Older flash with Sony
« on: October 28, 2017, 08:49:24 PM »
I have Vivitar 352 and 283 flashes. I also have a Wein safe sinc and pixel hot shoe adapter. I would like to know how to test this combination to see if it is safe to use with my camera.

The problem with older flash is the remaining electrical energy that the capacitor release and you may damage your camera.
