Sca 346/2AF M don't recognized on Nikon D40 like TTL

Film Cameras were NIKON TTL Nikon Digital Cameras are I-TTL. These two systems are not compatible. Film cameras did the metering in real time. When enough light struck the film the flash was turned off. With I-TTL the flash fires a quick flash and the image is quickly analyzed and the flash fires again to take the photo. With digital it is delayed and it is NOT in real time. The camera only looks at a few pixels to make the analysis fast. I hope this helps

Sunpak PZ 4000AF for Canon EOS 35mm SLR body

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.

Flash compatibility

According to what I read the sunpak dx-8r is, with the right module, compatable with digital SLRs. Check with B&H photo to get the right module.

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.

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.

External flash problems

Sounds like the external flash is being triggered by the pre-flash.

On the D40 set the flash mode to manual. On the F65 set the flash mode to Standard TTL.
