SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Is the Sunpak auto 144 D compatable with my Canon

This is a yes and no answer. I personally would not use his flash on any of my digital cameras due to not knowing the "Trigger Voltage" one shot out of this could fry the flash circuit board of my camera.
The flash will not TTL or i-TTL with the new flash systems nor will it synchronize properly. However yes you can use this flash as a slave (using a electronic photo cell as a trigger) it will fuse a full burst power and you need to adjust it near or away from the subject to adjust the amount of light. It can prove a real pain but it will flash just not from the camera unless you use a special WEIN accessory to restrict the trigger voltage BUT the WEIN is over $100.00 so why not just get a flash that work with the camera. You would need a Canon EX type flash something like the Canon 420 EX II will be fully compatible with the new T2i.

You don't have to worry about a memory effect with lithium-ion batteries.

Before anyone can tell you whether a Sunpak flash would work with a digital camera, you'll have to tell us the model of the flash. You can try checking for yourself at

Is a canon rebekt2i compadable with a sunpak555


The trigger voltage is a bit on the high side. According to this list, it's "your call." If you want to be absolutely safe, use something like the Wein Safe-Sync.

Flash zoom head does not properly track zoom lens position


That's the sort of problem which will occur with third-party supplier products.

You don't give any useful details regarding how inaccurate the tracking is, but accurate tracking is not usually critical. Check your flash photo results. Are they fine? If so, no problem.

In any case, if the error is affecting your images then there is absolutely nothing you can do yourself to fix this. Your only choices are to either return the flash for a refund or exchange (other units will likely be the same) or to contact SunPak for advice, but they'll likely try to blame your camera, and Canon will clearly say that they cannot be responsible for equipment they didn't design.

The only sure way to get a fully compatible and accurately tracking flash is to buy the expensive Canon model. You pays your money and you takes your choice.

Will it work with digital camera , there's one on ebay and seller has a film and dosent know if it will work on a Digital camera.


Yes and no.
These old flashes were designed long before digital cameras were out. Even before AF cameras were out. With tinkering in the different modules, they were made compatible with most brands, including contact placement, voltages, etc. right up through the first 2 EOS AF film Canons. Then they redesigned them for AF film cameras and then again for the Digitals. I suggest you sell the 433 and get a Digital Sigma or Sunpak. It will not harm your camera and will have many more features.

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.

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
