Question about Bower (724AFM) for Minolta Maxxum, Dimage TTL Flash
Hi stage, I looked into your question a bit, and you don't appear to the be the only person who is having trouble with this flash (http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/printer_friendly_posts.asp?TID=17761). It seems like many other users are having the same problems with controlling the flash exposure. In my opinion, you should stick with flashes and other camera accessories approved by Minolta, and be very cautious when buying 3rd party accessories for your camera. Photography is one area where you get what you pay for -- a $40 flash will _not_ perform as well as a $400 dollar one (much to the dismay of photo students and photographers on a tight budget!). But, if you intend to keep using your 724afm, I suggest you manually control your exposure on the camera, to compensate for the lack of control over the flash.
