Question about Achiever DZ260 TTL Flash

Open Question

How do I set up my Achiever DZ260 flash on the camera? I got a Canon 35mm camera at the flea market. The camera works great! But it came with the Achiever flash and I put it on the top of the camera (i think its called the shoe?) and I turn it on and set it to my film speed.... and when I take a picture it doesnt work....

Check the voltage trigger of the flash, if you're under 7vdc. Then you are good to go.

My flash unit seems to be functional, but won't work when taking pictures with the T70.


Is this a canon dedicated flash? Does it fire but you don't get a picture or is most of it blank? Try clean off the hot shoe contact and the dedicated contacts with an ink eraser. It may be that there is gunk/corrosion of the hot shoe contacts on the body. If it is not a dedicated flash you have to set the camera to the flash sync speed on manual. On the model it would be something like a 1/60th of a second. Is the flash hot shoe cracked?

Can i use a Cullmann C28 flash with Canon Eos 400d?


Doubtful. I tried similar with a different brand of flash designed for a 35mm. It worked for about 20 shots then the diodes fried. I've since bought a used Speedlight for my 400D and it works great.

How much is it worth? i found one in my attic and want to sell it.


Most consumer type 35mm film cameras aren't demanding much on the used market and the Canon Rebel X although a great learning camera is an entry level camera. If I were you I'd check out e-Bay completed sales for a more current sale price.

I have a canon eos 1000 35mm with no flash. Works fine, but the LCD in the viewfinder has a large blot on it. Any ideas? Repairable?


Yes, its repairable, but frankly it wouldn't be cost effective to do so. The EOS 1000 is selling for less than $40 for the body on the used market:

and it would cost you much much more to send it off to Canon and have the LCD panel replaced.

Canon A-1 35mm Shutter Issue or not


Hey dentryte,
According to the manufacturer this camera does require the battery to function at all. The usable batteries for this camera are Silver Oxide Battery (6V ) (Eveready (UCAR) No.544, JIS 4G 13, Mallory PX 28; Alkaline Manganese Battery (6V) (Eveready (UCAR) No.537, Mallory 7K l 3). I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you don't have one. I hope this helps!
