SAKAR 370ZX FLASH

Hello, I am trying to find information on the SAKAR 370zx flash. I have one that I used for my older Canon AE=1 program. I would like to use it with my new Canon Rebel EOS XTi. Is this possible? I haven't used this flash is some time. It seems to be working fine. I'm just not sure how to use it properly without my instructions. I was wondering do you have any manuals on this model? Or online instructions?
I would greatly appreciate any information on this matter. Thank you very much.

No. You will need an EX series flash like the 430EX or 580EX. Those designated as EX II will also work.

SOURCE: Flash doesn't work

I found the answer and fixed my flash. Look on http://photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=00ODWf

This will describe how, if you have been using a speedlite alot, than the little tab under the shutter release side of the hot shoe can get bent down thus constantly pressing down (toward the bottom of the camera) the small button which deactivates the pop-up1.gif flash even when the speedlite is not attached. Just bend the tab up a little with a jewler's screwdriver, turn the camera off and on and voila!! Fixed!!! Dan describes pushing the tab down, but on the xti, the tab needs to be bent up to release the flash deactivation switch and fix the problem. Thanks to Dan D on photonet for saving me a service call.

I guess you did the basic thing and see if the flash fires when pressing the shutter button.

I don't know the Rebel itself,but I can suggest a few general things. I will be speculating here for you.

Make sure that in the setup for the flash, that the curtain is in the correct mode. If I remember right there is something about when the flash will fire. Check this in the instruction manual.

Also check the flash sync speed range. If the sync speed is out of range for the flash, it will fire at the wrong time. If you want to experiment, try using 1/60 for a start just to see if it works.

If you call Canon tech support, they will help you.

SOURCE: EOS Utility does not recoganize Canon Rebel Xti

I believe there are 2 modes of usb transfer that you can pick in the camera. They are set somewhere in the menu in the options. If you go through the menus thoroughly you'll find it. One option is for connecting the camera directly to a printer and the other is for computer transfer (there might also be an Auto setting but I don't remember for sure). Make sure that setting is set for computer transfer. If that doesn't fix your problem, re-install or update EOS Utility / ZoomBrowser.

Rebel has no PC Socket.
Just buy a Hotshoe to PC for your QFlash.

Can the SAKAR 27M be used w Canon REBEL EOS 700D?


I'd be careful using this on the 700D before checking the voltage of the flash gun is compatible with the camera. Older flash guns tend to have much higher voltage than is required by modern cameras.

Canon AE-1 program shutter fires when cocked


Unless you are a camera technician, this is a problem that has to go in for repair. The mechanical hold is defective or broken. Please weigh the cost of repair vs buying a used camera
You can buy a used/refurbished AE-1 Program in the $80-$140 range. Call several repair places by looking on the internet, some will give a free repair estimate.

Could the Sakar Dedicated Ittl Flash work For Nikon D60


Probable will not work on the Nikon's hot shoe because the contacts on the Sakar flash gun won't match the contacts on the Nikon's hot shoe.
You can use the Sakar flash gun as a slave flash by connecting a optical flash trigger to the Sakar flash gun and use the Nikon's flash to trigger the Sakar slave flash.

Error 5 on Canon eos 350D


Hi there,

Well first of all you can try a full reset, Pull both batteries out -the normal one, and the date/time one. If your camera is older (>2 yrs), it may be time to replace that battery..... anyway Put a new one in, and then put in the freshly-charged main battery, that might clear the error. If further you have the same problem then something is causing the flash to stick. Press the button and pull gently on the flash. Post comments for more help or information needed.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Flash not working properly


Try setting the shutter speed to 60. The 2000 has 3 different modes. 2 auto and 1 manual. In manual mode the flash is at full power. In the 2 auto modes the flash meters the available light and sets the power. There should be a table on the back that tells you what to set the appeture at based on distance and film speed. On the AE-1 you will have to set the shutter and appeture yourself. It won't work auto like a Canon speedlight will.

Camera malfunctioning in Creative Zone Modes


It sounds like your firmware has become corrupted.

Visit the Canon Support Site and download the latest firmware (make sure your batteries are fully charged before replacing firmware - if the batteries go flat during the firmware over-write operation your camera will be trashed).

Sakar flash


None of old/generic flashes will do. The XT camera is designed to recognize brand flashes and give a "Trought the Lens" light measurement in order to adjust flash output. It is possible to shot in manual mode if you are acquaint with this mode. Another issue is that generic flashes triggers in a higher voltage than the "designed for digital" what is potencially dangerous to the camera circuit.
