Question about Sunpak Auto 221d Flash - For Canon Film Cameras
It's an old flash my dad had and I want to use it on my new T3i. Is this safe?

probably in MANUAL mode only.... my Nikon and Canon's work with the pz4000 (at a save trip voltage I may add) but in a manual mode as mentioned above.....

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.
For more Information about the different Minolta/Sony Flash Metering modes cf. http://www.mhohner.de/sony-minolta/flashcomp_mm.php

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!
