Question about Canon PowerShot EOS D60 Digital Camera

Studio Paul Buff and Sunpack 622 strobes will not fire...

Hi, I use this camera quite a bit in my studio and the other day noticed that some of the images were coming out dark. I had it hooked up to Paul Buff Ultra wired remote and the flashes kept going off repeatedly. I disconnected the D60. Quickly checked over and grabbed my D10 to finish session of 2 year old twins. I shoot on manual. After client left I put the camera in different modes and exposures were fine. I just noticed that the socket on the camera is a little loose. Could the socket have a short or need replaced and any idea on the cost? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Hi Coolguy, Thanks for all the info. Actually I have a Fuji S20 Pro that has the CCD problem. Figures 2 cameras going in less than 2 months.
    I think I will call the Toll free number for repair on the D60. It could be checked over & cleaned while its in the shop. Would you recommend I change to a wireless set up? If so which remotes would you recommend

    Hi Ginko,
    I have tried 4 different cords that work fine with my other cameras so thats why I think it has to be the connection in the socket. Is there a hot shoe device that will work on the D60, that I can plug my sync cord in to bypass the pc socket?

Hi,

As you said the images are coming out black.

1). Bad or defective CCD. and/or

2). shutter not working.

in the first case the only solution is the replacement of the CCD.
Please click HERE

And in the later case sticking of shutter blade, non functioning of shutter blade will cause the problem. This can be rectified by sending it to some repairer.

Here are the contact details you can find the near service center located in your area:

Goodluck..

    Here in England the socket is replaced for about 80 pounds, which is over $150 I think it will be the same in US. in any case try first a replacement cable.

    In theory any short in the camera may cause weird effect as random images coming out dark. In any case you need first to exclude all other possible causes. Test your camera in any possible way to ensure that really there is a short in the sockt befor changing the socket.

More like some gunk in the connection, than a short, which will usually make it not work at all.

    also, make certain that you have the proper connection device. from the repetitive flash sequence, that suggests that perhaps you have a bad connector device. maybe not a perfect match, eh?

I purchasing this flash from b & h and want to know if it will sync with my studio lights slave function so both flashes will be fired at the same time? I figure I'll have to use the camera in manual...


Presuming you bought a shoe-mount flash for your Sony A900 and set the camera and flash to manual so there's no pre-flash to prematurely trigger your strobes, and presuming your studio lights have built-in optical slaves, you should be all set.

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.

Canon D60 not focusing when hooked up to studio lights


1) Being connected to your studio lights is interfearing with the camera's electronics, disturbing its ability to focus. Does it focus if you're not actually connected to the studio strobes, but are trying to focus using just the modelling lights? 2) There may simply not be enough light for the camera to focus. Canon sells a red LED AF illuminator that sits in the hotshoe (can't remember the part number). That may help. Also, if your modelling lights are set to "tracking" or "proportional", try setting them to fixed full power. You've probably got the strobes set several stops lower than full power, so "tracking" modelling lights rob you of several stops of focusin light. Or try a faster lens.

Sync switching voltage


No, the E-10/20N has a built in filter that protects the camera from high switching voltage.

My exposures come out inconsistent


You cannot use the E-10/20N in Program Mode with studio strobes. Studio strobes are not compatible with TTL (Through The Lens) metering. You will need to set the Mode Dial to Manual Mode. Exposure is determined by flash output , ISO and the distance from flash to subject. Proper exposure can be determined with a flash meter.

Studio Strobe not firing with Coolpix


The Coolpix line of cameras require a "tip positive" sync connection to an external strobe unit (when using the Nikon AS-15 Flash Sync Adapter). On some external Studio Strobe units the sync polarity is easy to change because of the type of plug: On this type of connector simply turn the plug around and insert it with the male pin connectors in the other holes. Other types of connectors (such as the standard "phono" plug) are not generally changeable by the user. If the Coolpix does not fire an external strobe check with the strobe manufacturer for sync polarity info.
