Hi all,

I'm looking for an external flash for my S9000. I tried a few used models at a camera store (Nikon, Minolta, etc) - but none of them fired (?). Checked in the manual, and seemed to be setting it up properly - but no flash. Help!

The speedlight works fine, and I have used the camera for quite some time and am very satisfied with it: http://flickr.com/photos/davebender/...7594159455059/

Also - what do I need for the camera to take infrared shots? I really want to get better in B&W. I love that grainy, razor-sharp B&W look.

Dave

Sunpak 383, Vivitar 283 or 285 seem to be popular. Fuji says you can use just about any flash unit that is available. You said you tried some used flash units. Did you enable external flash on your camera?

Thanks for the reply...

Well, I had thought I had enabled the external in the drop down menus...

Any ideas re the B&W?

I do all of my black and white work with software. If you use Photoshop, go to the link I am providing and take a look at the Black & White Pro plug in. Fred Miranda has some very nice plug-ins. And they aren't that expensive for what they do. I have purchased several of them. They also work with the new Photoshop CS3 that is available in beta right now.
