Question about Vivitar 6000AF for Canon TTL Ring Light Flash

1 Answer

Vivitar 6000CAF for Canon EOS doesn't seem to work on my Canon 30D EOS camera?

I bought this ring flash when I had my 10D camera and I think it worked on it? But when I try it on my 30D it doesn't want to flash when I shoot.

What flash would you recommend for the canon sx50 for around 70-$100?


In this price range you may find used Canon Speedlites like the 220EX or similar. I have found these to work on most EOS E-TTL cameras. As for new strobes you should consider the Bolt VS-260 for Canon. Also you may be able to get a Sunpak PZ42XC for just a little more than 100 or a Speedlite 90EX for under 70 (I use one on my EOS M).

Pilot light not lighting on 420ex speedlite canon flash


This may seem dumb to ask but have you made sure all batteries are fresh (even new ones can be bad), they\'re inserted correctly observing polarity and the contacts are clean in the flash? (You can clean them using a clean, dry pencil eraser and a Q-Tip dipped lightly in alcohol.)



Also, try mounting the flash on your camera, turn both on and reset your camera to factory default settings through your camera menu settings.

What's the trigger voltage of Vivitar DF283?


According to http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html the newer ones made in China or Korea are in the "Your call" range, about 5V to 10V. The older ones can go as high as 600V.

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!

I do have the same unit that I am currently using on a EOS 10D. It works fine for me. It lso operates on my EOS 350D but does not flash off quite bright enough on this camera in very low light.The unit was previously paired with a canon EOS 5 film. You can contact me at a.blast@rocketmail.com for required information.

Vivitar 3200 Flashgun and Canon EOS 400D


Using Vivitar 3200A flash gun on a DSLR is risky for the following reason. The trigger voltage of a DSLR at flash hot shoe that takes it to its TTL (through the lens) circuit is less than 10 volts, it is about 6 to 8 volts in the recent DSLRs. The trigger voltage generated by Vivitar 3200A at full charge flashing is around 180 volts (max). That is a fatal dose for a sensitive DSLR TTL circuit. This high voltage flash gun will work endlessly, the only damage is to the TTL flash circuit. When you attach a TTL flash to the DSLR after using Vivitar 3200A for sometime, your TTL flash will not communicate with your camera. It will be just another ordinary flash without any auto functions. There is a Wein adapter that you can fix b/w your cameral hot shoe and the vivitar flash gun that is said to reduce the trigger voltage that passes into the camera. Try it if you get it. Without this gadget it is better not to use non recommended and non TTL flashes on latest DSLRs.

Can I make the Vivitar 6000AF for Canon work on a Nikon DSLR?


As a manual flash, yes. Just cover the other proprietary pins and leave the centre trigger pin.

As a TTL flash, no. Canon and Nikon uses different hotshoe and flash metering.

For non-digital TTL, I would think Vivitar 6000AF is good?

A more appropriate similar product for DSLR is Suntax DRF14
