Sunpak 266d for Minolta-Ricoh

I just picked up this camera and flash at a yard sale and I haven't a clue how to use it. I can't figure out what everything is on the back, I can't figure out how to turn it on, and I can't figure out how the batteries go in it. I have looked on the net, but I can only find flashes for sale. Where can I find out how to use it??

Hi,

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.

Firstly, be sure to check flash voltage. Your 30D may accept max 6V so that your camera can be shot if the flash unit has higher voltage than 6V.
1. Use low ISO to keep low noise....around f/8 or more depends on your need and how much DOF you want.....Set the shutter speed around 1/125 to your max speed to stop any movement (your subject or camera itself shaking).
2. Above is set in Manual mode (iso100, f/8 1/125 or 1/250), then you just need to leave the flash to work in TTL mode.
3. It needs battery, the connection is for syncing to trigger and release a proper flash power (in TTL mode).
Hope this help!

Can I use my Sunpak auto 555 thyristor on my Canon Rebel EOS T5? I've tried using it with mixed results. Sometimes it performs beautifully; other times it washes out the photo.

A lot of older flash units for film cameras wont work on digital cameras. Old flashes dont have compatible electronics for modern digital cameras. Flash sync is a normal issue. Try setting the camera shutter speed to 1/60 or 1/100 and try that. The trigger voltage may be too high. To use the sunpak 555 you will need the TTL connector to the multiple contact points on the hotshoe. It might be cheaper to get a remote slave for the flash and use it off camera as a small studio flash. http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Sunpak_555

Can I use the Sunpak auto 221d dedicated for minolta on a canon dslr?

No. The flash's trigger voltage is much too high. You could use something like this to isolate the units, however you won't get any of the automatic functions.

I bought this unit last summer in Cork, Ireland, but the chain of shops have closed. I now want to send it for repair assuming *** is under warranty and don't know who to contact.

This is the web site http://www.sunpak.jp/english/ it has support, PDF manual downloads and contact information. I would suggest contacting them and finding where the repair/warranty depot is closest to your location. I would think that if you still have the bill of sale that's is all you need.
Best of luck with it. In closing in all the Sunpak flash units I've used for both film and digital only one gave problems and only after it was dropped from the umbrella mount.

Will my sunpak PZ4000 flash trigger voltage harm my nikon D50 circuitry?

The Sunpak PZ 4000 and 5000 were made for film cameras. I have one for my EOS film cameras. It works just fine. I know this series of flashes was not made for the digital cameras. It likely will not harm your camera if the flash is designed for your camera brand. But some functions will not work.
For example, do not use a flash for Minolta on a Nikon.
You risk damaging your cameras electronics or frying the flash.
Get their PZ 20, PZ 30, PZ40 or PZ 42X for your digital camera.

becRN,

take the camera to a good camera store and try any in your price range, the manual should state the camera's that are compatible. note that many new model flashes do not work on older camera's.
