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.

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 have a Sunpak pf30x flash (ETTL II for Canon) and a 550d Canon but the flash will not work. the flash works on my Canon Eos 300 film. Help


Many flashguns deigned for film cameras - even really expensive ones - will not work with DSLRs.
I have a perfectly good pentax gun that cost me almost £300. It is fanstastic on my TOTR Pentax SLR but will only blat at maximum power on my Pentax DSLR. I had to spend another almost £300 to buy the new gun that will work with all the bells and whistles on my DSLR.
It looks as though Canon work theirs the same way.

I have a Sunpak PF30x flash and I lost my manual, is there anywhere on the internet where I can download it for free? And also what does the EV Adjust mean?


http://www.sunpak.jp/english/support/download/index.html

EV Adjust is Exposure Value Adjust. It lets you deliberately over- or under-expose the picture for effect.

I need a manual


Google this: canon 400d manual You should find a PDF file you can download. But really, that flash is pretty simple to use. Just stick the camera on automatic and it does its thing.

Metz mecablitz 45 ct 1 and Nikon D-90


The trigger voltage of the 45CL-1 is about 12V, so it should be safe to connect directly to the hot shoe with an adaptor, or to the pc soclet, if the D90 has one. If the D90 is anything like my Canon 40D, which can stand about 30V on the hot shoe, then all the 45CL series will be ok, as they have trigger voltages between 9V and 12V. The 45CT-5 has a trigger voltage of 15V and works well on the 40D. I use 3 different Metz 45 models with my 40D and all work well on automatic, where the flash sensor itself controls the light output.

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.
