Quantaray PZ-1 DSZ and Sony alpha 100

Just bought a Quantaray PZ-1 and tried to work it with my Sony Alpha 100. But unless i put it on complete manual, it always fires off at maximum power and completely overexposes everything in its path.
Is the Flash compatible with the Camera at all? Are there any tricks to make it listen to the damn Camera?

Thanks.

As Alphas are digital, they are likely to be set to ADI flash integration which assumes an ADI flash unit. PZ-1 DSZ is not ADI(i think). Your best way to go about it is to swich your camera to a TTL metering mode.

    Sorry for the rush response here. I found that Digital cameras do not have a TTL mode and work on pre-flash only. It seems that a newer flash unit is the way to go. On the side note, there are some digital modules for these flashes sold on the web, and they convert your old flash into digital. I would not bother though. It is to much trouble and compatibility is never a sure thing.

Having the same problem with the Quantaray 7500A and my Sony Alpha 200. I either have to go to full manual or overexposed. I've sent off a few emails to Ritz but still haven't gotten a reply.

I've used the Quantaray PZ-1 DSZ on my Nikon N80 film camera and had no problems. I would like to use it on my digital Nikon D60.


There is no problem with the trigger voltage, which I assume is your primary concern. You may not get all of the features you would with a Nikon flash, but you should be able to use it with the D60 just as you use it with the N80.

Will the PZ-1 DSZ fire remotely as a slave unit?


Go to photo.net for a more comprehensive answer on this unit. But you should have a "slave" setting. May be called an optical trigger. You will need another flash to set it off though.

DOES THIS FLASH WORK ON CANON REBEL XSI?


Yes and no. It will work fine as a manual flash, putting the burden of figuring out correct exposure on your shoulders. It will work fine in the automatic modes on a Nikon camera.

Quantaray makes a Canon version of the flash which will work in the automatic modes on the Rebel XSi.

I hav a Quantaray 9550 with a module to fit a Minolta Maxxum xtsi. Can it be used with a sony alpha?


Yes, it can, but you will likely loose some of features that make the 9550 such a nice flash.
Better bet, contact a dealer for Quantaray and buy the Alpha module.

Will not fire any more


Suggestion: Before to spend any money in this direction, try to clean the electric contacts and be sure that batteries are fresh and fully charged (a voltmeter can help).

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

Quantaray QBX-8000xi owners manual


1. No.

Unfortunately not.

This flash is a superb budget alternative to the Minolta alternatives but is only suitable for their film cameras. Sony's SLR's are based on the later Minolta Digital SLR's and they're all incompatible with this flash.

The technical differences between the film and digital Minolta cameras explains why a Minolta 5600HS (for example) had to be redesigned and redesignated as a 5600HS(D). The former will not work on Sony Alpha models, but the latter is fully compatible.

2. I haven't managed to find a manual for this model in my stock room and failed to trace one online.
