Re: What is the trigger voltage?

The trigger voltage can take a maximum of 40v. We do not recommended the use of strobes with a higher volage without a voltage regulator or a sync filter.

Can I use a Sunpak MG-1 (10+ yrs. old) with a Pentax K-5 II


The voltage across the points when fired is very high on old style flashguns if you try this on a modern digital camera you may fry the electrics in the camera. Get a flash gun that is compatible with your camera Have look at the Yongnuo range.

What external flashes can be used for canon cameras?


Any current or recent Canon flash unit will work fine. Most current or recent third-party flashes will also work, though you may not get all of the features you might with Canon units.
Older flash units designed for film cameras tend to have a higher trigger voltage. Using such units on new digital cameras can damage the camera. Here is one list of flash units and their trigger voltages.

Hi there, i have a Nikon D90, i have just come accross my old Vivitar 4600 flash unit and wondered if i could use it with my D90. Thanks for any help you can give, kind regards Cheryl.


It's your call. The 4600's trigger voltage is right at the upper limit of tolerance for the D90. It's probably safe, but I personally wouldn't risk a $1000 camera to save a $100 on a flash.

Can I safely use a Canon 199A hotshoe flash with my new Nikon d3100 camera. I don't know the voltage limit of the camera.


Yes. The trigger voltage of the Canon 199a, rated by Canon at 6.0V, is low enough to be safe with new digital cameras.

I have a Vivitar 285HV flash and I'm wondering if the firing voltage is low enough to use with a Canon Rebel Xs digital camera?


According to Vivitar, the 285HV has a trigger voltage of 12V, which should be safe for use with modern digital cameras.

The flash will not work at all on my sony cybershot 7.2 megapixels digital camera. how can I fix this?


I doubt that you will be able to fix this because it involves good experience to open the delicate camera unit and probe the electronics inside. I would suggest that you consult your nearest camera service centre or the Sony centre. However if you are competent, then you will require good tools to open the camera delicately, look into the flash section for the voltage when the circuit is triggered, the High voltage should develop on the invertor section and charge the capacitor. If no trigger then the control selection IC could be faulty. Hope you do accordingly. Good day

I have studio light KF-150 can i use this kit with my nikon d40. If so how to connect them


The D40 does not have a wireless trigger like some of the other Nikons. However, most studio flash units have a mode which will trigger off of the camera flash just by sensing the light from the flash unit. You could also put the remote cable that comes with the studio light on the hot shoe of the D40. I found the KF-150 studio light for sale, but I can't find any manual or technical specs on it. You need to make sure the unit doesn't have a trigger voltage that's too high for the D40, but if it's for sale now it likely is okay. Just look at the manual for the light and the D40 can compare the external flash trigger specs.

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.
