The Cullman 25 CB needs 3 AA batteries. The upper part of the back with the dial is shoved up to open the battery case.

How do the batteries come out of a vivitar 102 flash


This is a wonderful flash unit that I had the privilege to own many years ago. The battery door is in front of the hot shoe. Slide it forward or in the direction of arrow and allow it to swing down. Four AA batteries should fall out or slide in depending on whether there are any already there.

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 Speedlight SB-50DX with Canon EOS Rebel Xti


It is not possible to use the Nikon SB-50DX directly on a Canon EOS Rebel camera. The Nikon flash gun hot shoe contacts do not match the Canon hot shoe contacts.
You can use the Nikon as a slave flash gun with a PC flash cord that matches the Nikon's flash contacts then connect the end of this flash cord to a flash trigger. The Canon's flash can then trigger the Nikon flash gun via the flash trigger.

Camera Canon Rebel XSI not recognise flash 430Ex. The shoe looks OK and contacts on Flash the same


Clean the Hot Shoe and make sure there is no sulfur layer or dirt. MOst of the time its happens for Sulfur layer and not proper connection with flash shoe and camera shoe. Make sure all this and let me know. Also make sure the battery of the flash are fully charged and thats turn on mode.

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.

Vivitar 285 HV won't fire


If you know basic soldering, Open the old hot shoe from base
(4 screws).Note down the position of the wires.
Try to fire the flash with shorting two trigger wires,most ly it will fire.
If the springy contact is adjustable do it.If it is not repairable, you can get metal hot shoe from ebay easily.
Caution: metal hot shoe will short circuit 4 TTL contacts (on digital camera) ,so you need to put cello tape at bottom of hot shoe with only center hole.
Hope this solves.

Switch from film to digital cameras.


I also own a Vivitar 285 that i used with my Canon F1 manual 35mm camera. Most older cameras before the advent of digital, had a hot shoe on top of the camera, or like in my case, the hot shoe went over the rewind knob. I also had to plug in a power cord from the 285 flash foot and the cameras PC connection in order for the flash to work on some other cameras. The Canon Rebel XTi has a TTL (through the lens) hot shoe usable with Canon's own EX flash units. You can buy a "hot shoe to PC connector" if the TTL camera hot shoe doesn't work, but be extremely careful, the only problem that exists with the older manual flash units was the trigger voltage is as high as 200+volts which would fry digital camera hot shoes. I tried my unit with a Wein flash trigger device on the PC cord of the flash and my Canon D60 with it's own flash. All shots were overexposed and washed out highlights.  Here's a copy of the hot-shoe review:h The EOS 400D's hot-shoe can be used with Canon and third party flashes (although sync only on most third party units). The hot-shoe is E-TTL II compatible. Compatible flashes include Speedlite 220EX, 380EX, 420EX, 430EX, 550EX, 580EX, Macro-Ring Lite, MR-14EX, Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX and Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2.  The Canon Rebel XTi doesn't have a PC socket to plug in a manual flash trigger cord which common sense tells me there is no provision to step up the voltage to trigger manual flashes - so my answer is this combination is not a good idea on a Canon Rebel XTi. Hope this helps.

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.

Auto Function Failed


It could be a communication error between the flash and the camera. Check the shoe foot for any damage or stuck pins. All of them must make proper contact with the hot shoe on the camera to get full auto/TTL, same for the shoe of the camera, bent? dirty contacts?

Synv Flash to camera with no hotshoe


Buy a small slave unit that attatches to the flash bottom.  Use the pop up flash on your camera set to the lowest power.  The slave unit will detect your cameras flash and fire the flash with the slave unit at the same time.  I am doing this with this same flash myself with fairly nice results.
