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

Re: failure of flash sync in F828?

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.

Re: failure of flash sync in F828?

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.

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?

How can i take black & White photo on dsc F -828


Sorry, the DSC-F828 doesn't have a black&white mode. However, just about any photo editing program will have the ability to convert color photos to black&white. Doing so on a computer will give you much better control over things like brightness and contrast than you would get if you just let the camera do it.

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.

MS Pro Cards For F828


As I understand, And for what others have said in this forum, the answer is no. I wanted to buy an Extreme III card, but there was an complete NO on this issue. The point is... if there is no Sony device that can use 80X, why do they sell it?????

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).

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.
