Problem with AF-360FGZ Flash

Just some questions about this flash (using on a *istD). 1. Why it needs so long time to recharg? Everytime after the flash fires, it needs several seconds to charge before it can fire again. I'm using Sanyo 2300ma rechargeable AA batteries and all flesh-charged. Cannot use continues shoot w/flash :( 2. Set to high-syn flash is the only way I can get speed high than 1/150, no matter what lens I use. Is this right?

Re: Problem with AF-360FGZ Flash

I use 2500 rechargeables and it is ready to fire almost instantly. Are you trying to light up a big area and therefore using full discharge with each fire? Maybe this is why, but I don't know as I have never had the problem. I am quite surprised by how quickly my AF360FGZ is ready to fire again.

Yes. The *istD shutter can only provide X-sync for electronic flash up to 1/150 sec. The *istDS reaches 1/180 sec. "High speed" electronic flash is done by strobing the flash repeatedly during the period that the shutter slit is traveling across the focal plane, at th expense of cutting power output quite a bit.

Metz 58 AF with Nikon d90 wont flash


Hi, Bad news for you.

Try this.
  1. put new batteries in flash.
  2. turn flash on off camera.
  3. listen for capacitor to squeal (high pitched whistle). If you hear it it is charging. If not capacitor is bad.
  4. Also should see flash ready light come on. If it does not same as #3 above.
  5. If you pass #3 & 4# above press manual flash/check/test button on flash. No flash means bulb is out. It can be replaced.
Hope this fixed ya. Please rate. Good Luck! Comment back if you need further assistance.
