I see their are a few more auctions for the Dx6490,7590 flash units on Ebay. I bought one from the same guy and it works great! I emailed him and I guess he has several more he is going to put on Ebay. And no reserve!! Here are the auctions....

Received my Sunpak auto 144pc,handle mount bracket and pc cord and instruction manual. All in very good condition and works great. For the huge sum of $19.08 even the wife can't complain. Thanks again for the link.

That's a nice flash set up Dan. I've started to make one of my own to use the HUGE vivatar flash I used to use on my old Pentax K-1000. I'll post a photo when I get it done, but I can see already it won't look as good as your's. Ketcha later.

Dan that looks a lot like my bedroom. Just kidden. I can't wait to get mine into operation. If I didn't already have a flash, the unit you have and Brian recomends would be the one I'd go with fer sure!!

PS I like the Avatar, but which one is you???

After seeing the other post where you explained your avatar I fully understand. My avatar comes from the saying that "If you can't run with the big dogs, you need to stay on the porch." Well when I finally was able to aford a full size pickup, I decided to get the Cummins diesel and heavy duty chassis with the full tow package. That was when I figured it wasn't a porch sitter,it was a big doginstead. I had a tag made that said that with one word changed to fit the Alabama way of pronouncing dog. As soon as I took the pickup to work everyone confused the name for the truck with me and started calling me Big Dawg. Hence the avatar. FYI for everyone!!

Where Can I get one of these flash units ?

dan279 May 17, 2005 1:34 PM

You can try ebay fromtime to time, or a local camera store which may also sell used equip..Or if you want to buy online,www.bhphotovideo.com, sells both new+used (used items depends on whats on hand at the time)and is a good place to deal with.

rfitrakis May 17, 2005 2:25 PM

What do I need to use one on this Kodak DX6490 ?



brianhare May 17, 2005 4:04 PM

See the pic above ,,it shows the bracket and flash needed only other thing needed is a pc synch cord,,,and the guy selling the flashes on ebay is a really nice fella,,i got mine from him over a year ago...he sold me the Sunpak 144pc with the cord and bracket...

I cannot decide between SunPak or the Vivitar DF 200. I'd appreciate opinions from anyone with experience with either.

Terry

Bob Mevis May 17, 2005 8:49 PM

TD, I have that same bracket for my sunpak. So far I'm happy with it.

Tsims, i've got the Sunpak 380 super and I'm real happy with it. it will light up to 60 feet. I haven't tried it that far yet. the head swivels 90 degrees up and down and turns almost a full 360 degrees, so you can bounce the flash right over your shoulder.

bigdawg May 18, 2005 12:34 AM

Tsims, I've got a little behind on my use of the new Vivitar DF200 flash. The times I've used it, it performed great. The beauty of it is that it doesn't require a sync cord to operate. When you shoot the flash that came with your camera it senses the flash and sets off its flash a micro second behind. It has 4 settings that will allow it to get all the way out to 102 feet or 31 meters. The bracket it came with is alright but I kinda like TD's bracket better as it would elevate it and even further reduce any chance for red eye. Also like the idea of folding it for storage. Great item TD!! But what is the brand and where can I get one. Terry if money is tight I'd get the sunpak, The DF200 costs around $62.00 from B&H. For some that is a little pricey for a flash. For my use I think I like the ability to set up the flash anywhere in the room and not be tied down to the sync cord. I've owned vivitar flashes before and have always gotten good service from them. I'll post some nighttime shots for everyone soon so they can judge for themselves if it works..

Sorry don`t know Dawg, I just did a search on ebay,I was bidding on 2 brackets at the same time,I think I won the better of the two.The woman I bought it off says it was from Japan

I just did a search on ebay UK, the seller will post worldwide

Great TD. I truly like that bracket. I think you're doing a service for the rest of us and want be sure to thank you up front!! Now if I can just get my wife over the fear of anything to do with Ebay I'll be able to shop there too!!
