Sunpak 622 Auto Pro has 6.5 - 8.0 V trigger voltage.
It should be OK for Nikon D6

Sunpak does not offer dedicated (TTL) module to any digital cameras. The flash can only be used in auto mode, while the camera is set to full manual. The lens has to be stopped down according the working aperture on the flash, correct exposure will be maintained by the built-in sensor of the flash. Fire the flash using a simple hotshoe-to-PC cube if your camera doesn't sport a PC connector. Trigger voltage of the 622 is safe.

SOURCE: Will my sunpak PZ4000 flash trigger voltage harm

The Sunpak PZ 4000 and 5000 were made for film cameras. I have one for my EOS film cameras. It works just fine. I know this series of flashes was not made for the digital cameras. It likely will not harm your camera if the flash is designed for your camera brand. But some functions will not work.
For example, do not use a flash for Minolta on a Nikon.
You risk damaging your cameras electronics or frying the flash.
Get their PZ 20, PZ 30, PZ40 or PZ 42X for your digital camera.

According to the list at http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html , it's your call. The flash's trigger voltage is right on the border. Depending on the individual camera and flash, it may or may not be safe. Personally, I wouldn't risk it without something like the Wein Safe-Sync in between to buffer the current.

I have Sunpak 622 Super Pro Handle Mount TTL Flash. Would it be compatible with a Pentax K50?


Before you attach it to your camera you must check the trigger voltage first, never use an old flash unit until you check the trigger voltage with a multimeter, most old flash units have a huge trigger voltage that will damage your camera.
Very simple to check the voltage on that Sunpak 622, turn on your volt meter and set it to about 200 volts DC, turn on your Sunpak flash and apply the RED lead to the bottom contact, apply the Black lead to the side of the hot shoe and look for the ground, usually a small metal piece on the side. Now look at the meter, if it shows a voltage of 6 volts or less then it is safe to use on your camera, if voltage is higher, say 12 volts or more, don't use it. A high trigger voltage will certainly mess up your camera in the long run. Even if it has a safe voltage of 6 volts or less, you will only be able to use that flash in Manual Mode, the newer cameras will not sync or recognize an old flash unit.
I have an old Vivitar flash unit that I can safely use on my Canon XTI because the old vivitar has a trigger voltage of 5 volts, safe for all newer digital cameras.

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 auto 622 pro system flash. I put this on the shelf about twenty years ago and it was working perfect. I now want to use it with my Olympus E520. The flash seems to work OK except the auto...


For something of that age, repair may not be an option due to lack of spares. May be better to replace it. Be wary of using it on digital anyway, as the high trigger voltage may fry the camera's internal electronics.

IS THE VOLTAGE FROM A SUNPAK 622 SUPER SAFE TO USE WITH A NIKON dD 70


I have read reports of this working. To be safe you can cover everything but the center pin with electrical tape, or you can buy surge protectors for flashes to protect your camera.

Sunpak 622 Recycle Time w/ Batteries vs AD-26


I had the same problem - 10-11 secs on 240VAC. My solution was to get the Quantum Turbo SC for $450. It yields ~3sec recycle times. This pack for $150 should play nicely as well: http://www.adorama.com/JTMBPN.html?searchinfo=jtl+lancer+battery+pck It was out of stock at the time. The Sunpak TR2000 is $250, but it's Ni-Cd while the others are NiMH. There are other HV packs capable of powering the 622 w/ the fitting cable like Lumedyne IIRC. The AD-26 is still useful for non-action photography. The fastest time I saw posted is 1.5 secs, but it's a DIY job (search 'sunpak 622' on flickr). HTH,

D40 compatability with Sunpak auto 144D flash


the voltage on the flash hot shoe contacts (center pin and rail connector) can be as high as 140V DC and this voltage is backfed into the camera through its hotshoe connector. There are adapters that can be bought that isolate this voltage that go between the flash and the camera, but different camera makers have different ratings for the flash voltage. My Vivitar 220 has 122 volts across the contacts from 4 AA batteries! Canon recommends nothing over 6v but Fuji says 60v and others dont say anything. SLR's used a mechanical trigger, modern digi cams use an electronic trigger. Also Digcams use electronic metering for exposure so they dont take into consideration the addition of another flash unless they do a preflash, TTL metering and the flash unit is capable of recharging in about 1/10th second. YOu may have to do some post processing or set the camera on manual to adjust the exposure.

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.
