Question about Fuji MX-600 Digital Camera

602Z Flash

OK... I got me a 602Z. As you probably know, it has a hot shoe right! Now, I went into my local Jessops (Camera store) and asked the nice lady behind the counter about getting an external flash for it. Her reply shocked me, She said that there weren't any flash's that would be compatible with the 602Z, Even Fuji dont do one. All of the flashes would fit, they just wouldn't flash when I pressed the shutter! Now, After leaving the shop in complete shock, I started to think... well why do fuji put a hot shoe on the thing then??? So my question is to you lot, Is there a flash that would be compatible with a 602Z or is Fuji insane and sticks hot shoes onto cameras just to make them look pretty

I use a Sunpak 383. The Vivitar 285HV is more powerful but it is heavier and I don't think it swivels like the Sunpak.
From time to time they both both pop up on ebay.
The Fuji 602 was way ahead of it's time and is still used by many today.

Well she is right in one way and wrong in another. The Fuji 602 does not have flashes that it will work TTL metering with. This is due to the single design posted on the hotshoe. But the big advantage with the 602 was its ablility to handle about anyflash you pop on it. It has been unoffically released many times, but most say the 602 can handle a trigger voltage of 500. Which is WAY more than most (5-8). There are alot of good flashes and manufactures that are out there, and with a quick search you will find MANY... Just stay below 500, actually 100 to be on the safe size and you will be ok. You stated it would not fire? Did you go into you menu system and set it for external flash? Its all way over on the left side, i think the first option. Other than that, you should be good to go. Good camera, hope you enjoy it.

Test button- fire, but when attached to hot-shoe (camera or trigger) doesn't fire. Why?


Check the hot shoe contacts and make sure they're clean. If that doesn't help, place the flash on your camera, turn both on and reset the camera to factory default through the menu settings. Also make sure the hot shoe on the flash and the camera isn't damaged. Have you tried the flash on another camera?

Clean the Hot Shoe and make sure there is no sulfur layer or dirt. MOst of the time its happens for Sulfur layer and not proper connection with flash shoe and camera shoe. Make sure all this and let me know. Also make sure the battery of the flash are fully charged and thats turn on mode.

Which adapter do Ineed to connect my nikon d90 with metz 45 cl-4 (non digital )


What do you mean by adaptor?! You will need to by a hotshoe adaptor with a hole that talkes the old style cable plug from your Metz lead and away you go! Try jessops. (As long as you have the lead from your Metz!?

Flash not working


Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead.

Wanting to use add on flash


The "error 99" is a general error on Canon cameras meaning "something's gone wrong and I don't know what to do about it". If you get them all the time, the camera is effectively dead and must go back to Canon for a service repair (circa £175 if I remember correctly).

If the error 99 only happens when you try to pop up the flash, but otherwise the camera can take good pictures, then yes, an external flash unit could well solve your problem. With an external flash on the hot-shoe, the internal flash is completely bypassed and the camera will never try to pop it up.

I recommend taking your camera to a shop such as Jessops and ask to try out a flash gun to be sure.

Switch from film to digital cameras.


I also own a Vivitar 285 that i used with my Canon F1 manual 35mm camera. Most older cameras before the advent of digital, had a hot shoe on top of the camera, or like in my case, the hot shoe went over the rewind knob. I also had to plug in a power cord from the 285 flash foot and the cameras PC connection in order for the flash to work on some other cameras. The Canon Rebel XTi has a TTL (through the lens) hot shoe usable with Canon's own EX flash units. You can buy a "hot shoe to PC connector" if the TTL camera hot shoe doesn't work, but be extremely careful, the only problem that exists with the older manual flash units was the trigger voltage is as high as 200+volts which would fry digital camera hot shoes. I tried my unit with a Wein flash trigger device on the PC cord of the flash and my Canon D60 with it's own flash. All shots were overexposed and washed out highlights.  Here's a copy of the hot-shoe review:h The EOS 400D's hot-shoe can be used with Canon and third party flashes (although sync only on most third party units). The hot-shoe is E-TTL II compatible. Compatible flashes include Speedlite 220EX, 380EX, 420EX, 430EX, 550EX, 580EX, Macro-Ring Lite, MR-14EX, Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX and Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2.  The Canon Rebel XTi doesn't have a PC socket to plug in a manual flash trigger cord which common sense tells me there is no provision to step up the voltage to trigger manual flashes - so my answer is this combination is not a good idea on a Canon Rebel XTi. Hope this helps.

Sunpak 383 problem


Try to trigger it by shorting Center of shoe mount and the side terminal with a small wire.If it is firing the flash is ok.
If not there is open connection in the sync jack ,due to repeated inserting of sync chord.The springy part inside is not going back to its normal position.
You can fix it your self by opening it(adapter only)
.If you are new to this take a photo of the wiring immediately after opening the shoe adapter to see the position if any wire breaks later on.
Do not give up .383 is great flash
