Need some advice from you guys on flash units. Has the following questions in mind:
1) If lets say i have a DC(non-TTL hotshoe) which requires a flash unit with the following:
-The aperture can be set,
-External flash synchronization can be used,
-The ISO sensitivity can be set.
Does it mean I need a flash unit that has a dedicated mode called "Manual" (or whatever is the term)? If the flash only has "TTL" or/and "Auto" mode, does that means it totally won't work at all?
2) Thinking of getting a flash that possess the above requirements, plus the following:
-a reasonably powerful GN,
-vari-power (since no TTL, the flash will be quite strong at times)
-Bounce and Swivel capability.
Currently looking at Vivitar 285HV (but it can't swivel ) Read that the Sunpak 383 and 433D fit quite nicely in all aspects, but also heard that you can hardly find any of them locally. Any idea and advice on this?
Thanks in advance.
