    Funny flare using Minolta lens with A100

    I notice this funny flare at the right side of the photos when I use my Minolta 28-85 lens with A100. Initially I thought it could be due to the way I bounce my flash. Tried different angles but the flare is still there. It happens on and off, not all the time though. Is this due to some...

    Can 5400HS work on 7D / 5D?

    I tried mounting my 5400HS on a 5D yesterday, it works! My question is, how accurate is the flash output? The first few shots I took, photos look overexposed...could be due to the exposure settings I think, not necessarily the flash. Comments please.
