Why going for an expensive flash if a cheap one can also do the trick, so I thought, so I bough me a "Bower 724AFM" via Ebay (the M in AFM stands for Minolta - similar flashes for Canon AFC or Nikon AFN ...).
Similar flash still on Ebay:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=7531050061
The flash powers up and the test flash works, but when I connect it to my A200, the flash:| does not produce the exact amount of light it is supposed to (burnt images), although it is supposed to be a TTL system.
Think the flash is also sold as Incablitz 724 AFM (looks exactly like it).
The Ebay seller cannot explain what I do wrong - can any of you?
