    Default Cheap good slave flash... with enuff reach...

    Looking for a cheap cheap mount flash, iso mount. no need TTL, just need manual adjustments.

    cos as some may know... i bought the RF set, den bought minolta convertor for my minolta flash, but couldn't trigger... and also have umbrella holder, stands, umbrellas and such... so its a waste if i couldn't use it, so i think its better for me to just buy a cheap flash with enuff reach... maybe 50gn ones... any idea who produce such? dun tell me to buy SB800 or 580EX hor...

    cos the RF works with the sunblitz ring flash, think it'll work for rest... but it just dun work on my minolta 5600 & 3600, i tested the convertor, short it, it works... so no problem with contacts, so left with circuitry liao lor...

    Strange, it works on my studio flash, and my metz flashes too, but mine is brought from Ruby, very similar with what you have. single channel and not even have a hotshoe mount

    Have you try with a sync cable to connect the receiver and your flash? maybe is just the hotshoe has a poor contact with your flash?

    If your minolta flashes has a pc terminal, maybe you can try connect it to the receiver, if this also fails,
    maybe your minolta flashes not compatible with this RF trigger. Can try other brands flash (canon or nikon) to confirm this again.

    about 100?

    anyway, i dun need it to be triggered using flash, i just need it to have manual adjustments. cos using a RF trigger & receiver already. just that my minolta have delayed response, so cannot use with the trigger & receiver.

    For me I'd get a used SB-26.

    One of e best n powerful during itz time. Perhaps still is. Full manual, auto, TTL n wireless slave.

    More like SB800 only dat it does not support d-TTL n i-TTL.

    Juz my humble opinion.
