Re: Problems with sync cords in the studio

Since synch cords are famous for wearing out, perhaps a new one?

I purchasing this flash from b & h and want to know if it will sync with my studio lights slave function so both flashes will be fired at the same time? I figure I'll have to use the camera in manual...


Presuming you bought a shoe-mount flash for your Sony A900 and set the camera and flash to manual so there's no pre-flash to prematurely trigger your strobes, and presuming your studio lights have built-in optical slaves, you should be all set.

How to sync d60 with d-lite kit


You can get an AS-15 Sync Terminal Adapter from your favorite Nikon dealer, which slips into the hot shoe and provides a sync terminal.

Charger stopped working


Try cutting a small thin card the same size as the top of your battery. Try a card no thicker than a playing card. Place it on top of you battery then close the battery door. This should give the battery a stronger contact, and it may work.

Can a metz cl45 external flash gun be used on the 9600? Thanks Steve


Without knowing what a 9600 is I cannot be sure, but the cl45 has a flsh connection cord to be conected to your cameras X sync port. This means the camera will only trigger the flash and the flash unit does all the calculations on its own (ie it does not work as a dedicated flash unit in this mode). You may be able to get a hot shoe connector to get some of teh cameras functions controlling the flash unit, but the amount of control the camera can send to the flash unit will depend on how old the flash unit is and whether it has these functions to start with.

Contact Metz direct and ask them. Thier site is located here:

Good luck.

Note: I had an old one of these years ago (pre Digital) and it was a great flash unit.

Does the DiMAGE A1 support any external flash including studio light?


Yes, it does. It is usable with any external flash using sync cord to sync terminal. (sync voltage: below 400V, correspond to antipolarity)

You also may have a faulty hot shoe adapter or pc cord. Check them with an ohm meter, or with an old 35 mm camera. Or just short out the hot shoe contacts with a piece of metal and see if the strobes flash.

Sync switching voltage


No, the E-10/20N has a built in filter that protects the camera from high switching voltage.

Household type connector


You will need to purchase a sync cord that will separate apart (usually at the middle) with a standard two-prong connector. Just simply disconnect the sync cord, turn it 180 ° and plug it in. (These cords can be purchased at www.paramountcords.com)

Studio Strobe not firing with Coolpix


The Coolpix line of cameras require a "tip positive" sync connection to an external strobe unit (when using the Nikon AS-15 Flash Sync Adapter). On some external Studio Strobe units the sync polarity is easy to change because of the type of plug: On this type of connector simply turn the plug around and insert it with the male pin connectors in the other holes. Other types of connectors (such as the standard "phono" plug) are not generally changeable by the user. If the Coolpix does not fire an external strobe check with the strobe manufacturer for sync polarity info.
