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.

SOURCE: can i hook up my Canon Rebel XTI EOS to my Quatum Qflash Model T2

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

I have it all set up, but nothing is happening. I'm using a Yashica FX-D 35 mm and a SAKAR multi-dedicated 78MD flash attachment.


You don't say which camera you're using. The flash and the camera may not be compatable

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.

Kodakcom go aiosupport


Although it is badged Kodak, support for that product is from a company called Sakar.

However, it's unusual to need drivers for memory card readers. The drivers are actually part of the core driver packed supplied for your computer's chip set.

Try installing your motherboard chipset drivers.

Can I use one nikon d5100 with one sakar mc zoom 80-200 No. 803489


If your lens has a Nikon mount then yes, you can use it on the D5100. You'll have to switch to the Manual exposure mode and you won't get any exposure help from the camera's light meter.

Older Vivitar Flash for new Canon SX10


Not compatible.
Get slave triggers and use them as remote flashes, or buy another film camera.
It seems Vivitar no longer is in the flash business. Get a Sigma or Sunpak digital flash for your SX10

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.

Problems with older Vivitar flash and Pentax K-100 DSLR?


That is true. Older flashes used sync voltages as high as 250V. That much extra juice can quickly fry newer cameras. You can use a Wein Safe-Sync between the camera and the flash to electrically isolate the two.

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.

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.
