Auto zoom will only work while the build-in wide-flash adapter is slided inside.

In camera menu you must have flash type set to "TTL" not manual. Also auto will only work with CPU type lenses, older film camera lenses do not communicate lens focal length or light metering to camera.

Can I use the Sunpak auto 221d dedicated for minolta on a canon dslr?


No. The flash's trigger voltage is much too high. You could use something like this to isolate the units, however you won't get any of the automatic functions.

Shooting with a Nikon zoom such as 18-200 with a Nikon SB800 flash on a Nikon D300 body. I make an exposure of a person and the result is exceptable and then I zoom to the whole group of five people and it...


Depends on the zoom length. If you check exposure at zoom 18 mm then zoom to (lets say) 100 for the final picture the flash will zoom concentrating the flash power as well; the flash gets stronger. This is all explained in the SB-800 manual. On a zoom such as the 18-200 the more you zoom the smaller the f/stop. You are better off with a zoom that maintains its f/stop through the entire zoom range. That way when you check exposure at 18 mm lets say f/2.8 then zoom in it will maintain the same f/stop. Myself I am not a big fan of zooms especially ones when zoomed change to a smaller f/stop.

I put fresh batteries in my sb 600, i took a few pictures and then the flash was not as powerful and 2 red lights kept flashing on the front, why?


Ok, there are several things to consider. First of all, don't use standard alkaline batteries, the flash needs a lot of power and will drain those quickly. Use either lithium batteries (most powerful non-rechargeable) or invest in NiMH rechargeable batteries. Those would be your best choices for AA's.
Now to your flashing red lights - on the Speedlight flash they fulfill 2 functions, one is as auxiliary ready lights (if used as wireless remote flash) but the blinking in your case points to their other function - it blinks 3 times to indicate possible under exposure of your photos at maximum output level. It's basically telling you that the flash was not strong enough to properly illuminate the scene you tried to shoot. That doesn't necessarily mean the batteries are going flat, but you could simply be out of range of the maximum flash power. Your flash has a guide number of 30 - that means at a zoom head position of 35mm (if your lens is at 35mm) and your ISO is 100, then the maximum range of the flash is 30m (approx. 68ft). If your subject is further away, you would get an underexposure warning (3 blinks of the ready lights).
Hope that helps explain some things.

The zoom on the sb600 wont adjust accordingly to the zoom of my lens


Three things come to mind.
First, make sure that you are in fully automatic mode - easily done by reset (holding down "Mode" and "On/Off" at the same time. If you hit the "zoom" button it takes it out of automatic zoom and cycles through manual zoom settings until you get to auto again.
Second - make sure the camera is in an auto mode - manual mode could stop it from zooming.
Third - make sure that you don't have the diffuser pulled down. That can keep it from zooming also.
Good luck!

Flash zoom function not working


have you checked that the diffuser is pushed fully home in its slot until you hear a click - this diffuser is for close-up work only and dissables the zoom flash

I am using a Speedlight sb-800 on a Nikon D200. I cannot get the Zoom M function to change to Zoom. Any ideas?


Take flash out from hotshoe.
Can you set flash zoom manually?
When using Nikon Nikkor zoom & zooming, does flash zoom or hear motor sounds from head?

Canon Speedlite 430EX zoom issue


You're gonna kick yourself, but here goes, you know that clear plastic wide beam shield on the front, make sure it's fully inserted or else the auto zoom won't work while it's in use, (or the flash thinks it's in use)

I have a 430ex and S5, I don't think the zoom head will move without being mounted on a camera.

If the flash test fires ok, then it should be fine.

Power zoom function


If you have the difuser on the zoom does not work as it assumes you are at close range. Remove the defuser and try again, good luck , Bob.
