Hi guys!

I would really appreciate any help at this point. I have a FZ20 and just purchased a suntax 328DTZ. It seems to come wihtout a manual for the flash so I am really confused as to how to use it. Yup, you guessed it, I am one heck of a sotong newbie!

Hope you can help with these questions:

1. What is the sync cable for and how do i jack it into the FZ20?
2. How do I force the flash to turn off should i want to?
3. Any idea where i can learn about external flashes and what all those meters (digits) mean?

Jim Davis would tell u dunno nevermind... haaa... not every one noes how to play with the flash... Just leave it in auto mode lahz...

See the switch in front under the centre flash...

When the colour is red = f2.8, Blue = f5.6, No colour centre = Manual..==> adjust the slides behind...

Actually i dunno how to use the external flash... every time got overexpose...
My Suntax 328DTZ still in hospital... so piss... tell me okie, can collect, then i got i see the flash okie... can flash, but become shaky... waste my time to go there... Haiz... still flashless...

Cheers...
