    Can you also give me some advice on using flash units????

    I have a Bower 724AFM flash that is "supposed" to work with my Dimage 7.
    Set the Pre-flash TTL, if you have done this I do not know what is wrong

    SOLIGOR DG 340 DZ works with minolta, but sometimes has problems with over and underexposure
    You must also use a diffuser with a wide angle

    Thanks for asking Chris, I try to pop by as and when I can. I wanted to answer some posts in the Video section today, but was caught up at work.

    Well, things have been slower at work. Our mad shoot schedules lasted from Feb - Mar and it's all post-production work now. We've been shooting a short series to educate youths on the issue of Gender uniqueness and Same Sex Attraction based on Christian beliefs. I shot something 'fun' last month.

    We had something akin to an Apprentice challenge in January where 17 - 19 yr old students having vacation joined us, and the team that I was in charge of was assigned to conceptualize and produce viral videos for online and mobile phones. They did quite a fantastic job, 4 videos in 3 wks or so!

    Have you considered Metz flashes? I used one a long while back and they're good, and works on most if not all brands of cameras.

    Thanks guys!!

    The only flash units that really work are the Minolta 3600 and 5600 series and my photography is not really income producing (At weddings I use the camera to grab a few shots that I can use on titles or DVD covers)
    Minolta flashes are rare here are expensive too!! I bought my camera used (on eBay) so I have decided to stay "old school" and found a Hanimex TZ36 unit which has auto functions but I'll use it as a manual flash. It also has a low trigger voltage which is critical for Digital cameras... There were a bunch of Metz units on eBay but most have trigger voltages above 100v which would fry digital camera sync circuits!!! However you can get a hotshoe adapter that allows a standard flash to fit onto a dedicated hotshoe and it also has a neat voltage limiter built in.

    Thanks for all the help Maciek, really appreciated!!!! I will definately also make myself a nice battery pack to go under the camera. Your's is really cool!!! I put the Bower flash on eBay and so far the bidding has gone over the price I paid for it!!
