According to this site, the Sunpak 1600A is NOT USABLE with the FZ20: The tested voltage of the 1600A is 46.6V, which is WAY above the 24V max specified by Panasonic. Don't even try it...

IF you are working on them then you know the part number on the transformer. You may need to use Alibaba to see if the part is available in China.

Can I use sunpak 1600a flash (older) with Pentax k10d dslr ?

Yes, it's possible.
The flash sensor is calibrated for a 35mm optics & iso (asa).

You may have to "UP" your digital camera's iso sensitivity to 800 or so.

You will have to experiment with it at various settings.
Try using the "bracket" sewtting on the camera.
It takes three pictures when you press the shutter button; the three have different "values" of brightness.

The bracket setting is on the UP arrow, where you can choose "single frame", "continuous frame", bracket, etc.

Hope this helps!

Need manual for Sunpak 4000AF Power Zoom Flash

Regarding using the Sunpak 4000AF flash with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel, I can't get the flash to fire. There seems to be no combinations of settings that works to make the flash work. Could a weak battery in the Canon cause this? Does it require some other wire connector between the flash and the camera?

I know this is old technology now, I have a pocket digital for most of my uses, but I'd like to try bounce flash again on my old Rebel digital, and so I've gotten out my old camera and the flash I had bought for it. I had bought the Sunpak flash years ago and I honestly don't remember if I got it to work back then or not.

Thanks for any advice.

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.

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.
