Re: Sync switching voltage

No, the E-10/20N has a built in filter that protects the camera from high switching voltage.

Hotshoe and sync cable will not fire strobs. However, if I connect the sync cord via my SB800 the strobe will fire.... Help :D


What strobe are you using besides the SB800? Probably the best solution is to use a hotshoe extender for the mystery strobe (like an SC-15), and then set the SB800 in SU-4 mode (i.e. fire when any other strobe around it fires).
Sounds like the mystery strobe isn't triggering correctly with the sync signal that the body is giving through your adapter.

I purchasing this flash from b & h and want to know if it will sync with my studio lights slave function so both flashes will be fired at the same time? I figure I'll have to use the camera in manual...


Presuming you bought a shoe-mount flash for your Sony A900 and set the camera and flash to manual so there's no pre-flash to prematurely trigger your strobes, and presuming your studio lights have built-in optical slaves, you should be all set.

Can I use my old auto thyristor 550FD on my new Nikon D90 DSLR


No. The high trigger voltage in your old unit will damage your D90 for certain.

You need to get a newer flash (US=strobe) designed for digital cameras but don't have to stick to Nikon's overpriced offerings. Metz are excellent and have a high resale value as you can change the dedication model to suit different manufacturers.

Turning the flash off


Set the mode dial to Camera (normal) then by pressing the Up button on the control pad, you may switch between the different flash settings. The settings are:
  • Forced flash (lightning bolt)
  • Slow synchro (bolt plus SL) - this is forces the flash to strobe out of sync so a dark background can be lit up.
  • No flash (no bolt)

Does the DiMAGE A1 support any external flash including studio light?


Yes, it does. It is usable with any external flash using sync cord to sync terminal. (sync voltage: below 400V, correspond to antipolarity)

You also may have a faulty hot shoe adapter or pc cord. Check them with an ohm meter, or with an old 35 mm camera. Or just short out the hot shoe contacts with a piece of metal and see if the strobes flash.

5-pin TTL connector for external flash


The 5-pin TTL connector is designed to control the Olympus FL-40 dedicated flash unit (p/n 200596). To use the FL-40 with these cameras, the optional Olympus FL-CB01 cable (p/n 200 664) and FL-BK01 flash bracket (p/n 200 666) must be used. The 5-pin TTL connector can also control a PC Sync flash or strobe system by using the optional FL-CB04 flash cable (p/n 200 661). Since this type of flash/strobe is non-dedicated, the photographer will need to manually match the flash output with the camera.

Studio Strobe not firing with Coolpix


The Coolpix line of cameras require a "tip positive" sync connection to an external strobe unit (when using the Nikon AS-15 Flash Sync Adapter). On some external Studio Strobe units the sync polarity is easy to change because of the type of plug: On this type of connector simply turn the plug around and insert it with the male pin connectors in the other holes. Other types of connectors (such as the standard "phono" plug) are not generally changeable by the user. If the Coolpix does not fire an external strobe check with the strobe manufacturer for sync polarity info.

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.
