Hey Guys -

I too had a similar situation and was told to contact Ritz Camera (I Googgled it). I also contacted the following company and finally got a manual:

Apparently, my flash, QUANTARAY PZ-1 POWER ZOOM Flash unit , was sold under another name, PZ4000 Af. Hope this helps. If you have the same unit as me, conatct me at CTBucky@tvcconnect.net and I'll be happy to send you the manual that was provided me.

I now have a Nikon D80. I have a National Flashgun Model PE300SWG Can you advise me if this 'gun is safe to use with the D80?Nikon tell me that as long as the trigger flash voltage is o--250volts it is...


A flash trigger voltage in the 250V range is fine for most film cameras, but not for most digital cameras. The PE-300 has a trigger voltage in the 33V range, which I (and most others) would consider much too high for the D80.
BTW, "National" is a brand name used by Panasonic.

What flash for Nikon D80


No, the FT1700 is not TTL compatible which is what the camera wants to use. The Promaster 7500EDF is compatible in all modes with the Nikon D80

Vivitar 283 with new Nikon Digital camera


the nikon D80 has a 250 volts safe range and i have the same issue but readin on the internet i learned that yo can now the voltage of your flash with a voltage metter ond the hot soe.

Vivitar 283 has diferent ranges of voltages depending on the year of fabrication so older ones can achieve 300 volts and earlier have 230 volts so the best is to get a vivitar 285hv for about 75dollars or a safe sync for about 55dollars, you can find all on ebay or other brouser the safe sync converts up to 400 volts to a safe 6 volts that are yust the normal voltage for digital flashes.

Nikon D80. Vivitar 4600 Flash unit


That particular unit is probably not a good choice for the D80 because the trigger voltage (the electricity which flows from the flash through the camera circuits to fire the flash) is 19.5 volts, according to http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html - this could possibly damage your camera electronics.

You don't have to stick with Nikon brand Speedlights, but get a modern flash which says it is I-TTL compatible for Nikon.

I'd like to know if I can use a Vivitar 2800 flash in a Nikon D80 safely. I've been using it, without any problem, but read that maybe this flash can be dangerous to the D80 and I want to be sure. Thanks.


Yeah Rolo, I read that too. I would put a slave unit on your Vivitar, and the Master would be the pop up unit on the camera. Not only will you save risking your camera with the voltage of the flash, but your pictures will be better too. I use Aperture Priority on the camera and AUTO on the Vivitar set to the same aperture
Best regards,

John

Nikon D80 using Bower AF 724AFN


I also purchased a Bower 724AFN to use with my D80, and experience the same problems. Received confirmation from Nikon that this flash unit is not compatible with the camera. I then purchased an SB-600 flash, and haven't looked back. It's worth the extra money for this high quality unit; fully compatible, and compliments the TTL features of the D80. I'll never deviate from original Nikon accessories again.

The 60CT-4 was not made for digital cameras.
It does TTL on film not on CMOS or CCD sensor.
