Novatron 220 light set


The value of older studio equipment is very dependant on demand. You can get an idea from ebay and if listed craigs list, or some f the big NY houses that sell used equipment. 40 to 60% of new value is a starting point depending upon age and condition. The newer, better it looks the closer to retail you should be able to get - if people are willing to pay it.

Lighting


Do not put the camera in P mode, it must be in M. Also some of the old Novatron units have a polarity issue. If the Camera cannot fire the Novatron, that the plug out of the Novatron in turn it 180 degrees then plug it in again. Sometime on older units this fixes the problem because the voltage polarity is not matched.

Need instruction for Novatron D1000 Lighting Kit


As long as you do not use the powerpack with only one head plugged into it you should be fine. When you plug in a head to the novatron the power pack power is divide between the heads. so 1500 WS divided by three heads is 500WS per head. Only if you find they are contributing to the expose by giving you a warm or amber cast to the backgrounds especially or on the subject.

Syncing Nikon D300 with 600VR strobe system


A wireless system such as the line of Pocket Wizards is a good choice- the are builr to professional standards and are very reliable.

If you wish to hard wire your flash unit to your digital camera, you can purchase a protector wivh reduces the trigger voltage to a safe level refatdless of the age or design of the flasg system you are goinf to use, Under no circumstances should you use this combunation of equipment without a radio triggering device or the protector, The protector attache to the hot shoe of the camera and provides a standard PC synch cord terminal for connecting your flash system to the camera.

You can test the voltage by putting a volt meter set a 250 or 500 VDC across the synch socket in the flasg unit, If the meter deflects negatively just revers the polaity for a correct reading. If there is under 5 volts there is ptobably no issue, however, I still would take no chasces abd use a radio or a protector. If the falsh won't fire with the radio or protector in place, tha probably means tha the synch voltage is very low.

Novatron 240 Flash Kit


First you need to isolate the problem by doing some troubleshooting.
1) try a known good sync cord to determine if the problem is the sync cord and not the power pack.
2) try a known good sync cord with a known good camera to determine that the problem is not in the camera.
3) try your camera with a different power pack to confirm your camera is triggering the power pack OK.
These steps will isolate the source of the problem.

The flash on my camera will not go off, it shows the light in the back ready, but nothing happens to help light up the picture


If your using the hot shoe with an external flash, three things could've happened: battery power in your camera is too low to fire the flash; or check the menu/settings/flash - ext flash settings may not have been chosen by the camera, but you may need to set it first manually; or your hot shoe is not a hot one, but your flash needs to be plugged into a PC outlet on the side of your camera. One last thing - test fire your flash and make sure it works to rule out the camera. There have been occasions where the ready light works on the flash, but it won't fire even after being plugged in. This problem was found to be a loose soldered wire in the flash foot. Another time it wound up to be the flashtube. Hope this helps.

SB600 Works Erratically...


If red light on flash is blinking, flash is charging. In shooting rapidly, sometimes flash will go off even though it isnt fully charged. This can give dark shots. Flash eats batteries like crazy, best to always use fresh batteries for each shoot.

Can't fire properly at 90 degrees


Did you buy this used? Maybe the following problems: wires inside are loose or cold soldered. Flash tube has coated with film coating or flash head(inside)is dirty. Alexander atdlee@netzero.com
