Slave Flash
I have a Canon A75 and would like to add a slave flash. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good, reasonably priced flash that would serve this purpose? Does anyone have any experience with using a slave flash with the Canon A75? Thanks for your replies...

I too have an A75. I used a slave on many occasions when shooting 35mm and 2 1/4". I just got the A75 and was wondering about using a slave myself. I have an old Vivitar slave trigger and probably use a Vivitar 2800, 252, or 283. I have choices, just haven't gotten to try it yet. It was a Christmas present. I was originally planning on buying a G5 or G6 that can take an aux strobe...

I HAVE A CANON A70 AND USE A SLAVE FLASH AND ALSO A SLAVE TRIGER, JUST TURN OFF THE RED EYE MODE IN THE CAMERA FOR THE PRE FLASH AND IT GIVES YOU A GREATER FLASH RANGE, YOU MAY HAVE TO SHOOT IN MANUAL MODE. ALSO BE AWARE THAT OTHER FLASHES WILL SET OFF YOUR SLAVE FLASH. (THE ONLY DRAW BACK WHEN USING SLAVE FLASH EQUIPMENT.) R. LARRAZOLO..

I like the shirt-pocketable Sony T7. It's good for outdoor pictures but not so good when used indoor with the weak built-in flash. I'm hoping add-ons like Canon's HF-DC1 or Vivitar's DF120 slave flash units can help. Many reviews of Canon cameras list the HF-DC1 as available accessory but the flash itself was never reviewed. Can anyone who knows or uses them please chime in...

Hello Need advise on slave flash or external flash units. On several camera sites they state flash units that will work with ALL and ANY digital cameras. My question is on 2 older Sony Mavicas cameras. The Mavica FD200 and the Mavica FD-95. I was wondering if anybody here has had any experince on these so called work with any camera flash units and how they work and how the attach to my 2 older cameras. Thank you. m chambers..

I use a kodak dx6490.Is there a slave flash for this camera? how about a bracket?..

I'd be a little hesitant to be sure any flash will work with "all" cameras but check the camera specs to determine what preflash modes are used and if they are needed for focus or can be disabled, then how many flashes are used before the picture. Depending on the slave units, some can be programmed to count flashes others just respond to the first flash they see. If the camera doesn't have a shoe to use to mount a flash, then select one of the digital slaved flashes that has a bracket which will attach to the tripod socket...
