BecRN,

take the camera to a good camera store and try any in your price range, the manual should state the camera's that are compatible. note that many new model flashes do not work on older camera's.

There is not a fuse but there are batteries. Even rechargeable batteries go bad.

Camera and flash combination


You need something like http://www.amazon.com/Wein-Products-W990560-SSHSHS-Safe-Sync/dp/B00009UU18/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370363570&sr=8-1&keywords=wein+safe-sync to isolate the flash's trigger voltage from the camera.

As for getting it to "work properly," bear in mind that the camera/flash combination will not meter through the lens. You won't get some of the more advanced capabilities of a flash designed specifically to work with Minolta cameras. However the flash's automatic features will work.

Is it compatible the Sunpak auto Zoom 344 D THYRISTOR with the Nikon D60


Yes. The trigger voltage on this Sunpak is well within the safe limits for a digital 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.

Canon digital uses E-TTL metering for best flash results, the older Sunpak unit isn't compatible with this, so it is not fully compatible. It may work in manual mode - but won't be as good as a more modern compatible digital flash like the Canon or Metz (eg 58AF1 Canon) versions.

My pics come out half black when I use the X-370 flash


motley45

this happens when the shutter speed is not correct. set the speed to 1/60 sec.
if the X-370 flash is new it may not be compatible with your camera. with the flash turned on it should set the shutter speed automatically to either 1/60sec or 1/125sec. looking in the finder the shutter speed should not change to various amounts of light. if the shutter speed changes with the flash turned on it is not dedicated to your camera.

Sunpak pz 4000af for minolta


Hi,

The Alpha 100 only supports pre-flash TTL and ADI flash control which are not supported by the Sunpak. The flash should ignite, but automatic controlling of its brightness is not possible.

For more Information about the different Minolta/Sony Flash Metering modes cf. http://www.mhohner.de/sony-minolta/flashcomp_mm.php
