Failure of flash sync in F828?

Hello everyone. My flash sync on my 828 failed this summer while shooting a wedding. Has anyone else had any experience with/of this? How has Sony been in servicing things like this? Many thanks, Chuck Garrettson

I've read of this happening occasionally, so I keep my HVL32 permanently mounted on-camera with no probs. Makes the whole unit a tad heavier, but you get used to it pretty quickly and you avoid the chance of the hot shoe/contacts becoming loose.

I experience similar failure sometimes. I un-mount the flash (or adapter) from the hot shoe and put it back, and am back in business. The reason is, at least in my case. loose contact, resulting from movement of the flash/adapter in the shoe.

Ihave a sony flash DSCHVL-F32X whch I use on my Sony DSC-828. This has never given trouble but it now seems to refuse to connect to the camera


Try resetting the camera?

Other items you might have missed:

Fresh batteries in the flash..inserted the right way.
Is the flash indicating an error code? if so it could be bad connection between clash and camera.. Is external flash selected in the menu?

Flash blows out the image!!!


hi ,

it could be possible that the light sensor (the device under the red transparent plastic) in front of the flash is already failing. to test,set the camera mode to auto then cover the sensor with your hand and do some test shots, the images should be overexposed if the sensor is covered, then shoot some photos without covering the sensor, the images should be properly exposed , otherwise it might already be a light sensor failure .

PROBLEM: F828 & external flash


I think this is due to the TLL preflash of the 828 internal flash. Each time it actually fires 2 flashes. First one for metering and second one for actual exposure. First "fake" flash probably trigers your external flash which is too early. Slution... hmm i think there are afordable slave adapters out there which detect the TTL preflash, ignore it and fire the external flash on the right timing along with the main flash. cost.. about few tens $ i think. they can detect also infrared light so you can mount IR filter on your internal flash to prevent interfering with the exposure...

F828 - Movie Mode


By frame size and frame rate I think. The F828 (in highest quality mode) takes 30 frames per second (fps) at 640x480 pixels. In the US televisions display video at 30 FPS (actually it is 60 fps but only half the frame gets displayed at a time so it nets out to 30.) I'm not swure what dedicated camcorders do internally but I've run my F828 videos on my TV (27" non-HDTV) and they look great. I've got no interest in buying a dedicated camcorder. Things might be different if I had an HDTV.

DSC-F828 Battery Latch


I suspect if you write a cordial note to Sony they just might fix it even though it is a few days out of warranty. I personally have had extremely good service from Sony (Sony Germany that is).

Regarding remote control, sorry to say but it's very limited. With RM-VD1 you can only: ON/OFF Shutter release 1st and 2nd step Zoom in/out (except with F828 which has manual zoom) Rec/Stop (only with a camcorder)

F828 Expected life in shots or years


I've had my 828 since Christmas 2003 and have shot over 21,000 frames with it so far and the camera is still working good as new. Sony doesn't publish any expected lifespan, and it would entirely depend on how you use the camera. Is it mounted on a tripod and never moved, or is it banging around in the bottom of a backpack for example? I haven't seen many reports of the 828 breaking for anyone on STF yet that I can remember anyway. I dont see why it wouldn't last for 5 years or more. It's a solid, well built machine.
