I have a Digi-Slave Dual Mode DSF-Is and wonder if this unit is safe to use as an flash attachment on a Olympus E-510? Now I just use the flash as a slave unit. There used to be warnings that some flash...

This flash (was designed for digital) should be ok with E-510 alough it is not a TTL flash. If u look on top of the flash mount on the E-510 u will see some extra pins these are for TTL communication the camera talks to the flash to let it know it has recieved enough light and extinguish the tube. If u put the wrong flash on the camera u could damage these connections in the camera. I suspect the flash u are suing is not TTL and should be only one pin on the bottom of the flash unit if this is the case u will be ok.Olympus is good stuff I have an Evolt e-300 if u look on e-bay u can find a new TTL flash compatable with the E-510 at a very good price.

Sunpak PZ 4000AF for Canon EOS 35mm SLR body

Canon digital uses E-TTL metering for best flash results, the older Sunpak unit isn't compatible with this, so it is not fully compatible. It may work in manual mode - but won't be as good as a more modern compatible digital flash like the Canon or Metz (eg 58AF1 Canon) versions.

Canon Macro Settings for 100mm lens and Sunpak 12R ring flash

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!

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.

Sunpak ring flash problem

I had a DX-12R for some time several years ago until it was stolen. I loved it. I recently purchased a used 8R and it is fine but I still like the 12R better. Especially the preview light feature. Ok. Make sure the batteries are all good, one bad apple does spoil the whole bunch. Check your cord connections and finally make sure the hot shoe connection is clean. That last one was usually the culprit when I had problems. Note that your hot shoe on your camera could also be going bad. I had a Ricoh that did that, I thought it was the flash. Good luck.
