thyristor


You can use the Sunpak on a bracket with a "slave trigger" and fire the slave with the Nikon's pop-up flash. I do the same with a SunPak 3600 Auto Zoom. Just remember not to have the red-eye feature operating. Those little slave triggers are only a couple of dollars and I already had few brackets.
