Thanks for the great tips. I was going to get a Wein Safety Sync butit cost ($119. CAD) almost as much as a good flash. I am opting to get a new flash. It is unfortunate because the Bell and Howell flash I had is a great flash. I will try a couple more places for the safety sync but it doesn't look promising.:sad:

thanks again

Dwight

Go to B&H Photo Video they sell the Wein Safe Sync for a good price ($49.95 USD), I have been using one on my Olympus E-300 for about 4 Months... It works GREAT!!

I bought my first computer in 1975 that I had to solder together. A Mits Altair designed by Ed Roberts.

I think my mind started to go digital then.

By the way. What does the term ' FILM' mean?

How effective is the Wein Safe Synch? Is it really effective at dampening the high voltage of these older flash units?

Do not know what circuitry the Wein uses , but all mineare based on the premise that you have to isolate the camera from the high trigger voltage of the flashgun. Usually with a thyristor.
