QuestionHow do you turn the sound off? There is no option to in the manual. It’s driving me crazy, I looked online to find out and couldn’t find that anywhere either.
- Answer I just figured it out as it doesn't tell you in the manual. Hold down the fn button until you get the fn - 01-0. Press down and change fn - 14-0 to fn 14-1. Sound should be off with those settings.
- Answer Yes, this will work. However keep in mind this is noisy if you are shooting weddings.
Questionhi! my flash came with a stand and it looks like plastic clear a case to go over the light. however, the case does not fit over the light. I am wondering what the case is for.
- Answer I think you’re referring to the diffuser. It should fit over the the front of the flash but its a task to get on. You almost have to force it.
- Answer The Sunpak DF4000U is a "Universal Flash" for Canon and Nikon cameras only. Your camera must have TTL (Nikon) metering. I own the Nikon D3500 DSLR and this flash is awesome. The High Guide Number of 190 feet@ ISO 100. Works great on and off camera and with LumiQuest light modifiers .
- Answer I bought my children this model of Sunpak flash. They've had great success with them. One uses a Nikon, the other a Canon. Both dslrs. To answer your question, the design of the camera or lens being used will determine the fastest shutter sync speed. Older film-type slrs synced at 1/60th sec due to the focal plane shutter design. Cameras and lenses that use the copal shutters sync at higher speeds. In theory, this flash should sync with whatever speed the camera /lens specifies. The newest technology such as mirrorless slrs are unknown to me. Good luck.
- Answer Hello James, In short, the answer to your question is yes it is comparable with Canon's T6, and many others. The SUNPAK DF4000U, for its price is an excellent addition to enhance your picture taking. I would purchase it again if need be, and I highly recommend this to anyone who takes pictures and has a camera that could use an external flash . I hope that I was able to help.
- Answer I have the Phottix Mitros +. It is probably more expensive than the Meike or Sunpak but you will have much more versatility for you and your camera. With the Photitx you are able to take it off camera by adding a trigger. The receiver is built into the flash. You can buy cheaper now but as you progress in your photography you will want to improve your equipment. Then your old cheaper flash will be packed away in a box. A little more money now will pay off in the end.
QuestionSometimes this flash works great, sometimes it has a VERY hard time recovering and actually flashing. How do you reset it? How can you ensure that the flash fires with every shot? I'm very confused and the manual isn't helping very much.
- Answer Make sure the batteries are fully charged and also check the power settings. If it is on highest power setting it will take longer to recycle.
- Answer Need to buy a new flash.
QuestionSo I just bought this. I have a T7 1500D. It works if I have it mounted on the hot shoe but I bought it exclusively as a remote flash. How do I get it to trigger OFF then camera on a tripod?????
- Answer For remote firing, press the left of the two middle buttons under the LCD screen until you see S1 or S2 appear. Now, when any other flash fires in the area, this flash will also fire. S1 is for if the triggering flash is in a manual mode and will flash only once. S2 is if the triggering flash uses a TTL mode or other pre-flash, so the Sunpak will ignite the pre-flash and fire when your shutter is opened.
- Answer Yes, the external flash is compatible with Canon m50.
